“The best Guest House in South-Africa.”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

I have travelled the world extensively and have stayed in places all over South-Africa . From the friendly reception when you arrive till the moment you leave , it feels like you are staying at a 5 Star Establishment. Beautiful Clean and Comfortable Rooms, a tasty home-cooked breakfast which caters for all tastes. Walking distance from the beach in a very safe environment. Great value for money and the hosts, Cilliers and Henk have gone out of their way to make my family's stay at Kingfisher an unforgatable experience.

We stayed for two nights either side of a safari at Scotia. The rooms were great and the hosts wonderful, such a nice atmosphere pervades this tranquil spot. Not far from the boardwalk or evening walks down the beach. Breakfast was the best we had on our whole trip, I would reccomend Kingfisher to anyone planning to stay in the area.

We really liked the good atmosphere, perfectly clean rooms and the remarkable hospitality of Henk and Cilliers, Kigfisher's hosts. The breakfast table was so nicely decorated and the breakfast made by the hosts so tasty that we felt like staying at a 5 star hotel. The guest house is located within 10 minute drive from the airport and thus a perfect start of a trip on the garden route.

This was to be the last leg of our world trip visiting Singapore Australia New Zealand.and South Africa. We knew nothing of the guest house other than the postings on Tripadvisor and we had booked in for a month,,,some would say something of a gamble... but how that gamble paid off !! We arrived very late due to flight delays from Sydney and J'Burg and we were tired and weary to be met by Cilliers who greeted us like long lost friends and took us striaght to our room..Perfect...large cosy bed large bathroom with shower and bath, lounge area and kitchenette. Outside our own private area with table and chairs.Everything spotlessly clean and dressed ready for us. After quick showers we crashed out too tired to explore further. The following morning after a quiet and peaceful nights sleep,refreshed, we went to breakfast...wow...the dining room sat next to the sparkling pool amid mature gardens with the patio doors fully open tables set on white linen.There is a choice for breakfast ...cooked...continental..or both..!!! Help yourself to as much as you wish of the cold buffet and fresh tea and coffee whilst you wait for your cooked breakfast cooked to order and the breakfast is fantastic...as we stayed for some time we had chance to ring the changes and we can honestly say whatever combination of delights we threw at Henk and Cilliers the food was superb every time...one warning...if you are slimming or swimming be careful what you order the lads can be very generous with the portions..!!!....Henk's [ let me feed you ] omelette is a winner !!!!..and whatever you have you will not need lunch..!! After a post breakfast nap we ventured out. The Kingfisher is located very close to a splendid beach which is next to the old lighthouse and within easy driving or walking of all the other Port Elizabeth attractions,shops restuarants and bars but far enough away to be an oasis of peace and quite after a heavy day enjoying yourself. Henk and Cilliers have developed a beautifully quite secluded and restful haven at Kingfisher with service and attention to detail second to none of the 4 * hotels we had stayed in during the other parts of our trip.With secure parking, generous helpful hosts and staff you will not be disappointed in Kingfisher whether you stay 1 night or a month this place is a winner. Henk and Cilliers thank you for everything and we will be back that is a promise...not a threat...!!!

We stayed for only one night but had enough time to enjoy the lovely rooms, the cozy atmosphere and the remarkable hospitality of Henk and Cilliers, Kigfisher's hosts. The guest house is very near from all centric spots and also very close to the airport (from where we arrived). Our room was quite big, very clean and comfortable, apart from its lovely decoration. On our only morning there, we had an amazing and complete breakfast. Honestly, we found nothing to criticize at all. Overall, it was a great and peaceful stay and highly contributed to our unforgettable visit to Port Elizabeth and the Garden Route. Thank you!

We stayed at the Kingfisher on two separate occasions in January having stayed before in 2008. The rooms are lovely, breakfast delicious and hosts delightful. And it is extremely good value. The Kingfisher is about five minutes (at the most) from restaurants and shops in PE so perfectly placed. We would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending the place to others.
