On our way around Sth Africa on holiday in May 2013 we had the great pleasure of staying at this fantastic place. The staff were more than helpful and the rooms were incredible. In fact I can't say enough re the whole place. If in Grahamstown please stay there. It's the best Pam& Harley NZ

We stated for a few nights here and were impressed by the professional service and the great rooms. The bed and particularly the pillows were wonderfully comfortable. The electric blanket was great at keeping us warm on chilly spring nights.

We stopped over for one night on a business trip. The hotel was clean, comfortable and breakfast was good. Rooms are warm ( it was freezing outside) and there are electric blankets. A good stop over on route from east London to port Elizabeth. Thank you Bertie!

we stayed at The White House in Grahamstown on our way to Cape Town and were so pleased with Guest House that we book for a night on our journey back to KZN. They provided everything we needed for our little girl and it was a very comfortable, clean and friendly experience. They even packed our breakfast for our road trip early in the morning

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.
