We slept so well each night of our stay. The breakfast was provided in our room so that we could eat when it suited us and it was a well thought out fresh and tasty continental breakfast. Very good value and highly recommended. There is a fridge and microwave available for use and a private patio allows for outdoor eating in.

The guest house was close to the N1, in a quiet neighborhood and easy to find. The room and ensuite had all the necessities including an air conditioner which was very welcome after a long drive. Wi-Fi access was also great.

I travel to Bloemfontein on a monthly basis and always use Camelia Guest House. The service, value and sleep quality is definitely a home away from home. Elna is always on call and is quick to assist with any requests you have. 5 star service. Well done

We immediately felt welcome after being received by our friendly host. The room and all the facilities were very clean and neat. The lovely garden has a peaceful atmosphere and we enjoyed spending time there. We'll definitely visit Camelia guesthouse again.

Friendly and helpful service. Very clean - specifically the communal area. Bedroom is beautiful, linen exceptional and the bathroom is spacious and well-done. We chose your place because it has a bath and shower - the double basins were a bonus! We enjoyed the peace and quiet after our hard day's work.

What a great place to stay over after a long drive. Rooms are squeaky clean and tastefully decorated. The area is close to the highway so easy to reach. Quiet neighbourhood for a good night's rest. We received wonderful customer service. Will definitely stop here again

Very well equipped rooms and Elna is a great hostess. The whole setup of the questlodge is very good as well and with a great vibe. Any extra wishes were no problem at all. We would love to come back next time we visit Bloem!

Everything about the guesthouse was excellent and we will recommend it to our family and friends. The service was proffesional and everything else was beyond our expectations. We will definately pay a visit to them next time if and when necessary.

Camellia Guest House feels more like a luxury apartment than a Guest House. Beautifully furnished I not only had my own room and bathroom, I had full access to a well-equipped kitchen AND my own enclosed stoep. My breakfast, supplied by Susara was delicious and both Susara and Jan were wonderful hosts. I'd happily recommend Camellia to any traveller. Thank you for a lovely stay.
