When we arrived for a week long stay at Kingslyn we were greeted by the owner,Rachel. She was a breath of fresh air from England and made us feel completely at home .This was repeated by the staff as we met more of them as our week progressed. There was nothing to fault; the breakfast room and lounge were stunning as was the food and our room.It was always a pleasure when we got"home" to chat withRachel or the staff about our day and be given more information or guidance about anything to do with our stay in Cape Town . There is only one place to stay and this is it! We were sorry to leave but had the western cape to see! We thought we might return to Kingslyn after our tour but the beauty of the Cape overtook us and we ran out of time. We are sorry we missed a last conversation with Rachel.

Hello Paul and Fiona Thanks for taking the time to review your Cape town home! It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us at the beginning of your South Africa trip and you obviously enjoyed exploring the Western Cape so much that you didn't get time to come back to Cape Town1 As a small guesthouse we really enjoy having time to chat with our guests and it was always lots of fun chatting with you both and hearing about your adventures in Cape Town. I appreciate you recommending us and it was a shame we didn't get to catch up at the end of your trip but I very much hope that you will return to Kingslyn in the future. I am lucky to have a great team of staff so when I am not there you will always get looked after. I hope you are both keeping well during these terrible times with Covid-19 and I look forward to future conversations. Stay safe Regards Rachel :)

I loved the sun-room for breakfast and the host was great. I appreciated his assistance and recommendations. The bedroom and bathroom were good. I would have preferred a bit better natural lighting in the room, but the breakfast space made up for it.

Rachel and her crew welcomed us very warmly. The took our luggage upstairs and offered us their welcomes drink. We received a lot of information about things to see/do in town. The room is beautiful decorated, big, clean, big bed, quiet area. The bathroom looked out of a movie. We would really recommend this place. There's free parking around the corner, waterfront is 5-10min drive.

Thanks for taking the time to review Kingslyn. We always like to take time to provide some information on Cape Town, whatever it may be that you wish to do during your stay. I am very happy to hear that you liked your room so much and thank you for recommending us to others. Hopefully after the Covid-19 crisis settles down future guests will read your review and book to come and stay too. Stay safe, Regards Rachel

From the time we arrived till we left, Rachel, Christina and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful, cheerful and courteous. My sister lost her handbag at a restaurant, and Rachel could not have more helpful, from taking messages from the police, help with the taxi service, arranging a massage session, and endless post of tea. Christina was always happy to make us tea, (even after hours), laundry and opening the door to let us in when we forgot/lost our key with the bag. Thank you for making a difficult time (due to loss of handbag) bearable.

Thanks so much for your lovely review, it was great to have you and the rest of your family staying with us before you went to the wedding in Stellenbosch. We are always here for our guests and sometimes it can help to have someone local to assist you when things don't go quite to plan. I very much hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip and there were no more upsets and I look forward to welcoming you back in the future when the world can travel again! Stay safe Kind regards Rachel

Kingslyn is a beautiful boutique hotel. Our room was exceptionally clean and nicely decorated, the bathroom was lovely with a large shower. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice. The location in Green Point was perfect for us, a nice walk or short taxi ride to the V&A. Rachel is lovely, very friendly and helpful with advice about the local area and restaurants etc. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Thanks Debbie, it was only a pleasure to have you both staying with us as our guests, you both had such amazing positivity and enthusiasm for your stay in South Africa which was just great to be around. I always try and help with a little bit of advice on what to do in Cape Town whether it is your first trip or 25th! Fantastic that you enjoyed our location, we are a walk or short taxi from the Waterfront but I think that also suits a lot of our guests who are more the independent type travellers such as yourselves. I am lucky to have a great team of staff who keep the house running to a very high standard and appreciate the comments about the cleanliness and standard of your room. I very much hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip in the country and that the sky-diving went well! ( You are braver than me!) It would be great to have you back to stay at Kingslyn if you return to Cape Town in the future. Warmest Regards Rachel
