5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

In particular I would recommend it to anyone who has business at the university as it is ideally located. The managers were extremely helpful and accommodating, even when I arrived late in the evening. And the premises was clean and cosy! I would highly recommend this BnB!!

I decided to stay in the Kingfisher Guesthouse based on reviews on Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I did. Henk & Celliers are wonderful hosts, they really ensure that they have taken care of every little detail. Our room was lovely and very spacious and breakfast is delicious, and with lots of choice.

The location is great, a very short walk to the beachfront and then its a pleasant walk to The Boardwalk where there are plenty of restaurants and shops.

Hopefully we will return so we can take advantage of the pool, even we Irish didnt manage to brave it in the Winter :)

I first stayed at Kingfisher in 2007 when I was in PE to participate in Ironman South Africa triathlon. I was so impressed that I continue to return. Henk and Cilliers are excellent hosts and take pride in their service, quality of food and they also maintain a very high standard in everything they do. The layout of the rooms are such, that you able to relax outside your room in complete privacy. Kinfisher Guest House is very close to the main beaches and the Boardwalk. It is definitely the place to stay in Port Elizabeth.

I Stayed some time ago - 2007, but had to seek this Guesthouse out now I am registered on Trip Advisor.
The place is simply superb. Nice quiet location in PE, with wonderful hosts.
The accomodation is spacious, clean and very modern.
A great breakfast was provided every day, and the chaps that run the place couldn't have done more to help in terms of car hire, trips out etc. In terms of getting to the waterfront and boardwalk area for the shops and restaurants, you could walk it though as we had hired a car it was a 5 minute drive.
A great little place and I would 100% stay again if I was in PE, I wouldn't even look at other options.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed superb.

The staff are lovely and made us feel right at home. The location 10 minutes from the airport but in a quiet suburb. No vistas but the rooms: light, white and sparkling clean made up for this adequately. Beds very comfortable with cotton bedding. Kitchenette well equipped with french-press and fridge. Breakfasts excellent. We will look no further when returning to PE.

Attention to detail is applied here! Henk and Cilliers could not have been more helpful and the room was spotlessly clean and tastefully appointed.
The breakfast was outstanding and set us up for the day!
Our only constructive comment is that we needed better reading lighting.
We will return and highly recommend Kingfisher Guest House to others.
