The Purple Heron is wonderful in every way – the location the hosts, the rooms, the wildlife and the breakfast! The guest house is in a perfect location to explore the Garden Route and is in a wonderful area to relax.
The river opposite is a haven for wildlife and Jenny is more than happy to provide you with copious amounts of knowledge on the birdlife.
The rooms are beautiful and provide you with everything you need during your stay. Jenny and Paul are extremely welcoming and provided us with so much advice during our stay.
The breakfast was delicious and the home baked bread a real plus – thanks Paul! I would 100% stay here again and recommend to any family or friends visiting the area.
