Guesthouse Bloemfontein | Bloemfontein B&B, Self Catering

Lily Guesthouse, Bloemfontein


Lily Guesthouse in the northern suburbs of Bloemfontein is situated only 5 km from the N1, halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town, yet in tranquil surroundings.


We take pride in our true hospitality and excellent personal service. We’ll be glad to help with travel arrangements to and from the airport and other local destinations in Bloemfontein. We can also arrange for day tours in and around Bloemfontein.


We host a variety of different types of guests, ranging from business people, artisans, holidaymakers, international travellers, artists, families, sports groups and, of course, our loyal guests who return again and again.


Relax in the lounge, in the garden, at the braai area or on the stoep, where the sound of the fountain and the song of birds will soothe your soul.


Our famous Lily farmhouse breakfast and other meals are available on request (not included in accommodation price). For people who like the smell of their own chops sizzling on the grill, we also offer braai facilities.

We offer cold drinks and water for sale.
