Check in was hassle free - amendments to booking were done without any hassle or penalty. The room was very clean and I did have a good nights rest - I was extremely tired. Wifi connection was very good. Access was also very good as I could let myself in and out at will. The only issue that I had was that the area was very hot and the room for sometime before dark was very hot and there was no fan or aircon in the room. I will definately go back and stay there when I am back in Grahamstowm.

Excellent location on the main street close to shops restaurants and the university. Welcoming and professional staff who responded positively to requests and provided information. Relaxing lounge area. Thorough housekeeping. The owners were frequently on hand went out of their way to assist even providing a lift after hours to the bus station. Service indeed.

I'd stay there again. The place was spotless and had helpful staff and secure off-street parking in a central location, close to restaurants.

One point of concern was the floor in the shower. Mine was very steep at the sides with an ill-positioned drain in the middle deep enough to be like a hole and this made slipping a very real risk. Easy enough to remedy, though. I hope they do.

Great place to explore this part of the city. It is also very easy to connect this area with the city center. Plenty of restaurants and food places around. Safe place and ideal set up for staying for a few days.

Was in town for the festival. Great location meant I could walk everywhere. Comfortable room, tasty warm breakfast to order, and very secure parking were the highlights of the property along with a friendly and helpful staff. I'd stay again. Only thing I change would be to book a room with a shower, not a tub.

137 High Street is an excellent guest house for an overnight in Grahamstown SA. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was good. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Security is excellent. Location excellent - a short walk to numerous good eating and refreshment options.

Overall good. For the price we [aid, one would expect better coffee in rooms and lounge. Pity that the bar was limited to the few drinks in the lounge / dining room fridge. After a long travel one would like a nice cold drink

Browns located on the top end of town is ideally located to the few decent restaurants in town. The service is good and the owner is super helpful and easy going. The rooms are nice and large with comfortable beds. Bathrooms a little small but that didnt worry us. The restaurant downstairs in cozy and lively when we were there. They offer secure parking. Try the carrot cake!!!

They've got some really good local craft beer at the bar. And I absolutely loved the king size bed, it was really comfortable. The food was also pretty good. The location is very central and you can walk to almost all the shops and university in a few minutes.

Looking for somewhere to eat? Try Browns' in High Street. Delicious food, warm cosy fire on cold nights and a waitress named Kirsten who is not your average waitress!
Fast becoming our favorite place to dine
