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...

Dongola Guest House is one of the friendliest places I've ever stayed at. Sally and Mike really get hospitality right. The guesthouse is beautiful, comfortable, conveniently located, clean, luxurious and a great home away from home. I would highly recommend this destination.

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.
