The internet in my room was poor but I understand it is better in other rooms. Got only 12 basic channels in my TV but maybe I was operating the remote properly.... More

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.

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.
