A beautiful guest house with all the little extras to make this a very memorable stay. A pleasant addition would be a fireplace in the cottage for warmth and ambience as it was a very chilly weekend..

We were very happy with the cottage for our family weekend trip to the area. It was very spacious and well appointed and set within beautiful grounds. The service was excellent and breakfast was plentiful!

Absolutely stunning! Amazing rooms, full access to kitchen and dining room a bonus - got to meet some cool travellers. Great breakfast and perfect location - not too close to the busy town, but close enough that you can access it quickly :) thank you!

Although we were a big group that came to stay over a working long weekend and it was during winter weather, we couldn't have been happier that we chose this beautiful place. We loved the tranquility, it was unlike any hotel where you normally hear doors slam and neighbor's televisions. We also enjoyed the beautiful patio by the pool that... More

Wonderful staff made our stay even more fantastic even before we arrived! Suzette pre-booked a massage for me, hassle free and such wonderful guest service! The accommodation is spacious and gardens are beautiful. Mandla booked us into Rocca for supper, it was unbelievable! Thank you to all involved, our stay was so peaceful and we will be back!

We payed a very reasonable price for our stay at Val d'Or after a slight misunderstanding about the price. We stayed in the manor house. It was off season so we had the house all for ourselves. Friendly owner. Lovely breakfast. Quite central, close to everything we wanted to see. Fee wi-fi is available in the reception area.

My wife, our son and I spent 4 days in the Franschhoek Valley and were wanting relaxed, comfortable and spacious family type accommodation. We got precisely that and in addition found every staff member warm, friendly and anxious to please. We could not have asked for more.

The venue was superb, the friendliness of staff was great, and the proximity to the winelands and to Franschoek is perfect. We stayed in one of the standard rooms, which was perfect. The wifi wasn't always that consistent in our rooms though.
