                                                  The place was nice and clean. All the photo’s and old movies on the big screen, all a memory of what was once. Loved the horse, donkey and pig.

                                                  Beautiful foyer and restaurant area, great breskfast, attentive restaurant staff. A great place to stay over.

                                                  Never judge a book by its cover and this is true here. Everything will exceed your expectations on every level. Truly loved our one night stay over.

                                                  We loved the hospitality, vibe in the pub ( the resident donkey is of course a contributing factor) as well as the food. Will recommend to our friends.

                                                  Greenlantern has become my stopover between Bloemfontein and our anual sea holiday. We are campers or caravaners. A breakfast buffet on the morning of departure allows me anough time to drive to out destination, set up camp and start our holiday immediately. Beds are comfortable, clean rooms and linen. Friedly and welcoming staff. Greenlantern has inherited us as regulars. We are currently on holiday and if we decide that on the day of return we are going to reach home in the dark. We will definaty consider a sleepover again
