Restful haven
Barbara Hunter, South Africa - 23 November 2015
We stayed in the luxury rooms. After a very long tiring day very close to the venue where we were working our dogs, it was wonderful to be in such a peaceful place. Thank you so much, Andre and Joni for a wondeful stay.

Wonderful! Clean, friendly staff, quiet neigbourhood.
Very comfortable
Dawn Jackson, South Africa - 15 June 2015

The guest house was easy to find, I was warmly welcomed  and I enjoyed my 2 night stay there. The heating was great (was there in June) and I was very comfortable. It has a good location and is close to the old historical part of Stellenbosch.

A little tired
Tim Parsons, England - 26 February 2015
Our fourth visit, the last being about 10 years ago. Little has changed, but the place feels a bit shabby. Lovely friendly welcome, and clean rooms. Shame breakfast no longer by the pool, although quality was good. Where we used to eat under the trees, enjoying the sun and garden, now serves as a smoking area. Ridiculously small bath towels, strange in this age. Good value for money though, good location and very friendly staff.
5 star service

The hospitality was outstanding! I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely go back if I ever need to stay over in Stellenbosch.
Not great
Magda Strachan, South Africa - 06 February 2014
We did not feel very welcome when we arrived, overpriced for what you getting.
Nice & Quiet
Jude Robert, South Africa - 25 January 2014
Rooms were nice, beds and pillows ok. Very hot weather. There were fans in the rooms but noisy and would have preferred the luxury of air-con. Breakfasts were great - good choice. Friendly staff go the extra mile.
Hartlik en welkom
Hannelie Marais, South Africa - 15 April 2013
Ons is by die motor verwelkom en hartlik ontvang.Jy voel tuis met die intrapslag. Kamer baie netjies, ruim en skoon. Baie goed uitleg en alles wat nodig mag wees is beskikbaar. Ons het in die "enkel suite" geslaap en wat heel verras met die rustigheid. n Defnitiewe hawe waarheen jy weer en weer kan gaan. Baie dankie.
Wonderful stay

Home away from home
Caroline Kahl, Namibia - 20 April 2012
Hi to all at Orchard Lane, especially to Adri. i want to appologize for not responding earlier on this email....hours/days/months so quickly passes by....but we really enjoyed our stay at Orchad Lane. as we come from a farm in Namibia, near Otjiwarongo - it was so quiet and "feeling at home" - thanks, it was wonderfull. And talking to Adri and "the Landlord" - it felt as we have known each other for many years. Kindest and warmly regards to all.

Great home away from home
Tsholofelo Kgaudi, South Africa - 27 March 2011
Orchard Lane was a home away from home. Andre and Audrey were magnificent - they know hospitality. Keep it up guys. I am definitely going to recommend Orchard Lane to my friends and family who are going to visit Western Cape.
Patrick Sweeney, Canada - 14 June 2010
Excellent stay - very pleasant, quiet, clean and honourable owners that will pamper you.
Good location
Erkki Vita, Finland - 22 November 2009
Peter and his staff received us friendly and were helpful in many ways eg. restaurant bookings etc. Security was good. Location good close to town and local shopping center. Due to cold and unexpected rains at our arrival, the floor heating in the room (tiled floor) was excellent!
Highly recommended
Helen Belasyse-Smith, United Kingdom - 13 April 2009
We had two brilliant evenings with Doctor Peter. The accommodation was good but the breakfast surpassed expectations and Doctor Peter's advice on a Wine tasting tour and a local restaurant proved to be very sound and we really appreciated his help.
Gerda Fouche, South Africa - 27 January 2009
We had a most enjoyable stay at Orchard Lane. Peter and his staff went out of their way to make our stay there enjoyable and comfortable. I can recommend this guesthouse to people visiting Stellenbosch.
Angelique Tegg, South Africa - 10 November 2008

Highly recommended
Fransiska Kangombe, Namibia - 23 September 2008
We really enjoyed our stay at Orchad lane, excellent staff and services, incl a wonderful breakfast, at a very affordable price too. Let's promote a happier earth, together we can make it.
Felt very welcome
Karen Earnshaw, United Kingdom - 10 March 2008
We were made to feel very welcome here by Peter and his team. Our room was nice with a little patio terrace where we enjoyed the wine we had bought from tastings! Breakfast was good and we appreciated the laundry service offered. We were a little disappointed that we were advised not to walk into the centre of town for safety as the website had said "within easy walking distance" implying it was safe to do so. Go to Blauklippen winery, very near the b&b by car - it was by far the best one we visited (try their White Zinfandel!!)
Very good

Gail Cattelino, South Africa - 10 December 2007
We would just like to thank you again for the lovely weekend, and the hospitality, it was very welcoming, we normally have to go a long way before we find such friendliness and hospitality, Stellenbosch is really a beautiful town. We will definitely recommend Orchard Lane to all our family and friends.

Peaceful, jungly and friendly
Great place to stay
Melanie Keppler, United Kingdom - 28 November 2006
Orchard Lane was a lovely place to stay with a great breakfast. Our host was very helpful, in not only recommending and booking us a wonderful restaurant, but actually taking us there and back so neither of us had to drive and we could drink wine!

A very pleasant stay, with helpful advice about the town from our host.
Gail Beard, South Africa - 20 March 2006
Thanks so much for making our short stay such a pleasant one, the room, the service, the food & the atmosphere was great. Really felt like staying another day but reality calls and starting missing our 2 little angels we left in the hands of our parents. Will definately tell others about our wonderful experience at Orchard Lane.

Value for money
Hardus Mynhardt, South Africa - 24 January 2006
The situation is perfect, good hospitality and excellent service. Great breakfast on the patio!
A secret oasis
J Donaldson, United Kingdom - 22 January 2006
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orchard Lane. Tucked away in a quiet street but only a minute off the main road and very easy to get to. It was wonderful to step into our beautiful, cool, airy suite after the heat and dust of travelling. The pool is ideal to refresh your senses after long days of sightseeing and wine-tasting, and the hosts personal winery recommendations hit the mark all the way! We would happily stay there again, and recommend it strongly to anyone visiting the Stellebosch area.
Review of Orchard Lane, Stellenbosch
Tim Parsons, United Kingdom - 11 January 2006
This is an excellent B&B. Great value, excellent comfort and a warm and welcoming environment. The host, Jimmy, is a mine of information and friendly suggestions. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, the garden and pool a haven of peace after a hectic day at the plethora of wine estates nearby, and the breakfast an excellent and enjoyable start to the day.
Thank you
Dominique McMurtry, South Africa - 20 December 2005
Thank you for your kind hospitality. It was a lovely peaceful place to come back to every evening. The rooms were clean and the view beautiful.

We've had a wonderfull time staying at the Orchard lane guesthouse. Jimmy was very helpfull with planning a winetasting and hoursebackriding.
Great Vacation
Dirk Engelke, Germany - 01 December 2005
very personal and friendly atmosphere. A shoppingcenter and restaurants were within 5 minute walking distance. We had a good time there and appreciate the restaurant tips from Jimmi. A nice surprise that we hadn't expected was the included laundry service. That spared us the washing at home.
