Having not stayed in Guesthouses very often, I wasn't sure what to expect, but we couldn't have been happier - the place was spotless, spacious and very quiet. Claire and her husband couldn't have been more helpful.

I had one night at Jenny's and had the pleasure of meeting both Claire and her husband, quiet but charming people. I was made to feel really at home, given some good advice on a restaurant for dinner that evening and they were flexible in meeting changed needs. If I wanted a Bn B again in Grahamstown i would definitely...

Will always book in when am around Grahamstown for me it is not comparable. We had no complaints at all and wish we could stay for long but just that the time was too short.

On my arrival Claire and Gavin provided me with a warm welcome! My stay was most comfortable. The breakfasts offered a great choice of food, while breakfast company (both other guests and Claire) was most congenial. My room was well equipped, clean and very well kept throughout. In addition Claire went to quite some personal effort to assist me with...
