The overall stay was perfect besides the minor issue caused by the night shift employee of the Lodge the gentleman, he was arrogant and disrespectful. Lacking skills to engage guests. That was so disappointing, however credit must be given to the day shift employee the lady for great service

We booked online. Found it easy to contact the lodge and amend our booking. Secure parking, which is so important, and easy to get back on to the N1. We ordered Uber eats and delivery was hassle-free.

Hi there Brassnavy! Thank you for your kind review and for your constructive response. :) We've had some extreme weather (-8C) recently which led to a burst pipe - which was completely unforeseen - we had it repaired immediately and double insulated and trust that there should be no further issues. We apologize that it happened whilst you were visiting us, this is certainly not something we would wish to happen at any time, to any of our guests. Bloemfontein does have a tendency to reach extremely low temperatures in winter and we try our best to manage all situations - sometimes the unpredictable happens. We hope to see you again, hopefully in summer :) When you can enjoy our lovely pool and it won't be freezing cold :) Keep safe! Kind regards,

Totally enjoyed everything about this home away from home. I could manage business meetings with my clients. Would be lovely if they could have screen in the lounge to conduct a business presentation. They garden area made it easy for me to host a few business clients to a lunch. Will definitely visit this place again and refer friends.

Hi Sonia! Thank you so much for your great review! We normally don't host meetings or events and as such, don't offer this is a paid service, as we don't have a conference venue. We are glad however that the garden area suited your needs. If given prior notice of these types of requests, we can try and accommodate you with a screen in the future :) We hope you visit us again when you're in town
