We arrived for a 1 night stop over between bookings and were greeted by the most hospitable family run boutique guest house - fantastic room over looking the ocean, warm friendly service - they made us feel at home and went out of their way to make us feel at home (even helped carry prams up and down stairs). We'll... More

Staff was always friendly and helpful. Attention to finer detail (refilling of soup, toilet paper, milk, sugar, fridge) would lift my rating from very good to excellent. Room was always cleaned very well. I was denied coffee once because the machine was already switched off (and no coffee was topped up in room). But staff went the extra mile to... More

From helpful and knowledgeable assistance on arrival to superbly comfortable and luxuriously decorated rooms, the stay here was top notch and is highly recommended. The breakfast menu has to be experienced!

Really loved finding this hidden gem. The rooms are so comfortable and spacious and the bathroom is a dream of its own. As a fan of Charlotte Rhys...its always a treat to have it at a guesthouse. The only downer for me was the breakfast, which was rather disappointing. There was no rye or health bread option, tiny portions, we... More

No point in going to Durban or Umhlanga if you are not going to stay at the Valdior. This is a true boutique B and B. Friendly reception staff invite you into this modern mansion with beautiful sea views. Rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable with all the amenities a traveller needs. The day is started with a scrumptious... More

This was the last hotel on our 17 day trip, and a relaxed way to end. Staff were friendly and helpful, room had a great view and balcony. Looked to us as if they were undergoing a redecoration as our room and some of the public areas were tired..... there is great potential for this to be a lovely hotel... More

Valdior Guest House is a beautiful mansion with rooms fit for a princess. The staff is highly professional and very discreet and helpful. It is surrounded by many just as beautiful mansions. Breakfast was freshly made from a extensive menu to choose from. The pool looked also very nice. From the balkony you have a beautiful view of the ocean.

We spent two days at Valdior. The view from the room (Claudia) is very beautiful, you can see the ocean. The breakfast is good and the staff is helpful. Is nice to see the monkey run in the garden and over trees :)

My sister and I stayed at Valdior for two nights. The rooms we were each allocated were luxurious and spacious. The staff were welcoming, friendly and professional. The breakfast menu offered a variety of choices and was delicious. Valdior is conveniently located - close to restaurants, shopping malls, the beach and the airport. We will definitely be staying at Valdior... More
