Absolutely one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed at.

Comfortable and well-appointed. Liz thoughtfully provides fresh milk, cold drinks, sherry, cereal and rusks as well as tea and filter coffee. This is our second stay and we would definitely book there again.

We had a wonderful stay there, everything was so comfortable and tasteful and it was just what we needed, we will definitely go back if we visit quaint Grahamstown again

We stayed at Fiddlewood Fields over the weekend of February 8 - 10 2014. The room is beautifully decorated, very spacious and the little extras such as the rusks and muesli with the tea and coffee was great (especially the morning of our departure at 5am back to Jo'burg). Fiddlewood's gardens are also beautiful and we would definitely stay again when visiting our daughter at Rhodes. Thank you for a lovely stay!

This B&B is definitely one of the most comfortable, friendly and enjoyable we have been to. Liz and her staff are top class and our stay was both enjoyable and a very happy experience. Thank you Liz, we will see you again.
