About Somerset Guest House

The warm atmosphere in the cottage is created with wooden flooring, high ceilings and skylights, which is accentuated through our old-fashioned hospitality.

Quaint cottage, centrally located in Grahamstown and on the doorsteps of St Andrews College, DSG and Rhodes University. It is within walking distance of the town and all its amenities.

This home-away-from home consists of five serene, en-suite rooms, an entertainment area with indoor braai facility, a lobby lounge with inviting fireplace, and secure off-street parking.

Grahamstown is an historic attraction. From the 1820 Settlers' National Monument, Albany Museum and the Observatory Museum to mention a few.

For activities surrounding Grahamstown there are day safari's available, the Kwantu Elephant Sanctuary for a close encounter, and many more. Once a year Grahamstown hosts the National Arts Festival.

We were disappointed that on arrival (around 12pm) our room wasn't ready. We desperately wanted to shower and were shown to a dirty room and given towels that didn't look clean.

Room smelt of damp, had to go find the cleaner for our towels. Light bulb blown in the bedroom, overpriced for a room sharing a common kitchen. No plug for the basin.
