I enjoyed the clean and large room.

We really enjoyed our time at Colonel Graham! Comfortable beds, clean linen, a swimming pool and nice little braai area. We felt safe and happy here and had lovely hosts 😊 The only thing we struggled with is that there were four of us and we felt a bit cramped in our cottage, otherwise it was a great experience!

This is a hidden gem in Grahamstown. Clean comfortable rooms, very friendly accommodating staff and delicious breakfast to top it off.

We have stayed at Colonel Graham several times and it gets better and better - very convenient position, spacey rooms, comfortable beds, good kitchen, safe parking, nice garden. Would recommend to everyone, either business or private travellers.
