If you don't have a lot of time to spend in St. Lucia, this definitely is the perfect place to stay. First of all, the host will share all his knowledge as a guide to make your stay worthwhile. He gave us a lot of information about the Isimangaliso wetland park, and when we decided to drive through the park by ourselves up to Cape Vidal, he was so generous as to give us some beach towels and snorkeling gear for the day, free of charge. Secondly, he doesn't only run the b&b and provide useful information, he also has his own tour guide company. We decided to go on a boat trip the next morning with one of his guides, and had a really good time. The trip was well organized and we had breakfast on the boat.
The rooms looked very nice and the location was good. Don't expect to be staying in a hotel though, this is a nice b&b with a homey vibe.

We spend 2 nights here in the hornbill house in St. Lucia.
The room was nice. Just what you need for a short visit. Everything was clean.

Lots of choises for breakfast in a very nice looking room.

There are 2 very cute/friendly dogs there as well. Butter and Donkey.

We got lots of information from the owner about st. lucia and booked a boot tour in the hotel. It was worth it. The guide was very friendly and told us much about the hippo's and birds there.

Higly recommended! We stayed at the Hornbill House for 2 nights in an amazing room. It had a double bed and a bunk bed for our daughter, a little balcony and a perfect bathroom. The owner of the guesthouse is also the owner of Shakabarker Tours. We booked the Eastern Shore Safari with them and we could hop inn our safari vehicle just outside the guest house. We had a wonderful sundown with the rhinos and an amazing spotlight night safari! We got to hold a chameleon, saw bushbabies, elephants and hippos! The second day, after a very big breakfast buffet, we visited the Crocodile Center and spent the afternoon on Main Beach. There are many restaurants in walking distance. The last morning we had breakfast with the hippos at the Shakabarge Coffee and Croissant Tour. One of the best experiences in South Africa!

Room Tip: Ask for the room upstairs, we enjoyed it a lot!

I stayed for 4 nights in the Hornbill house and it was a great experience. Many choices at breakfast, tidy and clean rooms with a nice ambiance. I loved the dogs who cruise around the house, they are very friendly and well educated :). The tours the staff organized and executed were really awesome. They are very knowledgeble and you can sense they have passion for what they are doing.

Stayed: October 2015

I stayed three nights at the Hornbill B&B in St Lucia from the 8th to the 11th November 2015. I enjoyed my stay & would go back - if/when I go to St Lucia again.
The staff were efficient & friendly. A big plus for me was that they have a bore hole so we always had water & they have an "inverter" so we always had electricity.From the B&B it is a pleasant walk to town & as it is where Shaka Barker operates from - for guests going on outings it is very convenient. The aircon in the bedroom was very welcome as it was pretty hot! It was a nice atmosphere there - the staff were pleasant without being stifling or over attentive.

Room Tip: My room was at the top of the stairs which gave more privacy .... & exercise!
