I took my family to Durban for the first time. We actually planned this trip at the very last minute. I found the guesthouse was available and immediately booked a room without reading any review. We drove from Drakensberg to Durban. I received a phone call from the guesthouse telling us that they were expecting us. Once we arrived, we...

Only stayed here one night, en route from airport to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi park, but had everything you needed. Comfy well equipped rooms & great breakfast too. Safe, short walk into town for dinner. Good advice on where to buy supplies for park.

On business in Durban? Looking for a place where you can relax away from the bustle of the inner city, yet close enough to The Gateway Shopping Center ( biggest in the Southern Hemisphere) and to the myriad of restaurants in Umhlanga Village 5 minutes away. Comfortable rooms with huge king size beds. Amazing breakfasts every morning - cooked to...

We loved our staying at HoneyPot B&B, unfortunately only one night. The location of the B&B couldn't be better: safe, in a living area and only some minutes walk from beach and downtown. The people were friendly, the rooms clean and completely stuffed. The breakfast was excellent. The space in the rooms is just very limited.

Whenever it's possible and we visit Durban we stay at Honeypot which has become our "home" in Durban. Bob and Heather have become friends as well as our guesthouse hosts and we have no hesitation in recommending Honeypot to friends looking for accommodation in Durban and have done often over the years. In fact our next trip to Honeypot is...
