We booked into Dongola House for a night as we wanted to be reasonably close to The Greenhouse, where we had booked to eat. Although the owners were away for the night we were more than adequately welcomed and looked after by Derrick. We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of wine whilst the admin was attended to. Our room was spacious and well equipped,more importantly the bed was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was served on the verandah with panoramic views of the mountain. Grilled kippers, tomato and poached eggs were just what we felt like and the breakfast was cooked with care. Dongola is certainly on of the better B&B's we have stayed in, in Cape Town and would certainly recommend it.
