Romford, United Kingdom

We stayed at A Little Guesthouse for 2 nights in November 2020. The owner and staff welcomed us and made us feel at home right from the start. Our luggage was even carried to our selfcatering unit, normally only get this at 5 star hotels. The units are very comfortable, especially the beds. You can find everything you need in the units, loved the plunger coffee and rusks. And if it is not in the unit, the staff will go the extra mile to help you with reasonable requests. The units are also equipped with the things you will need in case of a power cut. There were bbq facilities available near the unit. The guesthouse is located on the outskirts of Bloemfontein, which is an ideal location, close to everything, but a quiet and peaceful location. Will recommend this to everyone who needs a short term home in Bloemfontein and we will definitely visit again. Thank you for a great weekend!

The staff were friendly and assisted us with a smile. The host, Annalie also kept in contact with us via WApp. She gave all the important information on how to access the premises. Both units were nice and up to standard. There was an umbrella in each unit and we were spoiled with rusks as well. Unit 7 lookout on the garden and was very relaxing. Unit 1 was also made private so that people arriving cannot look into the unit. There were chickens and it feel so farming and relaxing. It is also close to restaurants if you want to order Mr delivery or even go and fetch it yourself or eat out. It is also close to the famous Bester Butchery. Here you can buy nice Biltong for the road.

Thanks for a nice overnight stay. I will recommend it for an overnight stay, you will be refreshed for the road the next morning.

We stayed in a very neat and comfortable unit. Our stay was very nice. The unit was private and the bed was comfortable. The property is safe with electric fencing, private parking and you get your own gate remote to come and go as you please. The unit included coffee, tea , milk and some rusks and is also fully equipped for self serve purposes. Although the WiFi was not working on the night we stayed there, I would still recommend anyone to stay over at A Little Guesthoue when in Bloemfontein.

The place was very clean and we dont have too much complains.... Only the 2 single beds were terrible..the mattresses are very old and uncomfortable...then the room have too much tables and unnecessary items in..it blocks the passage as you move through..especially with baggage as the door in the room cant open properly with the bedside table at the back of the door. The bedlamps are in a bad shape.The electric cables of the lamps was lying on the floor very untidy and look terrible. ..the hairdryer is not blowing properly.. The rest was very good and clean and the 2 fridges was awesome!!.

Not allowed to smoke in the garden outside the rooms, need to leave the premises and smoke outside the gates.
No wifi available in the room even though it gets advertised that the room comes with wifi.
Had to ask for the details to enter the premises even though was advised after payment was made that details will be sent the day before arrival.

Sjoe, I can sense that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Just to be fair. I checked on my phone and all the details were send the morning before arrival. Smoking is allowed inside the premises. Not in the rooms or on the patio in front of the door as I explained to you. We have this wonderful garden with allocated smoking corners available to all our guests. You are right with our wifi too slow for your son's games. It is though good enough for email and messages. We also advertise a clean room, secure premises, crisp linen, and soft towels, coffee, and rusks. Undercover parking that you did receive.

Just a one night stopover but, with a very friendly welcome, clear communication beforehand with directions, instructions and recommendations, it was what was needed after a long day's drive.
The accommodation is small but clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything needed, as well as some extras which many places don't even think about.
Annalie, thank you so much for making our short stay a pleasant and refresshing one.
Best wishes for the future.

Annelie the owner of 'A little Guesthouse' runs a spotless property that we unfortunately only spent one night at. Our garden unit was extremely well equipped and lacked for nothing. These compact but comfortable units are perfect for a short stay like ours and are minutes from Bloemfontein despite being in the countryside.
The natural poo to be offered in 2021 will be appreciated at the friendly guesthouse.l
Excellent well run property which is value for money.

We had to book a stay on short notice and the booking was done fast, the service was friendly and we received helpful guidance in respect of directions, nearby restaurants and malls. Booking in was a breeze and the unit was very clean, tidy and well equipped. The unit was even cleaned on the Saturday during our stay. The room made provision for all weather conditions, aircons for winter/summer, electric blankets, heater, fans. The service was excellent and we will definitely book again and recommend it to our friends/colleagues. Annalie was very friendly and helpful. There was safe parking and our extra vehicle was accommodated. The atmosphere was so nice and peaceful. It is close to the shops, but also away from the city buzz which we needed and appreciated.

The guesthouse is very well-appointed with everything one needs for self-catering. There are even flowers, rusks and sweets in the rooms. The wheelchair bathroom allows for easy access. We had two rooms and one had a lovely stoep with a view of the farm surroundings.
