A beautiful historic house in the heart of Grahamstown. We loved our stay, it was very comfortable and our bed and linen was very luxurious. The breakfasts were delicious and Natalie and the staff helpful and friendly. The only thing is they need to make provisions for loadshedding. Otherwise perfect and we will be back!

Had the best stay at this wonderful guest house and the owner was most accommodating and we were served the most scrumptious breakfast with beautiful spread and many options. I would highly recommend this place as your next choice when visiting the area.

Lovely quiet place with helpful and sweet host. Thanks thanks and, why 200 characters? when the whole thing can be described simply and with relatively few words. Again it's a nice place to visit if you want to spend the night in (Grahams Town) have forgotten the new name the town has been given...

Our stay at St Aidens was very pleasant. It was a particularly hot time, but the rooms were lovely and cool and breezy. Staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly.The location of St Aidens to town and the local schools is fantastic ,it is a very easy stroll to St Andrews. Would have been perfect if the swimming pool had been usable.....but that is the joys of loadshedding. Would definitely recommend St Aidens.

This has been one of the most fabulous guesthouses I’ve ever stayed in. Natalie and staff, you’ve made our stay incredibly memorable. Nothing was ever too much trouble, and we were a demanding bunch! Accommodation was so comfortable, breakfast spectacular - especially the croissants! If you’re anywhere near/in Grahamstown, this is the place to stay, the jewel of the Eastern Cape.

Brisbane, Australia6 contributions1 helpful vote
What started off a nightmare of a booking with the previous owner turned around to be one of the most pleasant trips I've had to date. Cheryl - the new owner - took the time to fix the rudeness of the previous owner and respond in detail to my questions and re-assure me that my booking was confirmed. On arrival I wasn't able to meet Cheryl as she'd just experienced a loss in the family but Caroline jumped in and took charge and attended to every little detail, making my stay a pleasurable one. St Aidans is now in good hands with an experienced host who has experience in at least two other very high quality guest houses in Grahamstown and I highly recommend any of these to prospective guests. St Aidan's was perfectly situated for the event I was attending and the breakfasts were just awesome.

Ideal base for Grahamstown especially for the schools as walking distance to everything. Amazing host and manager and had everything we needed. The rooms have aircon and are carpeted but spacious so are warm in winter which was an added bonus as it was extremely cold when we were there.
