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...!!!
