The Suburban Guest House is a modern, up market establishment which was born from the need to cater for the travelling businessman as well as his family when needed. As the name suggests, we are situated in the leafy Dan Pienaar suburb of Bloemfontein, which was recently voted one of the best suburbs to live in South Africa.

Fantastic overnight stay in Bloemfontein! Really affordable, around 38 USD per night via Booking.Com. Excellent room, clean, modern, view over the garden. Safe parking. In a lovely, quiet neighborhood. The manager, Gustav, is an absolute delight, ensured we had all we needed. And the breakfast (included) was amazing.What a pleasant surprise!

We had a very comfortable stay in a nice quiet room. Received a warm welcome and a good recommendation for a restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed a really scrumptious breakfast , which was beautifully served.

If i had to visit Bloem again or anyone who wants to visit Bloem i would recommend the Suburban for that person. I cannot wait for My visit again in June so that i book at the place. Rooms are very clean. Staff is so friendly. Breakfast was perfect and on time. We didn't have to wait for the food. The food waited for us as were travelling with the Old lady. Thank you Suburban for hosting me, my brother and my mother. You are really the best in Bloemfontein

Thank you Gustav for making my stay a positive one. The room was clean. Staff there when needed and not there when not needed and the garden relaxing. Unfortunately, my stay and departure times only allowed for one breakfast but that one was very good. It might be a good idea to expand on the breakfast options but then again, this is a guest house catering for small "groups" (so the limited option is understandable). Keep it up!
