“Very nice place”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

This guesthouse is situated in the middle of the town, but quiet! The owners are very nice and helpful! There are big rooms and breakfast is very good. It is a really good place for visiting Oudtshoorn and the surroundings like the Ostrich-farms, Swartberg-Pass, Little Karoo....
You may feel like at home!

Room Tip: Room number 1 is very nice!

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.

Beautiful house, so much character to it. Lovely breakfast offered, love the honesty bar and the pool area. Great homely feel to it and the family who run it are very friendly. Have stayed here twice and can highly 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
