This lodge is a good stop over rest in bloemfontein. We have stopped on many occasions and stayed over at this hospitable lodge. Breakfast is very good. Staff is excellent. A quiet once in the centre of south Africa

What an amazing place. It was clean and the staff were great. Exactly what you need when going on a long trip. The pool is so very welcome in the heat, bar stocked nicely which made for an enjoyable night over.

I have stayed there twice and my Redon for returning was the cleanliness of the place. I was comfortable and grateful for the beverages after a long day. My only complaint is that the breakfast needs some diversity.

I have stayed at Boa Vida when in Bloem since 2009. Olivia and her team are just not changing to anything but growing even stronger and stronger. The customer service is like a dream come true. Stay amazing and now I know you can never let any customer down

Olivier and her team and provide a welcoming atmosphere: friendly, always available, always unobtrusive. This is what is known in South Africa as a 'guest house', but is way up-market from the image that phrase might imply in U.K. This is not a big luxury place but a small, quiet, clean, house-size hotel. The rooms are truly excellent, the food...

I am not a Guesthouse person bus my partner and I were looking a place and since Bloem was buzzing this (MACUFE) weekend we thought there was no way we are going to get a place, called Boa Vida and booked in, and i must say their service was SUPERB! actually felt like a hotel experience. thank you so much...

Olivia made us feel very welcome indeed. One of us had an apartment-style room, with living-room and kitchen, which was great, so we could cook for ourselves if we wanted to. But Olivia provides lovely food, breakfast and evening meal. All the rooms are pleasant, comfortable, spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

A friend recommended Boa Vida where I stayed for 3 nights while attending a tournament. What a wonderful experience! Olivia is a superb caring hostess. My room was very comfortable – spacious and spotlessly clean and neat. I really appreciated the specially prepared hot breakfast.. Definitely one of the best B&B I've stayed in, in terms of hospitality, service, location...

i liked the modern touch, clean look, making excellent use of space, all smelling of luxury and quality. There is not much to write about view as the guest house is in the middle of a built up suburb. I was happy that the windows on one side of my room caught a view of grounds of Tempe Golf Course....
