We held our wedding at Val d’Or in the end of November 2014. Thanks to the managers, Suzette, her husband, Emmanuel and the team we had a wonderful and successful wedding weekend! The venue is absolutely perfect for a small (50ppl) wedding (of which we had about 20ppl staying at the ValdOr guesthouse). I am glad we rented the entire... More

It is a very beautiful and tranquil place with a great view. The people were friendly and helpful. The people are professional. The conference room was setup perfectly without any issues. The food was great and the rooms beautiful. I would stay there again.

Stayed in one of a few spacious rooms in a lovely old house close to Franschhoek. We were able to relax/chill/read in the house itself or by the cosy pool area and had our breakfast served out on the verandah outside the bedroom with spectacular views of the mountain range. This is the perfect place to not seek out the... More

Recommended for friends or families! Very nice guesthouse with a familiar feeling. Very good service and friendly staff. The review would have been a 5 if they had offered light lunch and/or dinner at the estate.

From the moment we arrived, we sensed this guesthouse has much room for improvement. The host was nowhere to be seen, and for most of our stay, there was no-one even at reception to assist with information or any questions about Franschoek. We were looking forward to our stay at Val D'or, but left disappointed. It certainly does not get... More

We spent 2 nights in a most beautiful surrounding. Our room was very comfortable with spectacular views of the mountains. Breakfast was delicious and served with a smile. Will definitely go back again!

A great experience from arrival to departure. The staff were excellent, breakfast good and beautifully presented and the whole setting was magical. The hotel is a little out of town but this wasn't an issue for us.
