Average guest rating:

Kuilfontein is a fifth generation working sheep farm situated conveniently just 500 metres from the N1 between Bloemfontein and Colesberg, close to Springfontein in the Southern Free State.

About Springfontein:

Springfontein is an important railway junction. The lines from Port Elizabeth to East London and to Gauteng converge here, while another line runs west to the diamond-producing town of Koffiefontein via Jagersfontein and Fauresmith. The town derives its name from the strong artesian spring on the farm Springfontein.

Part of this farm was chosen as the site for the new village in 1904. Municipal status was granted in 1912. Springfontein is situated 150 km southwest of Bloemfontein on the N1. This town's history relates directly to the struggle and especially the hardships of the Anglo-Boer war.

A full English Breakfast and Karoo Lamb Dinners are served in the Guest House. We are a family run business; Sandra Staples is the Hostess with her children Shelton and Martinette. Shelton is a qualified Chef and Martinette a Hotel school graduate.

Rooms are equipped with heaters, fireplaces as well as electric blankets for those chilly Free State winter nights. For those warm summer days and nights the rooms have fans and airconditioners and a sparkling pool to cool off in.

If travelling on the N1, reward yourself with a visit to Kuilfontein and you will not be disappointed.
