    Amazing accommodation

    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.

    Hervorragendes Loft, gemütlich und geräumig, kleiner Pool, aber trotzdem super. Die Altstadt kann man gut zu Fuß erreichen, Supermarkt in der Nähe. Wir konnten aus 4 Zimmern wählen, die Empfangsdame war super nett obwohl Heiligabend war und wir erst recht spät angekommen sind. Sie hat sich trotzdem jede Menge Zeit für uns genommen. Jederzeit wieder wenn wir in der Gegend sind.
