I have stayed here many times over the past few years, and the personal service from Henk and Cilliers is outstanding. If I have to leave early, they will pack a breakfast. Speaking of breakfasts, theirs is really good, usually with freshly baked muffins, and always with great coffee. The rooms are all spacious, with a kitchenette. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Kingfisher at the beginning of Sept 2012. Occasionally you read reviews and arrive at your destination feeling disappointed but with the Kingfisher this is not the case! An extremely friendly B&B with everything you could want or need for a stay in PE. Our room was well decorated and cosy and I imagine the pool area...

Cleanliness, friendliness, excellent service. This is my B&B of choice in PE - in fact my favourite of all the B&Bs I use around the country! Ideally positioned in a quiet road close to the beach, the airport and other amenities. Breakfast is excellent and can be arranged to suit one's working day. Highly recommended.

Kingfisher was a real experience. Professional and highly organised. From the most amazing breakfast you'll ever find to perfect guest rooms, the stay was thoroughly enjoyable. The guest house is located close to everything and you are within walking distance from the beach.

Kingfisher was great! We felt like coming home because they where so concerned about us (two girls, travelling on our own) coming after dark. The room was very nice & quiet, the breakfast was excellent... too bad we where just there for the night. If I'll be back in PE one day, I definitely will visit Kingfisher again!

Best way to describe the stay at Kingfisher every time is " WOW". Everything you need or think you need, are already taken care of! From the white linen to the best guesthouse breakfast you can ever have! When out early, they provide a basket with a variety of snacks for breakfast. The rooms are in such beautiful maintained status...

I have stayed at Kingfischer more than one time. This is my first choice when visiting PE. Cilliers and Henk welcomes you as a friend and will go out their way to help.
