Thoroughly enjoyed my stay for the National Arts Festival. The room was clean and cozy with an electric blanket. The breakfast was delicious every morning, wished there was a bit more variety. Nonetheless, highly recommend.

I was in Makhanda (Grahamstown), for just a couple of nights on a private visit to see family. Jenny's was selcted as being convenient for my purposes and previously untested by any of us. I have no hesitation in recommending the comfort and value of Jenny's. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, breakfast spot on and my room spacious, pleasant and quiet. .

My wife and I got to spend 3 nights here. Food was great, room was great and staff was friendly! Bed was comfortable in a nice quiet area with electricity most of the time and water. I can recommend it!

The stay for my siblings was good. It was safe and not too far from the festival. You had to have a car because it's in the hill areas of Makhanda. There are also large potholes on the way to the accommodation which is abit inconvenient. The house itself is beautiful

My family and I had a great time even though our stay was short. The staff gave us excellent customer service, the only the critique I have is for you guys to provide your guest with unused bathroom goodies.

Really a great experience from check in to check out. The property is very clean and well presented. Full secure off-street parking is available. The staff are exceptionally friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The self-catering apartment has everything that you would require for your stay. WiFi is very good and food delivery services are available if required. I can genuinely recommend Jenny Guest House for your next trip to Makanda (Grahamstown)

I stayed at Jenny's Guest House during a flying visit to Grahamstown/Makhanda. The welcome was warm, and the facilities are top notch. Only one minor criticism - the WiFi details in the pamphlet supplied in the room was out of date.
