As any trip away is so special to us, it is such a real bonus to know that our B&B stay at The Kingfisher Country House has always been perfect, and we would not consider staying anywhere else. Sue and Phil always give us a genuine welcome. The rooms are so beautifully and carefully decorated, comfortable and homely. I have...

An exceptional stay. Sue, Phil and the birds provide the warmest welcome. A masterpiece of gardening has turned their house into a sanctuary for birds and other welcome animals. Swimming with drongos and eating with loeries provides a unique experience. Their knowledge of birdlife and culinary skills add to the atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The Kingfisher Country House is set at an excellent location. It provides comfortable and roomy lodging, bird watching from the veranda where a nice and tasteful breakfast is served. But above all Sue and Phil are lovely and worm hosts, who provide a homely feeling of relaxation . Their knowledge of the Garden Route provided me useful traveling information. I’m...

Our 4th visit to Kingfisher & each time the welcome from, & hospitality shown by Sue & Phil has exceeded the previous visit. Both are extremely knowledgeable not just about their own area but all of Southern Africa & are always keen to hear other travellers opinions too. Guest rooms are absolutely charming - comfortable beds & chairs, tea-making facilities....

We spent three nights in Kingfisher which was a real highlight of our holiday to South Africa this year. We loved the calm of the place which is immediately apparent as soon as you arrive. This is in part the surroundings, such as a sitting room filled with books, sofas on the veranda or watching the plethora of birds that...

This was our second stay at Kingfisher, and we were thrilled to find it unchanged, except there were even more wonderful and exotic birds to see. Sue welcomed us with open arms and made sure we knew which restaurants to go to, booking them for us, and recommended beaches and a canoe trip on the peaceful river nearby. The accommodation...

Sue & Phil are 2 of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet and they take such good care of their guests. The garden is beautiful, rooms very comfortable and breakfasts delicious and ample. If you are a birdwatcher, this place is unmissable. You have a huge variety of wonderful birds at your finger tips, including the stunning...

There are several good things to recommend this guest house. The owners are most welcoming and friendly and offer great advice and information about the local area. The accommodation is modern, comfortable and en-suite but the guesthouse has the romantic character of an old colonial bungalow. There are fans but no air-conditioning. Mosquitoes are around but were not a big...

We were very fortunate to have found Kingfisher for our stop on the way to Addo. Sue had told us that she doesn't normally take people for one night only but she did for us as we had booked another night on the way back. What a pleasure it was, nothing was too much trouble, even down to our restaurant...

We appreciate your lovely review, thank you. I enjoyed our conversations about the birds, it is always interesting talking to other birders particularly those from other countries. It is only during the peak season that we prefer not to accept one night reservations as it is the busiest time of the year. "Tabard" is a very good idea, however we...
