We had a comfortable night at Sunbird Guest House. The hosts were exceptional - both efficient and friendly. We had 2 double rooms, each with a bathroom in a separate wing of the house which provided privacy and a private entrance to the house. We were able to check in early and off load our luggage which was much appreciated.... More

We as a family really enjoyed our stay. It was a cosy and comfortable room and there was enough space for the whole family. It was safe and secure, although finding it was a little hard, some signage would of been great. Thank you for a great trip

The place is nice and the owners are very helpful. They adviced us a good restaurant and made sure it was opened a sunday evening. We also appreciated the breakfast with eggs from the garden's chicken. The only negative point is the bad thermic insulation. There is one of those windows made like a louvered shutter, impossible to close properly... More

It didn't matter what the problem was, Eva and Bruce were always there to help. If you wanted to go for an excursion, they gave you the best directions. If you felt like eating take-away food in the room, they provided plate, glass, etc., if you asked to park yr car for you to avoid a possible scratch, they entered... More

Lovely peaceful garden/ Breakfast nook is enjoyable and restful. My only negative is the parking of vehicles which although secure. can be an inconveniience to both guests and host to have to move vehicles either coming in or going out...

Nice, cheap accomodation in Howick. I stayed as needed a bed for a night simply to rest head after a long drive. The room is old fashioned and the bedding needs to be replaced as it's become rough, but other than that the owners have taken the time to make it a homely room. Breakfast was a much welcomed full...

Had a long term stay. Came from out of the country, and the managers made me feel at home. Guests can order a breakfast entree for the mornings in addition to the standard tea, coffee, toast, and cereal offered. The room was neat and clean. Wifi is available in rooms. Overall, would recommend for anyone visiting the Midlands Meander region.

I stayed over at Sunbird Guest House, Howick from 6 April to 9 April 2014. To start with, reception was not so friendly, the lady that welcomed me was not the friendliest of people. Another lady helped me one of the days and questioned at what time I would like breakfast, whereby I replied that I want it at 06:30,... More
