Truly a wonderful stay in a very well appointed quiet guest house overflowing with luxury. I will definitely stay here again, and must thank Linda for ensuring I had everything, and for preparing such wonderful breakfasts

When we arrived we were received by very friendly staff. The rooms are immaculate and beautiful. The breakfast was delicious the morning. All 5 people in my group staying there was very impressed and enjoyed it immensely. We all said that we will go back to Grahams Town just to stay here.

I would stay there again.
