Amazing breakfasts

5 on September 17, 2014

The house and room were beautiful, but what stood out to us most were the breakfasts. They were huge, unique, and delicious! In a great food city, they stood out as some of the best meals we had.

Lovely Place

The room was great. Breakfast a little earlier than most other B & B I have been to. The view from the room was great. A bit of a hike to get there on foot. Over all experience was great.

2 nights over $500 with no water pressure in shower! Rooms need updated.

Location is good fellow travelers, but for the price you can stay at a really swanky hotel. Our room on top floor was very "tired" looking. View was a window over the desk. Old decor (80's style), and TERRIBLE showers! (Barely enough pressure to wash, 5 min to get warm enough to shower and I Hate to waste water). We told innkeeper while we were there to make sure it was addressed for the next guest. No compensation offered. The innkeeper did not introduce herself when we arrived and we did not see her until the second morning. (Had to stay the minimum of 2 nights or we would have left after the first night). Bummer. So again for 2 nights, $550 with tax, you can stay at the best hotel in Downtown. Side note. We did directly ask for compensation twice for the barely functioning showers after leaving, no response. I would expect after they saw how bad it was we would get an apology at least. Nothing. This was the worst value of any Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in. We have stayed all over the US and in Europe.

Great Place to Stay

Nice location with great dining recommendations.

Excellent B & B

Heron Haus is well located within walking distance of Portland's wonderful Rose Garden, good restaurants and transportation to the downtown core. Guests have access to the main floor lounge and sun room as well as the patio. The breakfast was excellent and coffee, tea and cookies are available in the evenings.

Great place to stay in NW Portland

Pam created beautiful and delicious breakfasts using fresh, nourishing ingredients and served Portland-roasted coffee which met the high standard I had been promised. Heron Haus is located within easy walking distance of good dining and fun shopping. It is possible to board the light rail close to the B&B, but we found it so well located that we easily walked into the Pearl District, downtown, China Town and even the Portland Art Museum. I hope I have another opportunity to stay at Heron Haus .

Perfect setting

My wife and I had a wonderful three day stay at Heron Haus. The house is beautiful, filled with art, books, and comfortable furniture. Our room was spacious with a wonderful view of the Willamette and nearby mountains. Breakfasts were filling and delicious. Pam Walker, our host, was wonderful, suggesting great hiking trails and nearby restaurants. Heron Haus is within walking distance of Washington Park, the Japanese and Rose Gardens, and is only minutes away from downtown Portland via car.

Heron Haus Rocks

My stay was very enjoyable, with a great welcome and the sense that my comfort and enjoyment really mattered. Nice dinner recommendations and very quiet for sleeping even though the house was full.

Beautiful location!

Set in such a great neighbourhood, and Pam gave us such good recommendations for local shopping and dining.

Heron Haus is not what it used to be

2.0 on August 17, 2014

The furnishings were not quite what I remembered. The shower in our room was moldy, tile chipped, overall needed repairs. The breakfasts were tiny and I guess going for a natural experience. The new owner was not nearly as welcoming as the previous owner. I won't be back.
