Colesburg is half way to everywhere, which means the hotels and guest houses do brisk business and offer poor value for money. This place has good modern rooms with a nice large bathroom, modern bath and large shower. However, for the price and the star rating I believe at the very least they should provide mosquito repellent in the rooms and wifi for the guests. The bed was also sloped in the middle, which made for an uncomfortable night. They did provide tea and coffee and even rusks, which I thought was a nice addition. They also have a good selection of TV channels.So not bad but definitely not the best.

Room Tip: All the rooms face a central courtyard and it can get noisy, so try and get a room away from the par...

What a great find on the long journey between Jo'burg & Cape Town, made the tedious drive worthwhile! Great attention to detail and they certainly know how to cater for the weary traveller. Dinner & breakfast were both very good & exceeded our expectations. The rooms are stylish and comfortable. So good we booked for the return journey!

Stopped at Honeylocust on our way up and down to the coast and were very glad to experience such a pleasant set of facilities. High-end finishes in immaculate rooms, refreshing splash pool and impressive lawns, an excellent restaurant - a welcome reprieve from traveling.

High quality accommodation a great stop on a long trip. Would want to stay for a while next time. Also very central for travelers to PE and East London. Must book well in advance over holiday period. They also have good quality food which can be order befor you arrive.

Room Tip: Family room is great

The perfect stopover between Jhb and CT. Stopped over there on our way back to Jhb, and was not let down. The premises were very well kept, rooms had luxurious finishing and the room was very spacious and homey. An ingenious shelf in the cupboard served as a coffee stand for a quick coffee and a rusk before hitting the road again.

Dinner at the restaurant was perfect!! We had the steak and the best lamb chops at very decent prices. This was all served in a cozy restaurant complete with a bar area and outside seating.

What a pleasant surprise to find this amazing place in the heart of the Karoo! Stayed at Honeylocust on 23 Dec 2013. The rooms were clean, beautifully appointed. The staff friendly and the food was better than any 5 star restaurant! Cant wait do a Cape Town trip again, just to stay over at Honeylocust! Cant fault this place!

We stopped over on our way from joburg to the cape. The rooms were awesome. Air conditioned with high ceilings. Very pleasant in the December heat. Large bathrooms. Good linen and bed. Dinner was excellent. Nothing better than a karoo lamb chop. Very pretty gardens. Well priced.
