This place is truly a home away from home. Friendly reception. The kitchen offers a lovely breakfast with eggs fresh from the yard. A added feature is that Heritage House has a lovely garden! And great turn down service. Thank you! Hope to see you soon!

We recently stayed at Heritage Guest House in Alexandria on our road trip back home. We can definitely recommend this establishment to anyone who is looking for accommodation in the Eastern Cape. Beautiful old building rich in history. Comfortable rooms, great hosts and a wondeful breakfast. If you have a bit of time do take a stroll through the town,some lovely old buildings and ambiance.

Our hosts Colleen and Peter were always warm and friendly just like everything else about this lovely old building which is older than Johannesburg, which is a story that the owners love to relate. It offers B & B with a scrumptious home cooked breakfast which is enjoyed before a walk in the spacious grounds which boast a few peacocks, a fish pond and delicious black mulberries in season. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped with shower and bath. A separate kitchen is at the disposal of the guests to prepare light meals and coffee and tea any time they desire. Apparent the town donkey and billy goat sometimes raid the front garden although we missed them on our visit. Highly recommended

Hi Ronald, Thank you so much for that review. We love our place and it gives me great pleasure when guests appreciate what we have to offer and enjoy it for what it is. I hope there will be a good reason for another visit to Alexandria in the future and that we can welcome you and your family again. By the way, the billy goat accompanied by several nanny goats and their kids managed to sneak in undetected and had a great munch of my shrubs before they were sent on their way. All part of life in the country, I guess.

Kathleen went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. The breakfast was delicious and beautiful. The back yard with its beautiful landscaping, cats, dog, hens and babies felt like an oasis. We will be back.
