“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

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.

Henk and Ciliers are excellent hosts. And they do a breakfast which is even better. Service is superb. You even get a text on your arrival day welcoming you and to give you the last infos. Always friendly and helpful. You can feel that you are more than just a guest.

This was our second visit to Kingfisher and it will not be our last, this was our last stop on our 14 day visit with family from England to the Cape and we saved the best till last. We recieved an SMS from Henk and Cillers on route from Sedgfield welcoming us to PE and Kingfisher, we arrived at 2pm and were shown to our rooms, we were in the Maritime, same as our last visit, everything is there in the room for you, from carpet slippers to umberella, may be not advisable to be used as PE is known as the "Windy City". When I say the breakfast is excllent I mean excellent, the home baking was wonderfull, food cooked to order perfectly. The house is in easy walking distance of the beach and resturants, both Henk and Cillers were the perfect host.

We had a very nice stay. The location is very good within walking distance to the water and in a very quiet spot. Breakfasts was good and the hosts were very helpful - great recommendations for dinner! Room was spacious and well appointed.

We stayed at Kingfisher last week. It was also the last night of our trip through South Africa. It was a very good last place/night to stay for the last night. The hospitality was very good. Henk and Cillers are very friendly, and the great breakfast was wonderful. We hope we will be back some time at Kingfisher. We definitely recommend Kingfisher to anyone who's visiting PE.

My wife and I had the most wonderful stay experience at the Kingfisher Guesthouse in Port Elizabeth. Henk and Cillers were very friendly and made our stay as comfortable as possible. The location of the gusthouse was very central and also close to the beach and restaurants. We enjoyed a hearty full english breakfast the following morning and left the guesthouse on a high note. Henk and Cillers are tops and we will make use of them again in the near future! Henk and Cilliers, continue with your winning recipe!
