          I had engagements in Grahamstown and arrived after 22:00, found mature friendly gentleman waiting for me; he ushered me to a spacious and clean room. I was leaving early in the morning and the staff were there to see me off.

          Their service is outstanding, rooms and tidy. There's peace and quite at night like you are in the comfort of your own home. Breakfast was served warm. The location is easy to find. I got everything as requested like an outside room and early breakfast.
