We booked at Kingston House based upon reviews at Trip Advisor, and it was simply delightful from arrival until departure!
The house has been in Harry Powell's family for a very long time, and as soon as we arrived, we felt as though we were staying in an old friend's home. It is exactly what you would expect for a home that has been in the same family for generations. There is little rhyme or reason to the layout of rooms, furniture has clearly been acquired over many years, and Harry is the perfect host. On one hand he has a completely laid-back approach with a "wear shoes if you want, or don't if you don't" attitude, but at the same time is incredibly thorough and efficient at showing his guests everything they need to make it a delightful stay. After showing us our room and the rest of the house, Harry offered us the "fifteen minute tour" of the city so that we would have a good starting point for our four days in Hamilton. Over the course of our stay we visited several of the places he recommended, and all were outstanding!
We stayed in the Jacaranda Room, which is right off the guest common area. We were initially a little concerned about noise, but that never was a problem, even with a full house. In fact, we left the door to our room open most of the time, which gave us even more a sense of being in a friend's home where we were free to do as we liked.
We were staying at Kingston House, while our extended family was docked at the Dockyard area on a cruise ship. Harry was incredibly helpful at recommending things that would appeal to all ages, making suggestions for transportation, rendezvous sites that were most convenient, etc., etc.
We wouldn't change and thing, and will definitely stay at Kingston House again whenever we return! I can't recommend this property highly enough
