At Windmill Lodge! Great service and amenities. Clean property. Can go off to one of the restaurants on property or enjoy Kareoke at Diamonds! Good for a one or 2 night stay in Bloemfontein in the Free State Province in South Africa. Great hospitality and management left a lovely basket of treats in my room. Check in was simple and...

We were welcomed by a very helpful porter to which we believed would be the start to a great weekend breakaway. After checking in our keycards to open our room would not work. Our porter ran to correct this. Second time round and the chap out of breath, still nothing. Took three tries. The rooms are exactly like they were...

We stayed for one night on our way back to Johannesburg. The hotel is conveniently situated and there is a Spur and Ocean basket restaurant on the property. The room is comfortable but you can see it is getting a bit old I was surprised that there was no mini bar in the room. It is a very average hotel.

Let me start by stating that we were very happy with the service we received. Everyone was very helpful. We also had a good night's sleep and were satisfied with the accommodation. Some things that I however expect from a hotel of this nature that would enable me to give a better rating are: 1) An elevator or easier access...

Slept for one night en route to Cape Town. Good family interleading room. Infortunatelly no cover for the children's duvet. Otherwise would have given it 5stars... Friendly staff, safe parking. Close to highway and petrol station. Would visit again

Stayed @ this hotel during the weekend, and was a bit disappointed by the lack of some basic maintenance, which I did not see on previous visits. It is still a convenient, value for money stopover, with friendly & helpful staff.

This was our stopover on the way to Cape Town and back to KZN! The front desk understands tired guests, as this must be the main reason for guests making use of this hotel - its location is perfect as a 'half-way' stopover in a trusted hotel group hotel - you know what to expect! . The check-in / out...

Checked in last night and was pleasantly surprised at the room as I entered. Then I made the mistake of trying to turn on a TV that could now be sold as an antique. The control with it did not work and TV had to be turned on by the wall. The bathroom was as clean as a mud bath....
