I loved the dogs who cruise around the house, they are very friendly and well educated :). The tours the staff organized and executed were really awesome. They are very knowledgeble and you... More

I stayed three nights at the Hornbill B&B in St Lucia from the 8th to the 11th November 2015. I enjoyed my stay & would go back - if/when I go to St Lucia again. The staff were efficient & friendly. A big plus for me was that they have a bore hole so we always had water & they... More

We booked a room at the marlin lodge for 3 nights after doing research on tripadvisor and airbnb. After the payment and confirmation email from airbnb we received a message from the host (sonet) that her place was not available. She told us she would find us another place, but she could not tell us which place it was yet,... More

Small scale, intimate and beautiful setting. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly, as are the two dogs that walk around the house. The knowledgeable owner, Kian, runs a tour company and going on some of these tours is definitely recommended! Get on a boat and go see hippos and crocodiles (even bull sharks if you're lucky), take... More

We were welcomed and treated like old friends at the Hornbill House. The staff members are extremely friendly and accommodating. They arranged all our tours for us, and were happy to change them around to accommodate the weather and give us the best possible experience. They recommended restaurants and local sightseeing highlights, and cooked us eggs to order in the... More

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
