I have stayed at Kingfischer more than one time. This is my first choice when visiting PE. Cilliers and Henk welcomes you as a friend and will go out their way to help. I have stayed in more than one of the rooms and all of them is perfect. They are spacious, comfortably, private and everything on it's place. The breakfast are top's. Thanks guys. I will be seeing you again.

Visiting Cilliers and Henk at the Kingfisher guesthouse in PE has become like visiting family. They are always welcoming you as a friend whether you are a long time returning guest or new comer. Their rooms are superb and they are very well thought out. You basically have all the comforts of home and Cilliers and Henk are always willing to assist with special request to make your stay even more pleasant. If you are looking for a tranquil, comfortable and friendly place to overnight, I would really recommend the Kingfisher guesthouse to anyone who wants to visit PE and experience its friendly people first hand.

The title of this review says it all. I keep on going back to Kingfisher because?
I'll tell you why:
Really good value for money.
The rooms [have stayed in a number of them] are all spacious, comfortably furnished and private.
Facilities are CLEAN and many have both shower and bath - relaxation!
I love the idea that you almost never|ever see the staff which makes one forget that at times that this is a really busy Guesthouse that obviously needs to be kept clean and is.
The breakfast is delicious, probably too much.
Luckily situated within easy access to entertainment, shopping, eateries and the airport.
Owners are very helpful but thank God, never in your face. Thanks guys.
I'll be back on my next visit to SA.

Room Tip: All the rooms are set back from the street which affords one a peaceful and quite rest! Some rooms...

I have stayed twice in Kingfisher, both times were for business purposes and I reallly enjoyed it. I also had colleagues with me (both times) and they also enjoyed their stay. And we really experienced good service: Henk and Cilliers even helped when we had a flat tyre and had to get to the airport on time...I had 8 people to get to the airport....and Cilliers drove them in his own car.
Thanks, it is reallly a lovely stay and a very nice guest house!

I had stayed at the Kingfisher Guest House for only one night, after a flight of about 10 hours from Brazil. It was amazing the way I was received, Henk and Cilliers were very thoughtful and kind and the room was very clean with a lot of details that make me fell so comfortable. The breakfast was also very, very good. After a week me and a friend went back to PE at different times and needed another overnight, but I didn't book before. So I told to my friend to go to Kingerfish and try stay there, cause I would only go a fell hours later, but they were full. But what I was very impressed was that they were very concerned and helped us find another guesthouse.
So , I just have to thanks Henk and Cilliers for their help, attention and kindness, and I hope to be there in another moment again. Ana

I am a regular customer at Kingfisher Guesthouse. The hosts, Henk and Cilliers, are always friendly and professional. They go out of their way to ensure a relaxing, pleasant stay - all this in a great, quiet part of town and close to the sea. Fresh crisp linen, comfortable beds (and fluffy white towels) make it worth a try. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the breakfast is to die for!!! It is clear that the hosts pay a lot of attention to detail. Closeby you can pick from numerous restaurants with great views of the ocean. I can really recommend Kingfisher Guesthouse as the closest thing to home.

I have stayed at the Kingfisher guest house very regularly for the past 6 months and their is no comparison to other guest houses which I have stayed in before in the same area. The friendliness of the hosts is magnificent and makes you always feel at home. The service and breakfast is excellent and quality and variety is magnificent. Rooms are very tidy with all accessories you need. There is secure parking on site and DSTV in the rooms.

I will highly recommend KIngfisher Guesthouse to any friend, family or colleague.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with many windows in summer.
