Reviewed October 28, 2011

This hotel is just off one of one of the main roads from the highway into Bloemfontein, so getting in and out of the city from the hotel is a pleasure. Major shopping malls are within 15 min drive from the Hotel. The staff are outstanding and so are the rooms and food – you will not make a mistake to stay here.

Room Tip: All the rooma are excellent

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. There is outside parking with a security man facing a very busy loud main road. There was no staff at reception when we arrived but the doorman offered us a refreshing arrival drink. When the reception staff finally arrived we were given our room key. We were looking forward to the 5 star experience and when our door was opened we were just shocked. The room was the size of a matchbox. It was loud and there were not enough plugs in the room to plug in the fridge which only had water in it and no mini bar. The fridge was plugged out when we arrived and there were towels for only one person. This room was clearly for a single person with no luggage. The bathroom shower pressure was so strong that the entire bathroom got soaked which was odd. Normally one would dream of great shower pressue but not to this extreme. We had a balcony but it was shared with the next room so you couldn't really sit there in privacy. We went for dinner and it was a buffet style cooked so early in advance that it was old by dinner time. There was no chef available and no restaurant management. The waiter was a friendly chap. We asked where the bar was and that is actually shared with the restaurant with a few stools and no staff. Breakfast the next morning nobody could really confirm what time breakfast was at the hotel book in the room said a different time to the staff. The breakfast was very mediocre. You had to more or less beg for a cup of tea or coffee. The worst experience of all was when the chef finally appeared and was monitoring the table cloths and that they were not smooth enough on the table and shouting at the femalestaff in public. He should have focused more on his food cooking than table cloth monitoring. This was completely inappropriate and his behaviour was unacceptable for a 5 star boutique hotel. On our second night after asking for towels we now got no towels in our room. After calling reception the response was we will drop some up when we get a chance only after I told them I was dripping wet did they finally come up. I don't recommend this hotel and they could seriously do with a window cleaner

We stayed 5 nights at Anta Boga for a family event. The hotel is very modern; rooms clean and comfortable; breakfasts excellent and staff courteous throughout.
Standard room has plasma TV (but no international news channel when we were there); small drinks cooler; good selection of tea/coffee making; modern bathroom.
All in all a good city centre hotel and good value for money.
