We had a fantastic stay at A Stones Throw - it's our favourite place to visit when we visit our daughters in Grahamstown. The cabins are very comfy and well appointed and we always feel very welcome. Definitely a worthwhile place to stay!

We had a great stay at this accommodation. We received friendly service from host Susanne and enjoyed that the space being open and sepate area to sleep separately should guests prefer. Private, comfortable and cozy.

Breathtaking views. Sometimes I forgot that I'm in Grahamstown. My room had beautiful scenic views and the staff were happy to assist in any way possible. This was the best place to relax and rest after a hardworking day.
