A fabulous location with lovely views from bedroom and dining room overlooking the cove. For such a location the room rates were very fair and the staff very friendly. Our room was fine with a cove view balcony and dinner and breakfast very good. But we felt that Herons Cove was slightly living on past glories. For similar prices we have had better furnished bedrooms and bathrooms. The balcony is shared with others and our neighbouring room occupants were having a mini party outside our window around 10 pm and being very noisy. It was noticeable that in reception all the many awards were from several years ago and the dinner and breakfast whilst very good had not got that extra edge we were expecting based on the advertising blurb. But nevertheless we would still recommend Herons Cove as a good place to stay

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Heron's Cove. The staff was so amazing. The balcony on our room was beautiful, not to mention the view from the bed. The food was AMAZING and I do not say that lightly. I still dream about their scallops and brownie (OMG). I will definitely be back to stay here again and explore more of this community. Thank you for an amazing time!!
