My boyfriend and I found this B&B accidentally, by tripadvisor, because we had suddenly one more night in Capetown to spend. It was a great stay, the owners are superfriendly and it was quickly clear to us they have a huge heart. We also loved their dogs and the view from the garden is stunning! The rooms are spacious and... More

We enjoyed our stay and your hospitality. The breakfast was good and the room and bathroom are well equipped and comfortable. However, it was cold in the room and an air conditioner would be a big improvement (inverter type is actually very efficient too). The lock on the cupboard door needs to be replaced too.

Had the pleasure of spending a weekend at Dongola House before a month-long work trip to Zambia - and I could not have imagined a better place to spend my last few days in Cape Town. Located in a beautiful section of the southern suburbs of Cape Town, just minutes away from the winelands and hiking trails of Table Mountain,... More

Breakfast was most sumptious we would starve the night before so we could eat more! We visited Sally during winter so the pool was not put to good use, Nonetheless, the property is situated in a great neighbourhood, safe even for a morning jog. Sally has a heart of gold and it's evident in the activities she campaigned for. Her... More

Great rooms, neat and tidy, very soft and fluffy bed. The shower is nice and big, lovely view of the mountain, very relaxing atmosphere, great service and friendly people. Close to M3 highway, perfect for business in Constantia. Loved my stay.

Stunning location, beautiful house, sleek and well equipped kitchen, and most importantly, beds that wrap you in comfort as the Cape Town winds lull you to sleep. Genuinely the most beautiful guesthouse I've ever encountered with owners that are charming, welcoming and attentive to anything you might need during your stay. Cannot recommend enough!

It was for me the perfect overnight stay: a very heartily welcome, a warm and cosy room and a perfect breakfast. I regretted not staying longer to enjoy the garden and the scenery. I will definitely recommend this B&B.

We found this very very nice place by accident, we were so lucky. We spent 2 days in a very comfortable room. We enjoyed the refined touch in every thing, breakfast was just what we like. Thank you Mike for your personal touch. We shall definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Our stay at Dongola was just amazing. Thank you so very much! Cannot have asked for more. Views are wonderful, Rooms are stunning, great creature comforts. Breakfast was unbeatable and hospitality could not be faulted. Well done! 5 Star without a doubt and so reasonably priced.We will be back for another relaxing stay.
