Rustige plaas atmosfeer in 'n klein dorpie, met baie geskiedenis.

Ons was regtig verras by die Die Stal. Dit was netjies, groot en ruim met alles wat ons nodig gehad het. Die bietjie geskiedenis by die ou gebou en dorpie was die kersie op die koek.

Quiet farm atmosphere in a small town, with a lot of history.

We were really surprised at Die Stal. It was neat, big and spacious with everything we needed. The bit of history at the old building and village was the icing on the cake.

Hemel op aarde.

Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid, ons het met die intrapslag al tuis gevoel. Akkomodasie was puik en kommunikasie was ook puik, was heeltyd op hoogte gehou van veranderinge en enige nuus. Dankie almal, ons was hemel toe en terug.

Heerlik rustig en gerieflik.

Ons was vir die derde keer by Die Groenhuis. Hierdie keer was my suster en swaer uit Graaff-Reinet saam met ons, en ons het Die Stal as geheel - kombuis en al - tot ons beskikking gehad. Alles was volledig, gerieflik en netjies. Ons het 'n vriendelike en gasvrye ontvangs en diens ontvang.

We were at Die Groenhuis for the third time. This time my sister and brother-in-law from Graaff-Reinet were with us, and we had Die Stal as a whole - kitchen and all - at our disposal. Everything was complete, comfortable and tidy. We received a friendly and hospitable welcome and service.

Due to loadshedding we did not stay in Stal but in one of the other units.

Lekker ou platteland.

Die Stal is 'n pragtig gerestoureerde drieslaapkamerhuis. Elke kamer met 'n en suite-badkamer waar mens gerieflik baie langer as slegs een nag kan deurbring met goeie vriende of familie. Jens het vooraf baie inligting deurgestuur wat baie gehelp het met hoe om te ry, wat om te verwag, oor die dorp, waar om te gaan eet, ens. en ons geakkommodeer toe ons twee keer die datum van ons verblyf moes verander. Thembi het ons baie vriendelik ontvang. Ons het heerlik by die Pitstop geëet en ons hond was daar ook baie welkom soos by Die Stal. Ons sal beslis weer daar oornag. In ons slaapkamer en in die kombuis was ligte wat aangekom het tydens beurtkrag. Dit het baie gehelp toe ons die oggend vroeg wou vertrek tydens beurtkrag en is 'n bedagsame toevoeging tot die verblyf.

Nice old countryside.

The Stable is a beautifully restored three bedroom house. Each room with an en-suite bathroom where one can comfortably spend much longer than just one night with close friends or family. Jens sent a lot of information in advance which helped a lot with how to drive, what to expect, about the town, where to eat, etc. and accommodated us when we had to change the date of our stay twice. Thembi received us very kindly. We had a delicious meal at the Pitstop and our dog was also very welcome there as at Die Stal. We will definitely stay there again. In our bedroom and in the kitchen were lights that came on during load shedding. It helped a lot when we wanted to leave early in the morning during load shedding and is a thoughtful addition to the stay.

Netjiese verblyf in historiese Karoo.

Ons oornagverblyf by Die Stal was baie netjies en gerieflik. Ou historiese stal wat in akkommodasie omskep is. Boonop hondevriendelik met groot omheinde grasperk. Lekker braaigeriewe. Enigste nadeel was die slegte kondisie van paaie na en van Philippollis.

Neat accommodation in historic Karoo.

Our overnight stay at Die Stal was very neat and comfortable. Old historic stable converted into accommodation. Plus dog friendly with large fenced lawn. Nice braai facilities. Only downside was the poor condition of roads to and from Philippollis.

'n Geskiedkundige plekkie propvol karakter.

Die stal is 'n pragtige plekkie vol herhinneringe en dit voel of jy in 'n monument slaap. Die boek wat geskryf is deur die eienares was vreeslik interesant.

A perfect stop on our way back from Cape Town.

What a perfect stopover. We chose to use the braai facilities but the smell of dinner being prepared in the kitchen was mouthwatering. Jens was informative with lots of insight sent via Whats App prior to our arrival. The staff were warm and friendly and the accommodation was superbly clean. Would highly recommend Die Stal to anyone travelling back from Cape Town and looking for a quiet rest over far enough away from the main road but close enough to access again in the morning.

Perfect for a family with dogs travelling between Cape Town and Johannesburg.

We extended our stay because the reviews were good and there was enough space for our family. We needed the gated garden especially as our dogs are big. We had a lovely Karoo meal and warm beds heated by electric blankets. The dishes were done for us without requesting so and had fresh towels delivered. Jens and his team arranged a bath for our children in a separate unit. We received great comms with updates on the weather and attractions around Philippolis. Thank you for a lovely stay.

'n Versteekte Diamant.

In plaas daarvan om weereens in Colesberg oor te slaap, het ek besluit om 'n nag in Philippolis deur te bring. Dit was ongelukkig al laat, maar ek was aangenaam verras met my ontvangs by Die Stal, en wens ek kon klein bietjie langer kuier! Pragtig netjies, die mense so vriendelik en die geriewe fantasties.

A Hidden Diamond.

Instead of sleeping over in Colesberg again, I decided to spend a night in Philippolis. It was unfortunately already late, but I was pleasantly surprised with my reception at Die Stal, and wish I could visit a little longer! Beautifully tidy, the people so friendly and the facilities fantastic.

Vars en positiewe plattelandse ervaring.

Jens het breedvoerig en baie doeltreffend met ons vooraf gekommunikeer. Toegangspaaie na Philippolis se toestand raak problematies (slaggate). Die Stal was fantasties opgradeer tot 'n fasiliteit wat alles bied vir besoekers. Die kleurvolle en pragtige ou meubels en ander oudhede en boeke skep 'n fantastiese atmosfeer. Die ontvangs was hartlik. Die personeel is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons het die aandete opsie gekies en was oorweldig met 'n heerlike, baie groot porsie boerekos. Die kragonderbrekings was ontwrigtend, maar genoegsame noodligte was voorsien. Die baie insiggewende boek oor Philippolis, geskryf deur die eienaar self, was boeiend en bied 'n wonderlike beeld van die dorp, sy geskiedenis, die mense, besienswaardighede plaaslik en in die omgewing. Ons beplan om weer die Stal te besoek om al die interessanthede te besoek. Ons bed het gehalte beddegoed gehad, maar die gekraak en raserige houtvloere was al wat ons gepla het. WiFi by die wooneenheid sal baie help. Dankie vir 'n puik verblyf!

Fresh and positive rural experience.

Jens communicated with us in advance in detail and very efficiently. Access roads to Philippolis' condition become problematic (potholes). The Stable has been fantastically upgraded to a facility that offers everything for visitors. The colorful and beautiful old furniture and other antiques and books create a fantastic atmosphere. The reception was warm. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We chose the dinner option and were overwhelmed with a delicious, very large portion of farmer's food. The power outages were disruptive, but sufficient emergency lights were provided. The very informative book about Philippolis, written by the owner himself, was fascinating and offers a wonderful picture of the town, its history, the people, attractions locally and in the area. We plan to visit the Stable again to visit all the attractions. Our bed had quality bedding, but the creaking and noisy wooden floors were all that bothered us. WiFi at the living unit will help a lot. Thanks for a great stay!

Ons het hier oornag, en vind die dorpie baie oulike en ryk met geskiedenis. Die gastehuis is baie stylvol en gerieflik; en die eienaar het self in die dorp groot geword, en is baie behulpsaam. Die kos van hul restaurant was ook tops en word sterk aanbeveel!

Privaatheid, rustigheid en ouwêreldse sjarme.

Jens, eienaar van Die Stal, het vooraf 'n hele klomp interessante en nuttige stukkies inligting oor Philippolis en die akkommodasie, asook die beste paaie om daar te kom, aangestuur. Verder het hy gereeld met ons kontak gemaak om ons op hoogte te hou van ons verblyf. Die Stal-huisie is vol interessante, antieke stukke en publikasies. Tydens beurtkrag, was daar flitse beskikbaar en enige probleempies is vinnig uitsorteer. Die badkamers is ruim en skoon en die beddens baie gemaklik. Dit is definitief 'n plek om te gaan besoek as jy daarvan hou om ons kleiner dorpies te verken.

During load shedding, there were flashlights available and any problems were quickly sorted out. The bathrooms are spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. This is definitely a place to visit if you like to explore our smaller towns.

'n Wonderlike inrigting van 'n ou stal in gaste huisvesting.

So kreatief en smaaklik ingerig. Die gasvryheid en gepaardgaande diens is meer as wat te wagte was: die deurstuur van die week se verwagte temperature; kontakbesonderhede van moontlike aktiwiteit insluitende 'n ete op Ou-Kersaand.

Heerlike verblyf in Philippolis.

Gerieflike verblyf en troeteldiervriendelik! Groot omheinde erf vir ons honde om rond te beweeg. Ons het net een aand oorgeslaap op pad Kaapstad toe en is gul ontvang deur Madelein. Ons het uitgery Waterkloof toe en met ons terugkeer was daar lekkernye op die stoeptafel - heel onverwags en baie lekker! Ek sal weer oorbly met 'n volgende besoek en meer die area verken na die pragboek van Jens wat die geskiedenis uitbeeld.

Great stay in Philippolis.

Comfortable accommodation and pet friendly! Large fenced yard for our dogs to roam around. We only stayed one night on the way to Cape Town and were generously received by Madelein. We drove out to Waterkloof and on our return there were treats on the patio table - very unexpected and very tasty! I will stay again on a next visit and explore the area more after the wonderful book of Jens depicting the history.

Heerlike ervaring. Pragtige kunstige huisie vol ekstra bederfies.

Ons aankoms was klaar n bederf. Ons is hartlik ontvang met sjerrie en biltonghappies. Die gasheer-eienaar is vriendelik en professioneel. Die huis is absoluut kunstig met houtvloere en antieke meubels. Kunstig met soveel ekstra gemak en dinge. Daar was nartjies op die tafel en lekker beskuit. Klomp soorte koffie en tee en selfs my gunsteling Earl Grey tee. Die badkamer is prentjiemooi met 'n pootjiesbad. Die water is warm. Daar is 'n windpomp in die erf. Ek wens regtig alle mense kon hierdie heerlikheid ervaar.

Lovely experience. Beautiful, artistic house full of extra spoils.

Our arrival was already a treat. We received a warm welcome with sherry and biltong snacks. The host-owner was friendly and professional. The house is absolutely artistic with wooden floors and antique furniture. Artistic with so much extra comfort and things. There were naartjies on the table and nice rusks. A lot of types of coffee and tea and even my favourite, Earl Grey tea. The bathroom is picture-perfect with a slipper bath. The water is warm. There is a windmill on the farm. I truly wish all people could experience this loveliness.

Baie oulike plek, netjies en rustig.

Ek het baie lekker gebly in die kothuis. Die ligging (op die rand van die dorp) is ideaal om mens die "plaasgevoel" te gee sonder dat jy kilometers ver hoef te ry op rowwe grondpaaie om jou bestemming te bereik. Die uitsig, sterrehemel en lekker kuierstoep maak van dit 'n unieke en baie aangename belewenis.

Very cute place, neat and quiet.

I had a great time staying in the cottage. The location (on the edge of town) is ideal for giving you the "farm feel" without having to drive miles on rough dirt roads to reach your destination. The view, starry sky and pleasant patio make it a unique and very pleasant experience.

Gasvryheid in die oortreffende trap. Netjiese skoon verblyf in ‘n mooi omgewing.

Die plattelandse besoek het ons teruggeneem na vergange tye. Die Opstal is kunstig ingerig en die tuin ‘n regte oase. Aandete, soos vooraf gereël was smaaklik en vullend. Die gasheer, Jens Friis, en sy span het ons gehelp om gemaklik en ontspanne ons reis verder te geniet. Linne en handdoeke spierwit en huisie netjies en skoon. Die teerpad soontoe is ook in ‘n goeie toestand.

The tarmac road there is also in good condition.

Stille vrede.

Ons het tydens ons reis van Bloemfontein na Kaapstad hier oorgeslaap. 'n Effense afwyking van die N1, maar die paaie wat ná en van Philippolis lei, was goed in stand gehou ten tye van ons besoek. Jens het persoonlik kom groet en saam deur die huis gestap om te verduidelik waar alles is. 'n Uiters ervare gasheer met in diepte kennis van die omgewing (soos gesien kan word in die koffietafelboek in die huis wat met sy naam as outeur pryk). Die Stal is 'n pragtig gerestoureerde gebou, ruim en skoon met al die nodige geriewe vir selfsorg. Die kraakwit linne en dik duvets oor elke bed is 'n lekker bederf. Die hoogtepunt is egter die stilte en vrede wat ervaar word wanneer mens laatmiddag op die stoep kan sit en kyk hoe die laatmiddaglug in 'n sterrenag verander. Ons beveel Die Stal beslis aan!

This review is being shown in its original language.

Quiet peace.

We stayed here during our journey from Bloemfontein to Cape Town. A slight departure from the N1, but the roads leading to and from Philippolis were well maintained at the time of our visit. Jens personally came to say hello and walked through the house together to explain where everything was. An extremely experienced host with in-depth knowledge of the area (as can be seen in the coffee table book in the house which bears his name as author). The Stable is a beautifully restored building, spacious and clean with all the necessary facilities for self-catering. The crisp white linen and thick duvets over each bed are a nice treat. The highlight, however, is the silence and peace experienced when one can sit on the porch late in the afternoon and watch the late afternoon sky turn into a starry night. We definitely recommend Die Stal!

Die Stal is perfect. It is clean and has ample space. We enjoyed sundowners on the stoep and had a lekker braai. Would highly recommend this spot.

Met die windpomp in die tuin sal ons Die Stal altyd onthou. Alhoewel die kombuis/leefarea aandag benodig, het die feit dat ons lekker kon slaap, daarvoor opgemaak. Knus met reën op die sinkdak was spesiaal.

It is a unique, spacious old farmhouse that makes you long for your grandma and grandpa. Very friendly reception.

Pragtige ou huis, baie rustig en skoon - alles op plek.

Ons is dadelik vriendelik ontvang, Mnr Friis baie aangenaam, het ons na blyplek vergesel, alles verduidelik en ons rustig gelos om te rus. Kan nie vir beter vra nie.

Beautiful old house, very quiet and clean - everything in place.

We were immediately received kindly, Mr Friis very pleasant, accompanied us to our accommodation, explained everything and left us to rest. Can't ask for better.

Goed toegeruste selfsorgverblyf in karaktervolle plattelandse dorpshuis.

Ná 'n lang dag op die pad terug vanaf ons vakansie in die Kaap, het ons die middag ongeveer 18:00 by Die Stal gearriveer. Jens, die eienaar, het ons persoonlik kom ontmoet, die ligte kom aanskakel, en seker gemaak dat ons gemaklik en veilig is. Die huis is goed toegerus, en die huislike atmosfeer met mooi antieke meubels het ons dadelik laat tuis voel. Jens het ons ook verwys na 'n plaaslike restaurant, wat binne stapafstand van Die Stal was, en waar ons vriendelike diens, uitstekende kos in 'n mooi tuin onder die Vrystaatse sterrehemel kon geniet. Voorwaar 'n rustige en wonderlike verblyf ervaring by Die Stal!

Well-equipped self-catering accommodation in a characterful rural townhouse.

After a long day on the way back from our holiday in the Cape, we arrived at Die Stal around 18:00 in the afternoon. Jens, the owner, came to meet us personally, turned on the lights, and made sure we were comfortable and safe. The house is well equipped, and the homely atmosphere with beautiful antique furniture made us feel right at home. Jens also referred us to a local restaurant, which was within walking distance of Die Stal, and where we could enjoy friendly service, excellent food in a beautiful garden under the Free State starry sky. Truly a peaceful and wonderful stay experience at Die Stal!

Unieke, sielsverrykende plek, rustigheid onder die sterre, perfek na 'n lang dag van die Kaap af.

As jy ietsie soek wat nie op die hoofpad is nie en waar jy die stilte kan hoor en voel is Die Stal 'n perfekte keuse, sou bitter graag meer as net een nag wou oorbly. Pragtige woning, geselligheid van die eienaar was fantasties, dadelik skoene uitgeskop en net vertoef. Heerlik gebraai. Sal vir seker weer daar stop. Dankie!

Unique, soul-enriching place, tranquility under the stars, perfect after a long day away from the Cape.

If you are looking for something that is not on the main road and where you can hear and feel the silence Die Stal is a perfect choice, would really like to stay more than just one night. Beautiful home, friendliness of the owner was fantastic, immediately kicked off shoes and just lingered. Delicious fried. Will stop there again for sure. Thank you!
