My girlfriend and I recently visited Stellenbosch on our trip to South Africa. We stayed at this bed and breakfast over the new year and we enjoyed our stay (except for all the gunfire at midnight!!). There was two pools to relax at and to do a spot of sun bathing at and the gardens are very nice. It was... More

we had originally booked this place for just one night, arriving from Johannesburg by plane and traveling further along the garden route. however, after waking up, having some coffee by the pool and a lovely breakfast and a nice chat with the owners, we immediately wanted to extend our stay. unfortunately there were no rooms available for the next night,...

We stayed 2 nights at this excellent guesthouse in wonderful surroundings with view to the mountains. The guesthouse with 4 spacious apartments are separated from the main house, where the tasteful breakfast are served . Nice pool just outside you room and free wifi in the pool area and in the room. The host family are very friendly and is... More

A great, quiet place with comfortable lodges, a huge garden with 2 pools and stunning views. Breakfast is on the veranda of the friendly ( German) owners house with a great view on the estate. A bit far away from Stellenbosch (10 min by car). Good wifi and safe parking.

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
