We stayed for three nights and found Hornbill House to be very comfortable and excellent value for money. The B&B is a short distance away from the main street, so it's very quiet, but still within walking distance. We also booked a tour of through the affiliated tour company (ShakaBarker) that was very good.

Having arrived slightly late, we were welcomed by (as it turned out later) by a tour guide who was less than knowledgeable. Gladly, we got a much better impression of this Bed & Breakfast in the course of the next two days. One is accommodated in the host's house which might be off-putting for some. However, as the only significant... More

The Hornbill House is a very nice place to stay in St Lucia. The owner of the house is very much willing to help you with any kind of advise you need for your stay at St Lucia. The rooms are nice and well decorated. The house also offers internet (cable).

No credit cards. Hadn't expected to have cats, dogs and chickens wandering the house (I am very allergic to cats) so was glad I had a door to the outside to air out room (although it was cold & pouring rain most of the night and a bushbaby cried all night long). Rooms are nice but hard to drag the... More

We stayed 5 days in Hornbill House, and the least we can say is that we had a great time, in this comfortable, affordable and well situated B&B. The room was nice, clean and quiet, with a lovely view on the garden. Breakfast was very good and the service warm, friendly and helpful. The great advantage of Hornbill House is... More

A warm welcome awaits you at Hornbill House. We had a nice room with a balcony over the front garden and an en suite. The owners and their menagerie are all very friendly (unless you sit on the chicken’s favourite chair!) and made us feel very much at home. Rather than a small selection of tea and coffee in your...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was lovely. We came here straight from the Hilton in Durban and were very impressed. Its a small guesthouse and i think only one other couple stayed at the same time and we only saw them once. The owner was great - recommending restaurants, getting up early to cook us breakfast as...

Our stay at Hornbill House was so memorable because of Kian Barker's excellent guiding skills. He also employs other guides to offer other trips as well. Hornbill House provided a comfortable and friendly base for our 3 night stay in St Lucia. Other reviews had highlighted Kian's expertise which was why we chose to stay here and we were not... More

Stayed at Hornbill house for a couple of nights with my fiancée Sam, after the long road trip from Joburg it was nice to receive a warm welcome and a glass of wine from the owner. Our on suite room was clean and tastefully decorated with a small balcony overlooking their amazing garden. A small pool is available to guests... More
