  • Family with children

    The friendly helpful staff who I found very obliging.The rooms were comfortable,but I would have preferred a shower.

    The bathroom had no shower.

  • Single

    Very clean, and value for money. Up to star standard criteria.

    African Lodge Bloemfontein display four stars under their name. This is unfortunately very misleading as there is nothing four star about it! The attention to detail has been lacking and you get the feeling they have just "thrown" these rooms together. It is mentioned on the website that all the rooms have Plasma TV'S. The room I stayed in did not and neither did the room of a colleague. My normal tv stood on the counter in the kitchenette. I could not see the tv from my bed and I virtually had to lay on the floor next to the bed to watch it! The photographs on their website are stunning and its such a pity that in reality its not what you see.

  • Older travelers

    I felt that the hotel was not a 4 star rating. I was disappointed with the size of our room and bathroom. It certainly looked far nicer on the internet than in reality. I would have thought there would be a hair dryer and electric blanket with a four star rating. Overall I was disappointed. Was certainly not a deluxe room!

  • Family with children

    The best part was the comfort. We were only there for 1 night, but it was really worth it.

  • Older travelers

    Easy access.

    That little bathroom is just Too Small.

  • Older travelers

    There was nothing we liked about the Lodge. We cancelled the booking after we entered the room and realized that is is not on standard.

    We were very dissappointed and cancelled the booking after we walked into the room. This Lodge is not on 4 star standard.

  • Single

    Great hospitality, very accommodating, friendly and helpfull staff. Thanks for the great breakfast on a last minute booking. Warm atmosphere and decor. We were even phoned while on the road due to a very chilly Bloemfontein and were asked at what time the staff should prepare the elctrical blanket for warm-up. Very good location directly opp the University of the Free-State we never needed to use our vehicle as we only had to cross the road. Very safe parking.

  • Family with children

    Bedding; Gate access; Family & Self-Catering room; Rates; Pool access;

    Breakfasts is not buffet as promised, serving same menu daily, breakfast plate empty with no variety. Breakfast service is slow, waiting long to be served. Bath & Shower Hot water runs out. Junior staff not well trained & equiped to deal with visitors' enquiries. Towels not sufficient in the rooms. Rooms floor is cold. No sufficient African Decor as displayed on the website. No enough sofas to sit in the rooms, can only sit on bed to watch TV.

  • Single

    everything was according the price

    I didn't like the noise of someone cleaning outside at 7 am

  • Family with children

    great african ambience; roooratedm waqs very neat and well dec

    i stayed in the family room - the bathroom door is thin and has a huge gap at the bottom hence limiting your privacy (especially if there are other people with you.

  • Single

    All I can say is wow!!!! This was a really amazing stay. I travel alot and from all lthe guest houses, b&b, Hotels etc in Bloemfontein I really enjoyed staying at this one the most. I've already made my Booking with African Lodge for twice a week for the next eight months. The food provided was delight, and the staff is really well trained, friendly and helpfull. Thanks African Lodge for making my stay pleasant. Finally I found the right place to stay in all of Bloemfontein.

    This was the best stay i ever had, i arrived like 11H30 in at night and left again at 04H30 in the morning. I couldn't believe the excellent service i recieved that time of night and morning. The room was clean , spacious and the carpets made it warm and very african looking. The en-suite bathroom was very clean and spacious and it could do almost anything in there. The private entrance to my room made ir very easy to off laod and load all my luggage, although one off the staff members did it for me. I'd really go there again, ever passing Bloemfontein.

  • Family with children

    Even though I stayed 1 night, the self catering apartment was comfortable and iyt was well situated close to the CBD and all amenities.

    Since I was accomodated in the self catering unit, I think the bathroom's location is bad,right next to the kitchen and no door for the toilet makes it even worse, they need to relook at this because it looks incomplete.

  • Couple

    The room was very small, and the tv was the smallest ever seen by man - I didn't know they made them that small. The carpets were off cuts - bad ones at that. The bath had hot water only, and the toilert flushed only when it felt like it.
