Stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved it. The room was spacious and the hosts very welcoming! Even though breakfast was only served from 7-9am, I was able to grab something at 6:30 when I had to head to the harbour and they prepared a breakfast package for me for the next day when I had to leave in...

We had a lovely stay at Kingfisher Guesthouse. Henk and Celliers were the perfect hosts - available but not overbearing. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the gardens were lovely. It was too cold for a dip, but the pool was inviting. The breakfast was simple and delicious - especially the eggs!

Arrived on a business trip with 2 colleagues all staying together. Prior contact with the owners by SMS was really good and once introduced they never once forgot our first names. The rooms are outstanding with all amenities. The breakfast is divine and no request too much. A feature is the good coffee. The location is very central and setting... More

Port Elizabeth has a wide range of accommodation establishments and I have had to inspect a number of them. However, I cannot but confirm the other reviews that have been published about Kingfisher. The hosts are warm and delightful to engage in conversation. The guest house is located a block or two off the main street which puts it in... More

Both hosts were very great in meeting our last minute request. It was a lovely place to stay. We enjoyed the homemade goodies every morning, it was really delicious. We even asked for the recipe for one of their dishes. The atmosphere was really quaint.

This is a guesthouse I return to again and again, and every time I find that everything has improved. This most recent trip revealed that the whole guesthouse was spruced up, newly painted and looking fresh and appealing. Inside the rooms, the beds are inviting and decked out in the finest of linen and the fluffiest of pillows and duvet;... More

Having spent yet another weekend at Kingfisher Guesthouse, we were once again impressed by the owners’ hands-on management style, the sensible range of amenities and accessories in the guestrooms, and the constant actions to further improve guests’ comfort. The newly added air conditioners in all the guestrooms is a priceless luxury. We are looking forward to our next visit.
