What a lovely stay, the rooms are beautiful and what can I say about the 5 star breakfast - second to none.  Thank you Claire for a memorable and relaxing stay, your extensive knowledge of Grahamstown also very helpful.  We will definitely be staying with you again for our next visit.

Very hospitable host. Nice spacious room, good breakfast and well organized. However we would have preferred a stand-alone shower, not over the bath. Would I stay again? Yes if I could have a stand-alone shower. My score 8 out of 10.
