A gem of a place! Superb decor. Large comfortable bedrooms with firm extra length beds. Conveniently located in Borrowdale. Elision's food is out of this world. Steph and Nikita's hospitality is tops! Well done Kingsmead! I'll definitely be back.

The staff and facilities (inc security and food) at the guesthouse far exceeded my expectations. The guesthouse managers were great in making arrangements and dealing with any issues and a pleasure to talk with, and the room was well furnished and very comfortable.

This was my first trip to Africa, and I had no idea what to expect.Everything about Kingsmead was superior. The room was spacious and comfortable. The meals were excellent (and they even prepared box lunches to take to work). The hospitality of the hostesses and the owners were more than could be expected. The chef and the room maids performed...

I used Kingsmead Lodge for a very short business trip and stayed there one night only. Jennifer and Stephanie had provided helpful support prior to my trip and that continued during my stay. Jennifer's Mum was also a great help at check-out. This purpose built, 11 room guest house is simply lovely. Chef's breakfast was excellent and he is pretty...

The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. Most of all, the owner and staff want to be sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. They're always ready to help out with great local advice. All the meals were delicious! Be sure to ask about the banana crepes if they don't appear on the menu early in your stay.

I stayed here for 3 nights and was amazed by the attention to detail in the decorating - beautiful rugs, pictures, dried flowers. My room (5) was large, high quality bedding, furniture, a wonderful rain shower plus claw-foot tub! There were plenty of areas outside and inside to sit and chat. The food was also high standard, with a chef...

Excellent staff, excellent service. The dinner is great and yet reasonable in price, but you have to order during the day. The hotel sits in a quiet and peaceful area, very nice. I would highly recommend it.
