We booked into Dongola House for a night as we wanted to be reasonably close to The Greenhouse, where we had booked to eat. Although the owners were away for the night we were more than adequately welcomed and looked after by Derrick. We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of wine whilst the admin was attended to.

Mike and Sally provide everything you could want. A warm welcome, lovely location, comfortable beds, wonderful breakfast on the patio and so conveniently positioned for visits to well-known wineries and the Kirstenbosch gardens. Our third stay at Dongola House and we will be back!

We found ourselves made very welcome by the proprietors and staff who were very friendly and most helpful. The accommodation was immaculate and we enjoyed breakfast by the pool with views over the surrounding countryside. Constantia is very convenient for visiting other parts of the Cape including Simonstown, the Cape of Good Hope etc. We would rate this as one... More

Dongola House is superb. Mike and Sally were very helpful. The beds are very comfortable and the room was of the highest standard. We really enjoyed our delicious breakfasts on the beautiful terrace, looking out at the view. We will be going again!

Dongola House is the most excellent of guesthouses as far as we are concerned. Everything is of the best quality be it hosts, bedrooms, breakfasts and facilities, even down to the recommendations for eating locally or using the local taxi firm. What more can be said.

I have stayed in a lot of places around the world. The Dongola Guest House is wonderful. Mike and Sally own (and run) a beautiful, well-kept guest house that is located close to the Constantia wine area and a short drive to Cape Town City on the M3. The breakfast is delicious and the view of Constantia Berg mountain (one... More

Into our 4th month of an eleven month European and African trip Dongola House and Mike and Sally take first place in BEST B&B! Their hospitality, accommodations and the views from the patio where breakfast is served were all "top drawer". The breakfasts were made to order and divinely served. Mike and Sally provided top drawer concierge pampering during our... More
