Nice cheap central stay
Posted Nov 14, 2014
Lovely place. Nice and central.
There was a few ups and downs... room was double booked on arrival however the staff were more than accommodating and booked us into a nicer room for the same price with no hassle at all.
On the first night (Thursday) there was a local musician playing in the bar downstairs, where there is a large room for dancing and entertainment and two bars. It was very refreshing to have something lively on the lodge entrance and the rooms are no where near the entertainment area so sleep is not affected.
There was a balcony in every room, although not 5 star it was more than what we were expecting for the price we paid and was lovely for a morning coffee and smoke (though outdoor chairs would have been advisable).
The room was very modern and clean looking. We however had two down-points, as we had moved rooms we had to push the beds together for a double bed. On moving the beds we found 1 pair of mens jocks/underpants... (unfortunately not clean!) and 1 pizza box, contents of which were 1 remaining moldy slice of (ham)? pizza. We were disappointed it wasn't fresh :/. The lift also didnt work on our day of leaving so we had to carry our bads down two flights of stairs.
Apart from the maid obviously cleaning (very nicely) around the beds and not underneath we had a very very pleasant stay and would come back anytime we stay in Bloem.
Thanks for our stay
