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...

The room was nice, clean and quiet, with a lovely view on the garden. Breakfast was very good and the service warm, friendly and helpful. The great advantage of Hornbill House is...

Its a small guesthouse and i think only one other couple stayed at the same time and we only saw them once. The owner was great - recommending restaurants, getting up early to cook us breakfast as...

Our stay at Hornbill House was so memorable because of Kian Barker's excellent guiding skills. He also employs other guides to offer other trips as well. Hornbill House provided a comfortable and friendly base for our 3 night stay in St Lucia. Other reviews had highlighted Kian's expertise which was why we chose to stay here and we were not...

Stayed at Hornbill house for a couple of nights with my fiancée Sam, after the long road trip from Joburg it was nice to receive a warm welcome and a glass of wine from the owner. Our on suite room was clean and tastefully decorated with a small balcony overlooking their amazing garden. A small pool is available to guests...
