The efficiency of the hosts and the cleanliness of the rooms was a delight! Breakfast was very well prepared and comprehensive. Everything in the rooms worked perfectly. Parking was secure. Location is near restaurants and tourist advice was freely given and friendly. Highly recommended for business people or mature couples.

We stayed at the Kingfisher in Port Elisabeth for 3 nights, March 18 thru to our departure on March 21, 2012. We were given a warm welcome by our hosts Henk and Cillers and shown to our unit, the Knysna. All the units are grouped around the pool and the breakfast room overlooks the pool as well. A nice place... More

We only spent 2 nights at Kingfisher, and were out most of the day in between, but from the first ring of the doorbell we were made to feel welcome. The rooms and the common area are beautiful, especially the pool. The owners go out of their way to meet your needs. Breakfast was very complete, with every choice available.... More

Words cannot express the whole experience. From the welcome, total hospitality, location, accommodation. EVERYTHING was just so perfect. Heaven. Their business & their guests obviously mean the world to them. While ever we're in SA visiting PE we'll certainly never stay any where else. Arrived total strangers, left as friends.

We would usually stay with the family, but with others coming from the UK as well we decided on a B&B, and what an excellent B&B the the Kingfisher is.

While booking a room, I had a few questions. My emails were always answered immediately with lots of detail and many options. I was so impressed with the level of service!

My partner and I have been staying at the Kingfisher Guest House in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, regularly since about 2005, and without a doubt it is the best B&B in PE. The rooms are very well thought out, very comfortable and have everything we need for an overnight stay before or after very tough monitoring project trips. The welcome... More
