“Liedjiesbos is Hospitality!”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I took my wife to South Africa to celebrate our 18th anniversary. We were driving from Cape Town to Johannesburg and did not expect to stop in Bloemfontein. However, it was quite late by the time we were approaching Bloemfontein so we decided to spend a night there. The unexpected stay for one night turned out to be a most enjoyable stay for 3 nights both myself and my wife will not forget. I find the architecture and decorations of Liedjiesbos very attractive - the glassy windows and slide doors allow maximum penetration of skylight and views to the lovely lawn and garden outside the bedrooms. The dining area is beautifully decorated with a good selection of African art works and is a great place for chatting, etc. I was later told that the guest house is designed by an awarded architect! The bed room is spacious, clean and the bed is luxuriously large and comfortable. Food is fresh and delicious, the milk tart is a must. What makes Liedjiesbos different from any other hotels / guest houses my wife and I have stayed is that the owners treated my wife and I as if we were good friends to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. Thank you for the tips on major attractions of Bloemfontein without which we would have missed the Museum Park and the opportunity to see the cheetah and other extremely rare cats of South Africa. It was an unforgettable experience for us to actually touch the cheetahs! The staff members were also very friendly and helpful. We shall definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room on the left hand side of the dining area can view stars on bed and is ideal for romantic couple...

Stayed here for a couple of nights in January on the way down from Sodwana to Cape Town. This place was recommended by friends who had stayed there the year before and WOW what a stunning place. Style, location, hospitality, breakfast and value for money. Thank you both for an extremely comfortable stay.

Room Tip: There are only 3or 4 rooms and we saw them all. You will be hard pressed to find a fault with any of...

Absolutely fabulous stay. It was no trouble to arrange an extra bed in our room for my 8-year old. Better still, he had the run of the place - and he loves exploring!!
We had a wonderful time chatting away to the owner/chef.
When going to Bloemfontein - stay here!

This is a "must stay" when you are in the area. The accomodation is simply STUNNING and the owners are friendly, professional and strike just the right balance between making you feel welcome, but not crowding you. It is a bit out of town, but that is what gives this the serene and relaxed atmosphere that is what the Freestate is all about. You should definitively eat dinner at the guesthouse at least one of the nights of your stay, as the food is simply incredible.

Convenient location (rural but close to town and highway), beautiful house, gardens, interiors, with luxurious fittings for a guest house. Excellent food and tolerance of our small children in what was otherwise an adult environment. A little disappointing that service and organisation fell short of the high standards displayed elsewhere. Breakfast haphazard, table not set, drinks arrived late. We were significantly overcharged on the bill (scribbled scrap of paper) and it then took 1/2 hour to correct when we were packed and ready to go. Maybe because owners were not around ?

We stayed just one night, but it was fantastic. We got such a warm welcome from the owner/manager, upon arrival we were given complimentary herbal foot baths delicious cheesecake and coffee. The entire establishment is very tastefully decorated yet has an extremely relaxed and homely feel. The room as stunning with a gorgeous bathroom and looked out onto the indigeonous gardens. We decided to take the home-cooked dinner which was amazingly flavoursome and while relaxing with a bottle of wine we were presented with a delectable cheese platter. Breakfast too was beautifully presented and generously portioned. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone passing through Bloemfontein.
