                          Very clean and met our requirements for the overnight stay. Johann friendly and helpful.

                          It was a good stop over and highly recommended to all needing a break with travelling.

                          We had a great stay at the Purple House. The accommodation was comfortable, with all the amenities one would expect. The owners proved to be warm and hospitable and we enjoyed our evening with them very much!

                          The only positive thing is that the owner is friendly. The place needs some TLC (Tender loving care) and a lot of cleaning. We found used soap in the bathrooms! Too many things to mention but I would not stay there again for even half the price. Luckily I was there for one night only.Establishment Response:I am sorry you feel that way that you do. You knew from the outset that the cottage is a backpacker style cottage with normal sheets and all the basics that you need is supplied to you at a budget price. I allow kids that are able to sleep with their parents to stay for free, but not thos...

                          Johan is a very interesting and pleasant person. He seems to work hard at running the B&B almost single-handedly. He made me a very tasty breakfast in the morning. I stayed in the Pierneef room which was very clean and comfortable. Loved the bed! Not having DSTV at home, it was a treat to have the full bundle in the room.
