Purple House B And B

From R180 PPS

Overview

The Purple House in Smithfield is one of the oldest and nowadays most funkiest, grooviest guest houses in the Free State. If outstanding value for money is what you want, then look no further!

The house was build around the 1920's and was the official residence of a succession of bank managers in the town.

This Guest House is run by myself, Johann Greeff, and I am always available. Here I do not pretend to be 5-star. I just know how to offer the best value for money and the coolest, country vibe in town. I am a little laid back in what I do, but I do understand the importance of personal service and interacting with my friends who come to stay. And yes....if you book here, we will be friends for life!

We have hosted some very interesting people in the house. Think of the Ian Roberts and the whole Radio Kalahari Orkes group, Manuel Escorcio, Petronel Baard and Karen Zoid family and important people in politics. They all smaaked the coolness of the guest house.

The Pierneef room is nice and comfortable with Oregon floors and high ceilings. The unit is fully renovated with a queen-sized bed, extra length and private bathroom with shower and bath. Full DStv is available.

The Gallery room is fitted with two single beds, two lounge chairs and has an en-suite bathroom with shower. Full DStv is available.

The Bluegum Cottage is situated in our second house on the property of The Purple House B & B. It consists of a downstairs room with two single beds and upstairs is a queen size bed with a balcony overlooking the garden.

The Gecko Cottage can accommodate five persons in comfort. We have two rooms in the cottage. One room has a double bed and the other has three single beds. There is a kitchen and bathroom is separate. This is backpacker style accommodation. It is basic, but comfortable. Our rates here can be as low as R150 per person (five people) and thus it offers real value for money.


Coffee and tea-making facilities are provided in the kitchens and we also have a small café in the garden. Dinners and breakfasts are served inside the house or on the stoep. You could also have it in the lovely tea garden with a little pond. The house also has a private cinema for guests entertainment ... prior arrangement for shows is a must.

Come and stay and explore my cute little town!

It was a wonderful surprise! It has left us with such good feelings towards Sleeping-OUT and we will definitely use the website to book accommodation again . In fact, we might stay at the exact same place on a future trip because the whole experience was great.

Great value for money. Very quaint house with vintage items for sale. Johann is a wonderful host who goes out of his way for guests. We would definitely consider staying there again.
