Although our stay was short, we really enjoyed our stay. Staff was always friendly and Birgit went out of her way to make us comfortable. Room was clean and welcoming and the bed super comfy. Thank you very much for your trouble.

A well-located, comfortable B&B in Greenpoint, spacious bedroom and bathroom with all mod-cons, although I missed not having heating on the cold winter's night; generous breakfast and attentive hosts.

A great place to stay when travelling for business. They kept it open when i was late to check in, hosted a business breakfast with an associate one morning. Even when they don't have space for me they find me another great venue.

We had a very pleasant short stay in Easter at Kingslyn. The service was good and the staff was always pleasant and helpful. The room was better than we expected and location in Greenpoint was perfect.

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 :)
