The Purple House is a funky, laid back guest house with air-conditioning in some of our rooms and,  FREE Wi-Fi to all guests. We offer accommodation for up to 16 people. The Purple House in Smithfield is one of the oldest and now-a-days most funkiest, grooviest guest houses in the Free State. This Guest House is run by myself, Johann Greeff, and I am always available. Here I do not pretend to be 5 stars, but I do know the importance of offering nice rooms, great service and friendliness.

Our golf course was established in 1900 by British soldiers and today offers a great test of skill.  The 2nd hole quite amazing as you play towards an island.

Nice museum in town.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Purple House on two occasions. The first in 2016 with friends and the second time in May this year when I returned to this beautiful country with my Son to embark on a big road trip. I can honestly say that Johann is the perfect host. The accommodation is very comfortable, Johann's culinary skills are superb and all combined, presents excellent value for money. I will certainly return to this wonderfully quirky bed and breakfast the next time I come back to South Africa. I promise, if you stay at the Purple House you will not be disappointed.

The host will leave you wanting to come back to this stunning, quaint guest house. Insist om a serenade while having breakfast - he is a star!
