I am very impressed with this hotel. I was not feeling well at all and they let me check in at 12. I rested in my room. It was quiet and I felt refreshed after I woke up and ready to continue with my business. The staff was very welcoming and sympathetic. Keep it up.

Another good experience with this hotel. I don't travel often to Bloemfontein but when I do I really enjoy this hotel. What I like most about it is the fact that you don't have to go outside of the hotel in order to access the shopping mall. There is a door leading from the hotel to the mall.

The hotel was good for business. However, it's location will not make me choose it for holiday. It is well located for business . Rooms were excellent. The staff were very polite and always willing to serve.
