We would highly recommend this guest house. It is conveniently situated for access to all the Art Festival locations, some within walking distance. The owners are very friendly and accommodated all our needs. The rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable and warm even through really cold winter nights. We enjoyed the presence of the lovely pets that... More

Having stayed at Henri House on a number of occasions through the years with our children at school in Grahamstown, we would certainly recommend this lovely B&B. The guest rooms are more like mini-apartments with plenty of space to cater for family! It is very centrally located with the schools and shops within a 5 minute drive. Andrew is a... More

The organisation I work for is a NPO and we received a reduced rate. This establishment is homely and offers self catering and b&b. I loved the space in the apartment I was in and it almost felt like I was home. I will definitely stay at Henri House whenever I am in Grahamstown again.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The house and garden are nice. The neighborhood is quite. With the car, it's not even 5 minutes to the center of town, however, it might be a tad far if you plan to stay there without a car for a longer period. The host was very welcoming and helpful. We had... More

We have stayed at Henri House each time we come to the Arts Festival and will continue to do so in the future. it's quiet, secure with a fast geyser that gives hot water, this was important because it was cold outside. The heating inside kept us warm Paul and Terry

We stayed at Henri House for two nights and it will definitely be my first choice of accommodation in Grahamstown from now onwards. Lovely spacious and comfortable rooms opening onto a beautiful garden. We loved our time there and look forward to returning.

I had the pleasure to stay at Henri House this Easter Weekend, to attend my friend's wedding. Clean, comfortable and friendly hospitality. The accommodation is really comfortable and I love the fact that it is more like a spacious self-catering flat than just a "Bed and Breakfast" bedroom. I will definitely return if I ever have the opportunity to visit... More

“The rooms are far more like appartments than just a Bed and Bathrooom. Very comfortable indeed! Don't know about the swimming pool however, I cannot "unrate" the option as per Trip Advisor's list.”
