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

This is our third stay at Dongola and certainly not the last! You always receive a fabulous welcome from Mike, Sally and all of the wonderful staff. 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.

For the past several visits to the Western Cape we have stayed in Franschoek but this year decided to go a bit farther afield, spend some time nearer to Cape Town (where our adult children were also visiting) and were fortunate to get space at Dongola House in Constantia. To be clear, we appreciated and truly enjoyed Dongola House. The... More

We had a fantastic stay at Dongola House – we were warmly welcomed by Natasha, and later by Sally and Mike, the owners - and their two very friendly (ex guide dogs for the blind) labradors. The good sized room we were in was separate from the main house and had a pleasant bathroom with bath and separate shower. Wi-fi... More

Where do I start...are you looking for a Guest House that feels more like your own home...one where service is impeccable and given top priority?.... We used Tripadvisor to look for something that not only suited our budget, but something that had that bit extra in service and quality. That we found at Dongola; and more. From the time we... More

We attended a wedding in Cape Town in November 2014, and stayed at Dongola House, Constantia. What a welcoming place to stay, everything was 5 Star. Nothing was too much trouble, from the sumptuous breakfasts to the helpful tips we were given on places to go. It all made for a very enjoyable stay. We will definitely stay again when... More

My stay at Dongola House was excellent. The hosts were wonderful and attentive. My fiancé and I were extremely happy with the accommodations and friendliness of the staff. The view from our room was majestic and absolutely breath taking. I would definitely stay at Dongola House next time I'm in Cape Town. Thank you Sally and Mike. Mamoso

We stayed at this delightful guesthouse 4 nights in December, and enjoyed it so much. The location is perfect if you come by car; the neigbourhood is peaceful and safe, beautiful surroundings, and it is an excellent starting point for exploring the region. The rooms are spotlessly clean, well equipped and have wonderful views of the Table Mountain.The hosts, Mike... More
