About Mhambi - The Traveller B&B

Colourful, private and secure, Mhambi cottage lies at the top of George Street looking up to Makana’s Kop in Grahamstown. The self-catering cottage offers accommodation for up to three people, and is ideal for a visiting academic or international traveller as the cottage is situated within walking distance of both town and campus.

The stone-walled cottage features a single bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, and an open-plan lounge and kitchen. The warm Oregon-pine kitchen work surface overlooks a clivia and tree fern shade garden. The spacious interior embraces Latin American and African elements reflected in its pictures and artworks, and a self-service continental breakfast is provided in the fully equipped kitchen. The cottage is nestled in a largely indigenous garden with stone and pebble pathways, and secure off-street parking is also available.

      Mhambi was ideal for the purposes of my stay in Grahamstown. I had my privacy and managed work with no disturbances. The place is spacious and clean and has a homely atmosphere to it.

      Thanks to Dez for my 11 day stay in his somewhat alternative, but very comfortable accommodation. My particular thanks go to him for responding promptly to a couple of minor problems that I experienced.

      Great stay, very cosy and private. All one could ask for, with private secret garden as well.

      Great place,  well run,  comfortable and professional. And Dez is an excellent host.  I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to spend time in Grahamstown.

      What a wonderful place to stay in.  Even though we only stayed overnight the facilities were great.  Much more than we expected. Will definitely stay here again.  Thank you for everything.
