We were welcomed warmly and our rooms were very comfortable. We were taking part in a marathon on the Saturday morning and our host left the kitchen open for us and was up at 4am to open the gate for us. The staff were very friendly and met our every need. I have already booked to return next year!!!

We recently visited Oudtshoorn and stayed at Adley House. We were warmly welcomed. Our room was lovely spacious and the breakfast was wholesome and healthy. The gardens are breathtakingly beautiful.

Adley Guest House is a lovely place to stay. Do not expect modern rooms as the rooms reflect the age of the house. They are clean and comfortable and have all the facilities needed for a lovely stay.

We visited the KKNK over the weekend and the Adley House is perfectly situation and walking distance to the main events. Beautiful house and garden and most delicious breakfast, especially the freshly baked vetkoek! Thanks for the take-away breakfast on the last morning as we left very early driving back to Gauteng.
