We had an amazing time at Orangeville for a friend's wedding. The hosts were very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was fantastic and we enjoyed their dog. The rooms were fantastic, wish we had more time to stay there and in the region. Highly recommend.

Everything about this place was amazing! We stayed for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon/ attending a friends wedding nearby. Hardy and his wife couldn't do enough for us, including picking us up from wedding at near midnight! The grounds of the guesthouse complex are fabulous, large open lawns with 2 swimming pools, including showers, and hammocks to sit... More

This wonderfully quaint series of chalets are nestled in the middle of vineyards and green horse paddocks. The property has charming grounds with a huge expanse of lawn, swimming pool and BBQ area. We felt totally relaxed in the isolation of this rural charm but yet 2 minutes up the road are some of the best restaurants in Cape Town.... More

My wife and I recently booked the Giraffe guest house as this property was located very near a wedding we were attending. Unfortunately, our 5 night stay there was plagued by numerous problems. Among the issues was a running toilet and a clogged bathroom sink, which we thought should have been noticed when cleaning after the last guests. The same... More

Stayed here with a few friends at the end of March and absolutely loved it. The owners are very nice and super accommodating. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere nice to stay in the area. Rent a car if you're going, cabs are a little hard to come by.

The owners were amazing, helped us pick out which vineyards we wanted to go to. Extremely knowledgable. They then offered to drive us to the 5 we picked! All in one day. Busy day to say the least but wouldn't have done it any other way. They gave us amazing dinner suggestions as well as a shuttle back to Capetown... More

This place offers great personalized service from the friendly management. It is small scale, and offers only bed & breakfast, which was excellent, and served on a beautiful terrace. The Guest House is in a great location for wine-tasting tours (book in advance during peak periods), with proximity to e.g. Thelema, Tokara, and Oldenberg. There are also nice lunch and... More

Admittedly we really should have done our research before booking this guesthouse as it was too far out of Stellenbosch for us as we weren't driving. Completely our mistake. With next to no taxi services willing to drive out to Kylemore we were completely dependent on the shuttle service of the owner and when he was able to drive us.... More

My second time at this guesthouse, and they will definitely see me again. You can't get better value for money. Peaceful and super relaxing with awesome hosts. Seriously can't think of anything that wasn't perfect
