I stay at Dunkley House regularly when on business is Cape Town. On this occasion I had guests for breakfast and I want to commend the kitchen staff for their excellent service and the way they accommodated us. I love the modern interior of the guest house and it is always a treat to stay there.

The most expensive room in the hotel opens out onto the dining room. With all of the breakfast noise, count on never sleeping in after 7am. The dustbins are also right outside the bedroom windows, and the kitchen staff start rattling those around 6:30. I would not stay here again.

What a lovely place to stay. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts, delish. Especially the giant pancakes. The apartment was clean, although the bathroom plumbing link did give me a heart stopping moment or two. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

I often use Dunkley House when I come to Cape Town on business. I find the staff very friendly and even after the second time I used this guest house they remembered my name and welcomed me using it. The breakfast menu is small but when the food arrives it is excellent. The rooms are modern and clean. They also... More

Dunkley House is fabulous. It is modern, clean, comfortable, set in lovely surroundings and close to the city centre. An easy place to relax around the cute pool setting, most welcome after a busy day. Lovely helpful friendly staff. We've stayed before and we will again.
