We were on the road from Durban to Cape Town and decided to sleep over in Grahamstown. Due to good co-operation and communication between the B&Bs, we got a cabin at A Stone's Throw, and boy, we were the lucky ones. The cabin has a single room and a mezzanine room, which our 2 boys (15 & 9) slept in. We were met by Edith who was the stand in manager while Suzanne was away. Edith is a treat, after a very long drive, the reception was fantastic. Things just seem to go along smoothly, no fuss, no mess. Everything is under control and well organised.
Breakfast was great, by the pool, more than enough for us(2 boys eat healthily) and then it was back on the road. Would LOVE to have stayed longer, it is such a peaceful place.
