Warm Karoo is set in a quiet and safe part of Bloemfontein with well-maintained gardens and facilities. The estate boasts function venues with impressive halls, a chapel and grounds. Our guestroom was clean and the mattress, linen and towels were of good quality. However, the bathroom, including the toilet, is open-plan, and part of the bedroom. The Nespresso coffee device, fresh milk, sugar and rusks provided added a lovely touch of luxury as did the large bottles of fragrant shower gel, shampoo, body lotion and sanitiser. Great that no single use plastics are in use. The breakfast was absolutely outstanding - flavoursome and tasty. Ideal for a magnificent breakfast, less so for accommodation.

Designed Nice but No separate bathroom and Some flies in the room. Hospitality was super and it’s a very nice and quiet place in the middle of nature. Enough parking space as well. Unfortunately when we were there no restaurant.

The room was cold and the bed did not have an electric blanket. The bedside lamps did not work.
The breakfast served in the room was a nice idea but did not work. The food was cold and no fresh coffee. No reception office is confusing. No idea what to do with the key the next morning until a garden worker informed me.

A lovely little gem.
Accommodation is neat, tidy and comfortable.
The room could do with minor details like a bar fridge, proper kettle in addition to the Nespresso machine and the outside table could do with a wipe down.
The rest of the experience is wonderful and the breakfast was delicious!

This is the second time myself and my husband have stayed over and we love it at Warm Karoo!
Tammy, the manageress is fabulous and LeRoux the owner is always a pleasure and very welcoming. I would recomend Warm Karoo to anyone in the area or anyone needing a place to stay over in Bloemfontein. It is a beautiful ecape and the breakfasts are always enjoyable. If you are looking for a stunning Wedding Venue, then I suggest you go and have a look at Warm Karoo's website.

We weren't at the lodge for very long but had such a lovely stay. The rooms are lovely and smell stunning. Breakfast was delicious and the main kitchen/lounge area so stunning and cosy!!
Loved the Nespresso machines in the rooms 😉

A lovely farm-feel setting very close to town. The lion roars from the neighboring farm was a pleasant "African wake-up call" the next morning. The rooms are comfortable and a brilliant breakfast was served to end the stay. Unfortunately small detail missing....like soap and shampoo in the room & blinds that close properly :-(

We stayed in the honeymoon suite for one night. The service from the entire staff was exceptional. They went out of their way to help us! The room was very clean and neat. On the downside - it is a little dark,they could use more lighting at the cupboard area where you get dressed. The spa bath was a really nice feature in the room but unfortunately it was not working. A great feature is the Nespresso machine in the room! The breakfast was really great and delicious. The coffee they served us was of high quality and the ladies were so helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone!

We recently drove through Bloem on our way to Cape Town and decided the overnight at Warm Karoo, and what a pleasant experience it was!

The rooms are comfortable and the Nespresso machine, pods provided, was a big plus! The rooms offer everything you may need for a comfortable stay.

Breakfast was a big highlight and we experienced true Free State hospitality!

Thank you to everyone at Warm Karoo for making our experience unforgettable. You will defenitely see us again!
