Hebron Haven Hotel was developed around the concept of providing accommodation to travelling people and this lead to additional rooms being built as the demand increased. Later, with the development of Michaelhouse and Hilton, there was great demand for accommodation during sporting events and on weekends when parents came to visit the boys. Earlier years saw Hebron as a working farm and the home of the Lions River Polo Club. Guest farms as getaway destinations were also at a time very popular.
As business improved so more rooms were needed and old storerooms and outbuildings were converted into rooms as these amenities were moved further from the public view. This has given rise to the Old English feel of Hebron Haven where every room has its own character. Unfortunately this is a bit of a builder’s nightmare with no uniformity in design, shape or structure. Doors and windows were fitted as they were available, with very little matching the next building. This however gives Hebron its own charm and uniqueness.
There is a continuous programme of refurbishment in the rooms as well as on the property. The rooms are tastefully decorated with soft furnishings that further enhance the Old English atmosphere and provide a comfortable night's sleep, and reservations are sometimes made up to a year in advance to secure accommodation.
The main building features a very comfortable lounge to relax in, read a book, chat with friends, or just enjoy the ambiance of the country in front of the fireplace. The King and Riddle pub is a firm favourite with the locals, and offers an almost tangible atmosphere perhaps remnant of the elation of previous wins by the Natal Sharks. Sporting events, locals’ night on Thursdays, and Sunday lunches fill the pub to capacity, adding to the spirit of the King and Riddle.
Hebron Haven is child friendly and family orientated, offering 33 en-suite bedrooms accommodating up to 96 guests. Rooms may be double, twin or family size, sleeping from two to five in a room.
