We have just spent five nights at the Kingfisher Guest House and it was absolutely wonderful. We were able to check in in the morning as we had arrived on an early flight. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. We loved the variety of the breakfast on offer. Cilliers and Henk were gracious hosts and nothing was too much... More

Before my parents even arrived the owners were ready to go the extra mile and allowed me to leave a gift in my parents room. From the extensive and well presented breakfasts, to printing out directions, to supplying ideas of things to do around town, to going the extra mile in every small way, I would highly recommend this clean,...

We have spent the Easter Weekend at Kingfisher Guesthouse, and have once again been impressed by the cleanliness, comfort, and hospitality. The room is equipped with all the amenities and accessories anyone could need. Breakfasts can only be described as an experience; generous portions, tastefully prepared by the owners themselves, and Cilliers’ pastries deserve a special mention. A word of... More

Cilliers and Henk - the two gentlemen who own and operate the Kingfisher Guest House - provide great accommodation at a very reasonable price. They never failed to respond to all our questions and provided a great recommendation for afternoon tea/coffee complete with a hand-drawn map of how to get there. They were also very entertaining. The guest house is... More

I have stayed at Kingfisher Guest House on numerous occasions during the last 9 years, and have witnessed how Cilliers and Henk have constantly improved the guesthouse, to create a comfortable environment for their guests. Their hands-on and very personal approach to both the management of the establishment, and guest care, result in a traditional, old-school accommodation establishment, implementing tried,... More

Henk and Cillier run a wonderful guesthouse. The accommodation is fabulous with excellent bed, privacy and all the amenities one needs when travelling on business. They are caring hosts without being intrusive.The breakfasts prepared by Cillier are delicious with newspapers available. A delightful environment and the B&B is well situated with easy access to the city. Well worth a stay..

Once again, many thanks to the hosts Henk & Ciller at the Kingfisher Guest House. I have just returned to Durban from a weeks stay with them at their Guest House in PE. The rooms cater for your every need, they and their staff are just so attentive to every detail and need. Even though the rooms are absolutely perfect... More

Being on the road and sleeping in many different hotels and guest houses, little compares to the feeling of a home away from home. I will definitely be back. From the arranged late check-in to the fantastic English breakfast to the all around service with a smile, it's going to be difficult to top the service I received.
