It was a wonderful evening in beautifully kept rooms and welcomed by big smiles and hugs. Sally and Mike are very accommodating and have done all they can to make it a comfortable and convenient stay. They take huge pride in their guest house and are genuine in their service.

When the manager, Natalie, comes out to your car to great you and gives you a hug, then it is like coming home. Beautiful rooms, wonderful views and magnificent breakfasts all conveniently located in close proximity to shopping malls, mountains, botanical gardens, the sea, wine farms or almost anything else on your wish list. Hosts Mike and Sally certainly know... More

Dongola House is absolutely faultless, and Sally & Mike have thought very hard about making your stay as comfortable as possible. Every possible convenience is there and we will certainly recommend this first class Guest House to friends and family, and will stay there again ourselves.

We loved our stay at Dongola House, superb hosts, brilliant setting, amazing room and comfort. We were met at the gate, welcomed with a drink, enjoyed the warm sitting room, and slept so well. Breakfast was beyond any expectation. Thank you Sally!

You know you've found somewhere special when the only fault you can find is a spelling mistake on the breakfast menu!!! (There is no "u" in chorizo!!!). Sally, Mike and Natalie have made a splendid effort in the 6 years since Sally and Mike bought this lovely place in the idyllic shadow of the Constantia mountain. My room was fantastic;... More

Such a friendly welcome by man and dog! Such a beautiful setting, everything neat and welcoming. Heaters were warming our room while we were chilling in the lounge. Rooms are spacious and bathroom of another class! Had such a good rest away from the noise of the city in such a delicious fluffy bed!!! Wow,what a treat!

A wonderful place to stay in a wonderful part of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Sally and Mike (and their friendly, efficient staff), will take very good care of you. There are three great reasons to stay at the House. 1. The spectacular view from the garden. 2. Very comfortable beds. 3. The dogs.

Dongola house is a fantastic guest house and very reasonably priced. We booked all the rooms for a weekend at the end of April where we stayed with family and friends.

This is an absolutely super place to stay. Mike sent driving directions from the airport which was really helpful, and location-wise, it is as easy to get into Cape Town as it is to go south to False Bay. The en-suite rooms were beautifully decorated, and the views of the Constantiaberg mountain from the garden were stunning. We had an... More
