I have stayed here overnight twice, having to go to the University early the next morning. For this purpose the hotel is ideal, as it is literally opposite the main gate and you could actually walk over to the UFS, should you want to. The rooms are typical hotel standard, nothing wow, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is really good, with a wide spread of hot and cold, and meat and vegetarian options. Staff has always been very helpful and I like the fact that there is plenty of parking to choose from. As it is located just off Nelson Mandela Drive, it s very easily accessed from the N1 highway and would make a good stopover if you simply cannot drive any further along the road to Cape Town/Johannesburg.
