Accommodation in beautiful Bloemfontein

You don’t need a long stay to know whether accommodation is good or bad. Here’s a quick comparison of two self-catering units in Bloemfontein, the city of roses, located in South Africa’s
Free State province.

Rosedene Guesthouse


Service levels: Room for improvement. Scroll for more.
Clean, tidy. Microwave, no oven.
Comfortable bed + sleeper couch more suited to a child.
Flat screen TV with DSTV.
Table and seating outside room.
Close to city centre and Mimosa Mall.

The communication from Rosedene could have been better. We landed before 8am and asked the host if we could check in a bit earlier. They said they would let us know once the room was ready, but we never heard back from them. We eventually arrived at Rosedene and checked in at 2pm (after spending hours in the mall). I feel it’s okay when hosts are unable to accommodate earlier check-ins, but they should let guests know instead of simply ignoring them.

Shellcliff Self-Catering Room

Service levels: Excellent. Accommodating hostess.
Clean, tidy. Microwave, no oven.
Comfortable bed.
Flat screen TV with Netflix.
Table and seating outside room.
Beautiful garden.
Lovely area but will need a car to get
around.

Celeste’s place is lovely and clean and situated in a beautiful part of Bloemfontein. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, kettle, sufficient cutlery and crockery, cleaning supplies and a microwave. As the host she is very welcoming and accommodating, and even attended to our special request. I will definitely stay at Shellcliff again, when in Bloem.
