Bainslodge Bloemfontein
We had a few places we could choose from in Bloemfontein but decided on this as the photos were stunning and it is close to get on highway to Kimberley. It was boiling hot when we arrived, cabin was closed up, no windows open so took almos 5 hours to actually cool down. When we went to the pool it was green and apparently they are still getting it ready for summer??? Really? If I had not paid yet Inwould have left and booked into another place. The photos were misleading.......

Ok place
The apartments smell of dampness and smoke, I think they should be very strict with their "no smoking in rooms policy" that is if they have one. The braai area outside the apartment was nice and the garden around the apartment clean

Not Happy
Very poor client service, asked for some fresh milk for coffee which took almost 4 hours to arrive. the water system is dangerous, got nasty burns on my back in the shower as it was unable to maintain a steady temperature. I'm sure places like this are required to have thermostatically controlled shower taps so it doesn't happen. will not recommend or stay there again....

When travelling one needs a two prong plug for charging cellphones - this facility was not available. There was no hanging place in the bathroom for towels etc
