We had an excellent experience at the Herons Guest House. We will definitely use them again in the future and also recommend them to other people. Rooms were very neat and very cosy. Breakfast was also very nice.

A very short trip - but most comfortable and a great quiet location within a secured area. . Easy access to the 'Heads' and the Waterfront. Rooms are spotless, well equipped and very spacious. Very welcoming management.

A clean facility in a quiet part of Knysna within a few miles from tourist attractions and golf courses. There is an inviting pool in a shady part of the garden. Check in was very quick. There is a restaurant within 1/2 mile as well as those on Thessen island and the yacht basin
