Who would have thought that our search for a "quick place to stay for the weekend" would unearth this little gem?
Home from Home turned out to be a delightful surprise. Firstly it's located far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to be quiet and peaceful, and yet it's just around the corner from shopping and other attractions in Bloemfontein.
The place itself is amazing; clean, neat, spacious and very well equipped, with the owners keeping things simple, yet stylish. I especially enjoyed the little entertainment area, which was comfortable, with the beautiful furniture making one feel even more at home. The tiny garden was neat and in a surprisingly good condition, considering that it was winter; and it would be a great place to spend some quiet time reading or meditating.
The staff were friendly and helpful; and our contact person, Jean-Marie, was incredibly accommodating; she expressed real concern for us as guests and went way beyond what we expected to make our stay not only comfortable, but pleasant.
Would I go back? Definitely!
