"Excellent location - close to airport and easy to find. I stayed there for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the farm style living with ducks, peacocks, rabbits and lambs. Safe parking and the facilities were neat, clean and more than adequate, especially for winter! Friendly Hosts with a big spread for breakfast which was served at any time in the morning. I'll definitely go back and I recommend it to anybody, especially if you like a farm."
" 'n Wegkomskans uit alledaagse gejaag! Uitstekend! Rustig en ontspannend!"
" Good to relax. The place is very quiet and not far from the city. Recommendation: Ensure more security and upgrade bathroom & Dstv."
"Absoluut die moeite werd! Die baie moeite wat daar vir ons gedoen was, was net uit die boeke. Ek sal enige tyd weer gaan kuier."
"Lekker stil en rustig. 'n Stil en rustige omgewing ... gasvry en gul ontvangs soos net ons mense dit kan doen."
"Baie goeie waarde vir geld. Wat 'n wonderlike plek om te oornag. Goeie waarde vir geld. Baie gasvrye eienaars.
Romien R “If you just need a clean bed to sleep over, it will serve the purpose.
We rented the big house for a family of 7. We got lost as the GPS took us to another location, but finally found it. The place is okay just to sleep over, but I think it's a bit over priced. The kitchen did not even have a fridge in it and the tap was broken. The kids had an excellent night and enjoyed the bunk beds. For a quick sleep over, it will serve the purpose. The owner was very friendly and the house was clean."
Marilyn V “Great stay.
It is such a pity our stay was just overnight. Would have enjoyed a longer stay. Only problem was no hot water for a period of time."
Jaco R “Friendly, relaxing and honest atmosphere.
Very friendly and helpful host. Relaxing atmosphere. Glad we made the choice to use Akwela as our stop over from Cape Town to Johannesburg."
Nicole "It was the most amazing stay ever, I felt right at home and don't want to leave, as the room was lovely and refreshing, the evening chat was fun. And complements to the chef for the breakfast, which was yum, yum, yum! Thank you so very much for the wonderful, fun friendly stay! I will be back, thank you! x0x0x0"
"The educators and staff found a second home in Bloemfontein; peaceful, quiet and secure place. We intend coming back with the entire staff for team building."
S L “Lovely, quiet place – we slept like babies
Akwala Guest Farm was very nice. We got lost and the owner came to meet us at the nearest garage, then came with us to SPAR to get food and supplies. When we arrived, the owner's wife came to personally greet and welcome us."
"Thank you for a happy stay and for all your patience with a big group. You couldn't have been more accommodating, we appreciated the "silencing of the Turkey" ! Will recommend your farm to all our sporting friends coming through Bloemfontein."

"As we were only passing through, we only stayed one night but it was definitely a good one! We slept like a rose and ate like a king, and felt very welcome! We enjoyed our talk in the morning! you are very kind and friendly hosts!!"
Susan B “I was happy to stay here.
Very friendly and clean place to stay at. Will return here again, Thanks, the Martin Boys."
Tina V “Goeie nagrus gehad, dankie!
Die woning het voldoen aan ons behoeftes, wat slegs 'n oornag-ruskans moes wees."
Guy N ” Outstanding value for money
The quality and quantity of food was outstanding. The table was set imaginatively, and one can watch wild birds, ducks, rabbits, guinea fowl and peacocks while enjoying the food. Brian and Melody could not do enough for us. This was the best-value stay experienced in South Africa."
