“Bit Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

The price that I paid without Breakfast was not worth my stay...there is cheaper Bed/Breakfast places in Bloemfontein and I checked them out whilst I was there...very clean & good condition also includes breakfast

hospitality at southern sun is always at its best with friendly and warm-hearted staff. The place is good looking and access to amenities. The rooms are nice and spacious while the service is excellent.

The location of the hotel is perfect for an individual that enjoys quietness. It is a relevant venue for business meetings as well. Staff well mannered and high quality customer care. Although there were group of sport personnel that visited during my stay they were well behaved and made our stay enjoyable.

This is a great hotel to spend time in, either for business or pleasure. The facilities are well maintained and it is also within close proximity to all retail outlets.
I would recommend this hotel to all.

All our expectations were exceeded at the Tsogo Sun Bloemfontein. Excellent service from staff, comfortable and tastefully furnished accommodation and the finest cuisine at the both the hotel's adjacent restaurant and its breakfast dining venue. Our thanks to the staff for a memorable stay, Anton and Alida Casteleijn.

Travelling from Venda to Cape Town makes this particular hotel an excellent half way stop for me regardless of the time i check in from time to time. Sometimes I am in Bloem for business or a vacation and this hotel for me remains the best spot for one to have a good peaceful sleep.

Good rate, great breakfast, excellent people. The rooms are clean, the service was very good. The breakfast was a great selection, my children love the flapjacks with cream and honey. The pool is in excellent condition. Thank you very much Garden Court.
