The staff are lovely and made us feel right at home. The location 10 minutes from the airport but in a quiet suburb. No vistas but the rooms: light, white and sparkling clean made up for this adequately. Beds very comfortable with cotton bedding. Kitchenette well equipped with french-press and fridge. Breakfasts excellent. We will look no further when returning...

Attention to detail is applied here! Henk and Cilliers could not have been more helpful and the room was spotlessly clean and tastefully appointed. The breakfast was outstanding and set us up for the day! Our only constructive comment is that we needed better reading lighting. We will return and highly recommend Kingfisher Guest House to others.

Clean, spacious and tasteful rooms in a beautiful garden. Extremely good value for money in a quiet residential area, close to the center but slightly off the busy beach rd. Cilliers and Henk are excellent hosts, thank you guys for a perfect start to our holiday :)

Kingfisher GuestHouse is the perfect place to stay in P.E. The rooms are sooo comfy and homey. The breakfast - served by the two friendly-funny hosts - is scrumptious. It's close to everything and yet very quiet when you need it. Maybe the pool's too small, maybe the air in the room could have been better, but none the less:...

Henk and Cilliers provide the best service you can expect of a guest house which you will find in every single detail, from the homemade soap to the beautifully served breakfast.

I always stay over at Kingfischer when I've got to go to Port Elizabeth. The service is excellant and the rooms comfortable and clean. Henk and Cilliers are professional and let you feel at home. All the rooms have a private patio and I like to have morning coffee outside in private. They go that extra mile, with room accessiories...

This is the geusthouse that gvie the best service. We were very impressed by the way we were treated. Even small things like putting on lights in the evening so that when you get back to your room it is not in darkness. Food everything is of a high class
