We have had the most amazing ten days at Kingsmead. From the most comfortable beds, beautiful bed linen, heated towel rails, scrumptious breakfasts, staff that make you feel so welcome and relaxed and nothing is too much for them! Thank you, thank you and thank you again for an unforgettable stay! We will miss you all!

Staying at Kinsgmead is a wonderful experience. I had a comfortable, airy, room with a garden view. Everything was spotlessly clean, with great attention to detail. The garden was pretty, the food good, but perhaps my favourite thing was the staff. They couldn't have been nicer and went out of their way to accommodate my needs. Highly recommended - I...

The accommodation was very comfortable, homely and quiet. Spotless guesthouse throughout. The staff went out of their way to look after us. We were given a very personalised service with the managers and chef going out of there way to look after us - can't fault it, highly recommended.

A gem of a place! Superb decor. Large comfortable bedrooms with firm extra length beds. Conveniently located in Borrowdale. Elision's food is out of this world. Steph and Nikita's hospitality is tops! Well done Kingsmead! I'll definitely be back.

The staff and facilities (inc security and food) at the guesthouse far exceeded my expectations. The guesthouse managers were great in making arrangements and dealing with any issues and a pleasure to talk with, and the room was well furnished and very comfortable.

This was my first trip to Africa, and I had no idea what to expect.Everything about Kingsmead was superior. The room was spacious and comfortable. The meals were excellent (and they even prepared box lunches to take to work). The hospitality of the hostesses and the owners were more than could be expected. The chef and the room maids performed...

I used Kingsmead Lodge for a very short business trip and stayed there one night only. Jennifer and Stephanie had provided helpful support prior to my trip and that continued during my stay. Jennifer's Mum was also a great help at check-out. This purpose built, 11 room guest house is simply lovely. Chef's breakfast was excellent and he is pretty...

The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. Most of all, the owner and staff want to be sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. They're always ready to help out with great local advice. All the meals were delicious! Be sure to ask about the banana crepes if they don't appear on the menu early in your stay.
