Adama T wrote a review Today
My stay at the Heron was excellent. The hotel was v clean n fresh. The staff are excellent. I got a wow expert. I enjoyed using the gym. The food was excellent and I got to try the local cuisine. The GM Mr. David and my dear Mr. Wesley are the best! The hotel management needs to give them a bonus or a salary increase because they are doing a great job. All you need to do is "say" and it's done with a speed of light. I will definitely return with my family.
