Beautiful guest house. We were welcomed by a very nice and amicable staff who gave us all the tips and relevant info to make the most but of out trip. Good and friendly service. Even though location itselfis quite good the only downside I would say is that there are a couple of dodgy characters always hanging out right outside...

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of a long tour through South Africa. The staff were welcoming, the decor rather quirky, yet appealing, and the breakfasts totally lovely. One nice touch was 'today's breakfast special' ranging from various fruit smoothies, to Bircher Muesli and sweet filled pancakes. Freshly squeezed juice and eggs cooked to order. This guest...

We stayed one night at this quirky, faux-colonial guesthouse, one of several 'Sweets' close to good restaurants and oceanside walks.Everything worked fine (lighting, toilet, showers, etc) but the whole place made a - possibly intentional - run-down impression (doors that stuck, old furniture, eccentric décor). Our bed (room 'Moon') was very comfortable and the room spacious with direct access to...

We started a cycle tour of the Cape and ended it here. We were very lucky to have two different rooms, both being very nice. All amenities were catered for and the breakfasts were very good. However you have to pay for WiFi - ANNOYING!

Sweet Orange was in a great location. Very attractive guesthouse with the best breakfast around. Staff were very helpful and left hot water bottles every night for the guests. Rooms and dining area were beautifully decorated and the fireplace in the kitchen gave it a very homely feel. Would definitely stay there again!

Was definitely not a pleasant stay. "Room service" constantly knocked on the door and would just let themselves in from time to time with no explanation. No privacy at all. Also after the room was cleaned my door was left open with all my belongings inside... No explanation was provided. Disappointed a won't be coming back.
