Even though our stay was only for 1 night, we had wished we could have stayed longer. The Penthouse Suite was perfect for my family of 4. The view was phenomenal and relaxing. The bath was well needed after running Comrades. The breakfast was great and extremely timeous. The selection was perfect. Thank you for a great stay.

We had a great stay over at Kingston Place after the Comrades, (even though they have a few steps to traverse on tired legs). Easy to find and centrally located. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. One cannot go wrong picking Kingston Place Guesthouse for a stay.

After a rather stressful drive from Jhb due to breakdown in peitermaritzburg, it was felt good to be greeted by a friendly face and more than adequate accommodation for a single tired traveler. Best breakfast ever. Thanx also to the friendly staff.

Outstanding service and quality. The owners have an attention to detail and care! My room had everything I could possibly need, hairdryers, bath shower and jacuzzi bath. The tea station had the biggest assortment of snacks and beverages I've ever seen in a guesthouse. The bed. linen and pillows are very good quality. The place is wonderfully peaceful. I will definitely go again!!
