We often use Kingfisher as an overnight stop when driving between Cape Town and East London. Yes we know it is not half way, but we do this because the hospitality is above excellent, the location is absolutely beautiful, and you actually feel like you are overnighting at a really good family or friend's house. The only regret we have when we stay for just a night is that we haven't stayed longer as it is the kind of establishment that you just don't want to leave. Sue and Phil have a little gem here, and it is Sue and Phil that make it the gem it is. This time around we had our 2 year old son with us and he loved it. The garden is pretty magical when you are 41, but when you are 2 it must be 100 times more magical with loads of areas to be explored, small hills to run up and roll down, wooden canoes to be discovered, real railway tracks to be walked along (don't worry, they are disused), Houdini (the cat) to play with and wild birds to be fed. He loved every minute, as did we. Yes we've been here a few times now, but driving past and staying elsewhere would just feel wrong. Do yourself a favour, stay 2 or 3 nights here, you will be very glad you did.
