Stayed at Kingfishers after arriving in TG to find our booked appartment well below standard. Charlie and Clinton saved the day, and found room for the four of us. Had a fantastic time in the lovely Kingfishers. Great hosts and marvellous staff. Would recommend to anyone wanting a self catering holiday in beautiful surroundings. Well done and love to you...

Cliinton and Charlie are great hosts, and all the Gambian staff are superb. The whole place well maintained and spotless. Extra services including a small shop and a Dalasi delivery man... More
