Normally I stay here when I pass through Bloemfontein. It never disappoints. Rooms are spacious and modern, bed very comfortable. Breakfast is always amazing. As a golfer myself the golf theme throughout the place is really cool. Must stay in Bloemfontein!

We had a wonderful stay at The Golf Lodge. It is centrally situated and so easy to find after a long journey. The rooms are warm, comfortable with all the luxuries. Big bedroom, big bathroom, quiet, could not have asked for more. We will most certainly be back and would not hesitate to recommend the lodge.

I stayed here about 1 week ago and it was okay. The breakfast really sucks as they do not cater much and do not cater for people who do not eat pork and beef.

The golf lodge is situated centrally and close to a variety of restaurants and shops. Secure parking, a comfortable clean room and delicious cooked breakfast made for a pleasant stay whilst stopping over in Bloemfontein.

We always stay at the Golf Lodge when we overnight in Bloemfontein. It's easy access to the main highway and very close to restaurants and other amenities. The swimming pool is a welcome in the heat of summer!

It is really difficult to write a review of this hotel without gushing and sounding insincere. The Gold Lodge is a lovely place to stay and it's not far from the N1.

What a wonderful surprise we had when we stayed at the Golf Lodge! Beautiful, spacious rooms, large bathroom with bath and shower.

The setting was very good for our overnight stay. The family room could do with a bigger bathroom. Good breakfast and friendly staff. We were provided with adequate self catering facilities and the kids loved the pool during a rather hot day.
