We visited for family function at Durban . Booked two rooms. The new owner only took over so there was lots of small issues that came up but I am sure as time goes this will be sorted. The only thing I don't understand how they can charge r100 extra for a breakfast? I thought that was ridiculous. But any... More

We stayed at Kingston House for three nights and were very comfortable in the garden room which was really spacious and private. The hosts were very sweet and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities. The breakfasts were fantastic, with a plate or bowl of fresh fruit to start each morning. Was delicious. Wifi was good and we enjoyed sitting... More

I had booked this B&B online and had to change the dates at the very last minute, which Kathy the host was agreeable to. (She technically did not have to agree to this and we very much appreciated her flexibility.). We arrived at Kingston and were welcomed by several vervet monkeys as Kathy came out to greet us. One monkey... More

First time I have stayed in a B&B for a long time and this was truly 1st class. The owners are very friendly plus very efficient. The breakfast was better than most 5 star hotels. The location is good and at all times I felt very safe.

The location was conveniently near the airport and also near the beach and Gateway. A win-win-win situation. We stayed as a family of four and our host was considerate in placing our rooms opposite to each other. We were so comfortable that it felt as if we were at home - the breakfast was delicious!! Thank you - we will... More

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
