                          Old hotel steeped in history. Comfortable accommodation and home cooked dinner was most enjoyable

                          When arriving at the hotel at 20:30(driving all the way from Durban to the Free State), we were told that he had not even seen our booking and that his hotel was full and he couldn't accommodate us(Mother and daughter) . We then had tor drive all the way to Bethlehem to find some accommodation.What makes maters even worse is they/You have charged my credit card for the room. This was disgusting treatment/experience..

                          We enjoyed our stay at the hotel on our way through the Free State. We arrived late and left early, after receiving a breakfast that was made custom to some strange dietary requirements - thank you!

                          From the moment we arrived, we only had bad experiences. Reception reacted as if he was doing us a favour. Whole place is in state of neglet. Room smelled of old smoke and mould. Wall paint are full of damp blisters, carpets dirty, bathroom poor state. Toilet seat does not fit and moves/slips around. We gave place zero stars and will not recommend anyone to even consider staying there!

                          Kestell is a small place where there is not much going on. If one is from busy places like Gauteng the life there can be boring indeed.The place seems to be decent under the circumstances. The place in general appeared to be safe as far as crime is concerned.
