Rala and Jolandi were the epitome of hospitality! Very pleasant stay, and conveniently close to town. The guesthouse rooms are lovely and apartment 12 was really great. The back cottages are a bit dated, could do with a revamp. Definitely recommend the White House for your stay in Grahamstown.

On our way around Sth Africa on holiday in May 2013 we had the great pleasure of staying at this fantastic place. The staff were more than helpful and the rooms were incredible. In fact I can't say enough re the whole place. If in Grahamstown please stay there. It's the best Pam& Harley NZ

We stated for a few nights here and were impressed by the professional service and the great rooms. The bed and particularly the pillows were wonderfully comfortable. The electric blanket was great at keeping us warm on chilly spring nights.

We stopped over for one night on a business trip. The hotel was clean, comfortable and breakfast was good. Rooms are warm ( it was freezing outside) and there are electric blankets. A good stop over on route from east London to port Elizabeth. Thank you Bertie!

The hostess, Birdy, was very energetic and welcoming and even though the house was full, went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Serves breakfast from... More
