We booked via Booking.com and requested specific dietary requirements. On arrival we were made aware that they were not informed of this requirement but will source it to meet the requirements. It was extremely hot and the pool was not clean for use. The aircon in our room was not functioning and they did attempt to give us a better...

We were so much impressed with everything. Our room was clean, linen and towels neat and had a room leading into a garden. Location is perfect, just off N8 which makes it easy for anyone to find. This is just a walk to Mimosa Mall, next to Mediclinic and filing station. I would recommend it to anyone.

Front desk gentleman went out of his way to be helpful!! Great guy! He dried beach towels for us plus folded them and brought them to our room. Any questions we had he was more than willing to answer or find out for us!

Family Room was good value. Lovely spacious bathroom. Really good full breakfasts served by friendly staff. Loved the convenience of the coffee / tea station in the dining room available at all hours.

For the past few years - Whenever I travel to Bloemfontein for business or travel to Kwazulu - Natal and Gauteng / Pretoria I stay over at the Palm Lodge. I have booked again for May 2017. It is very special in summer to cool off in the swimming pool close to the rooms

We were received very well and accommodated excellently by friendly staff notwithstanding being a large group. Palm Lodge offers good value for money. It is very well located being also a short walking distance from the mall.
