About Oude Kweekhuys

We are in a quiet street in a valley on the northern slopes of Naval Hill in Bloemfontein. Oude Kweekhuys literally means "Old Nursery House" because it was built in 1907 as the house of the first plant- nurseryman in Bloemfontein.

The house and outbuildings have been restored with all mod-cons but retain the Edwardian-period look. Enjoy the garden with gazebo, verandas, beautiful old trees and much bird-song. Parking is behind an electronic gate and each room has a gate remote.

We have books full of complimentary references by guests over the past 11 years.


Some rooms have double beds and some have two single beds.

Each room has:
Its own private entrance
En-suite shower/toilet/washbasin
Fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, TV, fan/heater or air-con
Top-quality bedding
Complimentary coffee, tea bags, milk & beskuit


Parking is under cover, safely behind electronic gates. Optional is our popular tasty continental breakfast basket for each guest. Dutch, English, German and Afrikaans are spoken!


Bloemfontein is famous for its history: it was founded in 1847 by a British major, and for 40 years it was the largest town north of the Orange River, until Johannesburg was founded in 1886. In 1854 Bloemfontein became the capital of the independent Boer Republic of the Orange Free State, which was named after the royal House of Orange of the Netherlands, and by all accounts it was a very jolly and cultured place.

The Women's Monument which commemorates the 26 000 women and children who died in the British concentration camps, and the adjacent Anglo-Boer war museum, receives 15 000 visitors annually. For those interested in military history there are 2 other military museums and many famous battlefields to visit in the area.
