A lovely secure guesthouse with the personal touch and warmth. Although I only stayed one night I was impressed with genuine warmth of my host. The facilities are excellent, room spacious and hospitality faultless. I would love to visit with more time and in warmer weather.

Very comfortable accommodation in a secure environment. Our room was spacious and tastefully furnished. The breakfast was excellent. At all times we were made to feel welcome and valued guests and having a very late checkout (to watch the SA NZ cricket match!!) on the day of departure was much appreciated. Conveniently located for access to three shopping centres as... More

Where to start, I have just stayed at Hethersett for 2 weeks, a business trip, and this was the perfect place to be. A great location only 15 minutes from the airport, very central - within walking distance to two very good shopping malls, and a smaller strip mall which was also handy. The staff were great, very attentive &... More

My partner and I recently spent 3 glorious days at Heathersett. Wonderful! The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation is spotless with little touches to make ones stay pleasurable. Slippers and gowns to use, a bar area for relaxing, breakfast lovely with the most delicious jams made by Jane's Mum. We cant wait to visit again.

Loved our 5 night stay - the fresh cooked breakfasts, sitting in the oasis garden near the pool and just being able to relax. Very central and close to many great restaurants and coffee shops. Thanks Jane and the friendly staff.

This is one of those rare, hidden gem hotels. It is fantastically placed: near the airport, near business areas and easy to get into places like Sandton and the centre. The hotel is a wonderful, experience - the owners have struck the balance between boutique hotel and a true home from home. Comfortable, spacious and relaxing.It is great to be... More
