I do contract work on the mines around Welkom and regularly stay at Villa Siesta. The rooms are clean, I am not a fan of the carpeting but it's alright. There is aircon in most (if not every) room (Welkom is hot). There is usually a bath and shower while bathrooms are sometimes open plan. Be warned that the rooms do differ from one another. There is a mini fridge and kettle etc. I stay there regularly and even accidentally melted a microwave one day but the staff was very forgiving (within reason). They are friendly and accommodating. The WiFi is good, there is dstv and you can ask for a room with a desk if you need. The rooms do not have sliding security gates but the complexes are gated. The dinners are also well worth it.
Stayed here for one night with 4 other team members en route from bloemfontein to jhb Managed to get the "honeymoon" room which was large,spacious and came with lovely shower and corner bath with jets After a long day at work in bloemfontein and subsequent drive the lodge was welcomed The team just wanted take out and the hosts were lovely in letting us order in and use the dining room and cutlery,plates etc Having not had a restful the night previous the bed here was soft and allowed me to get some good shut eye with another long drive due the following day. Being Muslim they were informed ahead and catered a breakfast just for me and this was definitely a thumbs up. All in all...safe,quiet location and welcoming hosts made this stopover enjoyable and next time we are passing through we will definitely recommend to the company to use …
Not at all like photos on page. Very old and dirty. Mould in shower and shower head. Dusty carpets, lampshades, bedding. Luckily we had our own pillows. Feather pillows and 3 of us allergic to feather.......but no person at premises to assist. Towels were lovely 👍Pool dirty.
This facility is on the border of Welkom CBD, yet it feels as if you are miles away from any town or city. Rooms are well laid out and spacious. The mere fact that you can eat braaivleis every night alone, is a bonus!
They have very comfortable beds CLOUD NINE to be specific. Bernice is the best hostess ever. Will definitely be going back. Affordable and very safe .With a bar and supper on request . The mall and casinos are close by
