About Nick's Place - Guest House and Restaurant

Halfway between Johannesburg and East London, you'll find the historic hamlet of Smithfield. It is a well-known stopover for travellers commuting on the N6 and the proud home of Nick's Place. A charming guest house and restaurant, Nick's Place boasts all the comforts that will have you feeling right at home.

Nick’s Place offers accommodation in three luxuriously appointed double en-suite bedrooms, all containing a TV, electric blankets and heaters for those chilly Free State nights. Our guests enjoy the Victorian charm and comfort of three uniquely decorated cosy rooms. Brass, iron, oak, maple or pine furniture, wooden floors and high ceilings recall a turn-of-the-century look and feel, and each room is separate and private.

Nick's Place also offers a self-catering, pet-friendly cottage, set apart in a fully-fenced, private garden. It has its own fully equipped kitchen, with outside braai facilities, and comfortably sleeps two adults and two children. The cottage is ideal for travellers with dogs.

We also offer laundry services, a Wi-Fi hotspot area and our staff are happy to take messages. With a large selection of reasonably priced home-cooked meals, Nick's Place is Smithfield's one-stop home from home. Put your feet up, and relax at Nick's Place.

                  What a super guest house! Fabrice was a friendly host and we just loved the dogs (three big ones, so be prepared), who were well mannered. Our room was very comfortable and clean and the electric blankets were a great bonus, as it was quite chilly in the evening. Frabrice made a superb breakfast in the morning, and a large selection of cereal, yogurt, muesli and the like was available as well. He also had good historical knowledge of the town when we asked questions. A super location for stop-overs on road trips. I would 100% recommend Nick's Place.

                  Welcoming hosts, comfortable well-sized room and great bed, relaxed atmosphere with good conversation amongst like-minded minded guests, excellent dinner with warm log - fires lit in bar/lounge and restaurant. 10 out of 10 overnight stay!

                  Smithfield has an amazing, colourful and interesting artist by the name of Sue Rosie who built her own mud house from the soil, clay and straw on her property. It is one of the main attractions in the town and although it is still a work in...

                  The Museum is only about a 10 minute walk from the start of the mountain hiking trail and a wonderful place to see how the old lived in our area. Smithfield was first founded in 1848 as a church centre on the farm Waterval, owned by CS Halse. As...
