Can't be faulted; a real find! A beautiful 'settler style' house set in lovely gardens with pool and 'braai', it has 14 comfortable rooms. Together with wonderful hospitality and generous breakfast, our 2 night stay was most enjoyable. Recommended!

Room Tip: Together with outbuildings, there are about 14 rooms in total. We stayed in the main house with open...

This is a beautiful little B&B with large rooms and very luxurious bathrooms. The bed is a little small for two full sized people, but the breakfast is fantastic. The operators of the B&B are super friendly and helpful. They gave us good information on local restaurants. This place is not walking distance to restaurants or attractions so you need to have transportation. If you are in Oudtshoorn, this is a good choice.

We enjoyed 4 wonderful evenings in Oudtshoorn and stayed at this B&B. breakfasts were excellent with a variety to choose from and the "vetkoeke" were brilliant. The location is very central - close to town centre and the restaurants. Staff were very helpful in providing guidance of different places to go e.g. Restaurants the locals visit and the waterfalls to visit. Beautiful grounds which is very peaceful.
The rooms were clean but the cleaning staff were a bit forgetful - not clearing the bar fridge of items left by previous guests

Exceptional value for money!! This 4-star establishment combines country charm with city excellence. The rooms are spacious, well decorated with air-conditioning as well as additional heating and electric blankets for those unforgiving cold Karoo nights. Each time we visit Adley House it co-incides with a sporting event. So the hearty country breakfast becomes a highlight of our days there. The garden, with its 2 pristine swimming pools, is meticulously cared for, providing a welcome recovery oasis after a busy sporting day. Hilda & her capable staff always offer the warmest Karoo hospitality.

Room Tip: Some rooms only have a shower. Be specific if you prefer a bath or both a bath and shower.

we stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was large and clean and had some nice touches like fresh flowers and candles to burn, a fridge and mini bar. Breakfast was outside on a small terrace and there was plenty of choice of cold items and cooked breakfast to order. The gardens surounding the house were beautiful and very well kept with lots of seating and sun loungers and 2 small pools. we highly recommend staying there!

After driving around Oudtshoorn looking for accommodation we stumbled across this beautiful and relaxing little gem. The entrance is through a beautifully manicured garden into reception where we found a very helpful lady. The price was very reasonably (Infact too cheap for what we got), the room was a bit old and flowery but it was clean and gave us everything we needed for an over night stay. We found a fantastic restaurant just 5 minutes walk away called Nostalgia! Breakfast was served outside overlooking the very picturesque gardens, a very relaxing way to start your day! Value for money!
