Just a mere 12 km from the city centre, Akwela Guest Farm
offers you the best of both worlds. Close enough to enjoy everything the city has to offer and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Akwela Guest Farm is unique in that it does not compete with the Cities Bed and Breakfast and Hotel Accommodation currently offered. With a choice between Bed and Breakfast, full board, long term or total self catering, weather you are one person or a medium size group you will find that we are able to meet all your accommodation requirements.
Akwela Guest Farm is the only true Farm like Guest house in Bloemfontein, Free State, offering tranquility for the weary traveler, overworked businessman or those seeking to re-connect with your inner self, surrounded by nature, farm animals and beautiful sunrises and sunsets you will find that your needs for quiet will be met.
There is a growing market in the affordable accommodation sector for contractors working on the N8 corridor project as well as tour groups of school children, Church groups, and hobby and sport enthusiasts as well as the passing through travelers. Essentially, these groups cannot afford to pay the traditional tariffs charged by commercial hotels and smaller Bed and Breakfast establishments as their parties are normally 10 plus and their duration of stay is between 2 and 5 days.
With the current room and bed configurations Akwela guest farm can comfortably accommodate up to 25 guests. At Akwela Guest farm you will not find fancy fittings or decorations, this enables us to offer rates that are affordable without compromising your comfort.
Akwela Guest Farm strives to target the ‘group market’ as well as the family fun weekend market with the residents of Bloemfontein also in mind.
