Adley House is a perfect place to stay whilst visiting Oudtshoorn. It's within walking distance of the main shopping/dining areas and offers excellent accommodation on a quiet road. The rooms are well furnished, clean and inviting and the breakfasts are substantial. The accommodation was offered as an alternative to my first choice and I did not regret it.

It is a beautiful guest house, we stayed only one night however it was cozy, nice garden and great breakfast. The only issue was the wifi that was hard to access from the room however at the breakfast room it worked.

Adley House is in a quiet street, but not within walking distance of restaurants. The gardens are very attractive but the rooms, in a separate block from the main house are very dated and feel as if they were last updated in the 1980's. Our shower drain was blocked and, standing ankle deep in tepid water, it clearly hadn't been...

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!

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...

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...

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...
