Comfortable room. Quiet area. A little funny that the bathroom did not have a door for privacy! Staff was welcoming and check-in was easy. Convenient that credit card accepted, so payment could be done ahead of time.

We returned to Colonel Graham. Our stay was up to the previously experienced high standards. The rooms are all separate. Our room this time was a bit disjointed, in being so offered more space, with as much comfort. The staff were great and very accommodating.Even the gardener was friendly. The property was clean and neat. A microwave and kettle were...

Heavenly, beautiful airconditioned room in Frances House . Spacious and clean newly built, all furniture brand new. Thank you Sharika and Ann for another wonderful stay. No wonder you are mentioned in the Jan 2017 Getaway Magazine as worth a look. We visit Grahamstown annually and always enjoy our stay. Carport shelters would have been an added bonus.

This is a very nice place to stay in Grahamstown! The room was comfortable and spacious. Park-like grounds surround the historical buildings and secure parking is provided. The owner and staff were friendly and extremely accommodating. Highly recommended! Cindy and Tom, Texas, USA.

I spent two nights here and the accommodation was excellent. I arrived rather late at night - tired and hungry - but could not find any restaurant who would deliver at 9 on a Sunday evening. The very kind hosts suggested a place that was open and collected my meal for me! The next morning we had to go to...

I was here during the last few days of August while attending a conference, and on my last night there, I found that my key could not open the front gate, only the back gate, to which I did not know the way. I had not been informed of this at all, so I found myself waiting at the gate...

We stayed there for about ten days during the National Arts Festival. It was our second visit. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast very good and Anne was wonderful. Witi worked very well. To sum up: we were very happy there and it is a very well run guestbhouse. Hope to return.

Colonel Graham has just added another building to the back side on Frances street. It was absolutely brand new when we stayed and is possibily the best bed I have ever slept on.

We chose the same room for our 2nd stay and were once again very comfortable for the night. Last time we had a super breakfast but didn't have time on this occasion.. A very well-run establishment which we will use each time we go to Grahamstown. You won't be sorry !!
