We had an interview at the American Consulate at 9:15 on 13 Aug 2015 in the morning and decided to find accommodation close to it. Dongola House was the perfect place to stay! Many thanks to Mike and Sally for their hospitality, great room and good food. The breathtaking views of mountain and sky will surely be remembered!

Returning to Dongola was a refreshing experience. We always love spending time at the guest house and in and around the southern cape enjoying local restaurants and winery. Mike and Sally are excellent hosts with a real flair for hospitality and made us feel right at home. Looking forward to coming back again!

Phenomenal way to spend my last night in Cape Town before a one month camping trip in Zambia. Superb location, amazing facilities and Sally and Mike are the most welcoming hosts. What a beautiful space to be.

It was a wonderful evening in beautifully kept rooms and welcomed by big smiles and hugs. Sally and Mike are very accommodating and have done all they can to make it a comfortable and convenient stay. They take huge pride in their guest house and are genuine in their service.

When the manager, Natalie, comes out to your car to great you and gives you a hug, then it is like coming home. Beautiful rooms, wonderful views and magnificent breakfasts all conveniently located in close proximity to shopping malls, mountains, botanical gardens, the sea, wine farms or almost anything else on your wish list. Hosts Mike and Sally certainly know... More

We loved our stay at Dongola House, superb hosts, brilliant setting, amazing room and comfort. We were met at the gate, welcomed with a drink, enjoyed the warm sitting room, and slept so well. Breakfast was beyond any expectation. Thank you Sally!

You know you've found somewhere special when the only fault you can find is a spelling mistake on the breakfast menu!!! (There is no "u" in chorizo!!!).
