Premier Hotels & Resorts will be expanding its national footprint to Bloemfontein, with the construction of a brand new 3+-star hotel comprising 88 bedrooms, a restaurant, rooftop function area, lounge, business centre and conference facilities capable of accommodating up to 150 delegates.
The new hotel is situated on the site of what was previously the Stanville Hotel at 85 Zastron Street and is in close proximity to government departments, sport stadiums, as well as landmarks like the National Museum Bloemfontein and Supreme Court of Appeal. The Bram Fischer International Airport and the University of the Free State are also minutes away.
The first phase of construction, which is currently underway, comprises the refurbishment of the existing Stanville Hotel, with phase two resulting in the completion of 45 additional bedrooms, along with the conference facilities.
The first phase set to conclude in September 2018 and the second in November 2018.
Samuel Nassimov, the hotel chain’s Founder and Managing Director, shares: “Our aim is to have a property in every major South African city, as well as in all secondary cities, which is why we have invested R90 million in building a hotel in Bloemfontein”.
