My two sons and I stayed at Jenny’s Guest House on the way down from Port Shepstone to St Francis Bay. Accommodation was excellent: clean, well equipped, safe, with secure parking. It’s about a kilometer from the center of Grahamstown. Claire and Gavin well great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was a wonderful start to the day Overlooking the garden and the hills in the distance. Thoroughly recommended.

We've been staying at Jenny's for the first weekend of the National Arts Fest for well over 10 years now as well as a number of time when we visited Grahamstown during our son's time at Rhodes. By staying there year after year is a good indication that we are extremely happy with the hospitality and service received which is superb. We look forward to each and every visit.

We were very impressed not only by the service we received but how quick it was to get booked in. That day we battled to get other places to confirm booking for us. Thank you for the good service. Your rooms were clean and comfortable. Service was good. We will most deff. use Jennys Guest House again.

We had a lovely stay at Jenny's Guest House and would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone who visits Grahamstown or its surroundings. The place was clean, the linen and towels were clean and fresh the bed was a dream very comfortable which ensured a good night rest. I recommend this venue and would use it again in future.
