"Walking into Evelyn House is like stepping into past and future at the same time – the long-gone age of Victorian lavish luxury, combining with consummate service and the cutting edge modernity that the discerning traveller deserves.
Built in the 1820s, Evelyn House embodies the gracious largesse, graceful grandeur and elegant stateliness of a bygone golden era – from the plush splendour of its public lounge and dining area, to the sumptuous luxuriousness and deluxe hospitality of its bedrooms, and the sophisticated style of its discreet, intimate boardroom, which is ideal of high-level meetings and indabas.
Indeed, this genteel luxuriousness – set in a tranquil historical garden with secure parking – quietly belies the fact that the buzz of the best of Grahamstown is literally at your doorstep. Everything great about the “city of saints is simply a short walk away – from Rhodes University, to advocates’ suites and the Grahamstown High Court, magnificent museums, the resplendent botanical gardens, one of a handful of camera obscuras in the world, some of the most well preserved Victorian architecture on Earth; to shopping, dining and live entertainment and all significant business and local, provincial and government offices and facilities.
Ultimately, Evelyn House gloriously entwines 19th century antique enchantment, with classic style and fantastic 21st century facilities, where the finer things in life feel both timeless and fabulous!
