Sunbirds attained 5* Grading in 2008 (we have now withdrawn from the TGCSA Scheme, due to excessive demands which would have resulted in undue re building requiring a major increase in room rates, we prefer to continue offering our 5* service at affordable prices).

In 2008 we won the KwaZulu Natal Tourism Service Excellence Award and were Runner Up in 2009. We have been rated Luxury by the Portfolio Collection since we opened, rated in the Top 5 of all Bed and Breakfasts reviewed by Trip Advisor in KwaZulu Natal and an Author's Pick for the 2010 Rough Guide to South Africa.

Rough Guide South Africa 2010:

"Classy, upmarket B&B offering immaculate rooms with modern decor, flat-screen TVs, DVD playes and even I-Pod docking stations. The attentive hosts provide and imaginative, cooked-to-order breakfast and there's a lovely pool."
