About Adley House

Adley House is 100 years old (1905 - 2010). Built in 1905 by Sidney Herbert Adley during the ostrich feather "boom" period, this magnificent Victorian sandstone mansion was bought by Pieter and Hilda Retief in 1990 and restored to its former glory.

In 1994 Hilda started a B&B with 2 rooms. Adley House, because of its popularity, now has 14 rooms and has become a 4 star Guest House with all the necessary amenities - a retreat for you to enjoy.

Situation

Situated in a quiet upmarket residential area on an acre of land with 2 pools and lush gardens - Adley House is within walking distance of the centre of town with some of the best restaurants in the country and of course the excellent ostrich cuisine and local wines.

Accommodation

Fourteen large en-suite individually decorated rooms to make your stay a pleasant one. All rooms offer modern, quiet remote controlled air-conditioners, remote controlled channel TV, fully stocked fridges, tea and coffee trays, overhead fans and electric blankets, telephones and fax facilities. There is also a daily laundry service available.

Dining

Pieter and Hilda are true South Africans, have lived in Oudtshoorn for 40 years and manage Adley House personally - will be able to give you all the info you require about our town and the surrounding area. Hilda is known worldwide for her excellent South African breakfast with freshly baked rolls or "vetkoek" every morning. In the evening, on request, we may braai (barbecue) or you can have a four course meal - real South African style. Ostrich steaks are our speciality!

History

In 1948 Adley House was bequeathed to the war fund - housed 16 Polish orphans until the early sixties. The orphanage was managed by Major McMoron and his wife as if it were a typical English hotel. The boys had to be dressed for evening meals, enjoyed English breakfasts, were taught table manners along with all the wonderful English traditions and etiquette. Some of them settled in South Africa and we have had visits from them and their families revisiting Adley House and reviving past memories.
