About Quinnest

Quinnest is located in the quiet town of Oranjeville, on the banks of the Vaal River. The establishment offers bed and breakfast accommodation in three boutique rooms.

The three rooms are all individually decorated. We provide soft hotel-class linen and towels. Each room has an antique feel with modern facilities. There is a fridge outside to keep drinks cold. Guests can relax outside on the patio, while sipping a glass of wine by the crackling fire of the braai. Guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast served daily. Children can play outside on the grassed lawn while the adults simply relax.

For the more adventurous, the Vaal Dam is just a short walk or drive away where guests can enjoy numerous water activities. Your host will happily provide weekend package deals for those seeking to add a bit of adventure and fun to their stay. There is a telescope for guests who want to gaze at the moon and stars at night, and we have beautiful clear skies at night.

We also do Sundowner cruises, watersports and aeroplane flips around the dam at an additional cost. Please note that pets are allowed.

We had an amazing time at Quinnest, Quintin is a very good host and made us feel at home. We loved the layout of the room. It was a very calming and relaxing weekend, we loved the dogs, they made us feel at home as well. Next time we will bring along our Jack Russel to play with them.

Quinnest has listed so many things on Safari but there was hardly any as listed. The listing mentioned "Includes Breakfast" & "Guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast served daily." But when we called the owner to check the options for breakfast then we got to know that breakfast would not be served and they told us that Safari made an error in the listing. When we spoke with Safari they said that the breakfast should be there and the owners made the error. However, Safari spoke with owners and made appropriate amends. The listing also mentions "Your host will happily provide weekend packag...

We stayed there for 2 nights. Booked one family room for 4 but the patrons (absent, telephonically) were friendly enough to allow us to use two rooms out of the three they have, as all were available. Problems started a bit later when we discovered hundreds of ants in the rooms (dead and alive). Could be termites, not satelite TV. One room had one channel (SABC2) other room's TV could not be switched on. Then, there was no hot water for one day, but that was apparently a municipal problem. There was more awkwad experiences I do not even wish to report on.  On the positive side, the...
