We had a very enjoyable stay at this guesthouse when we were visiting family in Cape Town. The room was well appointed and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. We will definitely book again when we are next in town!

The only negatives is that our room had dirty carpets and the rooms are not very sound proof. Our bathroom was a little on the small side. The shower door opened onto the toilet, so could not open fully. Otherwise a good located and run guest house.

We travelled down for the Argus and the Birgit made sure we fed and ready for the race, she even arranged a braai for us afterwards. The location is fantastic and close to the stadium and other touristy places. We have already booked for next years trip :)

Kingslyn is a beautiful little guesthouse with about 6 rooms in a great area of Cape Town. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and tastefully furnished and breakfast is absolutely wonderful. Expect to get lots of tips for your stay in and around Cape Town from the host.

A good and pleasant B&B with old world charm and nice rooms. Well located. Friendly manager and staff. 4 out of 5 for a mid priced B&B. Great price value proposition especially during the peak period in Cape Town.

Great location, staff, and beautiful room! Would definitely recommend Kingslyn for a nice stay in Cape Town. From Kingslyn, it was easy to explore the city of Cape Town, which is such a wonderful place.
