We were a group of six, spending three weeks in South Africa, covering some of the Garden Route, then the winelands and Cape town. We were based in Franschhoek, but felt we were just too far out to comfortably cover the Cape, so on recommendation we booked a three night stay at Dongola House, and wow we were pleased we... More

We loved Dongola House. Mike & Sally were very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. The breakfasts were wonderful and all the staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would definitely recommend this marvellous guest house to all our friends and family. We'll hopefully go back there in the not too distant future.

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday in South Africa, spending a week at Dongola. Neither my husband or myself could find anything to fault with this bed and breakfast. Mike and as Sally run a tight ship with great attention to detail but which results in providing a relaxed and friendly establishment. The rooms we saw... More

I always write the same review because I always have the same amazing time at Dongola House with Mike and Sally and every one who works there. It simply can not be beat. I've stayed with Mike and Sally a number of times ( it seems like more to them I am sure) and every time the rooms, the gardens,... More

This guesthouse is just perfect! It is a little bit outside of the city center (15 minutes drive) so you do need a car to get around, but it is definitely worth it! The view is spectacular and the rooms are just so comfortable. We were back from a 3-weeks safari camping trip and were so happy to have selected... More

We were greeted with a cup of tea and biscuits and were then shown to our very comfortable room. The deckchairs provided overlooked a beautiful vista and we were brought ice cold water. The beds were extremely comfortable and the linen was top quality. The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious and the service was excellent. The main draw card was the... More

Dongola House - the best place I have stayed at in Cape Town. Why? Stunning views, spacious comfortable rooms, exceptionally great hosts, lovely breakfasts at the poolside. What a perfect place to stay after doing Hoerikwaggo hike in Cape Town. A very big thank you to Mike & Sally. Will definitely stay there when we are Cape Town again.

This was a delightful introduction to South Africa and the western Cape for our 40th wedding anniversary. Even before arrival, Sally provided excellent help and suggestions, by email, for local restaurants and possible sights to see in our 3 day/4 night short visit. She and Mike were perfect hosts and should be proud of their boutique B&B and the personal... More
