I moved here when the previous place was terrible. The staff was excellent, the room was clean and so warm. Beautiful view and is very quiet. Really great and I will stay here again when travelling to Bloemfontein
I was working on a project and part of being there was to make sure I had 100 excellent WiFi service. I certainly did and the team was incredibly helpful when we discovered that the WiFi was great but my computers battery was not holding the charge. They did everything they could to support me. The view from the hill top was breathe taking. Breakfasts tasty. Gustav is a wonderful human, interesting and a big heart. His wife, a beautiful being. Even arranged more gluten free bread for me! And there manager was awesome as well. All the staff we caring, supporting and wonderful. The guest house itself was a work of art!!!!!
Pleasant and peaceful indeed. I will always use it book this Guest House for my visits to Bloemfontein. Very humble owner and always courteous of how he interacts with his guests. I love everything about the design and quality of the property.
Please enlarge the sign board entrace at bottom of the road. It was not visible at nite especially during load shedding. Did not see any security at night for the vehicles since there is no security gate.
Our experience at the hotel was absolutely amazing. The hotel was really nice, the food was amazing and the staff were so helpful and kind it made us feel completely at home. Our only complaint is that the bath was dirty other than that we loved every moment spent at the hotel.
Gustav is a friendly and amazing host. Breakfast was so delicious and filled me for the rest of the day. Stunning view, Gustav was for us to meet with a friend after check out time and enjoy a coffee on their patio. Will always stay at Franklin View when visiting Bloemfontein.
This hotel is incredible to stay in for the views. The breakfasts were also amazing and the staff were incredibly friendly. The rooms however have thin walls and you can hear everything from your neighbour to the staffs rooms. I really battled to sleep.
We stayed at this establishment in August last year when we travelled down to Cape Town - we were moving to the Cape for good and it was our first stop after leaving Durban. We found the guest house fairly easily and the only down side was the very steep driveway up to the guest house. We were warned about it though so it didn't come as a shock. The room was excellent, the guest house was close to a shopping centre where we could buy some supper. Breakfast was provided by the guest house and it was adequate. Recommended.
We had such a lovely stay with a spectacular view. We weren't planning on staying for breakfast, but were so glad we did! Great value for money! Would definitely recommend Franklin View! Staff was so friendly.
The views were breathtaking. Absolutely stunning. Breakfast was amazing and the staff were so friendly and hospitable. The place was very clean and up to standard. Will definitely go back. Thank you for a wonderful stay
