We didn't have much to do at Bloemfontein. But staying at Franklin View Guesthouse made everything worth it. Your service was great and we had a delicious breakfast. I noticed that you had a ironing board and iron which most place don't keep in the room. Thank you Gustav.

My wife and I had a very peasant stay over on our way back to Durban. The facilities in the room were fantastic and the staff were  efficient. We would definitely stay here again.
