I completely agree with Red947's review & wish we'd read it first!! The quality of the rooms has definitely not improved since then. Our garden room was beyond tired - the shower floor looks dirty & in need of a good scrub, the interior of the en-suite door needs revarnishing & the hand towel holder is rusty beyond words.
The tv is ancient & has no dstv. Unfortunately for us we stayed here on Sunday when Cradock closes & some tv to watch would have helped.
All the furnishings in our room were tired & shabby. The outside paintwork of our room again is in need of re-painting.
The swimming pool is filthy & certainly not the least bit inviting.
The dogs are fine but the sheep bleating on & off is not relaxing & neither is the train line at the bottom of the garden.
The finishing touch is the rat/mouse poison bait box under the chair next to the bed.
We chose this establishment based on the photos & reviews on the booking website & because we wanted somewhere within walking distance of the main town.
This is certainly not good value for money, we paid R950.00 for one night booking through "Rooms for Africa".

We booked last minute and got a great welcome from the owner, Merrick. The Heritage House is rather different than Tuishuis (the top-rated B&B in Cradock). Heritage is a big old private property with rooms facing the pool and large and very pretty garden which rambles out to the Fish River. Very comfortable and nicely appointed rooms both in the house and the 2 garden cottages. There's a lovely dining room and excellent breakfast. Merrick will gladly give you a tour of the house (which has been added on to from the 1850's) and the garden. It's a top-notch B&B.

We didn't stay at Tuishuis, but had dinner at the adjoining restaurant (which was excellent) and saw the rooms. The Tuishuis B&B part is charming in a different way: a row of picturesque old townhouses has been turned into comfortable rooms full of history. Being on a street, you get more of a sense of the town, but none of the peaceful garden at Heritage. Both places of high standard. We stayed Nov 8, 2012.

Room Tip: I had a garden room near the pool: very quiet and comfortable. Rooms inside the house are easier...

We had not booked our stay in Cradock in advance so we got lucky to get the last room at the Heritage B&B. In the morning the hosts apologized because they gave us the closest bedroom to the breakfast room (it was the only one free), but frankly I didn't notice. We had no trouble in sleeping until pretty late, and we didn't hear any noise. The Heritage House is a very nice and cozy building, with very charming rooms. And clean of course!
The garden is big and well-cared, a green oasis. The hosts are very welcoming, chatting with them after breakfast was a nice pause during our tour of the Karoo. I would definitely come back.

And I cannot recommend enough the breakfast!

We had a lovely stay at Heritage House. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are warm and cosy - it was very cold when we were there - and the breakfast is great. The dogs are also fabulous!

The hosts were very accommodating: they made a plan to accommodate our son as he did not want to sleep in a room by himself, so they added a bed into our room; and we had an extra person for breakfast unexpectedly, and it was not a problem.
