Love the White Heron - beautiful complex, very comfortable and clean rooms. However, a request was made for a late check out which was declined - reason provided was the venue is very busy. Also upgraded the original room booking and reception was going to email a copy of the invoice - it has not been received yet. A further request for the invoice was made and I am yet to have a response.
