I was here with my family in the first week of February and I mean the entire family (including my dog). Its very nice of them to allow pets in cause most of the other home stays don't.

We greatly enjoyed our trip to the Hidden Valley: delicious barbecue, hot home cooking and scenic walks all contributed to the experience, and we especially appreciated the staff taking our requests into consideration and keeping the dog under control! The fresh coffee from the estate was an added bonus; as someone who prefers her coffee with a lot of milk... More

Good: Very calm place, clean and green Friendly staff Nice rooms Good food. It's a good value for money Bad: A little too much hidden. A small road this home stay to the main road (around 2 km) was really bad.

We spent a long weekend at the Hidden Valley which turned out to be a verdant and pretty plantation. The greenery all around and fresh clean air of the hills was like the manna to our souls.

The Hidden Valley is an amazing place, with comfortable rooms and a lovely sit-out area overlooking the pond! The estate is well-maintained and there are numerous trails for walking/running. The guided estate walk is interesting and informative, a nice way to acquaint yourself with the production of coffee while taking in the scenic setting. The estate is also a bird... More
