Really enjoyed my stay and service was good. Shops and restaurants 2 minutes down the road which is really convenient. It's also located in a safe neighbourhood and easy to find. Reasonably priced as well.

lovely hosts with good info on the area, comfortable room, very nice patio to sit out on. Very close to the art museum and not far from the centre. Would definitely recommend this to visitors to Bloemfontein.

Marian is a lovely host and she made us feel welcome. The rooms are neatly decorated, always clean and tidy. She made sure we stayed warm with an electric heater and electric blankets to keep us comfortable in icy Bloemfontein. Great stay!

Found Marian and her husband extremely warm and hospitable. Everything in the room was immaculate, and breakfast was superb. Marian's home made rusks are the best we've ever tasted! Parking is secure and convenient and we'd have no hesitation in booking again at some future date.
