Made a booking at this place for March 2015 and the confirmation indicated that a deposit of 50% was payable and which was due at least 14 days before arrival. On Sunday I received a bank SMS advising that an amount had been debited by Booksure. I immediately thought it was fraudulent (had 2 instances before) and phoned the number... More

We are disappointed with ourselves for not first reading these reviews before booking. We needed accommodation close to Molenvliet Estate for a family wedding and went online and booked Orange-Ville with high expectations as a 4 Star establishment. We are guest house owners as well in Knysna and charge half the rate charged by Orange-Ville so travelled down with high... More

Orangeville is a lovely, well-kept place with an amazing set of owners who truly know how to be hospitable. Located in a secure location in Kylemore, the grounds themselves are lovely enough to merit spending a lot of time at the guesthouse itself. However, it is near enough to great wineries and restaurants, as well as nature preserves. The most... More

Beautiful grounds, comfortable accommodation and the managers are very helpful. The room we stayed in was a little "tired" but I understand they are currently renovating some of the rooms. We unfortunately didn't have much of a chance to enjoy the property as we only spent one night and were out most of the evening. Breakfast is fantastic (no buffet)... More

This is not a typical guesthouse, which is an advantage - the rooms are scattered in a farm, and not in the owners' house (breakfast is served in the main house). The owners were very helpful and full of great advice. We were upgraded to a chalet (ordered a cottage), which was very nice. The bathroom window could not close... More

The venue is stunning! 25k square meters surrounded by mountains! The property is huge therefore there's space for enjoying nature. Besides it's quite safe and easy connected to Stellenbosch and Franschoek! The bathroom could be a little bit better, considering the wonderful venue and especially the price per night! That's the only "negative" feature. The cottage are nice and well... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Orangeville and had the most fantastic time. Reading the other reviews (in English as I don't understand german!) is a bit strange as it sounds like they stayed at a different guesthouse.we were travelling with our 9 month old baby and could not have been made to feel more welcome. We stayed in the... More

The location looks idyllic in the brochure, and in fact it is beautiful - two lovely pools, good sized room with its own patio area, beautiful scenery. However, for an expensive hotel the service let it down. We asked for ideas on where to go with our young daughter and were told to visit either Franschoek or Stellenbosch - I... More

As this was the last 2 nights of our honeymoon we decided to splash out on a really nice place. When we arrived the first impressions were very good, the property is in a fantastic location at the foot of a spectacular mountain, the room we stayed in was a long way from the main house and only had one...
