“Great stopover”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Colesberg is on the route from Centurion to George, and was a great place to break our journey. We found Honeylocust online whilst visiting my family in Centurion, and am really glad we did. The rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated, and the facility and the grounds are perfectly maintained. Security is high, with locked gates, and the innkeepers are very friendly and helpful.
Loved our stay, and will definitely stop there on our next trip in South Africa

really nice and quite. very clean a bit too clinical, needs to add a bit of decorum. though this is my personal view. otherwise probably the best guesthouses in Goldenberg. Have already book the next check-in

Stopovers in Colesberg are a necessary evil, and we were really just hoping for decent, clean accommodation. But this guesthouse really exceeded our expectations with a stylish, fresh room, the most beautiful bathroom ever and a delicious dinner and breakfast. Considering Colesberg was experiencing a power failure during part of our stay, we were amazed at the fabulous service and hot meals despite the lack of electricity. Nadia really pulled off a miracle, and this turned out to be a very refreshing and pleasant part of our journey!

All true about the nice rooms, very good beds and great location for a stay-over between the Cape and Johannesburg, but the staff we met had a very bad attitude towards their guests. Simply rude and unpleasant and the food was very indifferent with tough meat, cold vegetables and very little choice. What a real pity, not a place we will go back to.

Honeylocust is the only place to stay in colesberg.

Worth every cent. Accommodation is top shelf, and the service is second to none.

We started our honeymoon with a stop over here. It was so great we booked for the way back.

The restaurant is fantastic as well. Both our breakfast and dinner were excellent.

Thank you honeylocust team for a comfortable stay!

Room Tip: Book for both dinner and breakfast, and all rooms are on a par, so you cannot go wrong.

Colesberg - not too easy on the eye (loads of roadworks / construction going on). In a town that clearly is in transition - Honeylocust is a rock solid hit. Super-clean, spacious and wonderfully attractive, this Karoo gem is the perfect mid-point on the N1 JHB CT route. Great bathrooms, a pool, bar and restaurant set in a tranquil, tree-framed property makes Honeylocust a must-stay. Throw in efficient staff and a competent kitchen and you've got your money's worth.

Room Tip: All good. The staff make sure everyone has privacy.
