I stayed there in august 2013, and felt so welcome like hardly anywhere. The owners have a lot of good hints for places of interest and things to do. Their home is very nice, the rooms very always clean and all of them have a small terrace outside with a view in the greens. Splendid!

We have stayed at 9 On Heron several times now. There is no point in looking anywhere else it is 'spot on'. The owners (A & M) are fabulous the place is spotless and the price is good - it is just what we need so no doubt we will stay again in the future. Plus the shower pressure is... More

We stayed here in November 2011 and when we realised that we would be including Knysna again on this our second trip to South Africa we knew straight away where we would be staying. You could not receive a warmer welcome from Margo and Agnieszka (or from Tao the cat-dog!) and it felt like visiting old friends. 9 On Heron... More

Me and my wife stayed in Knysna, one of the most beautiful and peaceful towns in South Africa, for 3 nights. The first thign which struck us was the peaceful and quite close to nature like surroundings and the set up. The hosts, I can assure, are the most friendliest and warm hosts you can ever get.

I stayed 3 nights and, from the start, felt really at home. Margo and Agnieszka went above and beyond the level of service that I would expect in any hotel/guest house. They anticipated my needs, before I even knew what they were! Offering to lend me a beach towel and umbrella - absolutely vital because it was so hot, and... More

We stayed one night at 9 on heron and Margo & Agnieszka were so welcoming and helpful. The room was good. It was spotless and had nice touches of beach themed pictures and decor.

Smallish but very comfortable and homely rooms. Charming fully wooden building. No dstv but that only mattered to my mother. We had a lovely time around the very nice Braai area with friends in the evening. A swimming pool would have been nice, but then again I guess you can't have it all... The 2 hosts are a pleasure.

I stayed at 9 on Heron for a week in October. Margo and Agnieszka were the perfect hosts recommending places of interest to visit and good nearby restaurants. The room was very pleasant and clean. I will definately be back to stay at 9 on Heron when I am next in Knysna.

We spent two nights in 9 on Heron and had a really good time. The rooms were tidy and well furnished, breakfast was really good.

We spent three nights last October.

The b & b is very quiet, clean and situated in a residential district not so far from downtown. Fantastic... More
