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.

As we were with our American friends, who were first time visitors to S.A. we wanted to give them as wide an experience as possible, hence our visit to the winelands. Staying at Val d'Or was a joy as it offered easy access to the whole area and provided great accommodation in a beautiful setting. Breakfasts were outstanding and the... More

We stayed here for one night when we were in Franschhoek for a wedding. Sorry we didn't have time to enjoy the grounds and the pool - such a gorgeous spot! Breakfast was a bit disappointing for a 4-star establishment.

Driving up the long driveway into The Val D'or Estate you immediately fall in love with the setting even more so when you see the guest house, it really is beautiful. We stayed in the Barn House Galley Suite and the views from the shared balcony are stunning. We were staying for a wedding and getting picked up at 1.30pm,... More

Franschhoek truly is one of the most outstanding naturally beautiful areas of South Africa, and with a gorgeous blend of European and African culture, it's always resonated to us as a couple as a dream wedding venue. My husband (who's family is local to the region) and I chose Val d'Or to host our international and extremely intimate wedding to... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the amenities and fantastic views from our balcony. We decided to have a barbeque one evening and could use the kitchen facilities to prepare our food. The fire was ready when we needed to start cooking.
