Pragtige omgewing en interessante, skoon, gemaklike en mooi behuising.

Purple House is 'n baie oulike verbeeldingryke plekkie. Ons het 2 keer daar oorgeslaap. Kamers is baie interessanr, netjies en volledig ingerig. Ons het teëspoed met ons kar gehad oppad na ons bestemming en Johan het uit die pad gegaan om ons daarmee te help. Hy is vriendelik en behulpsaam en meer as bereid om die ekstra myl te loop. Sal definitief weer daar oorslaap en dit dit verseker aanbeveel.

The customer service was awesome.

Johann went out of his way to accommodate us. My children came down from Bloemfontein and we came up from East London to meet there for a surprise birthday for my husband. Johann went out of his way, cooked us dinner and breakfast himself (we requested meals ahead of time) and it was delicious. Very clean and the beds were comfortable.

Gemaklik en outentiek.

Ek is in n ander kamer geplaas as waarvoor ek bespreek het. Geen Wi-Fi of air-con soos geadverteer, tog gemaklik en netjies.

Purple House B&B and Self catering's response

Dankie vir die resensie. Dis jammer dat ek 'n konstruksie probleem gehad het in die bespreekte kothuis en dat ek julle alternatiewe akkommodasie moes aanbied. Verskoning daarvoor. Dis beter om alternatiewe voor te stel as om mense te laat bly erens wat nie heeltemal gerestoreer is nie. Terwyl die alternatiewe kothuis nie lugreëling en Wi-Fi het nie, is daar ander positiewe wat op maak vir dit. Johann

Fantastic. Johan is the most accommodating of hosts and we felt really at home.

Johan made us feel really special. We had an American who was a very difficult person with us, but Johan handled him with aplomb and courtesy. The atmosphere at the Purple House is relaxing, fun and homely. Beds very comfortable and rooms large. Food was great - thanks to Johan's cooking!

Very disappointing.

I was so looking forward to staying at this accommodation as it seems very quirky and "out-the-box" on their website. But alas. Cleanliness is a real issue.

Purple House B&B and Self catering's response

Hi Verushka,
We are surprised by your review especially as we asked you, in the morning as we ask all our guests if you feel that there is anything that I need to do to improve my place. Your answer was that everything was great. We do appreciate you staying over with us and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Skoon, netjies en sentraal, aandagtige gasheer.

Johan is 'n aandagtige en vriendelike gasheer wat na jou enige benodigheid of vraag sal omsien. Het op 'n Sondagaand, wanneer alle restaurante toe was, vir ons 'n heerlike aandete gemaak en boonop gewys wat 'n talentvolle musikant hy is. Die kamers was ruim, skoon en baie gemaklik met goeie beddens en beddegoed.

The website picture is awesome, I think that Johan has a great venue. Could have a bit of extra cleaning done. The cottage we were in was the basic accommodation with some serious TLC it could be great.

Purple House B&B and Self catering's response

Hi again Angela,
Thanks for the review! The cottage is my backpacker style accommodation and it is basic yes. I am intending to renovate it within the next few weeks. It was lovely hosting you and next time you come there will be good alterations done to the structure and new ceilings will be put in. Have a great year!

'n Vriendelike en hartlike verwelkoming.

Smithfield is die dorpie waar ek grootgeword het. En met Johan se gasvryheid kon ek terugkeer na die huis waarin ek amper 56 jaar gelede gebly het. Wat 'n wonderlike ervaring vir my! Johan het 'n ongelooflike vermoë om jou tuis te laat voel met 'n koppie vars boeretroos. Dankie Johan, ons sal beslis weer by jou tuisgaan.

Dit was n heerlike ervaring. Pragtige omgewing en vriendelike mense.

Ons het in die Geco Cottage gebly. Gerieflik, skoon en privaat. johann het seker gemaak dat ons alles het wat nodig is om ons verblyf so lekker en gerieflik moontlik te maak. Hy het heelwat oor dorp en omgewing vertel asook my roete so laat beplan om ander besienswaardighede oppad nie miste loop nie. Baie dankie vir tuiste weg van die huis.
