“Best ever accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Kingfisher is absolute pefection. It is the very best place that I have stayed away from home. Henk and Cilliers are superb hosts. We will not stay anywhere else when visiting Port Elizabeth......Donovan / Claudette / Claire

Room Tip: All rooms are absolutely fine.

What a lovely B&B - Henk and Cilliers were wonderful hosts and so accommodating! Perfectly situated. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were outstanding - always with a little home baked extra!! Would definitely recommend it and will certainly stay there whenever visiting PE!

I have stayed at the Kingfisher from september 28th to October 1st 2012.
The personal service from Henk and Cilliers was outstanding. The breafast was excellent with freshly baked muffins, fresh fruits, home made cakes, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, eggs, etc.
The room was spacious, very clean and well organized.
Highly recommended

We booked into Kingfisher B&B on the recommendation of our children who have been there before. It was all they said it would be. Henk and Cilliers are the most wonderful hosts. The rooms are lovely and it was so nice having our own private patio. The little extras they provide, like gowns and slippers in the rooms, full DSTV, bar fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery and cutlery, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, etc. makes it a home away from home. The breakfast was excellent and the service amazing. We will definitely go back there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be very nice and they all have patios.

I have stayed here many times over the past few years, and the personal service from Henk and Cilliers is outstanding. If I have to leave early, they will pack a breakfast. Speaking of breakfasts, theirs is really good, usually with freshly baked muffins, and always with great coffee.
The rooms are all spacious, with a kitchenette. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Kingfisher at the beginning of Sept 2012. Occasionally you read reviews and arrive at your destination feeling disappointed but with the Kingfisher this is not the case! An extremely friendly B&B with everything you could want or need for a stay in PE. Our room was well decorated and cosy and I imagine the pool area would be gorgeous in the summer months (a very windy winters day when we were there!). The tasty breakfast was top - everything you could ever want as a foody.

The best thing about our stay was the fact that the owners 100% care about the guests, running this B&B is a labour of love and that comes across in the way they look after you during your stay. A totally deserving 5 out of 5!

Cleanliness, friendliness, excellent service. This is my B&B of choice in PE - in fact my favourite of all the B&Bs I use around the country! Ideally positioned in a quiet road close to the beach, the airport and other amenities. Breakfast is excellent and can be arranged to suit one's working day. Highly recommended.
