Not a bad place for Pilanesberg National Park, but a bit edgy around the corners. No regrets, but we don't know if we would return. Staff - mostly nice, but lacked professionialism/attentiveness. We arrived with a small child and a lot of luggage and weren't offered help - very unusual for South Africa. Also, they had a blackout and a... More

The hotel is located in an area not everyone may feel comfortable in. It's hemmed in on all sides by residential houses. It aims for a faux- Romanesque look that doesn't really work. It's hard to disguise an architecturally dull modern brick building as anything else. The bed was acceptable. The bathroom dark and cold (it was May, which is... More

I visited Valley View this week for a 2 night stay on a "photo Safari" to the Pilanesberg. What a lovely surprise. It is a very simple clean unassuming place to stay. For those wanting a 5* experience then this is not for you. The Italian gentlemen Michele who owns the B&B welcomed me personally & was really friendly &... More

We visited this Guest House on a business trip, and we really enjoyed our stay. the rooms are clean, the service is great and the people is really friendly. We had breakfast (which is included in the price) and dinner (R180 extra), and I must say the food is really nice. The dinner is prepared to your liking, and the... More

Valley View is very very basic. Its only advantage is that it is close to Pilanesburg National Park. As it is situated outside the park it is cheaper than options inside the park. However, even at that price, it is too basic. The rooms are very small and cramped and most appliances don't work. Our AC wasn't working and neither... More

Very close to Pilanesburg Park and Sun City... I couldn't ask for more... the rooms were basic but very clean. Friendly staff and great atmosphere, Gym and Spa on the premises so i was never bored. Lovely little pool but its a bit cold to swim, never the less i thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Thanks Valley View Guest House

This was the worst guesthouse I have ever stayed in. Very unfriendly reception. I was given room no: 8. It is right next too the parking-area, so cars coming and going through the night. It is next to the main road, very noisy, as well the neighbor starting his truck @ 3h45 in the morning for 10min and switching it... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the guest house. Felt more like a home than a lodge/guest house. Very friendly host and the breakfast was very good. Close to Sun City and Pilansberg which made it easy for our daily travels. Will definitely recommend it to anyone.
