A wonderful, inexpensive stay at BlueGum house. Our hosts, Kitty & Johan (& various cats n dogs) were friendly & accommodating, The rooms were spotless, beds comfy, and the breakfast served at the Purple House was delicious. Johan is the walking Smithfield directory, who offered us a great dining venue as well as a couple of places to visit. Looking forward to visiting you all again at the Platteland Preview 2015. So good to meet you both and thanks again for a great restful stopover!Best of luck with the finishing of Blue Gum House, it's going to be superb!

Purple people pleaser An interesting house to stay at. Johann is very accommodating and easy to get along with. The food was good and there was more than enough for the meal. I like the fact that Johann joined me for the meals and kept company. I had a good hot shower and it was very quiet so I had a good night's rest.

Ons gesin van 5 het heerlik oorgebly by Purple House. Die fliek in die nuwe "movie-house" was baie goed. Johan het ons bederf met heerlike bobotie vir aandete en die ontbyt was ook 'n groot bederf. Baie dankie Johann.
We had a very interesting stay at purple house. Had it all to ourselves for both nights, surrounded by artworks. Johan was never far away, always there to see that we were comfortable and not in lacking in needs. Dinner was out of this world, very healthily prepared and reasonably priced. All in all a very enjoyable stay.
Our stay was a unique and colourful experience. Our host, a very friendly and helpful man that made us feel right at home. If we come that way again we will definately stay over again.
We had a great social evening at the Purple House. Nice break in a long journey! Definitely see Johan again when opportunity permits!
We stay at Purple House as a stopover on our way to our final destination. It was perfect for what we needed. The room was simple and clean with lots of art work to admire throughout the house. Johann is a good, friendly host and let us use the whole house even though we were just 2. Breakfast was very good.
Friendly though definitely funky, this old style house, painted fuschia with orange pillars, is a veritable treasure trove of art and objects, many for sale. The small town offers little light pollution for clear skies and star gazing.
We had a great stay at the purple house. Johan let us use the whole house, the kids had loads of space to play. He was very friendly and prepared us a lovely breakfast. It is quite an arty place, like Johan himself. He even gave us a little guitar concert in the evening. We will definitely visit him again.
We stayed at the Purple on our way to our holiday destination. If you are looking for a roomy place with all the basics and a good breakfast - go here!
We had a great stay and were received warmly by Johann Greef. Will certainly stay there again.
My family that stayed at the Purple House Guest House seemed to be very happy with the accommodation and Mr. Greeff. Thank you for making them so welcome!
We enjoyed our stay at Purple House Guest House. It was a welcome break after our long trip from Johannesburg. For budget accommodation it was pretty decent. The hospitality Johann showed was very pleasant and helpful. The food was also rather tasty. Thank you.
Very relaxing atmosphere, friendly host, good food. A historical building with lots of potential to become the most popular B&B in the Freestate.
The guest house is situated in a beautiful setting, surrounded by peace and quiet. The house itself has beautiful art and interesting items. The one area though that needs attention in in the preparation, serving and organization surrounding meal times. Only 1 salt and pepper shaker for all guests to share, no coffee or juices offered with breakfast and supper, kids not 100% taken into consideration with meals.
An unexpected delight in a small town in the southern Free State. The Purple House is a curious mix of the contemporary and nostalgia. Johann is an intruiging person who welcomes you as if you are one of his family. An interesting pit stop... Comfortable bed, hot shower, good food (catered for vegetarians).

Comment: Thank you so very much for a wonderful overnight stay at your Purple House. The two rooms that our family stayed in was beautiful and funky. The en-suites were great and the food outstanding. I would recommend your establishment to everybody! We will certainly stay there again in the future, Johann. Jenny
