Planning your trip: finding accommodation

Published on 23 May 2018

A wide range of accommodation and hospitality services are available in Grahamstown – from 5-star accommodation to more rustic backpacking and camping. Full details on hospitality providers registered with the Festival are available in our hospitality Travel & Stay 2018 brochure, which you can download here.

The hospitality booklet is not an exhaustive list as it only lists those hospitality providers and accommodation establishments that have provided information to the National Arts Festival – but please do consider supporting our advertisers.

All accommodation establishments are run independently of the Festival – we’re an arts festival, not travel agents! We assume no responsibility for errors or omissions, inaccurate information, or false advertising by the individuals, companies or organisations listed in our Travel & Stay Guide. Please do, however, let us know if you have a negative experience so that we can pass this info on to regulatory bodies for investigation. Email:

The Grahamstown Accommodation Guild grades and vouches for members of the guild. The GHG also runs a booking service at and can be contacted at
