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...

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...

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...

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.

Clean, spacious and tasteful rooms in a beautiful garden. Extremely good value for money in a quiet residential area, close to the center but slightly off the busy beach rd. Cilliers and Henk are excellent hosts, thank you guys for a perfect start to our holiday :)

Kingfisher GuestHouse is the perfect place to stay in P.E. The rooms are sooo comfy and homey. The breakfast - served by the two friendly-funny hosts - is scrumptious. It's close to everything and yet very quiet when you need it. Maybe the pool's too small, maybe the air in the room could have been better, but none the less:...

Henk and Cilliers provide the best service you can expect of a guest house which you will find in every single detail, from the homemade soap to the beautifully served breakfast.
