5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Wonderful guest house in the quaint little town of Parys in the city center you will find Artlovers Guest house the rooms are amazing furnished with old victorian style and charm. Huge queen size bed to relax on after a day of shopping at all the antique shops in the town, where you will probably find a bargin or 2. Had supper at O's restuarant but we made a booking so we went a little earlier and had sundowner drink on the bar deck which is on the banks of the vaal river, great place to spend quality time. Back to artlovers, the rooms are amazing has its own coffie station in the rooms, the manageress was so helpful in everyway and was always there to help. The breakfast in the morning was exceptional well presented and served to us, will definatley be back for a stay,Thank you Artlovers Guest House

I have lived in Gauteng all my life and have never travelled to Parys. En-route to Bloemfontein I thought it would be nice to stop off at this little town i have heard so much of and stay the night. I searched Trip Advisor and Art Lovers Guesthouse came up as a good choice, I made my booking and 2 days later i checked in. Wow, what beautiful rooms - with only 6 rooms, you get to choose from the Angel room, Champagne etc .... each decorated in their unique style. I was totally blown away, what gorgeous decor and the next morning my breath was taken away by the amazing gardens.

The service received from the Manageress (can't remember her name) .... was wonderful, all staff were attentive and prompt with any requests. We sat outside and enjoyed a refreshing breakfast in the gardens - absolutely wonderful start to any day.

For dinner we went to Ruby's, wow wow wow..... absolutely gorgeous with the whole Marilyn Monroe/ Moulin Rouge feel.... the sole is the best i have ever had.

I leave Parys aching to return. Thank you

Art Lovers is my husband's and my favourite weekend getaway. We have been for our anniversary, for a friend's birthday and for quick getaways alone and with friends. Each time we go we are made to feel superspecial from our arrival to when we leave. The guesthouse is located pretty much in the middel of the town, so it's a great base from which to explore the shops ( often while the men play golf at the nearby course) and when we return the champagne that we request waits perfectly chilled in our room. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and exquisitively decorated. Although I hear that there are great resturants in Parys I cannot imagine that any can be better than Art Lovers resturant which ajoins the guesthouse, and that is where we always spend wonderful evenings, sipping wine whilst enjoying our meal. We are always sad when we have to leave and never leave it too long before we make our next booking!!
