History– past to present
Although Heritage House was aptly named and turned into a bed and breakfast in 1999 it is a 180 year-old homestead which has grown over the years from its original design of 2 rooms with a passage in between.
The present owners, Meyrick Kretschmer and Wim Vermeulen bought the house in 2007 and can be justifiably proud of a special mention in the 2009 AA TRAVEL GUIDE as one of the ‘Greatly Improved Properties of 2009.’ Heritage House was also a finalist in the 2009 AA Travel Guides American Express Accommodation Awards programme. Meyrick trained with the Holiday Inn group and has managed guesthouses in Vanrhijnsdorp, Clarens and Ladybrand. Wim is Hotel School trained and has managerial experience with Holiday Inn, the Southern Sun group and the world famous Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town.
