Hello! We stayed at this place sometime in March, and being a younger couple, were quite impressed by the hospitality extended to us by the owner. A very pleasant Rhodesian man might I add. The breakfasts are tailor made and the penthouse suite boasts great views and a Victorian bath. Next time you're down, give this place a try! Plus,... More

Lovely accomodation, great setting with garden and pool, good size room with good bed and nice, clean bathroom. Secure parking and good Wifi. Very (!) friendly, helpful staff. We had a wonderful stay at Kingston House. Can highly recommend. We will go back ourselves. One minor negative: Backyard next to a road that gets quite busy during rush hour, so... More

A beautifully appointed guesthouse with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We were met at the airport by Cathy and her husband cooked a superb breakfast. The rooms are luxurious and spotlessly clean, and the gardens are beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer than one night. We'll certainly be back.

We only spent 2 nights in Kingston house but would have stayed longer as Cathy and John were so friendly, we really felt like home. The house is really nice with a big terrace where we had our aperitif with them and other guests, wonderfull view and big swimming pool. Our room was great with huge bed brand new, and... More

The hosts did everything possible to make the stay successful and enjoyable. I strongly recommend Kingston House. The internet connection was much better than in all the hotels I stayed at in South Africa, including a 5 star one in Cape Town.

Kingston is in the ideal situation if you are wanting to be in Umhlanga - away from the hussle and bussle. We were welcomed with a smile by John and the chats at the delicious full breakfast were a lovely start to the day. Our room was very comfortable and we couldn't fault it. All in all a lovely 2...

We spent 4 nights here just before Christmas and enjoyed the great hospitality offered by Cathy and John. We had the Garden Room which was very comfortable and private, we also made full use of their lovely pool area. A couple of evenings we walked into the village and just got a taxi back, which cost very little. They also... More

Nicely positioned in Umhlanga with all the restaurants one could desire a short drive away. Helpful hosts too, who kindly made a restaurant booking and helped with theatre reservations. Good breakfast with all the trimmings. However we felt that the room we occupied , no 7 , was not as private as we would have liked. Leading off the upstairs... More

Kingston House is an immaculately clean, homely and welcoming B&B, just a short drive to the beach and shops. John & Cathy treated me to their amazing South African hospitality and went out of their way to give me a great few days in Umhlanga. They are really flexible and generous hosts and will look after you really well. A... More
