Honeysuckle provides very neat, well managed accommodation in the heart of Clarens and the owners, Mercia and Johan will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The outstanding breakfast is Mercia’s special treatment to their guests and is not the normal standard offering.

This is not an holiday accommodation at all!!!!! This place is definitely your home away from home. You are welcomed with open arms and warm hearts. From the moment you step in, there is not just the normal coffee, tea, sugar, etc – here you get homemade cookies, rusks, biscotti, fresh juice in the summer and sherry for the colder days and nights. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay as homey as possible. We arrived as guests, only stayed for one night but we definitely left as family!!! I dont even speak about the price one have to pay to stay here because, not only do you get what you paid for but alot more, which you wont get even when you at your own home. May God bless this precious jewel with their owners in abundance.

Mercia – 21.02.2022
Proud to be the owner of this Guesthouse where I serve my Guests with pride and love.
