“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed July 8, 2008

Spent two nights at the White House Guest House in Grahamstown, South Africa during the National Arts Festival at the end of June, 2008. It is located on a hill overlooking the city. The hostess, Birdy, was very energetic and welcoming and even though the house was full, went out of her way to accommodate our needs. Serves breakfast from 7 AM to 10 AM, quite long for a B & B, so works with most schedules. Breakfast was wonderful, room was very nice, house is beautiful. Would highly recommend for anyone staying in Grahamstown.
