Badly situated hotel

Posted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: Friendly reception staff
Cons: Everything. Bloemfontein is a tourist town, they must look at what other hotels offer and benchmark
Location: City centre but hobos must be controlled
The website is totally misleading. One could not sleep peacefully as beggers, drunk people and all types of vehicles made noise throughout the night. We had to ask reception to call for police intervention to drive these drunks and beggers away.The room we had was good for a couple. The area is unsafe. We had to call reception everytime we wanted to turn the TV set on. Prices are reasonable and the staff members are always willing to help. Prepare yourself for total Hotel Hell! No, dont go there, its terrible.

De ligging van het hotel is perfect!

Pros: Het ontbijt,de kamers met vele tv kanalen en het balkon.
We hebben genoten van het hotel.We hebben 2 nachten geslapen in dit hotel.De ligging is perfect,het is namelijk dichtbij het Free state stadion,dichtbij het grote winkelcentrum,en winkels zijn om de hoek.Het ontbijt is erg gevarieerd.

I never criticise if I can help it. If your on a tight budget and cannot afford anything else, this place is fine, otherwise go somewhere else. Area is not good, rooms are pokey and smells of smoke. We left shortly after check in and found another hotel to stay in.

Tough nut

Posted Dec 5, 2011
Having to find affordable available accommodation is becoming harder every time I am on the road. Which is often. The web page impressed me much but upon arrival was concerned about location and outside appearance. Pleasantly surprised when entered staff friendly, helpful, efficient and polite. Room functional and clean. Car safety locked underground thank goodness. As women who normally travels alone if I did not have my son with me would not have stayed as the location definitely leaves much to be desired and so does nothing for the hard work put in from the staff behind the doors and off the street which is a pity as would be very popular if in different location

Stanville Hotel, Bloemfontein

Posted Jan 24, 2011 on Hotels
The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of Bloemfontein. It is a bit noisy with a main road in front, and a pub down stairs. But it suited me, not to expensive, and i only needed a place to sleep while i was in Bloemfontein.

Stanville Hotel, Bloemfontein

Posted Oct 22, 2010 on Hotels
The experience was pathetic to say the least. The star rating could never have been done at the same hotel!! The lifts getting to the room smelled horrible almost choking you. And I'm sure they aware of it because the next morning There was an air freshener block that you find in Urinals at public toilets it the lift. The rooms were not clean. beddings were not white which always indicates a suspect place. The beddings and carpets in the room was terribly stained. The bathroom was not up to standard, there is no hot water at the basins and the shower is dirty, had to shower with sandals on. Would not recommend to anyone. We were booked in for 2 nights but checked out the first thing after the first night and had to find other accommodation. The rooms were very noisy to the early hours of the morning as well. to get a 1 star rating its has to be clean, this hotels fails horribly at the first hurdle. I dont know how this grading could be possible.
