Groenvlei - Nice upmarket small holdings. Quiet and yet still close to all in Bloemfontein. Some nice wedding and function facilities in the area.
Good - Close to the Bloemfontein city, you have no choice but to enjoy your meals at the mall.
Weekender - Excellent.
Close to all, but not too close - An area left in time, but 10km from the city centre, and right next to the airport. I really do recommend it to anyone flying in/stopping over/or staying a week!
Not a very nice area - There are many nicer residential areas where one can stay for equivalent costs so I would not make this area a first or second choice (more of a last resort).
Good pizza - Nice bar (with smoking section) and exceptionally good pizza place at the Bays Village Centre (on Millner Road).
Close to Bloemfontein - Out of town, but close enough to the business centre and main shopping centres. Really enjoyed the steakhouse/grill near the Total.
Langenhoven Park - We arrived after dark and left at dawn but found our way with ease. There seems to be nice business centers as well as a Sasol filling station close by
Good - It's a quiet area, you feel at peace and relaxed.
Wayne & Michelle - Easy to find coming coming in from Durban - was convenient and looked like a nice suburb.
Lekker - Vermy die GPS aanwysings!! Die verblyf is baie, baie bekostigbaar. Ek moes 10 dae oorbly vir 'n werkswinkel . Die kombuis is volledig toegerus, skoon badkamers, koffie, tee, suiker, melk, ens.
Jy kan lekker buite sit en die silte geniet. Groot oop spasie wat baie gerieflik sal wees vir skoolkinders om oor te bly.
Garden Suburb - Lovely and quiet suburb
At home with Hemingway - I hunted here the beginning of March 2014 and loved this place. When my husband and I walked into the room, I felt like I had entered a Hemingway novel with the animal skin on the floor and the leather chairs. The plains game was plentiful (I shot 6 animals in 3 days); the people were friendly and attentive; and the food was great!! Adam knew where to find the animals I wanted and even made arrangements for me to go to other areas in order to increase my selection and hunting experience. He had good plans for tracking and obtaining the animals I requested. He also made sure I obtained top quality animals (no broken horns, etc.). This was my first experience hunting in Africa and it was a great one.
Fleurdal suburb - Appears to be old. Close to new shopping centre and close to Casino. A bit removed from (>10 km) from University and central town. Close to N1.
Hip&Happening - Westdene suburb, Bloemfontein, is an emerging business centre, complete with great restaurants and coffee shops on every block. Safe, attractive, and architecturally beautiful this is an appealing spot to choose when staying in Bloemfontein. A walk around the suburb before a leisurely dinner is a great way to end off a long day!
The wow factor - Firstly let me say that I have stayed in a number of dorms in my life, and yes this was just that, a dormitory. On my trip from Cape Town to Durban I decided to overnight at Ribblesdale Guest Farm, What a great decision on my part, I was well received into a very nice and clean place with excellent and comfortable bunk beds, bedding the whole complex was neat. I was alone in the place that could easily house quite a few people. If ever you need a CHEAP place to sleep over or spend a few days I would highly recommend that you book in at Ribblesdale Guest Farm. There are good kitchen facilities and the showers and other ablution facilities are very clean and a pleasure to use. Just one last thing if you coming from Cape Town’s side don’t follow the GPS, don’t take the first turnoff as indicated, you will end up on a 1 km gravel road, take the second turn off from the N1 at the garage and double back.
Good holiday destination - Good holiday destination
Central location in Bloemfontein - Outstanding mall and eating places. Central to stadium and university.
Dan Pienaar Bloem's upmarket suburb - Dan Pienaar has much to offer by way of shopping centres, restaurants and is in close proximity to the Botanical Gardens and the city centre as well as Naval Hill (with Mandela's statue). Highly recommended!
Perfect Place for leisure - The area is perfect especially for those who like peace and quietness. The amenities are nearby and visible. Directions are vivid and straightforward.
Bloemfotein Rocks! - Great weather, great people! Thank you Bloem we had fun, see you again next year!
Sought after northern suburb. - Walking distance to Preller Square shopping centre.
Universiats, Bloemfontein - Next to N1, close to most places in Bloemfontein, shops and filling station. Close to UFS and CUT
Dr Marthinus Jordaan
Fichardt Part - A quiet suburb, ideal for a restful evening but also close to all amenities.
A nice a calm place to see Bloemfontein from - It was a nice place, we went running on the hills, it was pretty enough, and really close from Bfn center.
Peaceful - Quite and peaceful neighbourhood. My first time in Bloemfontein and I had a pleasant stay. Just loved it.
Beautiful, quiet area - Beautiful upmarket area with LOADS of shops, restaurants
Good location. - Universitas is an easy to reach location and very central.
Impressions - Very neat and clean.
Loretta Magan on Universitas - Easy access from N1. Clean, quiet neighbourhood. Easy access to shopping malls and university.
Bloemfotein is clean! - Loved the relaxed mood and very clean streets!
Willows, Bloemfontein - Willows is a fairly quiet and safe area, good proximity to the city centre for malls and restaurants. Certainly not a picturesque suburb and caution should be exercised as in most inner city South African suburbs, but I have stayed in and visited much worse.
Universitas - I enjoy Universitas, it's close to everything, very quiet and has lots of trees and birdlife. I always enjoy staying in this area and can recommend it to others that need a sleep over. There are some overnight places that are not of standard but I always look at what other guests wrote on the accommodation review.
Excellent!! - Ferreira is near town, near the Windmill Casino, close to the N1 for a 1 night stay. Wonderful farm atmosphere!
Bainsvlei Review as a Destination - Bainsvlei according to my observation is a quiet yet friendly place. It is a crime free area which is also homely. However i would recommend that enough effort should be invested to upgrade the area to match the standard in town.
DESMOND MOLATLHEGI MFULOANE
passing through - Universitas is a lovely area - just a pity our accommmodation was not - but overall a good place to overnight is you have good accommodation - signage good - easy to find nice restaurants etc and nice quiet neighbourhood.
Excellent location - the best in Bloemfontein! It is of high to excellent quality, offers superb outdoor facilities, with a quiet farm-type atmosphere.
At the same time it is close to the city of Bloemfontein.
Not recomendable - Seems unsafe, not easy to find as a result of new and/or broken street names, not a nice area.
Beautiful suburb! - We loved the suburb with its many trees and stylish houses. The Loch Logan Waterfront was within easy access from there for restaurants and shopping.
Elsabe van der Merwe
Langenhoven Park - We have stayed at other B&B's in Langenhoven park and really like the area. It is conveniently placed near the N1 and is a neat suburb close to the Windmill Casino as well .............
Lynnete Van Zyl
Ernst & Eliabeth Breet from Potchefstroom - Langenhoven Park is close to the N1 and vital sites in the city of Bloemfontein, but offers a quiet and rural destination to comfortably overnight.

Business visit - Quiet, not as busy as Pretoria or Johannesburg.
Actually very nice. Would prefer more signboards to say where you can find a shopping centre or food dei

Ferreia is on top! - FERREIRA area are smallholdings situated on the south outskirts of BLOEMFONTEIN. Close to the N1 between JHB/CAPE TOWN/PE and East London/Aliwal North.
Few kilometres from all major city attractions- Bloemfonteins major yearly MACUFE festival a mere 13 kilometres away. (10-15minutes drive)
FERREIRA with its countrylike, rustic farm atmosphere where the traveler and tourist could find peace of mind in a quiet and safe area with recommendable guesthouses set amongst trees and tranquil beautiful gardens.
Several sight seeings- The Womens memorial & War Museum only 7,5km with the BFN showgrounds nearby.
bainsvlei plots - Bainsvlei is an area of plots. Really not a destination
nice and quiet at night. would not recommend it. would rather stay in town
Weekend Bliss - We had an Amazing weekend at Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.
It is a lovely 4 sleeper cottage and close enought to zoop in and out as we please.
I would really recomend this place to anyone that needs a place to stay in Bloem for a couple of days!
Remarkable Rayton - To whom it may concern, from a business point of view, we have been complete been amazed by the hospitality and super friendlyness that our technical teams have had the pleasure of experiencing whilst in Rayton. Our company specializes in the testing and inspection of pressure vessels, and have been in and out of Bloemfontein a lot over the past four months.
We made the brilliant choice to use the accomodation of Barristers Inn, and all i can say is ; we were blown away. Their facilites, out of this world service, rates and accomodation is wow ! i wish the owners all the best, and i will recommend all business men and women, as well as private people to book themselves in there. It is absolutely worth it !
well done barristers !
