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...

Stayed twice in April and both visits were up to the usual high standard. Rene and Trish always extend a warm welcome and the rooms are spotless. Ideal for an overnight visit when traveling from Brisbane to Sydney. Planning to come beck for an extended stay in the near future. Wholeheartedly recommend this property for it's consistency. Thanks again Rene.

Would recommend this gorgeous, charming guesthouse to adults and couples. It is in a spectacular position opposite the beach and reserve and it really is beautifully restored. Highlights include the soft furnishings and linen and a wonderful spacious serve yourself kitchen downstairs. There is also a popular cafe adjoining. Coffee, tea and bikkies as well as a generous continental breakfast... More

Central, comfortable, quaint. Thanks to the smiling host Rene for looking after us so well by putting us in the room we had showed an interest in when booking, at no extra charge!

Thank you so much for such an amazing review. Renee is having a well earned break at the moment but she will be absolutely chuffed to read your review. Many local trades people are responsible for the Guesthouse & I believe you really appreciated the work & love that went into the reno & setup. More

Wonderful three-night stay here to dive Fish Rock Cave - although Heritage Guesthouse is one of the more expensive options, it's totally worth it. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The building itself is a beautiful 19th century home lovingly restored in the early 2000s as a guest house. Combined with solid wood interior accents and furniture, the result... More

We choose this Guest House for an overnight stay on route to Yamba. We were not dissapointed, from the warm welcome, lovely rooms, good quality furniture and linens, spacious bathroom with walk-in shower (this was categorized as a disabled room(ground floor facing front). Breakfast was "help yourself", a good selection of cereals, jams, breads and juices all in the fridge,... More

We've stayed here a couple of times now and continue to be impressed with the rooms and the friendly staff. Central kitchen to make tea, coffee and have breakfast and a small courtyard gives you a chance to meet other guests if you want to.

Our first time in a guesthouse was delightful. Only stayed here as it was close to where we had to be and was recommended to us. Could not have been better with beautiful rooms with everything available including staff that are there if you need them but not intrusive if not. Looking forward to a return visit
