I am not sure why this B&B has received so many excellent comments because it is only average. Either the other reviewers are easily pleased or don't get out much. We had a rather depressing room that had dark wooden panels on the sloping ceiling. The ensuite was very tiny with only enough room to just about dry yourself without... More

This place is just exquisite. Claire is so incredibly welcoming, and was more than willing to show me where to go and catch a few sights around town in my overnight stopover. The peaceful atmosphere and well thought out additions to the room really make it a fantastic place to stay.

The reservation, welcome, tour, room and facilities were all great. However, the mattress in the bedroom in the front left looking at the house, was far too soft resulting in me having a bad night. Time to invest in a new mattress!

Well, found the place on Rooms for Africa and stayed for e week as a part of a research study. Claire and Gavin are excellent host and helped us with contacts that we could interview. We also met a fellow guest, Henk, that showed us the ropes in and around Grahamstown. Rooms are large and clean at the guesthouse, breakfast... More

I stayed at Jenny's Guest House for one night and can truly recommend it. The room was clean and cosy, the bedding and towels clean and inviting. The area is quiet and the hosts are friendly. Breakfast was fresh and tasty.

We have stayed 3 times now and never been disappointed. Claire and Gavin run a immaculate guest house. The rooms and linen are of a excellent quality and standard. The staff are friendly and very efficient. Breakfast is always very good with choices from fruit and yoghurt to a full English breakfast. A true gem in Grahamstown.

An attractive and tastefully furnished house with a lovely garden and rooms to match. The two Scottish terriers were a delight to watch. Extremely clean & the service excellent. We had to leave by 5 am & the packed breakfast was wholesome & delicious. Thoughtful hosts. Would recommend to anyone.

I have a few regrets about my holiday and one was that we only stayed one night at Jenny's. Spotlessly clean bedroom and sitting area made our first impression a great one. Gavin helped us in with the cases and showed us how things worked. We didn't see much of Grahamstown as we were visiting a friend and Pumba Game... More
