We have stayed in many fantastic accommodations in and around Cape Town, almost all of which we have left saying we'd happily return to; Dongola House is the only one we ever actually have. In fact, last year when they couldn't fit us in for the dates we needed we chose to visit another continent entirely, rather than compromise! Our... More

Due to the very personal engagement of Sally and Mike we could spent relaxing holidays at Dongola House. The property is ideal situated and well kept. Sally and Mike know their business and they gave us important tips about restaurants, hot spots and events and they did the bookings we requested. Thanks for everything. We would like to come again... More

We stayed here for four nights. Mike, Sally and Natalie looked after us so well. The breakfasts were delicious and we were made feel very welcome. Could easily have stayed longer. We were out and about every day and our room was always lit and waiting for our return.

We were lucky we found Dongola House by personal recommendation, we were not disappointed its a gem! A perfect place to unwind and acclimatise after a long flight. Mike & Sally could not have done more to help us find our feet in South Africa, making reservations for restaurants, concerts etc for us in advance of our arrival. Only regret... More

Both the owners Mike and Sally and all the staff are tremendously helpful. The views from all areas of Dongola are wonderful and it is extremely relaxing. Breakfast is good and plenty to do in the area if you have a car. Outstanding service from all and thoroughly recommended

Stayed here for the last 4 nights. Mike is a superb host. Location is beautiful. Natalie is so warm and helpful. Accommodation is excellent. Breakfast is great. Highly recommend if you have a car. Views are outstanding. Ex-blind dog Labradors pop into one's rooms and are lovely to spend time with. Looking forward to returning. (My only complaint is that... More

Dear Jeff, thank you so much for the "padded" review. I also would like to be able to do a short but sweet review sometimes. Glad we made you feel at home especially the Ex Guide dogs who are actually not allowed in the rooms but due to us being full of dog lovers for the last two months have... More

All of the rooms are impeccable, Mike and Sally always seem to think of small details in your room that make a difference to your stay. The rooms are cleaned daily to an... More

My second visit to Dongola, as expected the welcome was excellent. The rooms are large & well appointed, TV, fridge, etc. Pool was a welcome respite in hot weather. Breakfasts great. Hosts are eager to assist their visitors, it's the little things that count & they're taken care of willingly. No hesitation to visit again in future.
