Found the Black Sheep Inn through other rave reviews, and booked for a Friday Saturday night winter weekend, end of May. Located about 10 minutes drive from Orange CBD, and provides easy access to local wineries, restaurants, walking and cycling trails. The shearing shed has been converted, into a warm and welcoming B&B whilst preserving it's working heritage; a great... More

Loved shocking our travelling friends, by arriving at the country woolshed, especially when they assumed we'd be staying in some 5 star establishment! What a surprise to find the decor, ambience and general standard of accommodation so perfect. We are in the hospitality business, so are very fussy, and set high standards, so a real treat to be greeted by... More

We left our bookings until quite late and ended up finding Black Sheep Inn. It seemed like it was a little out of the way, and we had never stayed in B&B accommodation before, so we were not sure what to expect. We found it to be barely a ten minute drive from town, but just enough to reach the... More

Had a really wonderful time! The breakfasts were spectacular. The rooms were spacious yet cosy. Helen made our stay comfortable. Her knowledge of the area was very helpful with a local touch. Can't wait to come back to Orange to stay here again.

We had the best long weekend in Orange staying at the Black Sheep. Helen's hospitality is exceptional and all the guests staying in the other rooms were lovely and friendly. Breakfasts were yummy and the sleep was very comfortable. We'll definitely be coming back here when we return.

It was our second time at the Black Sheep Inn (see Reinhold F "Great to be Back" and once again Helen didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were back home. The fire was going, the other guests were friendly and engaging and generally we felt very comfortable. The drive into Orange CBD is easy and... More

We were the first customers to visit the Black Sheep Inn when it opened 5 years ago and finally arranged another trip with a group of friends. We were pleased to see that the property retained its charm and relaxed country atmosphere. The communal aspect is great and the couples in the other two rooms were good fun. Helen is... More

Black Sheep Inn has potential but not for us unfortunately. We booked three nights here many months ago expecting to spend a birthday long weekend surrounded by the tranquility of the Australian Bush. There are 5 bedrooms so one would expect a possible four other couples to be there at the same time, but this was not the case. The... More

Another trip to Orange and another stay at Black Sheep Inn. Helen is a gem and so is the property. Fantastic ambience with all the original pieces but modern day comfort. Love the old Coalbrookdale cast iron fireplace which really pumps out the heat. The focal point is the wool classing table which we gather around for breakfast. Nothing is... More
