Great location - in the countryside, close to Bathhurst and although approx 40mins travel to Grahamstown, the road is tarred and relatively good. Beautiful farm environment - well maintained and pretty gardens with horses in the surrounding paddocks. Comfortable, cosy and very clean accommodation (kitchenette, bedroom and full bathroom). The décor was sophisticated and classy with touches of home -...

everything from book in to book out was wonderful. Peaceful, clean, friendly, helpful and even though they were hit by load shedding it was explained and planed for. Food was great and was close enough to take a quick trip to the beach. I highly recomend this venue and would return to the area just to stay here.

I can only second all the reviews already made on Kingston by others, on both the accommodation and restaurant listings. Wonderful peaceful little stud farm, we stayed in a self-catering cottage/flat with our young kids, and enjoyed every minute. Nothing was too much trouble for Carla and Fred, whose company we thoroughly enjoyed, and all our needs were seen to....

Very comfortable and spacious accommodation. Cooking facilities are included and shops in nearby Bathurst can provide basic supplies. Alternatively the restaurant is excellent – full of character and very good food at a reasonable price. Set in peaceful surroundings with beautiful horses.
