Fantastic retreat to retire to after exploring in town. The location is convenient to all downtown locations which we loved - very close to Company Gardens, easy to get to Bree and Long Streets and to Bo Kapp. Taxis to the botanical gardens, waterfront and Table Mountain, but taxis are inexpensive. The pool setting in the forecourt is fantastic -... More

We enjoyed our bright, nicely furnished room and the excellent breakfast. The location is ideal as safe and in walking distance to some nice restaurants, a beautiful park and the town center. We will be back!

Even though I only get to stay at Dunkley House once a year (or even less often) all the staff remember me and welcome me back with genuine friendliness. Eunice's breakfasts are as delicious as always as are the home-based biscotti. Nothing compares to the fabulous coffee with the biscotti while seated on my own private patio.

I stayed for six nights in August and cannot say enough good things ... the wooden-floored room was large, elegant and comfortable (and especially after I worked out how to use the heating on a cold winter's night and discovered the underfloor heating in the spacious bathroom); every member of staff with whom I dealt went out of his and...
