The B&B is close to the center. Possible to walk. Has a beautiful garden and parking facilities. Is a safe place. We had a big and nice room. With a small kitchen corner. Owners were very kind and hospitable.

We had one night at the B & B. Staff were very pleasant and the owners friendly and extremely helpful. We left a little parcel in our room and they quite happily arranged to send it on. The breakfast was excellent.

Very friendly family run B&B. Beds are king size and very comfortable. Breakfast a delight. Lovely little nook close to bar area with a fireplace. Cannot walk to beach as a little too far but literally 5 minutes by car.

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review. We are so pleased that you found HoneyPot to your liking, Umhlanga is no longer a village and soon becoming a bigger town you are quite right the walk is a bit too far and hopefully we shall have more parking as the town grows. Many thanks.

Almost unbelievable to find such a beautiful and relaxing place in a boomtown like Umhlanga. You need about 15 minutes by foot to the touristic center and another 10 minutes to the beach. Fantastic people - from the owners to the staff.We enjoyed it, despite we stayer there only for 1 night.

Located just off the main drag between Umhlanga Ridge and the town and beach, the venue is very convenient to either (but not walking distance). Welcomed at our car on arrival and personally shown to our room, we felt very welcome despite the constraints of the tight parking area. Our air conditioned room was spacious with a king bed and...

Had a great stay at the HoneyPot, unfortunately we could only stay for one night. Very friendly and helpful owners gave us great tips to explore the surroundings. We found the rooms to be very spacious with excellent beds (nice and large; which seems to be a rarity in South Africa, but very comfortable when you're tall). Keen eye on...

We had a very nice stay at honeypot, we only stayed for one night, and left early the next morning. The hosts were very helpful and the rooms were clean and tidy. They have two lovely dogs who are very friendly. Will definitely come back! Thanks to the hosts!
