well located and extremely well maintained property. Breakfast is very nice. Most importantly, Birgit and her staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms and toilet are very spacious. Our room was overlooking the street and therefore noisy with the windows open. However, with the windows shut it was fine. Wi fi works very well. Only negative was a very noisy... More

Nice place to stay at during holidays. The place is not far from the stadium, the water front and resturants. Best location for a very nice family holiday. The room was very clean and felt at home. I will call again.

Stayed 5 nights from 19th March, with Kingslyn as our base. Ideal location between High Level Road at the top (for easy access straight down into the centre and onto motorway network & airport), and at the bottom of Hill Road for Main Road and Beach Road for Waterfront and along the coast going away from town. Everywhere was accessible... More

A place where you can get about CT easily as it centrally located. Very warm staff, excellent breakfast. Spacious, comfortable and clean bedrooms. It is a beautiful, old house, but with this beauty, sometimes comes creaky floorboards... this however can be experienced as part the 'Gem' of the quaint old house.

Very friendly staff, esp. the female manager from Austria. The room was very spacious and equipped with everything you need for a short stay. Parking is next to the house and for free. Full and very good breakfast service.

Kingslyn receives many positive reviews on TA and Booking.com and we might have a pleasant stay there but five weeks after making reservation for a suite with lounge, we cancelled it because never before in my travel history that all my attempts to reach the hotel have been ignored. Because we had questions with regards to the hotel's location (proximity... More

Dear PORhibido, I would like to offer you my heartfelt apology. We have trained our team at Kingslyn to go above and beyond to ensure the highest standards of service are given not only to our current guests but our future guests, and in fact any person who phones, emails or visits our premises, and therefore was extremely upset to...

The staff members are all very friendly and helpful. The Guesthouse has a great location. We felt at "home" and save. the rooms are good and very clean, just not our "style". A very good place to stay.

We loved our stay at Kinsglyn. Great location, friendly staff, lovely rooms and delicious breakfasts. Although we know Cape Town well, we still got great recommendations on planning our outings. We'll be back!
