Welcome to Grateful Guest House in Bloemfontein, operating since 2007, following in the legacy of my parents, Don & Charlene, whose constant hospitality left its mark on me. They opened their doors to travelers and God-sends on and off for as long as I can remember.

The main activity at Grateful is accommodating guests. We have guest house, overnight, self-catering, backpackers, guestroom, country house, guest farm type accommodation on the property, and can also book you in at a hotel or game lodge nearby if you prefer a more upmarket visit to Bloemfontein.
