The Hotel

If you would’ve asked anyone about The Oriana Orange three years ago, you would’ve been greeted with looks of apprehension. One of the first motels in Orange, The Oriana opened its doors in 1968 and judging from people’s reactions, wasn’t a place to be or be seen. Fast forward to February 2017, when owners Ted Marr and Espen Harbitz purchased it with a goal to turn it around.

Two years later, with its eclectic velvet furniture, different-coloured rooms, French-chic Bela Vista Bar and charming outdoor pool and pool bar frequented by guests and locals alike; The Oriana Orange is a quaint property ideally located in the heart of town and a perfect country escape. Perched off the main Woodward Street, this property conjures the ambience of an old-world motel you might find on the side of the road in regional Texas; but step inside and you’ll discover a delightful home away from home.

Deluxe King Suite at The Oriana Orange, NSW

The Room

The cosy suites at The Oriana Orange have no residue of the rusty motel that once existed in its place. You’ll feel right at home in the newly-renovated Deluxe King Room. Think: eclectic furniture and vibrant colours in an intimate setting. From plush bedding and blackout drapes to the bowl of fruit and fresh flowers, it’s the little touches that make all the difference. Enjoy complimentary bottled water, comfortable lounge area and a brand-new Smart TV that lets you connect to your Netflix account!

The Food

While the buffet breakfast at the Travellers Lounge is fresh and simple, the menu at The Oriana Gardens is designed to share and bursts with Mediterranean-inspired flavours. Feast on anything from Persian eggplant with yoghurt and pomegranate to confit duck with Dijon mustard and grilled sourdough.

Moving into winter, the stylish indoor Peacock Room – perched alongside Bela Vista Bar and oozing the same European vibe – will open its doors with a menu inspired by delicious French fare. Tickle your tastebuds with a variety of dishes like a velvety bisque of blue swimmer crab & prawn or seasonal pasta filled with woodland mushrooms, tuscan kale and silky goats curd. Mouthwatering desserts include chocolate fondant with creamed chestnut, honey’ed ganache and crisp meringue; and a rhubarb and orchard pear crumble with warm vanilla anglaise.

Come evening, the ultra-stylish Bela Vista Bar—with its eye-catching blue and green velvet seating and lavish crystal-cut glasses—is a glamorous spot to enjoy anything from a negroni sbagliato to a mango daiquiri. For a little more privacy and a true sense of old-world mystique, cosy up in a corner of the bar’s Parisian-inspired back room – draped in Espen’s personal European art collection and reminiscent of an underground bar you’d only find down a laneway in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.

The Verdict

Intimate and in close proximity to all that Orange has to offer; the individuality and uber-friendly service on offer at The Oriana Orange makes it our choice for a country getaway that’s a home away from home.
