Nestled in a valley outside Grahamstown, facing the rock face of the Howisons Poort Mountain stands the Stone Crescent Hotel which gets its name from a combination of the prehistoric stone tools that peppered the area and the rock crescents that face it.<br /><br />The hotel boasts 29 rooms; we have six Thatched Bungalows, four Deluxe Rooms, four Self-catering Flats, 11 Double Standard Rooms and four Single Standard Rooms. There is a conference centre, restaurant and recreational facilities situated on 105 hectares with game, flora and fauna. The Stone Crescent hotel is a place of relaxation for the local community and offers the visitors a tranquil haven to rest or work from.<br /><br />Situated right on the doorstep of the N2 Highway to Port Elizabeth and just 8 km outside the historical town of Grahamstown, the hotel offers an ideal stopover for travellers, a good hideaway for the business person visiting Grahamstown, and the perfect place for tourists visiting the various game reserves synonymous with the Eastern Cape such as the Pumba Game Reserve and the Addo Elephant Park.

"The most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at - The room stank, the bed stank. The toilet was broken, the TV was broken, the shower was broken, the bath was brown - I have photos of it all. The floor was dirty. Found a slug in the bed. Spoke to the receptionist and he couldnt help, he told us the manager wasnt available to help either."

"Dear, if I were you I'd remove Stone Crescent of my web. This is definitely not a 3 Star "hotel". First off, the services that they claimed to provide were non-existent. Like the free wi-fi, gym, clean bathroom, friendly staff etc. This place is a scam, we had to wash with ice cold water for four days, which resulted in half of the group catch the flu bug. Most of the rooms didn't have electricity. And the rooms that did have electricity had loose electrical wires hanging in plain sight which was a death trap. Most of their showers seemed like they were assembled my a group of toddlers who were playing with mud and broken tiles. Three of the 10 rooms I booked didn't have keys to lock the doors, which resulted in some of my friends losing their personal belongs including money. This place is not a 1 Star hotel, not even a 3 Star hotel."
