We stayed at B&B @ Bloem while in town for my cousin's wedding. It was 38 degrees, which is normal for Bloem in the summer, and there is only a ceiling fan with no air con. While the bed was comfortable enough, the apartment is quite run down. The fridge didn't keep our water and food cold, and the bathroom presents like a hospice. Marthinus is very friendly but the accommodation is very basic. Unfortunately, we will not stay here again.
The host is very friendly and helpful but I am sorry the room did not feel fresh and clean. Couch pillow looked like somebody sat on it just before I came in, pillow was out much more than the other. The room bedding needs an upgrade. You hear all the noise from your neighbors. We did not rest well. I am sorry but this was my experience.
My wife and I stayed at B&B Bloem for the weekend in the Cabrierre room. Its difficult to review - there's good and bad points: Pros: - The host was very welcoming; - Neat, secure place with secure parking; - Excellent location; - Lovely theme and colours, vintage; - The décor and vintage look was excellent; - Nice history to the place with a travellers book in the room; - Peaceful and serene with a lovely garden setting; - Offers breakfast (halaal included - It would, however, be nice if it could be externally certified and this may remove doubt and attract more guests since accommodation with halaal food is difficult to get in Bloemfontein); - The room had a heater, blankets and an electric blanket which was perfect for the cold night; - Bed was comfortable. At 1st glance, we were happy with the style and the above Pros. After being there for a while though, the following Cons were noted: - Not the cleanest of places. - The microwave had food particles in it and the kitchen was not very clean; - Although having a kitchen, microwave, kettle and a kitchen unit, there were limited dishes. Only 2 mugs and spoons, no plates, saucers, etc.; - Refreshments were VERY limited with literally only 2 teabags (5 roses tea, no other option, i.e. rooibos, etc.), 1 coffee creamer sachet, few sugar and coffee sachets and no milk sachets/units; - The bathroom was clean with towels and shower gel provided. No hand soap/sanitizer was provided and the air-freshener was almost empty; - The rugs were filthy. It needs a good wash; - The vintage look was lovely but it seems that it masks the dirt. For example, the couch needs to be washed. It seems it has been kept in an old dirty state for the look but that not need be the case; - They offer breakfast but we did not partake for the reason that it is only offered between 6 and 8am...on a Sunday. Not worth waking up that early on a Sunday morning to eat, rather relax, sleep and eat at nearby places. - The walls are not sound proof so can easily hear neighbouring units. Fortunately the neighbours were not rowdy. It was a good experience and we thank Marthinus. It is, however, difficult to rate with the negative aspects but I'm sure these issues can be attended to.…
This b&b is a very antique type of accommodation, which we loved. I slept like a baby with the electric blanket and comfortable bed. The staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. Only thing not working was the wifi. I will definitely go back to this much affordable b&b.
Excellent customer care. Not a five star but excellent value for money. The owner and staff were friendly and accomdating of all needs required. I would recommend anyone to stay there and would go back there.
