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

Fantastic hosts! Claire and Gavin showed fantastic attention to detail. beautiful breakfasts, georgeous garden which is lovely to sit in for early morning tea or late night wine, rooms of a very high standard with comfortable beds, good shower, excellent tea and coffee making facilities, and beautifully decorated. Adorable kitten and two loveable dogs for entertainment.

We arrived quite late after a 10 hour drive from LeSotho so we couldn't quite appreciate how beautiful Jenny's Guesthouse grounds are. Gavin welcomed us, showed us to our room and quickly directed us to good spots in town to eat and watch soccer (The Rat and Parrot did not disappoint). The guesthouse and the rooms are beautifully appointed with... More

We arrived hot and tired after an 9 hour drive from Cape Town to a friendly welcome with all relevant info re a quick early dinner in town before enjoying a relaxed glass of wine in their beautiful garden, whilst being entertained by their cute and playful kitten, Georgie. After a quiet night, we enjoyed breakfast with them chatting about... More

We stayed only one night, but would certainly book again if in the area. Every detail was perfect, and we thoroughly appreciated it all. I agree with all the excellent reviews here. Our hostess, Claire, could not have been more helpful and kind.

Grahamstown is known for its academic heritage, and Jenny's provides a very contemporary redbrick contrast to the colonial surroundings. The stylish and very comfortable guest house is overseen by Claire, who has has thought of everything the visitor might need, right down to a well-designed local map with links to attractions and restaurants. The pool is a lovely touch, especially... More
