    A treat to spend the night. Won't find better service and facilities in Bloemfontein; not to mention the fantastic view which is a scarce commodity in the Free State. TripAdvisor expects more words so here you go...

    I was fortunate enough to have one of the executive rooms which was HUGE to say the least. But the thing that struck me most about this venue was the amazing views out over Bloemfontein courtesy of its location.
