We’re had the privileged of serving many guests over the years. Below are some of the many testimonials highlighting their wonderful experiences with us.

I can truthfully confess that we had an unique stay at Honeylocust!

It is an ideal halfway stop from Pretoria to the Cape south coast . The establishment is brand new and furnished with an disguisable taste for the finer things in life and a lot of thought has been put into the design for sheer comfort.

It is set well back from the busy N1 and the main road into Colesburg to give you the tranquillity and peace that one deserves after a day’s long drive. We were so impressed that we immediately made a booking for our trip back to stay over again at this special little haven in the Karoo!

Mr Farrell

The room, bathroom, privacy and the surroundings are absolutely fantastic!

The decor of the rooms and the fact that no cost were spared are evident. The rooms are luxurious and spacious, not even to mention the showers. We felt welcome and the surroundings are quiet and tranquil. I will recommend (and already have) Honeylocust to everybody. 5 Star in my book!”

The quality and cleanliness of the guesthouse far exceeded our expectations

We stayed at the Honeylocust on our way to Cape Town and back to Johannesburg. We stayed in one of the top 3 branded hotels in Cape Town, but the quality and cleanliness of the guesthouse far exceeded our expectations and made the hotel stay somewhat of a disappointment.

Mrs Hollenbach

I was most impressed with the warm welcome

I was most impressed with the warm welcome; and very comfortable bed and good shower, which I was looking forward to after a long drive. I will be recommending Honeylocust to all my friends. It’s the perfect half way stop between CT and JHB.

Mr Viglietti

The Honeylocust is a true gem in Colesberg

The Honeylocust is a true gem in Colesberg and fully deserves its 4 star rating. The facilities are of the highest standard, neat and luxurious. A great place to interrupt a journey. Will most definitely use this as a stop over again.

Mr Tandt

Will not hesitate to re-visit

The room and establishment are even better than in the pictures on the website. What an awesome place, spotless, homely and tastefully decorated. Many thanks for your hospitality, we were able to relax half way between Durban and Cape Town and will not hesitate to re-visit again.

Mrs Dewar

The nicest guest house I have stayed in

I have not always been a big fan of Guest Houses as I felt they were not private or even at an acceptable standard but

Honeylocust guest house has changed my mind in that regard. It is the nicest guest house I have stayed in and the finishes used are top quality.

.It is a classy, well laid out, presentable guesthouse with great shower facilities. You can be absolutely proud of the professional setup you have. I would highly recommend your guesthouse to anyone and I will definitely be coming back.

Honeylocust was exactly what we needed

Every year we drive down to our home in the Cape and invariable stay over in Colesberg either on the way down or on the way back.

We have tried many places to stay and this year hit the jackpot! Honeylocust was exactly what we needed …a real oasis after the long drive through the Karoo.

The room was superb! Comfortable, tastefully decorated, wonderful pristine white linen, exceptionally comfortable bed and spotlessly clean bathroom with a shower so huge and inviting! I highly recommend Honeylocust as an ideal place to stay in Colesberg. Thank You.

Overall, a 5-star experience!

Honeylocust is probably one of the best guesthouses I have ever stayed in! I was really pleasantly surprised when we arrived after a long roadtrip to Colesburg. The establishment is looks brand new and no expense has been spared on the decor and fittings in the room. I will definitely be staying there again. Overall, a 5 star experience!

Miss Wright

Had an excellent night

We have travelled quite extensively internationally and were very impressed with the Honeylocust which measured up to the best guesthouses we have stayed in. We received a warm welcome from the owners and had an excellent night. Our “Luxury” room was spacious and very comfortable. We will definitely return.

Brett & Busi (United Kingdom)

Excellent value for money

This is definitely Colesberg’s newest and best place to stay! We were fortunate to stay 2 nights, both on our way down and on our way back to the Cape. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with attention to small but important details. En suite bathrooms are large and also very tastefully done.

Excellent value for money and we are sure that Honeylocust will be the “place of choice” when stopping over in Colesberg. We wish them all the very best going forward!

The room was clean and neat with modern interior decoration. The linen and equipment are of outstanding quality. Appropriately priced.

A must stay over

A Guest House of choice to us is one where there is a fine balance between professionalism, privacy, hospitality, luxury with modern furnishings but yet simplicity and homely (cosy & comfortable). All these can be found at the recently established Honeylocust in Colesberg. A must stay over destiny travelling between the Cape and Gauteng.
