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.

Very nice guest house, very clean and tidy. Excellent breakfast, and a good place to sit outside and relax and perhaps have a drink. Easily the best option of the the three places that I have stayed around Bedfordview, by a very large margin.
