“Beautiful escape”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

My husband and I had a blissful weekend at this beautful B&B 13th/14th July.

Annette & David's attention to even the smallest detail was evident from even before we arrived. On the way to Orange, I telephoned to check on directions and briefly mentioned that we would be stopping to have a coffee before arriving. Within a couple of minutes, Annette rang back and recommended a lovely patisserie in Bathurst, where we had a very tasty lunch. Very much unexpected & appreciated.

The rooms themselves are the best we have ever stayed in.... even the fussiest person could not find fault. They are spacious, comfortable and contain everything required for a relaxing, romantic weekend escape, right down to the chocolates and nougat left beside the bed each day. The view from the rooms just adds to the whole experience.

We booked the accommodation/ restaurant /wineries package available and needless to say, both restaurants were top class with excellent food, as was breakfast each morning. David & Annette were very friendly and helpful, making you feel extremely welcome in their home. Will definitely be visiting again!!

My wife and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at Arancia B&B after a 2 week journey around NSW and Victoria, with Orange being the last stop of our trip. We definitely feel like we left the best accommodation until last. Arancia was simply charming. Set in a quiet, scenic, country location, Arancia is not far from the centre of Orange, but far enough away that you feel like you have truly escaped to somewhere magical. The room we stayed in (Parker Suite) was impeccably maintained, modern and comfortable. The breakfasts were incredible, highlighted by local and home-made produce (stewed local fruits, sourdough toast, freshly squeezed local orange juice etc). David and Annette are excellent hosts and are both very knowledgeable about Orange and the surrounding area, and are only too happy to offer helpful and friendly advice. Thank you to them both for such a great stay.

I have stayed at Arancia a number of times now. And I have to say I'm a little fussy - but Arancia didn't disappoint. The rooms are elegant and spacious and the breakfasts are beautiful. The service is wonderful. It's not to far away from the centre of town, but just far enough to be tranquil. I would highly recommend it - the rooms are modern and comfortable. It's a bit like a nice city hotel room, but in homely country surroundings. It's not like your usual B&B where it feels like staying in someone's house. The rooms are very separate, and have their own entries from the outside. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Orange.

There are very few places I've been where everything is just right, where I haven't thought how I'd do things differently, even if only in subtle ways. Arancia is one of those places.

Everything is just perfect - the hosts are engaging, warm and friendly - they know and love the area and are keen to share their knowledge and enthusiasm. The accommodation is well designed and the furnishings are tasteful. The location itself, set amidst rolling hills, feels like something out of another age - its simplicity settles the mind and soothes the soul. And the breakfasts - well, they've been lauded in this place already.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. For us, Arancia alone makes Orange a destination we keep returning to.

Room Tip: All rooms are great - though we've never tried the Scots room

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!
