Have stayed at HH on about 6 occasions when visiting SA from Wales. The b&b has four large rooms in a very old Georgian house. It is very much a family affair with friendly owners and staff. It is situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Grahamstown and although breakfast is included we have opted to walk into town and eat at Harricots and amazing little restaurant with some interesting items on the breakfast menu.
Other guests have tended to be parents visiting their sons or daughters either at the private schools or university in Grahamstown so a very quiet place.
Prices are very reasonable too. I tried the plunge pool on my last visit which was much needed as it was very warm.
