Very welcoming and wonderful environment. Secure. lovley hot Showers and a very big bath. Rooms were spacious and they were accommodating as we arrived very late from Capetown. Staff were very helpful and even assisted us in booking our safari the next day. The bedding was immaculate. I would highly recommend if you want a comfortable place to stay as well as a great stop over enroute to Port elizabeth or Capetown

Visiting Bloemfontein after 15 years was not easy finding suitable accommodation. Especially for 2 couples needing to stay in 2 separate rooms but at least close to each other. Jedidja stood out for the pictures, reviews and ratings. We did not bring along pets but we are animal lovers. We were under the impression that we paid extra via booking.com for the better quality rooms which offers more facilities and comfortability. On arrival we realized that the pictures were taken a long time ago as the facility wasn't exactly the same as per pictures advertised. Nonetheless the staff were friendly and accommodating. The first night we were 3 couples at the venue but our 2nd night we were the only people at the venue. Breakfast was the only highlight as it was fresh, delicious, well prepared and more than enough. The wifi was mostly problematic and unstable. We could see that other rooms were more modern and upgraded to the one's we were given. Our rooms were neat and tidy but definitely not the better rooms. We also did not have pets with us so it was difficult to understand why we were allocated these rooms.... The resident dog (Reece) was very friendly and well mannered. He often visited us in our rooms and we had no issue with it as we love animals. I recommend that when you consider Jedidja, ask for confirmation of the room/s that you will be allocated and what you are paying for. One of our rooms had a shower and the other had a shower and a bath. It was listed as a room with an inter-leading door to the other room. This was not the case. The website also mentions a Boma or braai area - this was not in use or available to use. Parking is safe and behind access controlled gate. Breakfast is from 7am to 9am. Fruits, selection of cereals, full english breakfast, coffee, tea and fruit juice. More than enough and very delicious. We are needing to visit Bloemfontein soon again and unfortunately we are not sure we truly experienced what we paid for. We would not recommend Jedidja and for our next stay in Bloemfontein we will consider other venues. Especially four star rating venues and same value booking.

Overall mixed review: - They were accommodating with allowing us to check in later and at shorter notice - the breakfast was good - beautiful gardens - room was clean - lovely dog and friendly employees But a few negatives: - the room did not look as advertised ( felt like we were put in a B-class room, even though we were the only guests, save one other) - we were told that the light in the room does not work (and thus also not the fan) - the shower was incredibly small and did not empty - they started vacuuming at 7am close by on the property - the rooms were advertised to all have aircon, yet our room did not and we were not told this when booking. - the beds weren't great - when I phoned about availability, we were not offered any better rooms, given a choice as to which room we want, so it was safe to assume the room we would be getting would be similar to those nice ones advertised, which was not the case. Overall, not bad for one night, but felt like we could have gotten better value for our money elsewhere (for R940, we expected a bit more)
