Pleasant stay in a very nice unit.

Well designed and furnished unit, very clean and classy style. Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of security measures, so I felt quite safe, but it does reflect the general level of crime in the town.

Het by hul ander blyplek tuis gegaan.

Dit was baie veilig en stil area waar ons gebly het. Baie lekker eenheid. Veilige parkering. Naby winkels en skole. En volledige DStv.

One of the best places to stay in Grahamstown, always so comfortable and homely.

Bartholomew's Loft is definitely one of our favourite places to stay in Grahamstown. Our last stay was in the Courtyard Suite which, as always, was spacious, homely and with all the extra comforts one would need. The service is always great and I love that the building is located in the older area of Grahamstown, surrounded by settler cottages.

Perfect for our needs.

We were staying in Grahamstown for a child's sports tour, and the self-catering option was ideal. The beds were comfy, there was plenty of hot water, the kitchen was well-equipped. There was plenty of safe parking space for our (large) bakkie. I would definitely stay there again. The only minor complaint I have is that we could hear the neighbour's TV playing next door.

Netjies en veilig.

Ek dink absoluut niks van Grahamstad nie. Die toerisme-kantoor was gesluit op die vakansiedag. Die pamflet met inligting oor wat om te sien, dui aan dat die Observatorium oop is op Saterdae terwyl dit toe blykbaar geensins oop is op Saterdae nie. Dis uiters pateties! Die dame by die toeriste-kantoor sê hulle het dit ook al opgeneem met die owerhede maar dit val op dowe ore. Swak! Baie goeie diens. Kos was lekker en daar was 'n goeie verskeidenheid.

So homely

I was really impressed and surprised with the accommodation. What an absolute pleasure to have stayed at this establishment. It has such a character of it's own and the photographs do not do the establishment justice. It was a home from home and has all the creature comforts, the kids also enjoyed the homely feeling whilst taking a break from boarding school. I could cook and relax in the nice small garden which makes a big difference during a stay over. Thank you so much, see you soon again.

Pragtige ou geskiedkundige gebou met goeie fasiliteite en goed-toegeruste kombuisie. Gasvrye ontvangs selfs op Sondagaand. Aan te bevele.

Gasvrye en hartlike ontvangs op 'n stil Sondagaand te midde van die Feesseisoen. Alles was netjies en die plek is veilig. Ons het dit geniet om daar te oornag.

Huislik, privaat en baie netjies.

Dit was heerlik om selfs met 'n besigheidsbesoek 2 dae van wegbreek te ervaar in 'n ander wêreld. Dit het gevoel soos die Franse of Italiaanse platteland. Baie mooi!

Beautiful accommodation at very good price.

The Loft was beautiful and comfortable. Parking was a little difficult in one section. The only downside was the proximity to a sleazy part of Beaufort Street. However, a fantastic place otherwise, very safe and clean, and good value for money.
