We had a 8 night stay over on this beautiful estate with mountain views and far enough away from the main road for peace and quiteness . The managment and staff were very friendly and helpful in all ways. The pool is in a nicely set park with enough sun beds and if needed shade. Breakfast was good and the... More

The guest house is very comfortable and relaxing, with a beautiful mountain view just in front, and very close to several wine estates where excellent south african wines can be tasted and savored. It's a kind of European corner in the heart of Western Cape of South Africa!

Situated approximately 8 minutes from the centre of Franschoek, this establishment is very well positioned. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The swimming pool and surrounding garden area were very pleasant. As with many guest houses in South Africa, the breakfast attendants could do with some additional training- but you get there in the end !

We loved our stay at the Val D'Or guest house. Our barn house gallery room was spacious and comfortable, with a large bathroom and use of a balcony overlooking the beautiful grounds. The staff were friendly and helpful. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

The hotel is excellently positioned, 5 minutes from Franschoek, yet in the country. beautiful surroundings, with mountains in the background and a lovely garden. The staff was very friendly and helpful, organising taxis and dinner arrangements with no problem. A really great stay.
