Heeren House is a very quaint little Guest House in the heart of Malacca and right on the bank of the river. The owners Liz and Bernard are a very welcoming couple and made our stay very enjoyable. The Guest House only has 6 rooms each different but all comfortable and clean. Our room was a twin as no doubles were available and in addition to the beds we had a wardrobe, a towel rack, chair, small dresser and a luggage rack. There is a small TV on a shelf but there are only a few local channels available. We didn’t use it. Complimentary tea and coffee facilities were provided. The shower room / toilet was also nice and clean and the shower was of an electric type. Certainly not a power shower but adequate for our needs. A dispenser was on the wall in the shower cubicle with shower wash and shampoo.
Should you stay out until late there is a night member of staff who lets you in and bottled water was also for sale as none is provided free of charge in the room.
Breakfast was excellent and freshly prepared to order. Orange juice and tea or coffee, fresh fruit, breads and spreads and from the kitchen a choice of either fried or scrambled egg with tomato, chicken sausage, beans and hash brown. The small dining area is on the ground floor of the house which also lends itself to the reception desk and an antique / curiosity shop. During the day the dining area is open to the public for some local specialties which sounded lovely on the menu.
For the price of RM159 per night B&B it is no wonder that securing a reservation at the Heeren House can be difficult. We would certainly recommend that you try though as it is a gem of a place in a very historical town.
