The property is beautiful. The rooms also beautiful and comfortable not to mention clean. Sandra is a darling even though only saw her once. We felt welcomed and definitely enjoyed our stay. Would come back any day.

I mentioned that we would be celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. On arrival, Sandi showed us to the Chocolate Room right at the end, next to the swimming pool and a cosy undercover...

I stayed at 17th on 5th Avenue for two nights in October either side of a trip to Grahamstown and I enjoyed the convenient location to the airport which is less than 5 minutes away. Sandra and Lee are wonderfully friendly hosts and Lee makes a fantastic breakfast. I would recommend Nutmeg twin room which was nice and quiet. Thank...

Thankfully not too many flights in and out of this regional airport or it could be noisy. I was unfortunate to be allocated a room right at the entrance and adjacent to the car park.(see room tips) The guest house...

I would gladly recommend this guest house and would stay there again. We had a lovely time and the manager and his wife was really kind and the service excellent. The locality so near to the airport is also a point in their favour

We chose 17 on 5th Avenue as it was just three minutes drive from the airport. The accommodation is beautiful, with very warm hosts Sandra and Lee. The rooms were very clean and well appointed with tea / coffee making facilities provided. Free WiFi is also available.
