We are back at A Stone's Throw after huge rebuild and renovations after the run-away fire that caused so much loss to us in July 2014 but we are thrilled that everything is back in operation with a few lovely new additions for the added comfort and enjoyment of our guests but we do still offer one of the best possible views over Grahamstown and our country garden setting is still just a 5 minute drive into the CBD of Grahamstown and the local attractions, we look forward to meeting visitors from far and wide and wish you a safe journey. Please note we do not offer meals on premises but will make recommendations for the lovely breakfast and coffee venues, restaurants and Bistros on request.
