I have stayed in a lot of places around the world. The Dongola Guest House is wonderful. Mike and Sally own (and run) a beautiful, well-kept guest house that is located close to the Constantia wine area and a short drive to Cape Town City on the M3. The breakfast is delicious and the view of Constantia Berg mountain (one eats by the pool) is simply stunning. The Guest house is quiet and well furnished. Mike and Sally are incredibly helpful and the staff are efficient and courteous. Free and fast internet was very welcome. Plenty of good restaurants nearby in Constantia Mall and along Main Constantia Road. Every day we drove to Camps Bay Beach in the late afternoon, along the Atlantic Seaboard side. After a stay of 9 days this past January, I will be returning to Dongola in July, this time with my family for a month-long stay. The Guest House is very safe with activity, well manicured lawns, and attractive shrubbery. Horse riders go by in the afternoons along the green space and water stream that ends at Pagasvlei. Klein Constantia Vineyard is nearby, with Groot Constantia further down the road. You will have a marvellous time!
