After spending a vast amount of time looking at guesthouses in the stellenboch I chose Orange ville as the reviews were good and the Web pictures lovely . First impression was great lovely spot and met by Hardy the owner and shown to our little cottage which was cute
I noticed the cottage next door had a Bria so I said great and was told that's Not yours you have not got one ! OK but later by the pool which was rather dirty there was a Bria for guests to use which I was not told about otherwise would have went out and got some meat . Poor communication I feel. I could not remember if I had booked breakfast to be honest but was told what time breakfast was fine.
When we went for breakfast we were told that we were on room only but could have breakfast extra No problem . Got seated and we were asked how we liked our eggs and my wife said what she wanted but I don't eat eggs at all and I got no reply if they could get anything else for me !
Poor hospitality . No English breakfast but not a issue but No Menu on the table so unsure . So all I had was 2 bits of toast as the meats and cheese was very limited and to be honest it needed thrown out looked disgusting. After staying many more places after Nothing compares to that truly awful experience hence we didn't have breakfast the final morning.
You may think Iam being picky but just Honest with my experience.
For the money Not value at all Sorry
