Stayed over for two nights to break our trip down from JHB to the Eastern Cape. Was put up in unit 3 at the end of the property. Comfortable room with DSTV. Bathrooms clean and spacious. Very good breakfast each morning. Slight down side was staff moving about in the morning which you could hear behind the unit. Other than... More

Thank you so much for your review, we apologise for the noise behind the room which we will address with the staff who should not be in that area at that time. We are glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise. More

We left this lovely B&B after 3 nights and on our way to Drakensbergen I realized that I left all the passports and flight tickets in the safe. I called them from the car and they took care of it all without even bothering me on the rest of our trip. They called the travel agency to ask about our... More

We were supposed to stay here for 2 nights while we were in the Durban area. Unfortunately, our tour operator had made a huge mistake and confirmed us at HoneyPot even though the owners had clearly communicated with them that they were full. So we arrived totally unexpected for the owners. But they tried everything they could to help us.... More

This was the ideal place to start our trip round northern SA. We were given a really friendly welcome and the room was very comfortable, the site in general very pleasant, and with excellent breakfasts. It is a five minute walk into the lively 'village' centre for restaurants and bars. We would definitely stay there again.

We spent 2 nights at the Honeypot after our road trip. Heather and Bob spoilt us with a lovely breakfast and lots of helpful tips. The room and the outside area are just beautiful. Beach and restaurants are in walking distance. Perfect place to stay when in Durban.

Stayed here for two nights and would have loved to stay longer, Bob and Heather are lovely and can't do enough for you, the breakfast was fabulous with lots of choice and there's a nice little pool. It really felt like home from home. Really couldn't recommend this little gem highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to come back

This B&B is great. Rooms are spacious, but a bit cramped with desk,closets etc. Bathroom is not the newest, but the shower is spacious and a full range of showerproducts. Pool looks inviting. There is an honesty bar and nice bar area. Dogs are sweet. Every room has a private terrace to sit, magazines are provided and wifi is fast.... More

Thank you to Bob & partner and staff for making our stay comfortable, I would Honeypot again in the future. The room was nice, maybe a little crowded, we would've like the sheets to be changed daily but it was no biggy. Breakfast was served early which was nice as well.
