Our three night stay at Kingfisher Country House was absolute bliss. We arrived in the evening to find a lovely heated room which really warmed us up from the chill of the winter night. Sue and Phil's gracious hospitality and comfortable B&B makes a pleasant stay. The room we occupied was well positioned to receive lots of natural sunlight, it was spacious, comfortable and had a lovely view of the gardens. Staying at Kingfisher you are fortunate enough to eat breakfast whilst watching the birds have their own breakfast right next to you, especially the beautiful Knysna Loerie. Breakfast itself is magnificent and the freshly baked muffins made it that extra bit sumptuous for us. Sue is extremely knowledgeable about the Garden Route. We were captivated by the many activities and walk/hikes available in the area. After hearing our preferences and interests she gave us a myriad of options to consider for our Garden Route trip. We found Wilderness to be a good base point for exploring the Garden Route. Would definitely stay at Kingfisher Country House again. Comfort, sumptuous breakfasts, peaceful surroundings and delightful owners make Kingfisher Country House a definite return stay should we ever be traveling through there in future.

Kingfisher Country House offered space to both contemplatively relax in comfort, and to be gently captivated by nature's nearness. Our hosts, Sue and Phil, exhibited kindness beyond measure, tuning into our need to take it easy. They helped us find just the right sight-seeing for our familyl. We will always remember our time at Kingfisher with a smile.

The house and garden offers a perfect retreat and a lovely place to unwind. Sue and Phil are so welcoming, the bedrooms comfortable, the breakfasts great. The bird life a delight. Our hosts have books and maps and advice places to visit. A perfect haven to return to.

The location was perfect in beautiful environment, at walking distance to a great trail through the wilderness leading to a waterfall, close to the village for a nice dinner
The house and the rooms was wonderful, a bit Laura Ashley style.
The breakfast was eeexxxccceeelllleeeenttt, everything you can imagine was there, including home made quiche cake and Muffins (really terrific!!). Sue feeds the birds every morning from the terrace, the most exotic birds can be seen from 1 meter distance, they even eat cheese out of your hand!

We have really never experienced greater hospitality then Sue and her husband (my own mother could not have done it better;o). She could even advise us for all the rest of our trip throughout South Africa (and they were all stunning good advise!!).
Sue's bed and breakfast was also very affordable, especially compared to the other places that we visited we got full value for money!

Room Tip: the last front room is beautful incl lovely view

The Kingfisher Country House is certainly an “Out of Africa” experience, situated on the edge of the Wilderness national Park which is rich in bird life and fauna.

I was delighted to have chosen the KINGFISHER COUNTRY HOUSE to spend 7 days with an American Doctor writing a Medical book. We needed to have a peaceful and tranquil spot to complete the book, and the Kingfisher certainly offered us a paradise in the Wilderness.

The Hosts, Phil and Sue Millard, do an excellent job of making their guests feel very welcome, in fact we were totally pampered.

This beautiful home is nestled amongst a delightful garden that is filled with birds. A hearty and substantial breakfast is served on the charming terrace, and each morning the breakfasts are never quite the same. Sue bakes the most delicious muffins, and each morning there was a different flavor to temp us.

The Kingfisher Country house is a bird watchers paradise….The large variety of birds enjoy sitting in the trees beside the terrace, and enjoyed feeding from our hands. So very wonderful to watch these birds.

The room was outstandingly good and spacious and full of character – with a hospitality tray and delicious biscuits in a jar….we absolutely loved it. There were lovely areas for relaxation in the grounds including a pool.

Sue has wealth of useful knowledge about the area and knows all the best hiking trails, walks and restaurants the area has to offer.

The home has a wonderful common lounge where all guests gathered around the huge fireplace to keep warm and have a laugh…. We even all watched the Royal Wedding in this delightful lounge.... it was pure magic !

and…. last but not least…. The wonderful animals (a dog and cat) make the Kingfisher Country House, a warm “very much at home” stay !

Phil and Sue are certainly outstanding hosts, and I plan to visit again in December…. CAN’T WAIT !!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
