What our guests are saying about us...

  • I took my family to Knysna for the Oyster fest 2016 and booked accommodation with herons Guest Lodge. Upon arrival, the friendly staff greeted us warmheartedly. I felt great as the atmosphere was so tranquil and loved the fact that it felt like I was in a forest. Our apartment was comfortable and I was happy that the air-conditioning was already set and the room was warmed up, as it was raining and cold outside upon arrival. Services was good, we enjoyed our entire weekend stay. I will definitely recommend Herons Guest Lodge and I will definitely visit them in future. Thank you 🙂 🙂

    “Pleasant stay”
  • The accommodation was easy to find, in a nice location. Our room was very comfortable, and we were assisted by a helpful host, who ensures that there is always a pleasant atmosphere. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    “Enjoyed Stay.”
  • The personnel was friendly and good service. The room was cleaned every morning and a nice location. Easy to get to the Waterfront and around. I was very pleased with the property. I would definitely go back again.

    “A nice clean place to get away for a weekend.”
  • We travelled to Knysna for the Oyster Festival in Jul 16. What a warm, cozy and peaceful venue to stay! Even when my friend got sick, the managers went out of their way to assist. Will definitely visit them again.
