We managed to book easily on-line from their website and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and cozy and we enjoyed sitting outside on the little wooden balconies. The garden was well kept and the area nice and peaceful, also close to town. The girls were friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. They easily shared their local knowledge...

The atmosphere is simple but vey nice. You have just what you need in the bedroom. Bed is comfortable! The owners are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent even if we don't eat meat. It is close to town and easy to access. Great!

As quite discerning travelers it is seldom we find a place where the atmosphere is so professional yet fun and funky, the people so knowledgeable and informative yet unintrusive and the overall vibe just, well, perfect! Just enough cozyness and comfort and just enough excitement. A perfect balance. In short, the location is perfect, close to all the attractions, crawling...

9 on Heron Knysna Bed & Breakfast is a quiet and comfortable place to spend a few days (we actually regretted that we couldn't stay more than 2 nights). The owners are incredible:charming and caring. Agnieszka prepares the best breakfats ever. Definitely worth recommendation!

We originally booked for just 1 night but changes to our itinery meant we had an extra night in the Storms River/Knysna area. So glad we added the extra night in Knysna and especially glad we chose 9 on Heron as our base. Great hosts and a very clean and practical place to stay. We will certainly stay with Margo...

The B&B was easy to book, a breeze to check in, at a very convenient location for where I needed to be and incredibly friendly staff. The rooms were extremely clean and well presented and I very much liked the lush setting for the private porches. I really felt like I got the Knysna experience at a great price.

My spouse and I travelled with his father and wife to Knysna and we found this B&B on the web. Due to construction along the highway, we arrived later than we had planned for (9 pm) yet Margo was so friendly and welcoming upon arrival that we felt right at home. Our rooms were EXTREMELY clean (a very good sign!)...

We unfortunately stayed only one night at '9 on Heron'. We would have easily stayed a week or two without a second thought if we could!
