Had a lovely stay again. Very friendly and attentive staff, and looks like they've done a bit of an update of the rooms which is nice. Perfect location, lovely little pool, nice and quiet but not too far from everything. Breakfast pancakes were delicious, comfy bed and good aircon (as it's been pretty scorching!). I'll be back again next year!... More

Arrived at Dunkley house at 3PM. Had to wait outside for 10min as no one answered the door bell, whilst standing there someone was yelling at a staff member because something got stolen. Tried to check in had to wait another 20 min because the apartmemt was not ready yet.

I have stayed in this little guest house a few times now while in Cape Town on business and always enjoy the lovely, clean and comfortable rooms. Their breakfasts are fresh, wholesome and well presented and the staff generally accommodating and go out their way to make one feel welcome!

We enjoyed the stay at Dunkley house. Comfortable rooms and nice pool area to refresh! The location is perfect, close to Long Street / Kloof Street with lots of restaurants and bars. Breakfast was great! The rooms located downstairs are noisy in the morning because they are just next to the breakfast area. Try to get a room upstairs or... More

We had a wonderful stay at Dunkley House in the beginning of the year. The room was very clean and the personnel extremely helpful. Location was good - very quiet area, but not too far away from downtown or good restaurants.

We had two great nights at Dunkley House. The staff and service was great. Our room a little tired and needing a bit of love. Maybe a curtain over the skylight might help.But all in all very enjoyable.

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
