Also a nice seating area downstairs. Street noise was more than we had expected looking at the map. Also note that it is an old house, so...

Both our rooms were extra large with high-quality amenities. I was particularly impressed with the quality of their bathroom amenities, towels etc. My wife would have loved the fact that they had a proper hair...

“The Kingslyn has about 6 rooms. We had room 6 (the largest suite). Apart from the occasional creaking from next room's floorboards, the place was quiet. Rooms have aircon and ceiling fan. The property is on a corner and pretty sheltered so cannot see it getting too warm. All rooms are well furnished with good beds and amenities. Cannot say any more than that, except to say with the Rand at about 17 to the £, it is exceptional value.”
