“Bliss”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We stayed here for a short break in winter of 2011.

Nothing, not a single thing, could be faulted.

We purchased a package that included meals at some local restaurants which were both excellent. The wineries were amazing and such a brilliant experience.

The breakfast was amazing.

Basically, I am running out of adjectives for how great this place was.

We stayed at Arancia for 4 nights in March 2012 and were totally delighted with everything about it. The accommodation is luxurious; the country setting is beautifully serene, and the hosts Annette & David excel at every single detail in running their B&B. The breakfasts they serve are scrumptious and the service they provide their guests is absolutely first-rate in every single way. We highly recommend a stay at this outstanding B&B!

Rooms- generous size, v.comfy bed and pillows, great shower,and loads of creamy biscuits...
The view is amazing, photos do not do it justice. Breakfast just lovely, my husband cleared out the poached pears bowl, and the poached eggs and sourdough were delicious.
Our hosts Annette and Dave put alot of energy into ensuring we had a great stay in orange with recommendations on food wine restaurants etc. we had a ball!

As soon as you walk into Arancia, David makes you feel very welcome and almost like an “old friend”. Nothing is too much trouble and he is really good at finding all the best places for you to visit in the area together with restaurants for the evening.

The rooms are extremely well appointed and all lookout over the hillsides and up towards Mount Canobolas. The bathroom is adequate with plenty of towels and cosmetics. In the room there is tea and coffee with a good supply of biscuits and chocolates.

Annette’s breakfasts are superb and the menu seems to extend to whatever you want. A lot of the products and in particular fresh fruit and juices are all local, many prepared by Annette and David.

Our stay at Arancia just got better and better, from the delicious breakfast to the chocolate by the bed each day. Its all the little touches at Arancia that make it special and memorable. Impeccably clean, cant fault the room or any of the premises. The hosts are so attentive, so helpful, they truly made our stay so simple. The views are outstanding, a lovely and relaxing place. If we are ever in orange again we will be sure to stay.

We have been to Arancia twice, January 2009 and November 2010 and will be heading back there this November... David and Annette are wonderful hosts, and at breakfast time be sure to bring an empty tummy as they like to fill it... The breakfasts are wonderful and really set you up for the days adventures around Orange
The accommodation is very comfortable and we enjoy watching the sun disappear over Mt Canobolos in the afternoon with a glass of sparkling wine and a few nibbles... Watching the bird life and the cows roaming the paddocks. Very Peaceful

Arancia is only a few minutes away from downtown Orange, but you feel as if you are so far away from civilisation.

On a hilltop a few minutes drive from the centre of Orange, Arancia is a well maintained and well appointed B and B offering spacious and comfortable rooms and panoramic views over the valleys below Mt. Canobolas. The hosts Annette and David, offer a warm welcome, plenty of local information and wonderful home cooked breakfasts to linger over as guests plan their days around the plethora of nearby attractions which include Orange itself with its wide leafy streets, elegant homes and parks, numerous wineries, some excellent restaurants, rolling countryside and pretty little towns full of colonial buildings and the odd gem such as Tonic restaurant at Millthorpe. The rooms at Arancia are spotless, featuring a large bathroom, a lounge area opening onto a sunny verandah and lawn with uninterrupted 180 degree views. Although quite close to the city, the setting is very rural and quiet.

Orange offers a wide range of commercial and recreational facilities and has become a dining destination for many through the well-known Lolli Redini, Union Bank and several winery restaurants which receive regular accolades (not to forget the forementioned Tonic). Many of the local wineries operate cellar doors which present opportunities to buy good but low volume wines which can be hard to source outside of the local area. Annette and David are closely involved in the community and can provide some helpful insights into dining and drinking options.

Orange is a great place to visit or a good base for venturing into adjacent regions and Arancia should be high on your list of potential places to stay.
