About Franklin View

One of the highest house on the Northern slopes of Naval Hill, Franklin View is an upscale guest house with incredible views over the valley and tasteful, rustic decor throughout.

Each room enjoys satellite TV, and working stations are standard. Guests can rest easy with their belongings stored in electronic safes, and waking up is made easier by the tea & coffee facilities.

A splash spool is situated on site, as is a large balcony overlooking the picturesque suburb of Waverley. Leather furniture and yellow wood accents are to be found throughout the property.

Breakfast is served daily at this property, and guests are free to use braai (BBQ) facilities as well. The Boudoir Boutique Bar is a popular grill located a 13-minute walk from the hotel.

Bloemfontein's National Museum is located four kilometres south of Franklin View, and the Oliewenhuis Art Museum is just about half that distance from the property.

Positive Reviews

Can't beat the view

Travellers simply can't get enough of the views from this aptly named establishment. They say the countryside bursts with colour, especially during springtime and fall, and that nighttime brings twinkling lights in a carpet across the valley floor. It affords the feeling of seclusion without being a long drive from the city centre. The view is a big plus on rainy days when travellers can stay indoors and enjoy watching the city shrouded in cloud.

Amazing breakfasts

Reviews suggest the breakfasts at this property are a real highlight. Few guests fail to mention the food in their reviews. According to guest comments, breakfast is ample, with plenty of fresh fruit and options for all diets. Serving sizes are large, and the quality of the ingredients is evident. Simply put, the owners outdo themselves each morning.

Boutique style and service

Guests say this property offers the best of boutique accommodation. The decoration and furniture is tasteful and comfortable, with big leather chairs the norm throughout the guest house. Rooms are supplied with only premium products and amenities and are found to be the perfect place to relax. Meanwhile, the owners offer truly personal hospitality and ensure that all guests are fully taken care of.
