      A great deal, and great service”

      This hotel is a fantastic deal, with a spacious comfortable bedroom, an excellent shower, and very sweet staff that look after coffee & breakfast in the morning, and allow for 24 hour check in. This is an excellent place to stay. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

      The staff on duty was very helpful and kind to get me to the correct bus station early in the morning with a trust-worthy driver and also packed breakfast. I arrived late and left early in the morning, so couldn't say much about the hotel. There was only ONE power point/socket in the whole room (meant for 2) which is clearly insufficient.

      They had a group who extended their stay and could not accommodate me, even though I have booked and paid. Kinda disappointed but they put me up at another boutique hotel a couple of blocks away which was nice.

      Hobbit House”

      It is a great place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is welcoming and comfortable. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. There is even a fridge in each room to keep your water etc cold. There are lovely areas where you can just sit and relax and there is very little traffic noise. There are lots of restaurants in walking distance and it is easy to get to Mimosa Mall or the Waterfront. This is my go-to place to stay in Bloemfontein

      Unique place to stay”

      We recently spent two nights in this wonderful guest house - nothing quite like it! Very interesting pictures and furnishings - all in a Tolkein theme - and the staff were extremely helpful. Delicious breakfast, very clean rooms and secure parking.The location is excellent, with good restaurants within walking distance. We would not hesitate to recommend this guest house!

      Excellent”

      Wonderfully refurbished hotel, rooms and common areas are in excellent condition. Lovely swimming pool to cool down, and lots of Hobbit/LOTR decor to admire as you stroll around. A great place to overnight between the coast and Joburg. I found the “75%” discount price on Agoda misleading, as I paid ZAR850 for a couple and the regular rate is ZAR980... Amenities in the room aren’t 4-star or “Boutique” standard. Just a simple bar of soap and instant coffee with powdered creamer. In our room (Elrond) the TV did not work.

      :( ”

      what a pity , we got to the bill which i had paid in full thru agoda the hotel could not even find the amount and did not even know how much the special was for !!!! which made life a nightmare and still is as they are still trying to get extra money out of us then to make things worse we did not use the one room on the last night as my daughters went back to residence earlier and we were quite prepared to pay for the night A gentle man wanted a downstairs room on the monday and we said to the person on duty we would give him our room if he wanted to and then the cost would be his. alas when another manager came on duty he was totally unaware of this , but on the morning when we left it seemed to have been all sorted out . then i got a phone call from them wanting more money for a bar tab and the hotel room. this i am still battling about and now they have sent me a breaj down of the hotle room prices whcih are tottaly different to the agoda prices and payment i made thru them. this has turned out to be a very frustrating and will never stay here again. anyone who stay there make sure that you have all your documentations. oh and another thing, on arriving they stated that they had not received any confirmation of our booking from agoda and only the email i sent them via agoda to say what time we would be arriving from CT . all in all :( not to mention that we had to vacate a room which we asked for due to one of their VIP's having booked that room and they did not have their books in order - so what type of guest are we clearly not VIP's

      This is actually a problem that I have with Agoda: Hobbits gave me an invoice to sign for a total of R850 for our B&B, which I did, marking it as having been paid in full. However, Agoda added a further amount for VAT to the above total when it charged me previously. I believe this to have been illegal. Please explain!

      Comfort, location, and friendly staff

      We arrived by kombi taxi into the city and easily saw the hotel sign along the main street. It was easy to locate the hotel from the main street and we walked a few blocks over to the property. You get a very welcoming feel when entering and the staff is friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good night sleep. Breakfast is included in the rate and we had some very good and strong french press coffee.

      Nice quaint hotel situated in an ideal location”

      Rooms are well appointed, location to major attractions/popular restaurants in Bloem

      The stay was ok. This hotel is perfect for an overnight or two-night stay in Bloem. The rooms are very clean, well-appointed with all the comforts of home. We loved the Hobbit themed rooms with each room named after a character from the J.R.R Tolkien books. The hotel is in a nice suburb, with fantastic restaurants within walking distance. The only issue with the hotel is the paper-thin walls and lack of enforcement of common courtesy. Rowdy guests making noise can keep you up until 2am, and the night manager couldn't do anything. Please be considerate, and no noise after 10pm.

      It was beautifully decorated in a very upmarket way, yet it was uniquely homey! The staff were friendly and went out of their way to be accommodating. It was conveniently located and very comfortable.

      It was really amazing. We are all Lord of the Rings fans so it was a true treat. I was beautiful and really worth the stay after our drive from Johannesburg.

      Charming Hotel. Excellent value for money”

      The decor. The history. The staff

      Our stay at The Hobbit was really enjoyable. It's a charming and very well known boutique hotel. I would however recommend that if traveling as a couple, you choose the bigger room. There is a lot of history at this hotel and it's decor is fantastic. The staff were superb. Nothing was a problem for them. All in all we truly enjoyed our quick one night stay at the Hobbit.
