We have stayed here a couple of times and received excellent service from all of the staff. The modern, large air-conditioned bedroom with open plan bathroom and giant bath was very comfortable and quiet. The location is very close to Gardens Shopping Centre, an Engen convenience store and various restaurants (Dunkley Square within walking distance has Maria's Greek restaurant and Vandiar's Indian restaurant). Also nearby: the Company Gardens, Parliament, Tuynhuys, the South African Museum and Art Gallery, the Old Synagogue, the SA Jewish Museum and the Cape Town Holocaust Centre. There is a very attractive outdoor area with a small, sheltered swimming pool with seating under and around a large bougainvillea. Breakfast is taken in the diningroom which opens out onto the pool area. On offer are a large selection of cereals and fresh fruits followed by a cooked breakfast and coffee. There is an honesty bar with complimentary coffee and home-made biscuits, which is very convenient. Security at this small guesthouse/B&B is good. However, parking is on the small side street and unreserved. There is a car guard present at night. However, the last time we stayed there not one of the street lights was working. The receptionist told me that the security company would sort that out. I believe it is Dunkley House's responsibility to report such outages to the municipality and ensure the fault is repaired so that their guests can feel secure on returning 'home' late at night.
