Pleasant stay
The staff at Bartholomew's Loft were extremely friendly and helpful. Due to protests in Makhanda, we were unable to return home so we had to extend our stay and the owner was so generous and offered us a discounted price. The room is also large, has a heater and many other facilities that make the stay pleasant.

It was really an amazing place. Was just there for one night on Business but I have found my home away from home when I am in Grahamstown.

Historical self-catering stay
Excellent venue. Beautiful wooden floors in an historical building. Safe, quiet,clean and very spacious. Nice kitchen amenities for self-catering. Not far from town but perhaps a bit far for a walk.
