Comfort and Luxury
Springfontein House is graded a 3 star guesthouse by The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. Springfontein House is also in the Portfolio Collection and rated Great Comfort and Luxury.
In the bedrooms the comfy beds have crisp linen, plump pillows. Outside, white walls dazzle and creepers climb over the veranda. Adding to the interest of the obviously well-loved property, is a bricked patio, captivating and colourful flower-beds abounding in the garden. Something to be welcomed in Free State summers is our crystal clear swimming pool. Adding to the overall sense of peace and tranquility is our series of fishponds. But obviously, the reason you come here is to be looked after, and arriving from the biscuity veld, you’ll feel lucky indeed. → Read more
Three course meals
Meals are normally of three courses. Typically, guests are introduced to their meal by a choice of homemade pate, either chicken liver or snoek pate. In the winter a wholesome, warming soup could well be included on the menu. The main course often is roast leg of peerless Karoo lamb or roast neck of pork. Meals predictably come to a fitting conclusion with a choice of puddings such as Mousse au Chocolat, Pear Poached in Red Wine or the speciality of the house; Home-Made Ice Cream with “Death by Chocolate”. → Read more
