We stayed here for one night on our way to the Panorma Route. Beautiful building. Our room was nice, a lot of space! A Bathroom with a bath. The room was clean and neat. Breakfast was good as well. I would stay here again next time.

This beautifully finished guest house with excellent service will really be a home away from home. The detail in their decor along with quiet surrounds and great food will really make for a comfortable stay.

23 of us arrived quite a bit later than expected after having been on the road for a while and stuck in a traffic jam, but they kept dinner waiting for us. We were very appreciative of this since we had 11 children in our group. Of course, the adults were happy to eat too! The rooms were quite nice,... More

My experience at The Orion was nothing but lavishly delightful. Service with a smile, great young host that makes you feel at home and caters to your every need, even after hours. I stayed in the executive suite - luxurious and spacious room with a large spa-bath in. The next morning breakfast was scrumptious and prepared fast. I really enjoyed... More

Beautiful decor and well kept inside and out. Friendly staff with greetings and smiles. The rooms are lovely, however I don't get the whole idea with the pebbles in the basin, kind of off-putting when toothpaste gets stuck on it. The heater in the bathroom is 'n big plus, especially during the winter! Even though the breakfast was delightful, they... More

If you need a weekend away and desires to be stuck in the early 80’s then maybe this is a good choice. Geez, the interior decoration in our room ( Self Catering, “Spica” ) is horrendous to say the least. Eish. I read the other reviews on this establishment too and agree with much of it. Our room, Spica, was... More

It was a bit of a shock to be shown to a room that led off the driveway and a disappointment to find Ricoffy sachets with Cremora as an offering on the coffee station in my room, but at least it was clean. My colleagues had some amusing experiences with bathrooms leading off kitchens, a hand basin in rather intimate... More

Let me start this by saying that I didn't actually get the chance to stay at the Orion. But I can completely understand why the previous reviewer would say that the host/owners of the Orion are not good. I was going to leave a review here that says that the guesthouse might have closed down and people are unaware of... More

We arrived at the guesthouse after a long trip by car, when we arrived there workers was busy painting and do renovations at the guesthouse the noise was so terrible that we decided to go to the mall for some quietness. The reception host had a bad attitude from the word go. We were woken up the next morning at... More
