The hotel is located very well in green point, very close to the park, 20 min. walk to the waterfront. The landlady helps patiently with any question, everything is well organized. And the breakfast is excellent. Our stay in the Kinglyn was perfect. Couldn't be better.

It’s an ideal location for golfers and people using this location as a basis to do trips around Cape Town. Living the town in the morning and come back in the evening helps to avoid traffic jam. It's a old Building, but with a nice breakfast area and a romantic garden.

For what we require on visiting Cape Town for the weekend of the Cycle Tour - Kingslyn presents exceptional value in a very convenient location. Staff continue to have "a can do attitude" which is excellent.

Wonderful stay - Airport transfer arranged for us - A cup of tea & room ready on arrival (even though we arrived at 10.30am) - Good location - about 5 mins taxi ride to The Waterfront, although we enjoyed the walk on the sea front via a lovely park. The room was tastefully decorated with a personal touch of fresh...

We stayed here for 4 nights to explore Cape Town. We had an ultra clean spacious room with heating and AC in a very secure, relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Super comfortable bed. Modern ultra-clean bathroom with shower/toilet. This is an old restored colonial home managed by a British lady and local staff. She (Rachel) was an excellent hostess who offered invaluable...

“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.”
