We stayed at Hethersett in July while visiting family in the area. We had the inter-leading room facility which was very handy for me with two children aged 10 and 7 years.

Stayed for two nights in a wonderful, spacious, clean, room with a desk and lots of storage. It is in a secure estate where I could walk/jog safely. 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....

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. Conveniently located for access to three shopping centres as...
