“Pleasant stopover”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Clean, friendly, efficient.Only criticism is the old magazines in the bedroom - three or four years old. Garden rather run down. Good recommendation for restaurant for dinner and efficiently booked. Quiet and relaxed

By all the good reviews we expected more,although we got what we paid for. the garden needs serious attention. The very old and broken furniture under the trees must be disposed of.
Breakfast O K but juice very synthetic tasting. Linen towels etc very nice and clean. dogs 1 large 2 small a problem as they were not confined to the main house area.We felt like intruders as there was no homely atmosphere. The owners should invest in a/c units. room was like a Sauna

Room Tip: We only got shown our room no choice although not full.

Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

Nikki is very friendly and helpful, she made dinner reservations for us and attended to our every need. However I expected more from, reading the website, than what it is. The garden is an old garden, with the charm of old fashioned plants, but needs better maintenance to be called beautiful. The interior and building are, for me, nothing to write home about. For R400 per person per night it was okay. A good enough stop over with clean towels and bed. Breakfast was fruit, yoghurt, cereal self-help & eggs etc made to order.

I was in awe when on arrival I saw the most beautiful garden. Nikki was so friendly and my room very comfortable and decorated in old world charm. I recommend Kingfisher Guest House and will definitely stay there again

Found the staff very friendly service was good and the rooms very clean.
The surrounding area was quite and a nice lot of birds to wake you in the
morning. Pleasant to sit out in the evening very peaceful after a long days
drive.
