The food served during dinner compares with those of the best restaurants in Pretoria. Gregg and Deon are two wonderful hosts who attend to the detail of the needs of their clients from the...

The Bokmakierie guest house is the best stay over in Smthfield. The rooms are well decorated and very spacious. The food was the best > The 3 coarse dinner that was prepared by our two hosts, Gregg and Deon, was 5 star and definitely worth it.

We were totally overwhelmed by the welcoming hosts Gregg and Deon, superb dining with a spotlessly clean happy environment. We were very lucky to also meet another lovely couple who have stayed there before which made it so enjoyable. Lovely warm blankets bedwarmers and nougat for bedtime treat. We would definitely recommend this stopover in Smithfield.

After travelling through South Africa we love to remember our fantastic stay at " Bokmakierie" (25.03.2017). Nice room, very friendly hosts and delicious breakfast. Unfortunately we couldn't stay longer. A lot of thanks to Gregg and Deon for the excellent dinner and the excited conversation. May your dreams come true.

Please do not miss the opportunity to spend time at this oasis and to get to know Gregg and Deon. They will spoil you rotten and then do it again just for good measure. All this and much more in little old Smithfield.

The accommodation is very neat and comfortable with very tasteful décor. Gregg and Deon go out of their way to make one feel welcome, e.g. welcoming you with a nice cup of tea on the verandah when you arrive. Dinner and breakfast are absolutely delicious with top class presentation.

This is a super place to overnight at when travelling the long road between the Eastern Cape and Gauteng. It made the driving seem less arduous and more pleasurable and is worth considering by anyone who has to travel that way.

Guests are welcome to enjoy private stoep areas to relax on, read a book or simply enjoy the beautiful southern Free State scenery surrounding our beautiful village. The view from our veranda is over the village to the surrounding mountains. You can walk around the village, climb the mountain or choose a hiking trail on a nearby farm, or just relax, read a novel or unwind and recharge. Facilities for golf, tennis and bowls are available. There is game viewing in the area and farm walks to view rock art can be arranged. Places of historical interest may also be visited. Deon and Gregg purchased Bokmakierie Guesthouse to allow our innate passion for people, food, service and story-telling to gain expression. Having lived for many years in the cosmopolitan city of Johannesburg, Bokmakierie Guesthouse and the beautiful surrounds of the southern Free State has unleashed our creativity, sense of purpose and desire to offer guests a haven of tranquillity to pause at, recharge and then to continue. Bokmakierie Guesthouse offers delightful breakfasts which are inclusive of the daily tariff as well as creative 2-course or 3-course evening dinners (offered to our overnight guests by prior arrangement), which pack a punch of flavours using local ingredients, within a relaxed ambiance around our communal table and crackling fireplace.
