                      Truly a wonderful stay in a very well appointed quiet guest house overflowing with luxury. I will definitely stay here again, and must thank Linda for ensuring I had everything, and for preparing such wonderful breakfasts

                      When we arrived we were received by very friendly staff. The rooms are immaculate and beautiful. The breakfast was delicious the morning. All 5 people in my group staying there was very impressed and enjoyed it immensely. We all said that we will go back to Grahams Town just to stay here.

                      We were in Grahamstown for one night. St Aidan's guest house was a wonderful stopover. the rooms are clean, modern and very comfortable. the staff is excellent, well trained, informative and attentive. there is a beautiful patio where you can gaze at the wonderful view and listen to the birds sing! I would stay there again.
