Very welcoming and friendly hosts. The accommodation was very neat, clean & comfortable. Will definitely go back there whenever we have to stay in Grahamstown. Highly recommended. Close proximity to the central business area and shopping mall.

We went for Kday the sports festival between DSG St Andrews College and Kingswood College. The rooms were warm with electric blanket on the bed. Lovely breakfast choice of hot breakfast fruit salad yogut and freshly made scones. No complainants will happily stay there again.

Everything ok except showerwas absolutely terrible. No pressure, not even a shower head? B&B needs great sleeping and washing / bathing / showering facilities as breakfast is not that important. It was ok overall.

Couldnt fault it, except for the bathroom extractor fan that sounded like a boeing 747 coming in to land! From a female point of view, super mirrors and lighting for make up. Good long mirror. Nice extra blanket in cupboard that we used because we like weighty covers on us to feel cosy. All home comforts available. Breakfast super. These... More

We highly recommend this Jenny's Guest House B&B. It is located in a safe area, very close to Rhodes University, restaurants and amenities. Staying at this place, you also feel to be more of a local and not a tourist.

I was in Grahamstown to move my mother out of Settler's Hospital into a frail care facility. I'd travelled half way around the world and was tired and stressed on arrival. I had stayed at Jenny's Guest House before and knew I would be comfortable there, and close to the hospital. Thank you again for looking after me at this... More

We only stayed one night. The room was small and comfortable and clean but nothing special. As just an overnight stop it was OK but value for money, I'm not sure. Certainly not a must repeat experience.
