                          We did not stay at Kestell Hotel. It was disgusting. The photo tells a whole other story. First of all, there was only a shower in the room. One has to go outside the room to the toilet. I tried to call, but your offices were closed already. I found 1000x better accommodation in Betlehem for a R100 more.I will also never book through Safari.com again.I am going to try and get a refund as well.Elsa Kotze

                          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!
