Bartholomew's Loft is an affordable, centrally situated self-catering accommodation ideally suited to families or friends travelling together in the Eastern Cape. We offer three bedrooms - one upstairs room with a king-size bed and two smaller twin rooms downstairs - and a spacious open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area.
Entrance to the property is through large gates with a paved driveway and ample secure parking. The historic building, once an old church, is full of character with its loft conversion and double-volume living area. Set off the historic Artificers Square, the original heart of 1820 Settler Grahamstown, it is within easy walking distance of the city centre and Rhodes University.

We only had one night there as a stopover on a long journey but the place was well equipped, spacious and comfortable. I would not describe the parking as ample – if you plan to leave early make sure your car is not parked in.
What a great spot - fabulously furnished and lots of welcoming touches - wish we could have stayed longer!
My week-long stay in the newest of the three units was just what I needed as a post-grad student. Away from campus and midtown hustle but within walking distance of everything. Elegant, quality interior and just enough space.
