I stayed overnight at the Cornerstone Manor in Makhanda and it was a great choice. It's a grand old home with character and all the comforts that one could wish for. "Gogo" provided a very friendly reception and prepared an excellent breakfast to order.

I am in awe of the service excellence displayed at Cornerstone Manor. The cleanliness and experience was just out of this world. Goggo who oversees the Guesthouse made our experience even more AMAZING! and really made us feel at home. This is my second visit to Grahamstown and my stay at Cornerstone far exceeds my first visit and stay at a neighbouring guesthouse. I will definitely recommend this guesthouse and will prioritise my next visit and stay with Cornerstone Manor. Sharon, thanks for making us feel so welcome and accommodated and know that Gogga is just a GEM :) Simone & Bernhard

Cornerstone is a very good choice for a stay in Grahamstown. We were only there for 1 night as a stopover but found it comfortable, well located and secure. Gogo cooked us a very nice breakfast, the fruit salad was super fresh and delicious. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent stay at Cornerstone Manor. Rooms were very comfortable, clean and situated in a quiet, tranquil setting. The location is central and close to shops. The owners and staff were amazing and extremely friendly and helpful. We were well looked after by Gogo, who served an excellent breakfast during our stay. Cornerstone Manor is highly recommended.

An excellent choice if you want to be near Rhodes university for a couple of days. Clean, comfortable rooms with beautiful ambiance. Very friendly and warm caretaker and the owner. Excellent breakfast! You can cook your meal in the kitchen if you are too lazy to go to a restaurant. One couldn't ask for more.

We had a very pleasant stay, with great service and a lovely breakfast served each morning. The situation to where we had to be, was excellent. The Wi-Fi was however an major issue and very erratic when it did operate.

I travel to Grahamstown as my daughter schools there. I’m so delighted I found Cornerstone Manor. It is a welcoming, safe and lovely home away from home. The breakfast is incredibly delicious and abundant! Thank you so very much Cheryl & Gogo
