I stayed in this guesthouse from the 08 – 11/04/2023 on business. This was the first time and what a lovely place to stay. The reception area was beautiful decorated and the staff was very friendly. I stayed in Room 2 of the two rooms that was booked for the company. I had my own kitchen and lounge which included Coffee and tea making facilities and was greeted with a complement Old Brown cherry and chocolates in the room. A stocked bar fridge is available if you needed it.
The linen and towels are white and crisp. There is an aircon in the room, and electric blankets on the beds for the winter. Breakfast was included in the rate, and once again we received good food and friendly staff. The guesthouse does provide a restaurant for dinner, but you need to book in advance. I will definitely stay here again and ask for the same room.

I have to stay over in the Welkom quite often for work, and it is always a pleasure to stay at Au Jardin. From the provisions in the rooms, to the swimming pool and the fish pond, you always feel welcome. Big rooms and ample spaced bathrooms, with neat and clean facilities, it really stands out. And your always welcomed with a nice chocolate and some sherry. And a big plus is the free WiFi access on site, especially if you do not have 3G for your laptop. Breakfasts are very good with variety every day of the week. Safe and secure parking overnight and some rooms have jacuzzis.

When I checked in the lady behind the reception desk quoted me a price that I said was very expensive for 1 person but under the circumstances I accepted and paid via debit card. Whilst I was parking my vehicle the reception lady realised that she had overcharged me by R250 and told to my daughter to relay to me that I could 'help myself to everything in the mini bar' as compensation. During the night I had 2 soft drinks from the mini bar and when I checked out the next morning the same lady asked me if I had consumed anything from the mini bar. I replied that I had had two drinks whereby she said 'that I can go back and take anything I want from the mini bar as compensation' for the overcharge. I found this absolutely bizarre and replied that I would not accept her proposal. I subsequently left, without the offer of a refund, and am astounded that this unethical behavior takes place in an establishment that has a good reputation. Clearly this staff member requires more training.

I am on business in the Freestate often and have stayed at about 6 different places in Welkom and found this one to be the best. Clean rooms and the breakfast is fantastic. Photos of Thabo Mbeki and the owner appears on the walls, so appears like it has catered for high profile people. All the rooms have flat screen TV's, DSTV and bar fridges.

If I had to point out a negative, it would only be the location of the Hotel. It is situated in Riebeeckstad which is about 10km from town.

I recently visited the Free State and was referred by a friend to Au Jardin Guesthouse for my weekend's accommodation. In a lovely reception area I was received by friendly staff and checked in within minutes. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, and in my opinion fit for a king! I had a wonderful stay and would choose Au Jardin Guesthouse a hundred times more. Thanks to the staff for making it the most pleasant of stays. See you next time!

As Jardin has a very friendly, homely feel. The staff are always smiling. The room is large and equipped with a minibar at reasonable prices. They also provide coffee station with complimentary rusks, and sherry and chocolates. There is a candle and matches in the room, and fresh flowers. The finishes are superb. There is safe parking for your car. The swimming pool area is beautiful.

When we arrived at 14:00 on a Saturday it seemed like the place was closed. We phoned the number at the gate to let them know we have arrived. It took them ten minutes to get to the guesthouse. This was a bit dissapointing. After we checked in we were shown to our rooms which was very stylfully decorated. If you want secure parking you pay R25 extra. Beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. The chocolates in the minibar fridge appeared old although the staff assured us they exchange them everytime. At six in the morning you can hear the noisy staff arriving and walking up and down the hallway past the rooms. At seven the radio is switched on in the dinning area which can be heard very cleary in the rooms close by. The breakfast was good. Overall we had a lovely stay at this guesthouse and might return again when in the area.

Lovely stay, excellent service and an all round 5/5 experience! The rooms are spacious and clean, the attention to detail is exemplary (bottle of complimentary sherry, bath salts etc...) and the breakfast offered plenty of variety and tasted great! Well done!
