We spent 4 days there. On the next visit to Capetown we will stay at the Kingslyn Guest House again.The location is very good. You can walk in 10-15 minutes to the waterfront or to the city. The service is very good and the staff is friendly and helpful.

It has been written here before time and again, Rachel makes you really feel like home. No sign of a cold, impersonal hotel feeling, but genuine hospitality. Convenient parking next to the building, good Wi-Fi, excellent bed, roomy bath room, lovely front garden, what more could you wish for? Just, just maybe a fridge that is slightly less noisy!

This B&B is in a pretty house in Green Point. Rooms are generous and nicely appointed. Breakfast is very good and the buffet mostly well-stocked, a challenge given the amount of space available. 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...

This guest house really is top notch. A beautiful Victorian home decorated to a very high standard. Our room had the most comfortable and huge four poster bed and a stunning bathroom with a claw foot bath and large separate shower. The service we received from Rachel as the co owner was second to none. She was a fantastic host...

“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.”
