After reading the rave reviews, our expectations were high. Dongola House exceeded them. It was everything we hoped for and more: beautiful setting, great breakfast, helpful service, and luxurious room.

We stayed in Dongola House for four nights and couldn't be happier with our choice. Sally & Mike are the great hosts and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Sally even drove us in her own car to the nearest stop of the hop off/hop on bus, and picked us up again at night. Our room... More

I stayed 1night on a business trip and found everything exceeded what you would get in a hotel. Secure parking, personal attention, spotlessly clean, beautiful setting and great breakfast. Loved the dogs too.

Sally is a very personable host. We were warmly welcomed with a drnk of coffee and a tasty biscuit served by her husband. Three beautiful Labradors completed the welcoming reception. Two of them were on retirement from being guide dogs for the blind. They were kept out of the way for guest comfort, I suspect, but next time we hope... More

Spent 10 nights here early August unseasonally good weather. The place is very comfortable, neat and tidy and everything works. The staff are friendly and reliable and breakfast menu covers all tastes. Sally, the owner, can give some really good local information. The Constantia setting is very peaceful and quiet and in summer the pool would be a big plus.... More

We loved it so much we extended our stay, and found our hosts Sally, Mike and Natalie relaxed, friendly and helpful. As we stayed at Dongola in the winter, we weren't able to make use of their fabulous pool, but felt we made up for that by spending many evenings in the elegant and comfortable lounge, sipping wine and warming...

Everything about Dongola is excellent, most of all the hospitality of Sally, Mike & their staff. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. A technology wobbly with my reservation was sorted without much of a todo. Given that I start too early for most of Cape Town, Sally prepared breakfast trays each morning. I will certainly be back, business or... More

I booked on booking.com late at night then had to cancel next morning. That incurred a mandatory cancellation fee. Sally went out of her way with lots of emails to booking.com to waive the fee, even though she wasn't going to see any revenue from me (at least not this time). She didn't have to do this, but did it... More

Luxury personified...extra long comfy beds, fluffy towels, generous bath, private patio...all overlooking the most exquisite view of majestic mountains, paddocks and green belt. Birdsong, freshly brewed coffee and a gourmet breakfast. What a way to spend a gentle weekend in Constantia.

Our first visit to South Africa and staying in Dongola House was very impressive. It’s located close enough to major access routes and near to the Kirstenbosch Gardens. There is nice view of the mountain, it’s a quiet and peaceful location with beautiful garden and pool and a secure parking. The rooms were well-appointed and comfortable. Staff are very helpful...
