We stayed for only one night as we were travelling from Brisbane to Sydney and found the Heritage Guesthouse on Tripadvisor. We were upgraded by our hostess to an upstairs room with access to the front balcony and a view over the headland. It was very comfortable and quiet. A continental breakfast was included in the price, making for excellent... More

We stayed one night at the Heritage Guesthouse while travelling north and wished that we could stay longer. We were welcomed by our very friendly host, Trish, who is a font of knowledge on the local area. The Heritage Guesthouse is located on the headland opposite a lovely parkland, which is bookended by two of the most beautiful little beaches.... More

South West Rocks in the winter time - magic! Staying across the road to some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia in the Heritage Guesthouse - fantastic. Do yourself a favour, get off the Highway and stay here for a few days or a few weeks! The rooms are comfortable, clean and very nicely decorated. Given the age of... More

This is probably one of the nicest heritage accommodation restorations I have seen. The attention to keeping the original features is first class. The rooms are set out to minimize interruption to other guests. The room are big, comfortable, well appointed and clean. The King bed is to die for. We booked one of the top store front rooms that...

I found this little gem and it was perfect. The guest house is well over 100 years old, but the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Excellent location - just a few metres walk to the waterfront or the 'local' for a beer and a great meal. would certainly recomment the Heritage without hesitation

My wife and I keep coming back to this charming Guesthouse whenever we stay in SWR. Rooms are clean, and Renee is always very welcoming. The building is "heritage" in nature and this along with the décor is part of it's charm. We love the communal kitchen where you help yourself - plus meet with other guests. Location is ideal...
