“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We stayed here for one night and from when we arrived we felt very welcome. The house was lovely and our room was very large. The house is walking distance to many restaurants, shops and banks. The owners were very helpful and made suggestions on places to visit. The breakfast was very nice and there was a honesty bar in the breakfast room. The pool looked inviting but the weather was not warm enough for us to use. I definately recommend this guest house...

We loved walking up to the front door and the delicious scent of the Frangipani tree greeted us! This was a lovely refined guest house, our room was spotless and the breakfast and pool area very relaxing. Our hostess and her daughter went out of their way to be helpful and make us feel at home. They provided great suggestions for dinner places and both evenings we were totally happy with where we were sent! The location is very central and as we stated, one of the best value places we stayed at during our 2 and a half weeks in South Africa.

Room Tip: Front room appeared to be the nicest with large bay windows.

Thank you Thea & Ora for an amazing time. We spent Easter week-end at Villa Ora. Spoiled with chocolates and champagne in our room on arrival ( was our wedding anniversary). The breakfast is excellent served with the warmest of Oudtshoorn hospitality. Will definitely recommend this guesthouse.

Villa Ora is a beautiful house with nice, clean and spacious rooms. It is right in the center of Oudtshoorn. The owners are very friendly and make you feel at home. They gave us great advices about where to go. The garden is beautiful with a nice and big pool. Would absolutely recommend it!

My husband and I spent one night at Villa Ora during our 3 weeks travelling in SA. This is the real deal in giving you a real taste of life in this beautiful country. Cannot fault anything at all at Villa Ora - price,food,hospitality,pool. Give it a try when in Oudtshoorn you will be tempted to delay your travelling and stay longer. Eleanor and Gordon, Scotland

Room Tip: room at back of house with direct access to large pool and beautiful garden

Villa Ora is a beautiful house full of character and very conveniently located. However, as a four star B&B, I felt that some things could have been better - as I am, after all expecting the best from such a highly acclaimed stay.One would expect bathsheets rather than standard bath towels, a kettle with coffee and tea in the room to allow for early morning waking in pj's which no other guest would like to be subjected to, and a television placed with easy viewing so as not to stiffen one's neck whilst trying to watch the rather limited selection of programmes.
Would I stay again ? Not before trying other venues which would satisfy more.
