                                  Lovely cottage set in a very pretty garden, perfect location for exploring midlands meander and close to midmar dam. Really enjoyed the heaters in the bedrooms / living rooms on a cool drizzling November night. Recommended for a quick midlands visit.

                                  I was not sure what to expect as this is the first time I've booked a B&B when visiting Howick.  I was pleasantly surprised with the care and consideration given for ensuring a comfortable stay.  Under new ownership I can see word of mouth will be enough to make this a great choice for travellers!

                                  Thank you for providing a very nice stay for me at Sunbird. I would certainly recommend the place and like to visit again.

                                  I had a good stay at Sunbird. The breakfast was delicious. I will definately recommend it to others and make use of the Rooms for Africa website again.
