Talia is very friendly and helpful. The whole setting and atmosphere of the place is calm and cozy. No TV and coffee in bedrooms, but kitchen and TV available in communal dining/lounge. I prefer more privacy and would like Coffee and TV in my bedroom. Beautiful bedroom.

Thank your for the review, but kindly note we do not have a Talia working for us and we definitely do have televisions in the rooms as well as tea/coffee facilities and supplies in every room, quite sure there was a mix up in locations but happy travels. All best Suzanne More

We loved our stay at A Stone's Throw. The cottage allowed us to have our own space with all the essentials we needed. The owner was also close at hand. If you are looking for great accommodation in Grahamstown, you won't be disappointed.

Centrally situated in this lovely town which warrants more than just one day stay. Spacious and comfortable room, very secure and very quiet which ensured a wonderful night's rest. Host exceptionally friendly and helpful. Name is misleading because we had to find out on arrival that breakfast is not included but have to be booked seperately. Only negative thing is... More

Wonderful hostess, Lovely scenery. Beautiful cottages. Sad it was only for a night. Grahamstown is pretty little Town with a welcoming and modern approach but with a oldfashioned touch. We can recomend the restaurant Red Spur.

Wonderful B&B - Loved how spacious and homely the room was. The bed was super comfortable we did not want to even leave. Beautiful & quiet surrounds makes it the perfect place to relax and the host even took the time to tell us about the nearby activities.

Very pleasant experience, centrally situated, clean and comfortable. Could have a few more TV channels, but who goes away to watch TV anyway :) Bathroom a little cramped, but everything's there that you need. We liked it!

My overnight stay was very comfortable and warm. Warm because it was very cold outside. The hut provides everything one needs, even if one had to stay a few extra days. Breakfast was warm and filling.

Stayed here for one night whilst travelling on business between East London and PE, would love to return with the family one day. The owner greeted me on arrival and could not have been more helpful.

Booked well in advance for two specific rooms only told on arrival that rooms were taken. Very disappointed. Rooms definitely need renovation. Host was lovely. Breakfast was very great. Location was nice and quiet.
