Thank you once again Marq and Penny, had a lovey stay. I really enjoy the room at the pool. See you soon, and thanks for assisting with looking after my car while I went down to Cape Town. I cant believe I have been staying at your guest house for more than 5 years, time flies.

Overall I was happy that the company had booked this place for me to stay. The last review on Trip Advisor was 2012 so I did not know what I would find! The owners are very friendly and gave me a warm welcome. The road ( now called Kenneth Kaunda road) is busy at peak times but was quiet overnight.Secure...

We had such a pleasant stay at Honeycomb. The room was lovely and very comfortable and the hospitality first class. Lovely sea views were just the cherry on top. Run by a lovely couple who treated us like family, we would recommend this B&B anyday.

A big THANK YOU to Penny and her sidekick Marq for a great two week stay in Durban... Our work there was stressful and coming "home" to the Honeycomb guest house made it all that much more bearable... Probably the coolest Guest House I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many around the world.. Even if I...

I stayed at Honeycomb Guest House just before Christmas. It's a great location in Durban, central to both the city and suburbs, with lovely views of the sea. The hospitality of both Penny and Marq was phenominal, they were very warm and welcoming, and I immediately felt at home. The room was spacious and the bed incredibly comfy, there's even...
