Experience the charm and secluded enchantment of Marrakech, a farm-like retreat situated in a picturesque surrounding on an 8th piece of land. The decor consists of old and new items collected over the years from Morocco, Java, Egypt, Africa and more. Despite the peaceful location of Marrakech we're mere minutes from major shopping centers & entertainment hotspots. We look forward to welcoming you with our unique brand of hospitality and personal service. Marrakech is committed to meeting the exact needs of our guests, offering accommodation at very competitive rates. We offer 4 luxurious rooms which are elegantly furnished. Five of these stylish rooms have doors leading into a sun splashed garden with an abundant bird life, gemsbuck and springbuck.

We stay at Marrakech every time we are in Bloemfontein, and it continues to be excellent value for money. We're always greeted with a warm welcome by the hosts, and their breakfasts are a treat. I haven't seen any other place in Bloem that offers this kind of hospitality in such a comfortable and relaxing setting (rooms, garden with birdlife, swimming pool, lounge).

Everything was more than amazing !! Fantastic accommodation !! The Concierge was fantastic and made us feel more than welcome. The room was spacious and had everything to make our stay more than pleasant. Although we left early on a very crisp winter morning, we were bid good-bye by the amazing Concierge - will definitely recommend this Establishment as a preferred choice of accommodation in Johannesburg !

Friendly service. Great accommodation. Went out of their way to accommodate my dietary requirements (food was delicious). They also moved us to a room that was more suitable for our babies which we truly appreciated. Highly recommend this place.

The place is beautiful. Really well decorated. Welcome was friendly. Host was very helpful. A real comfortable stay. Great communication leading up to the stay. The only critique I can give is that even though the accommodation is listed as a pet friendly establishment, the other dogs on the property are not as socialized to visiting dogs as I would have hoped. We had to keep our dog contained most of the time and on a leash to avoid contact on the property.

Furnishings, especially in public areas are lovely antiques, carpets & rugs.
Breakfast was excellent.
Bedlinen was clean, but pillows were rock hard.
Towels were washed thin and edges tattered.
Maintenance totally substandard with broken & cracked windows, broken & chipped tiles, dirty carpet spots, black algal growth to shower tile grout.
All shows a disregard of good maintenance practises.

From arrival to departure this was one of the highlights of our visit to South Africa. The rooms, staff, food and venue were all of a very high standard. I can recommend this venue, with its unique luxurious/African atmosphere wholeheartedly.

Discovered I had been booked in by a friend who had found the place by chance - all worries disappeared the moment we arrived. Hennie & Charles are delightful hosts and the guest house is fabulous - a real Tardis (Doctor Who Fans will understand) with every room beautifully designed and appointed - eclectic quality as far as the eye can see.
The honesty bar was well stocked and after a great nights sleep in a comfortable bed, breakfast was excellent - great coffee too! Highly recommended and would certainly stay again without hesitation.

My wife recently accompanied me on a business trip, and we were pleasantly surprised by our experience over our 2 night stay. Firstly, the rate was far better than what I'm used to when staying in Bloem, and that was only the start.
Both Hennie and Charles are the most polite, friendly, and ever-willing to assist gentlemen. The location was so peaceful and relaxing, breakfast was awesome, and the facilities exceeded my expectations; this based on my past experiences of staying in similar accommodation on average 20 nights a year over the past 13 years.
My wife was so taken aback by the cosy and welcoming feel of the place (in addition to being in awe of the furniture) that we both really felt sad to return home.

We hope to return to Marrakech soon, hopefully not on business.
