“"Freezing outside BUT warm inside"”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We had the pleasure of staying here over this past weekend on a bike trip...there were about 40 of us in the group and the service and friendliness of the staff would put many so called upmarket hotels to shame...it is a true gem of a place with the best vetkoeks I have ever tasted accompanied by a great lamb spit braai. The wine cellar is well worth a visit.

We stayed in Room "Rock Art" which is in the House next to the main building, very homely with furniture you would have found in your Granny's house back in the day. Thankfully unlike Granny's house the beds had electric blankets otherwise we would not have had much sleep in the -5 temperatures.

The next morning a hearty breakfast awaited us and then it was on the bike again for home...the roads in the area are excellent for biking and those dry Free State vistas are food for the soul.

Do yourself a favour and just get there...you wont be sorry.

Seamus & Lisa McGuigan.

Room Tip: Rock Art in The House.

We booked at Fouriesburg Country Inn for the weekend in order to make a day trip to Afriski. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we received and the quick check-in process which is so unlike the cold reception you receive when visiting hotels and resorts. The staff were friendly and went the extra mile throughout the 2 night stay. The rooms were very nice and clean. My 2 kids enjoyed the bunk bed in the family room. The dinner and breakfast as well as the service and ambience at the restaurant was excellent.
The staff were very informative about our visit to Afriski and how to get there, maps, forms to be completed, etc. This stay was excellent value for money and a convenient place to stay for a day visit to Afriski in Lesotho (5min from the border).

By far the best country hotel. Local cosine, 3 meals a day stunning accommodation. Part of a tour arranged by Fouriesburg country tours. The whole experience can only be described as Unforgettable ! Rooms are all individually decorated with antique furnishings.

Room Tip: Stayed in 4 seasons room 1 of 4 similar in a separate sandstone house on the property

Historic hotel (more than 100 years old) cosy atmosphere, with good local kitchen (though it was too much, I could not finish my platye). The Irish coffee is fantastic. However, I would redecorate the bar area, too dark, black painted walls etc. Would be nice if there would be a leaflet with the history of the hotel.

This old country-side hotel has all the trappings of the typical rural hotels (lots of steps and out-buildings), but once you have settled down, the small town hospitality overwhelms you.Nice food, very nice wine list.

My wife and I spent quite possibly the best weekend away ever at the Fouriesburg country inn. We had the privilege of staying in the ABW room (not the ABW room as I mistakenly called it, sorry Kobus). Too Beautiful, love the bay windows, the Oregon pine and I wanted to steal one of the Boer War Rifles off the wall but my wife said "what would Mike say if he saw us riding out with a bloody great gun sticking out of the pannier bag?" brilliant food, awesome ambiance, super helpful staff and utterly excellent Hosts. want an awesome stay over place, that is Bike friendly, I couldn't think of any better place, my only regrets.......we only managed to stay for 2 nights. Thanks Guys, Heaven on earth.
