We had dinner at the restaurant whilst staying over at another guest house. Our waiter was very attentive and at no stage did we feel either ignored or over crowded. Service was very quick. Food was good solid steakhouse fair.I would have liked for there to have been a bit more variety on the menu particularly representing local produce. Price... More

I travel to Kirkwood regularly on business and always look forward to it. Kronenhoff is somewhere to look forward to. The rooms are really good, from the big beds to the crisp linen. Service is pleasant and efficient. Swimming pool inviting and gym as well. Makes a nice home from home.

We have stayed in many guest houses of late....ranging from Cape Town through to the citrus district of Kirkwood. Although we live in Port Elizabeth and my husband had a golf day at the nearby golf club, it was just too far to drive from PE. What a beautiful hideaway, the rooms are simply stunning with all the attention to... More

Within the guest house, good ambience, and ample outdoor sitting available. Some of the staff however seemed startled, slow, others were efficient. Food was average, pricing was good, The baked Camembert was dissapointing , literally baked in the oven, perhaps even microwave, with garlic thrown over it for measure, not the crumbed variety , I expected, and in comparison to...

As a frequent traveller over the last 25 years to the Kirkwood area and having stayed here on many occasions it is always the place where i will return to...fantastic hospitality and excellent service..a home away from home...a place where both the owners and the staff go the extra mile as part of a normal days work...

We stayed for one night and enjoyed the spacious room and bathroom. For the room we will come back. The service of the staff and quality of the food was very average. Staff did not respond on remarks. This happened in the evening and at breakfast. We could not have a cappucino in the morning because "we do not serve... More

The Kronenhoff Guest House was a lovely place to stay. We arrived after touring the Eastern Cape and spending a day exploring Addo Elephant National Park. After several days on the road we appreciated the luxurious accommodations and the polite staff. We stayed in rooms 3 and 4 and could not have been happier. I would agree with some of... More

The owners take customer service seriously. Last year in July (2012) I ate here and it was a nightmare; however, the staff was better trained and very attentive and the food was much improved also. My experience this year was 100% better and I am completely satisfied if not thrilled with this place as of July (2013).

Very friendly and helpful staff. They had no accommodation for me, but was willing to recommend and book alternative accommodation. Not often that you see that! Had their tramezzini for lunch which was very good and fresh. Perfect setting and atmosphere. Definitely recommended.
