Nice place with good breakfast, friendly staff and welcoming dogs. Overall a good experience but some issues with heavy footed guests who came back at odd hours and practically woke up the town. The floorboards are thin and you could hear almost every squeak.

Good morning, Thank you so much for your lovely review as well as your valuable advice. We all, including the pups enjoyed your visit:) Apologies for the noisy footsteps of the guests as well as the squeaky floorboards. We do love our beautiful wooded floorboards, but have decided to fit thick carperts to minimise the sound of the footsteps upstairs....

The room we stayed in - large and immaculately presented, very comfortable and welcoming.. The owner gave us a warm welcome and was extremely helpful in giving information and directions for places to eat. Breakfast was superb. and when we returned to our car, the windscreen had been thoughtfully and unexpectedly cleaned.! Great attention to detail

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...

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.

Our stay was excellent as usual. Just three little items you may want to check up on: the wall mirror was still not up by the time we departed; the TV was untuned and very grainy which made watching the SA vs Sri Lanka cricket, quite tricky; the granadilla yoghurt was off.

A truly super experience. Such good service. Staff very friendly. Made you feel so at home. I will recommend The White House to anyone traveling to Grahamstown. The four dogs and Rosie the cat are delightful.
