A White House Guest House
Ranked #5 of 43 Grahamstown B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2017

This is a big Guest House with good accommodation including a lovely pool area, a comfortable guest lounge up stairs. The bedrooms and bathroom were beautifully prepared and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we were made to feel most welcome. We had an early check out and were offered a packed breakfast and were able to creep out without disturbing anyone because of the excellent security doors and gates.

I loved staying at the White House Guest House. It is clean, smells fresh and feels very 'homey'.
I loved simple things like the fact that they soaps are branded, their shower gel smells great, the towels are fresh and not too thick/ big. They also have more DSTV channels available than most hotels, and good lighting options for the room. They have good breakfast options, with freshly made muffins. I loved every moment, and will definitely come back when I am in Grahamstown.

The service we received from Rala was outstanding. The only drawback to our full enjoyment of our stay, was that the insulation between our ceiling and the above floor boards was so inadequate, that we woke up at 4.30am each morning when the guests in the room above us decided to get up.
