I recently stayed at Hethersett Guesthouse for 3 weeks, and from my first warm welcome from Jane, the owner, through to the final goodbye, my stay here was excellent. The rooms are large and comfortable, the pretty garden has a pool and lapa with an honesty bar, and a long verandah outside the main house and breakfast area (where I would sit in the winter sunshine with a cup of coffee.) However, it is the owners and staff that make Hethersett exceptional with their friendly and efficient service, which never wavered during my entire stay. Thanks for everything Jane.

Stayed: May 2013, traveled solo

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.

We had a lovely stay at Hethersett Guest House. We spent one night in the Johannesburg area. The Guest house is a short drive from the airport. The service is amazing, I don't think the staff could have been nicer or more helpful. This was a perfect way to start our trip in South Africa. Breakfast was delicious, I wish it had been warm enough to eat out on the terrace. If you are looking for a quiet, private place to stay with more personalized service than a hotel would offer, this is a perfect place to stay.

Hethersett was recommended by a work colleague and I am very glad I took the recommendation. I had a great stay at the guesthouse. Jane, Renee and the team there took care of my every need - arranging transport to and from the airport, sorting out dinner and lunch, ironing my shirts, making sure I had everything I needed to work from my room. The guesthouse is immaculate, the facilities are great - in particular the outdoors bar - and the breakfast was spot on. Will return on my next trip to Johannesburg.

Following our stay in February 2012 we now regard this as the standard by which we shall judge others.The welcome and subsequent service was warm and friendly but never intrusive, the accommodation is immaculately presented and spotlessly clean with after breakfast coffee on the covered terrace a lovely way to start the day. The "Honesty Bar " at the rear overlooking an immaculate lawn and shrubbery is a perfect place to relax at the end of a hot day. This is both care and attention of the highest standard which impressed us greatly and comes as highly recommended from both of us .Thanks to the whole staff for a most impressive stay , it was an absolute delight.
