Pleasant stay
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Dec 2020
The Hobbit is a gem in Bloemfontein with a languid and comfortable atmosphere and setting. We were welcomed by Thabo who was very helpful as was Keke.

Our peace was somewhat shattered by a family with 4 noisy small children but that was not the fault of the hotel.
Two suggestions:
1. Place a curtain or block the glass above the bedroom door as light streams in very early.
2. Place a fan in the bedrooms as the aircon can be too cold.

This is the house where JRR Tolkien was born. It was my first time staying here . Each room has a name from a character out of the book .My room was very spacious , had TV , Fridge , and a huge bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Brakefast was amazing . I had an omelette which was probably the best I ever had . This will be my place of choice in Bloemfontein. This is also a National Heritage site . The house displays many pictures and info from the Hobbit books .

We discovered the Hobbit Boutique Hotel by accident while looking for accommodation for a wedding! Their communication were great and their rates excellent! The rooms are beautiful and clean, the garden is a wonderful sight to wake up to each morning and their breakfast was delicious! This will be my go-to place in Bloem from now on and is at the highest spot on my recommendation list.

I was impressed by the fast and friendly response to my request for details about the hotel. The spacious clean room, spacious bathroom, the peaceful garden, the refreshing pool, and the excellent breakfast omelet were all a confirmation that I struck treasure! The amazing story of Tolkien who was born in the place now bearing the name of his famous novel, added to the delight of a lovely place to stay in Bloemfontein with secure parking and friendly service. Excellent value for money! 3 km from the University, 3 km from Naval Hill Planetarium.

Room tip: Most of the rooms have a view of the lovely peaceful garden. My room was closest to the street, However traffic noise was never a problem.

Each room is unique wit a lovely atmosphere.
They serve a great breakfast and I always invite my children to come and join us at a very reasonable price. It is my favourite hotel when in Bloemfontein.

Room tip: Inside the main building for a great experience

It was a real treat staying at this place. We were very impressed with the pleasant, welcoming attitude of the staff. The service was excellent. Loved how beautifully decorated the hotel was and it looked like the hotel was was well looked after.
The pillows weren't the best however it was just personal preference.
Nevertheless, will certainly return.
It is also in a great location where there are lovely restaurants nearby.
