We stayed one night at 9 on heron and Margo & Agnieszka were so welcoming and helpful. The room was good. It was spotless and had nice touches of beach themed pictures and decor. The breakfast was excellent and filling. There are nice little things like the owners checking if you have any dietary requirements the night before they prepare your breakfast. They directed us to good places to eat and places to visit. They even provided maps and marked good routes to take to see the countryside. It is not far from the town and there is a pub within walking distance. They recommended The Heads restaurant and we had an excellent view and a good lunch. The B&B is surrounded by amazing plants and trees. There is also the benefit of free wi fi which is invaluable for travellers. There is a variety of places to have an evening meal in Knysna. I would not hesitate to recommend 9 on heron B&B for an enjoyable stay.
