After almost a 40 hour trip this was an amazing place to call home for 3 days. Its small and personal, a lot of attention to detail was paid to the breakfast and excellent recommendations given for dinner. Family drove from Cape Town to spend the day at the pool with us, we had to kick them out eventually so... More

We stayed in the Manor Room in a period of low affluence and we were completely alone, with a huge dining room and kitchen at our service. There are 4 or 5 private rooms with bathroom in the manor house, sharing a well equipped kitchen, a huge dining room, sitting room with old style sofas and paintings, with barbeque outside... More

My husband and I chose Val D'or as the venue for our wedding. Coming from England to get married in Franschhoek it was ideal as we were able to book all the rooms for our guests to stay in and we got the gorgeous honeymoon suite. What we got was far more than just beautifully decorated rooms, and stunning scenery... More

We were 2 couples staying in the self catering accomodation which consists of individual rooms sharing a common lounge and kitchen, which was well equipped. The rooms were decorated to a high standard, beds were comfortable and overall we were very content with the standard of... More

We stayed at Val D'Or for three nights during our honeymoon. We loved it, the staff was very nice and gave us a free upgrade to our room.

My wife and I made a spur-of-the-moment decision to visit Franschoek on the way to what was supposed to be a 2-day visit to Stellenbosch. By lunch time in Franschoek we were so enamored with the little town we decided to spend the night and go the Stellenbosch the following day. I looked on TripAdvisor for last minute lodging while...

We spent New Year's Eve in the cottage. There are 4 bedrooms all en-suite and a common lounge. The location is superb. We had our own BBQ area. Everything was perfect, rooms are clean, breakfast superb and good WiFi in the reception area. Finally a big thank you to the management team: I have forgotten some clothes in my room... More

We decided to take a day trip from Cape Town to Franschoek and to stay over at Val D'Or for an evening. The room was spacious, the rates were very affordable, compared to nearby accommodation options and the service was excellent.
