Top Accommodation for Comrades
Only 3km from the Comrades start, exactly what was needed for relaxing before and afterwards - with a great view of the city skyline.

never had wors
awful place
We booked a room with kitchen and jacuzzi. When we arrived there was a horrible smelling room with jaccuzi but without kitchen. The lady told us there were no rooms with kitchen at Herons. After negotiations we got a room without jacuzzi and we were allowd to use the kitchen at the lounge area, next to the room. When we opened the fridge there was some food in there that was moldy. The moment we opened the oven we new where the smel in the kitchen came from. There was a dish in the oven filled with mold. It was food that was in there for several weeks. The same we found in the pots. For those who don't believe this, we have some pictures that we like to send. The wifi that was for free was most of the time not working. We spend a lot of money and payed in advanced for the 3 nights for a room that we didn't got and an awful kitchen to prepare your food.

Lovely hotel with warm room service
Good breakfast and clean rooms
Good breakfast and clean rooms. A small but good enough garage for parking. Kind housekeepers.

Comfy enough for the night
Close to town
can't complain at the price. little things like soap and shampoo in the bathroom would have made it better. at least there was tea and coffee. wasn't able to stay around for breakfast so cannot comment unfortunately.
