Built in 1905 by Sidney Herbert Adley during the "Ostrich Feather Boom" this magnificent Victorian home was bequeathed in 1948 to the orphans of the Second World War.
Mr/s Macmoran tended 16 Polish orphans until they completed high school in the early sixties. It was then sold.
We bought it in 1989 and undertook the arduous task of restoration - Hilda started a B&B in 1994 which is now a true guest house - a retreat for you to enjoy - in true Victorian style.
Pieter and Hilda Retief with the help of two of their daughters, Heleen and Liza manage Adley House personally.
As true South Africans and residents in Oudtshoorn for over thirty years, they are able to, not only give you a warm welcome and real South African hospitality, but also answer all the questions you may have.

An oasis in the heart of Oudtshoorn, the ideal venue from where you can explore the world's ostrich capital and the Klein Karoo's many tourist attractions or simply exchange stories around a campfire and relax under the starlit Karoo sky.
Situated in a well established/safe area with one parking bay per room and within walking distance of town. Bisibee has a lovely large garden lending itself to a relaxing late afternoon/evening after a long day touring.
