We were lucky that we chose Kingston house and this was the most positive surprise we had during our 2-week stay in South Africa. Want to thank the Owner family for their very warm welcome and hospitality for the whole time of... More

We recently stayed at Kingston House for two nights with our one year old daughter. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. They offered us a cot, which we already had, but we did borrow the cot mattress which was very useful. They made us dinner the first night which was... More

Howard was a wonderful host and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Wish I could have stayed longer to spend more time on the jigsaw puzzle. Definitely be visiting again.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Umhalanga/Durban this property is a peaceful place to relax after long day of site seeing. The owner is very helpful and in spite of the fact that we reached there at midnight he was personally available to help us settle in. The rooms are large spacious and also the decor was good. The...

I recently spent a week at Kingston House whilst working on a project in Durban. The owners really went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, cared for and at home. The staff are cheery and breakfast is delicious. I certainly will be back!

The owners went out of their way to make our stay memorable. As our flight was late in the afternoon, we just wanted to leave our luggage at the B&B. The owner let us use the room after check out, to shower before leaving for the airport. This made a huge difference to our last day.

Kingston is easy to find, well located and offers everything a tired traveler would need. I appreciated the Kingsized bed and warm welcome from the hosts. The bar area is a bonus and the breakfast was well prepared and sufficient. I will certainly stay there again.
