Me and my friend saw pictures of The Heron on RoomsForAfricas website and decided to book here for us and our partners. Being Freestaters, we did not know what to expect, and we were pleasantly surprised. Welcomed with warmth and we received phenomenal treatment throughout. To our astonishment we even received breakfast as part of the package. We really want to thank The Heron for the service we received. Have already told our family and friends about you guys. Keep up the good work guys, your kindness resonates throughout. We will surely be back.Thank you very much

We had a really awesome and great stay. I really liked the room I stay in, it was so neat and tidy. The guesthouse is situated in a nice and quiet area. The service was also really excellent, the staff was so great. And also breakfast was so delicious, very good. I would definitely go back and I would recommend it to others.

We had a very lovely stay, my wife and I really enjoyed our time there. We liked the cleanliness and neatness of our room and the whole guesthouse. We really liked the bedding also so crisp and clean. The guesthouse was also very conveniently located for our needs. The staff were great especially the owner Una she was lovely, so very courteous and friendly. Thanks for a great stay and we will definitely be back!

It was my first time making any booking to any place (guest house, hotel or lodge), I dont think I will ever book any place beside The Heron Guesthouse. The hospitality was amazing; we received a warm welcome from Joy and her helpers. The place is amazing, it is simple but elegant, and it feels like home. My boyfriend did not even want us to leave on the day we were checking out saying we must add another night. We will definitely go back to The Heron Guesthouse before this year end and it will be more than twice.Joy, you are dong lovely work please keep it up. Please stay waiting for my colle...
