“Felt like I was in heaven.”
Reviewed 17 October 2010

Hosts were very accommodating. Lovely room, food was great but the birding from the veranda was the best! We could have spent the whole day with the birds right on their property!

The Kingfisher Country House is a little way out of Wilderness and well worth the extra 4 minutes in the car. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the food is excellent and home made and the welcome is both warm and friendly.
We arrived at the Kingfisher after another place had made an error with our booking. As far as we were concerned the outcome was much better than could have been hoped for. Sue, the proprietor, made us welcome from the start and offered much help and advice on places to go and where to eat.
The house has lovely gardens and many wild birds will join you for breakfast.

The Kingfisher Country House is a place I need to return to every year at least once, preferably more. It is a place of healing, relaxing, socialising, meeting interesting people and a whole lot more.

I have never been disappointed and each time I discover something new and different. Phil and Sue make every visit special and welcome you like long lost friends. They have a vast knowledge of the area, and the birds and animals that make this B&B so special.

Sue is a walking, talking Garmin who doesn't get you lost.

Thank you again for such a special stay. I'll be back as soon as I can.

What a lovely comfortable place to stay. Phil and Sue are wonderfully carring people who take great care of you. They have decorated the rooms in a country style that is very pleasing. The breakfasts were yummy good food. Boy, can Sue ever cook!!!
If you are a birder, this is the place for you. They have bird feeders right next to where you eat breakfast outdoors. Got some great pictures up close! Their cat and dog will keep you company if you are missing yours at home.

The kingfisher has very friendly and welcoming owners, Sue and Phil, who are both wildlife lovers. The grounds host a wide variety of birdlife and at breakfast the birds come to the feeding station eating out your hands. The house is beautiful and built by Sue and Phil with unique comfy rooms.
This is a must stop for anyone travelling the garden route.

The setting is lovely with an added bonus of birds (including the beautiful Knysna Loerie)close to the deck outside the bedrooms. The owners are extremely warm and welcoming as well as being a mine of information about the area. There is a huge sitting room full of interesting books and knick knacks with a wood fire if it's cold. Breakfast is amazing, different everyday with home-made muffins to keep you going until evening. There are lots of restaurants close by and it is well situated for visiting the area.
