Adeo Boutique Guest House is comfortable and welcoming

Adeo Boutique B&B - Waverley - Bloemfontein

Adeo Boutique Guest House , Waverley, Bloemfontein

Adeo Boutique Guest House is located on elegant Innes Street in the leafy suburb of Waverly, Bloemfontein.

Lying at the foot of Naval Hill Nature Reserve and north facing, this four-star guest house is both quiet and sunny.  Innes Street is exclusive and full of old-world charm and is lined with trees and stately homes.

Adeo is Latin for “visit”, or more colloquially, “welcome” and that is exactly what you can expect from the owner, Michelle, and her team.

Michelle says, “We offer executive accommodation in a charming environment.”

Accommodation at Adeo Boutique Guest House

The guest house can accommodate up to 16 people in six different rooms.  The rooms are furnished with a combination of classic furniture and modern amenities.  Each room has its own private entrance on to the garden and patio.

The rooms come with an en-suite bathroom, a Queen-sized bed, DStv, a tea and coffee station, desk and chair and a safe.

My room was comfortable, spacious and, even in the depths of winter, warm.  I slept like the dead which is testament to the crisp percale linen and excellent mattress.  I most enjoyed the high ceilings, wooden floors and view across the garden.

The bathroom was modern and sparkled.  There was nothing old-world about the plumbing!

My bedroom, Room 3, opened onto the veranda with its deck chairs and swimming pool and the dining room was just a short walk away.

Facilities at Adeo Boutique Guest House

Each guest is given an English breakfast menu on checking into the guest house.  Guests are required to fill in the menu form before submitting to the waitress.

 Breakfast is served in the lovely dining area and comes in the form of a healthy and the English breakfast.

Guests are offered a fresh pot of coffee or tea on being seated.  The cereal, yoghurt and fruit are served buffet style. 

The English breakfast menu offers eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, toast and tomatoes.  One can choose how you want each of these prepared.  The eggs may be fried, scrambled or poached and served soft, medium or hard.  And you can choose your bacon soft or crisp.  The chef certainly aims to please!

My breakfast was served piping hot and exactly to my order.

Other meals may be prepared on request and the chef caters for all dietary requirements provided that advance notice is given.

As mentioned, the guest house has a swimming pool and a spacious garden.  The setting is lovely and I wish I had more time to sit on the veranda and soak up the sun. The parking is off-street and secure.

Adeo Boutique Guest House also has a small conference facility.

“We cater for business conferences, baby showers and other speciality functions.  The room can accommodate 20 people and is fully equipped with a projector, whiteboard and all the other necessary equipment for a conference.  We also provide all catering for these functions,” says Michelle.

My stay at Adeo Boutique Guest House was comfortable and I felt very much at home.  Thank you, Michelle and your team for a very pleasant stay.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
