We had a very good experience. The best Guest House that we've been to in SA, thus far. Everything was exquisite. We would have preferred the bathroom & bedroom wasn't open plan. Thank You

The location of the venue is the perfect gateaway from the busy city of Bloemfontein whilst still in the city close to major shops and malls. The view is amazing and the set is just great. With the friendly service I know where to stay when I'm in Bloem.
