We have stayed at Henri House each time we come to the Arts Festival and will continue to do so in the future. it's quiet, secure with a fast geyser that gives hot water, this was important because it was cold outside. The heating inside kept us warm Paul and Terry

We stayed at Henri House for two nights and it will definitely be my first choice of accommodation in Grahamstown from now onwards. Lovely spacious and comfortable rooms opening onto a beautiful garden. We loved our time there and look forward to returning.

I have stayed at Henri House twice now and you could not get more accommodating and friendly people. Andrew and Chiara were so helpful to us. I would certainly recommend Henri House to anyone. Many thanks to you all

I had the pleasure to stay at Henri House this Easter Weekend, to attend my friend's wedding. Clean, comfortable and friendly hospitality.

I will definitely return if I ever have the opportunity to visit... More

Owner Andrew Maffessanti is truly the most honourable and exellent of hosts. While I was travelling from quite a distance to stay over at his B&B in Grahamstown, he did not find it bothersome to organise some dinner for me from a local Restaurant to be delivered after my arrival in order for me to take a bath, rest and...

Situated on a quiet road on the outskirts of this small university town, Henri House is spotless, tidy and spacious. As a group of three, we had a huge lounge with dining table, and a double bed. It led through to the second bedroom/kitchen (yes, I know that’s an odd combination) and off that was the bathroom. So you need... More
