A group of 2 couples decided to head to Orange before the mad rush of the Food and Wine Festival that commences in October.
Ornage was very pleasant 4 hour drive from sydney (stopped at the famous Gourmet Cafe at Leura Village for a coffee fix). We planned our trip so that we were at Belgravia Union Bank Pub for lunch. Awesome place, great prices, service, & wine!
Left the car there and walked to the B&B. A note from owner Neil explaining how to let ourselves in.
The B&B: a whole solid house to yourself which comfortably accommodates 2 couples, each with it's own private entrance and ensuite. 2 decent sized private bedrooms set at the back of the house, very well presented. Aircon, towels, Austar, great bed, sheets & pillows, tea coffee facilities, there's also washing machine, iron/ironing board if you need it, hot brekky thrown in, all for $175 per room per night. National St is very wide, quiet, leafy and borders a gorgeous park.
Owner Neil was very professional yet casual, we all felt very relaxed in his home. He stays in the 3rd bedroom (separated by a door and hallway). He gave us great ideas as to where to go in terms of wineries and food. He suggested that we try Lolli Redini for dinner. Tip - try not to each too much for lunch coz this place is seriously rich, & we are 4 fit men who love to eat good food! There are LOADS of great places to eat here and we bought cases of wine from 2 wineries.
Give this B&B a go, it's a fraction of the price than the surrounding places, with more room, intimate service, without invading one's privacy. The ONLY recommendation I would suggest is having underfloor heating in the bathrooms (the bathroom does have overhead heating lamps).
We will definately come to Orange again next Autumn, it's a change from the Hunter Valley where its getting quite pricey and way too commercial.
