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

I moved to Cape Town with my wife and two kids and our property in Tokai was somewhat infested. Mike and Sally were more than accommodating when we needed a place of refuge while our house was being fumigated. Apart from providing us with a fantastic family sized room at such short notice, they offered assistance, support, contacts and even... More
