About Browns 137 High Street Guest House

137 High Street Guest House is situated in Grahamstown, and forms part of the popular Frontier Country route. 137 High Street has been totally renovated and comes to you as Browns 137 High Street Guest House and Restaurant.

This historic guest house, with its solid yellow wood floors and ceilings has just recently been completely renovated to a modern comfortable establishment without losing its old world charm. The Brown family history in Grahamstown starts with the arrival of Stephen Brown one of the original 1820 settlers.

Each of our bedrooms has a king-size bed which can be converted into two twin beds, if required. In addition, two rooms can accommodate one extra single bed, making it ideal for parents visiting their children. Rooms are serviced daily. Each room has a flat screen TV with DStv, tea/coffee making station, wall heaters and ceiling fans for making your stay comfortable.

Brown’s restaurant will be serving delicious meals making it an obvious choice for selecting this restaurant for your fine dining. Meals can be enjoyed inside the restaurant next to the cozy fireplace in winter or outside under the covered patio next to the magnificent 1840 historic dry stone wall.

You don’t have to be a student to appreciate all the things to do in Grahamstown. While this small town is most well known for Rhodes University and the National Arts Festival, it holds many more hidden and eclectic activities.
