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. Amazing breakfast with all you can possibly eat. The house is near to the centre on a quiet leafy avenue. We enjoyed... More

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.

We enjoyed this guest house. The rooms were all different and quirky. They put on a bbq at night and the food was excellent. Breakfast was one of the best we had in two weeks. The garden was delightful.

Our journey from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn was spectacular and the welcome at Adley House was equal to this! Unfortunate events saw our camera stolen on route to the guest house and even though we arrived fairly late in the evening we were greeted with wonderful friendliness and support. The guesthouse arranged a table at a restaurant in town, along... More

Lovely old house set in beautiful gardens in a leafy part of town. We had a great room at the back with a patio. Breakfast was superb. An easy 20 minute walk into town but we were advised not to walk back; no problem a free shuttle is easily arranged. Highly recommended.

A good location near the centre of town and easy to find. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast and we sat outside to eat. Rooms (chalet style) weren't top notch, but it was nice to have an area outside the room where we could sit out. Beautiful gardens

Allow yourself enough time to enjoy this little gem of a hotel. Family run business and home cooked breakfast was delicious. So much character.The rooms were absolutely amazing. We wished we had stayed more than one night.
