Kingslyn Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This charming and beautifully appointed home from home is very highly recommended. We found it to be close to the Waterfront and within walking distance of many of Cape Town's trendy restaurants, as well as to the beaches and promenades. Breakfasts were freshly prepared and tasty, delicious variety of fruits, preserves and juices too. Staff are friendly and helpful at all times. We look forward to our next stay.

My time at Kingslyn was fantastic. The staff are friendly and keen to help. The place is clean and airy, the communal area is welcoming and the rooms are luxurious and very worth the price!

A definite addition to my list of places to stay in Cape Town - would reccomend to anyone.

Room Tip: Each room is unique, but none are any better or worse!

We were 2 families with kids at Kingslyn for a week. The place is very welcoming and cosy. Located in a very peaceful quiet environment. Breakfast was good and the ladies would make us whatever we want. Located quite near to the city centre. Quality of sleep was excellent and the best thing for us was the lounge. Kids would go to bed and then us adults would get together in the lounge and have a nice chat time. Highly recommend the place. We were therein April 2013. Hats off to the Kingslyn Team.

The hotel is located in a nice housing area close to the sea. It is very calm and safe there. Large and well-designed rooms with a big bathroom ensure a comfortable stay. The breakfast is excellent and will be served in the wintergarden. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

My wife and I started our honeymoon in Cape Town and stayed here for 6 nights. It was an amazing start to our trip. The room was lovely and the staff was extremely helpful. Birget went so far as to contact and some of the places we were planning on visiting and plan some of our activities. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A charming old house converted into very big airy rooms with high ceilings. Clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast selection. Do however note that guest parking is only available out on the street and unfortunately some of the facilities in the room, TV, mini fridge and the free WiFi, did not work (though most were eventually fixed).
