Amazing, quiet and tranquil place with good views. Clean and well kept. Only concern is driveway if nervous driver or short person, Can be tricky. Otherwise an amazing place at good price and great quality. Amazing hosts as well.

This is the second year in a row I have stayed at the Franklin View Guest House while on business in Bloem. The guest house remains my favorite ever. The rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable. Breakfast is extraordinary. But most of all, the hosts make you feel extraordinarily welcome. This place is the absolute best.

Room tip: The larger rooms cost a bit more, but are so worth it.

Relatives booked the Franklin View on our behalf. This was our first visit to South Africa and we were treated to the best way to see this diverse country - by road! This hotel was a stop on our way back to the Scottburgh area through Durban. This truly was a hidden gem, found with the assistance of GPS. Gustav gave us what I think would have been the best room in the house on the second floor. We felt like we were staying in a romantic, tree house setting! Very unique with a gorgeous view of the city of Bloomfontein. Breakfast was included with our stay. Gustav and his staff were sure to ensure we had everything we needed - eggs, bacon, fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, etc. - all in a beautiful dining area! If you stay at the Franklin View, be sure to roam the grounds as they have truly made this a warm and welcoming home for their visitors! An eclectic oasis not to be missed!

Room tip: Ask for a room away from parking area as they are quieter and nicer!

Appropriately highly-rated B&B in the suburbs of Bloemfontein. Stunning room and very well looked after during our stay by Gustav, Marike and their team. Scrumptious breakfasts, served as soon as you are seated. Pre-arrival special arrangements carried out perfectly, with thanks. Will definitely be our accommodation of choice in Bloemfontein.

Unusual and unique. A hidden gem in Bloemfontein. Better value than what is
on offer at and from most hotel chains. Close to airport and easy to find. Various different room sizes and types to choose from.
