I had a fantastic time here. The hotel is beautiful and so was my room; it was cozy, beautifully decorated, and warm. The staff was very accommodating and checked in with me often about my needs. The hot breakfast was delicious. The hotel is located a bit farther away than my other stay in Greenpoint so my walk was a... More

We just stayed at the Kingslyn for a week and had a wonderful time. The location is close to the waterfront and beach. The breakfast is also a huge high point! All of the rooms are spacious and well decorated. We loved it!

This is such a charming B+B style guesthouse! The hot breakfast is delicious and all of the rooms are nice and spacious. The decorative details put a nice feel to the entire place! Plus, it's close to the waterfront and the beach! My husband and I stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. A+ all around!

What makes a stay-over memorable is cleanliness, friendliness, cosiness, and a great breakfast to start the new day. This place scored top points on all these. Thanks so much, and a special thanks to the three ladies who worked to make sure it all happened.

Birgit , the manager arranged our activities after taking into consideration what we wanted to do, the weather, and what else was happening in Cape Town. She arranged surprises for my... More

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
