    It was a lovely stay-over just outside of Grahamstown. Just what we needed to relax. Magnificent sunset. Private. Clean & Fresh. Friendly & warm reception. Attention to every detail makes it extra special.

    We always enjoy staying at A Stone’s Throw - the service is excellent, non-intrusive and the facilities are more than adequate! A great location for further exploration in the local area and further. Perhaps a playground for the little ones would be great.More
