Review of Graham Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Dec 2021
The Graham Hotel is a lovely place to stay, ideally located, beautifully presented, and the attached restaurant makes the whole experience a friendly and satisfying one.
Makhanda is a small town, so you can come and go to your room and the restaurant many times during the day and night without hassle. This makes it feel more like home.

We LOVE the food at Pothole & Donkey!! It’s such hearty yet classic food and the cocktails are divine! The whole vibe and decor and music is lovely and the staff really are the most friendly. Highly recommend! The hotel itself is stunning too and really comfortable!

The name captures the essence of the town...
The potholes are everywhere, the donkeys roam the town and outside the town the donkey carts collect wattle poles.
We needed air-conditioning, last week given it was one of the hotter days and decided to lunch here.
We were greeted at the door and shown to our table. Our waiter previously worked for a chain restaurant and took pride in his calling. Our meal was simple, herb focaccia with fresh tomato as an appetiser. My wife had prawns and I choose the pulled pork burger. Excellent! Wine list limited but we found a wine to complement our meal.
Must talk about the choice of music...stunning blues.
What a find.
