Welcome to our 4 Star graded bed and breakfast in the tranquil town of Howick, the hub of the Midlands Waterfall Country, just one hour from Durban and four and a half hours from Johannesburg.

After a long day's journey or outing, rejuvenate, relax and experience the effects of a massage in our private Superior Spa Jacuzzi or sunbathing nearby on our secluded private lawn.

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!

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.
