The Dongola House is a lovely bed & breakfast with stunning views of the mountains. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The service was outstanding and the breakfast was excellent. Definitely a place we will visit again.

The property here is beautiful, with great views of nature in the backyard and charming decor in the rooms and common areas. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, staying up late to greet us after arriving on a late flight. Natalie, who cooked breakfast each day, was so friendly, and an absolutely amazing chef! The location is in a... More

Beautifull "country house" with magnificent views of the nearby mountains. Woke to the sound of birdsong and neighing horses. One night and already feels like a few peaceful weeks of holiday. Have extended my stay by 4 extra days. Serenity, luxury, gourmet breakfast and highly professional care by owners and hosts Sally and Mike. We love this haven of tranquility.

My wife and I spent the last two nights of our this year's SA trip at the Dongola House and it was a very good choice. The ambience of the place is just perfect and the friendly and helpful owners do everything to make your stay a real good one.

I had a wonderful stay at Dongola House during March. My friends were travelling with an infant, and the entire team went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Natalie and Rochelle were absolutely fantastic, and treated us like family! Dongola House will definitely be my first... More

If you are happy to spend about 25min in your car to get to Cape Town centre, in return for close proximity to the Constantia vineyards and, more importantly, to enjoy the care of the best hosts you could wish for, look no further: Sally and Mike have turned Dongola House, a sprawling private residence, into the most welcoming and...

As a regular traveller I get to see a lot of guest houses and without a doubt this is one of the best places I have stayed at for a very long time. The service and attention to detail was second to none, Sally and her team are extremely attentive and go way above and beyond what I would consider... More
