I have stayed at Kingston House B&B on a few occassions previously and I keep on being impressed with the level of comfort, amenities available and exceptional service provided. The hospitality is above and beyond expectation. The breakfast is tasty and delicious.

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.

Right from the warm and friendly welcome by Pelo when we arrived to the hugs and photos of Howard, Pelo and my husband and myself, this was a home away from home. Howard looked after all details of our restaurant reservations finding us great places to eat and arranging taxis. The pool was actually warm enough to enjoy and we... More

It was indeed a pleasure to host you both. The pancakes that we all shared were fantastic, and we have since repeated the breakfast with other guests and the balance of your maple syrup. We will keep a small amount for your next visit! We look forward to your next visit. More

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.

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.
