Very comfortable and the owners make you feel very much at home. I was even invited to join them one Sunday afternoon for drinks on the patio with their friends which has never happened to me before in the other B&B's and I have stayed in around 50 over the last 20 years. Nice location too! Close to Gateway Theatre... More

Comfortable clean place to stay with friendly proprietors. Shower drain was stopped up, but that was the only negative. Lovely poolside breakfast was served, and food was as requested. Lady of the establishment was very friendly and helpful and explained the payment option well.

Thank you so much for your kind review Chris. So sorry we did not know about the drain but we've since checked it and all's working well now. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I hope you enjoyed your meander up in the Midlands and that you enjoyed your holiday in South Africa and hope one day you'll return... More

Bumblebee's was a wonderful surprise nestled away in St Lucia. Alison the owner was very accommodating and friendly, and the location was superb. Breakfasted by the pool was a delight every morning. We will definitely stay there again.

The service was very good. The room was a big well taken care of en suite, in a very quite place in between Umhlanga and Durban with a mall just around the corner. What I liked the most was the hospitality shown by Philip and Alison, the warm welcoming people. Our stay was peaceful.

We had the most perfect stay. Brilliant hosts, cozy and comfy rooms, a fabulous breakfast within a cute garden and next to the pool. Very reasonably priced and close to both, beach and city buzz. Excellent fish restaurant nearby. The only regret: We didn't stay long enough!
