We only stayed one night. The room was small and comfortable and clean but nothing special. As just an overnight stop it was OK but value for money, I'm not sure. Certainly not a must repeat experience.

Jenny's has a very homely feel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Lovely fluffy towels and the bathrooms are well equipped with lots of lovely homely touches. Jenny's is in a quiet neighbourhood with secure parking. The excellent breakfast is my favourite part of staying and Jenny's.

On a road trip from Durban back to Cape Town, we stopped here for the night. Very clean, extremely well equipped, and very courteous hosts. A beautiful home with lovely gardens, and situated in a residential area, close to center of town but away from all the noise. Wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended! Great water pressure in the shower too, a...

As owner of Glenview Guest House in Durban (rated No 1 on TripAdvisor) I am curious to see how my place compares to highly rated guest houses elsewhere in South Africa. Jenny's Guest House (well managed by Clair & Gavin) is one of the places with that wonderful mix: comfortable room and bathroom, tranquil setting, a good breakfast but above...

Good place to stay as stopover. Friendly staff, good facilities. Nice neighbourhood. They said free wifi but from our room there was no signal, so that didn't work for us at all. They need a range extender to cover that room I guess. Pool, nice breakfast with options. Comfortable beds, good shower. Our little boy loved playing with the dogs...

My wife booked this guest house direct. Its in one of the Grahamstown's suburbs - a 5 minute drive to downtown. We had the two bedroom apartment over the garage. The apartment itself is fine. Ideal for a family with two bedrooms with en-suites, a kitchen area and sitting area. The couple who run it are very pleasant and welcoming....

Thank you for your review. I have investigated the issue of providing Wi-Fi for multiple devises and have established that it is possible to have access to multiple devises from a single voucher. On your advice I have increased the duration of access. Kind Regards Claire
