We stayed at the guest house on our wedding night and it was fantastic. The room was clean and the jet bath amazing. The honeymoon accesories made the evening perfect. Breakfast was also delicious with good service and friendly hosts.

Our family of four visited the Orion guest house in October 2015. We stayed in the self catering unit. The personnel is friendly, and the unit were neat and clean. We found the interior to be a bit dated. Overall we had a good stay. On the down side, there are parrots who are kept next to the bedroom window,... More

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
