I have been staying at St Aidans for years now and keep going back. Its location is superb and the staff are wonderful. The establishment is owned and run by the most wonderful couple who out their heart and soul into it. You always feel like family when you stay there. A great place to stay while in Grahamstown.

We have been staying at 1A St Aidans Guest Cottage for the past 8 years - seeing our children through school and finally university.The fantastic staff never failed to make every stay a comfortable and memorable one. You may be four star, but you give five star service! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your establishment to anyone visiting Grahamstown.

The only thing worth a star in this establishment is the young man who opens up for you - I think his name is George or Joseph and Charming young Zimbabwean man. Everything else is outdated. There is vintage and then there is St Aiden a mixture of dusty and ugly garage sale style bits and pieces. I don't mind...

Dear Cingashe Thank you very much for the positive comments with regards to George and now I would like to address the other issues you raised. I was surprised at your comments as this was not your first visit with us so you knew what we offered as a guest house. On the morning of the photo shoot I personally...

We have stayed over twice at St Aidans - once in the Luxury Cottage and once in the Lavender Room in the main house. On both occasions we experienced wonderful hospitality and lovely accommodation. Robyn, Celeste and George are great hosts and go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

We needed accommodation very close to our reunion venue, and Celeste at the St Aidan's Guest Cottage offered us the St Aidan's Suite, which was across the road and even closer to the venue. The Suite was exceptionally well equipped and perfect for our needs! Celeste was great in every way, ensuring our stay was pleasurable, answering questions and giving...

We had the privilege of staying at St Aidan's Guest Cottage. The place has been beautifully decorated with the emphasis on homeliness, cleanliness and comfort. Robyn and Celeste and their staff made our stay particularly enjoyable. Next time we are in Grahamstown, this will be our place of choice without doubt. Thank you all Noeleen V
