Centrally situated in this lovely town which warrants more than just one day stay. Spacious and comfortable room, very secure and very quiet which ensured a wonderful night's rest. Host exceptionally friendly and helpful. Name is misleading because we had to find out on arrival that breakfast is not included but have to be booked seperately. Only negative thing is... More

Wonderful hostess, Lovely scenery. Beautiful cottages. Sad it was only for a night. Grahamstown is pretty little Town with a welcoming and modern approach but with a oldfashioned touch. We can recomend the restaurant Red Spur.

Wonderful B&B - Loved how spacious and homely the room was. The bed was super comfortable we did not want to even leave. Beautiful & quiet surrounds makes it the perfect place to relax and the host even took the time to tell us about the nearby activities.

Very pleasant experience, centrally situated, clean and comfortable. Could have a few more TV channels, but who goes away to watch TV anyway :) Bathroom a little cramped, but everything's there that you need. We liked it!

My overnight stay was very comfortable and warm. Warm because it was very cold outside. The hut provides everything one needs, even if one had to stay a few extra days. Breakfast was warm and filling.

Stayed here for one night whilst travelling on business between East London and PE, would love to return with the family one day. The owner greeted me on arrival and could not have been more helpful. The accommodation in set a short drive off the N2, but you feel as though you are out in the country. Grahanstown is no... More

Booked well in advance for two specific rooms only told on arrival that rooms were taken. Very disappointed. Rooms definitely need renovation. Host was lovely. Breakfast was very great. Location was nice and quiet.

A Stone's Throw bed and breakfast is the perfect place for a peaceful relaxing retreat. Suzanne and her staff made every effort to make it comfortable and we settled in perfectly for a few nights stay. Truly a haven

This was a first for me - a B & B that does not serve breakfast unless you cough up another R50. A nice clean room but the whole experience was spoilt by not being told that breakfast was not included.
