Very nice location, the staff were very helpful, and happy to book resteraunts, taxis etc.. The location is excellent for visiting Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, and the many surrounding wine estates. The pool area is lovely and the area in general is superb. The only criticism would be the room was a little dated and tired,

Whilst the rooms are a bit dated, all the amenities are here. The big thing for us was the amount of grounds that are well looked after. There is a swimming pool with beds that has gardens around it. A refreshing change from a miniature pool shoe horned into a quadrangle that is so often the case. We booked literally... More

We have stayed at Val D'Or several times and have never been disappointed. The location and grounds are stunning - a beautiful haven set amongst the vineyards and mountains of Franschoek. Suzette is the perfect hostess - making sure that our stay was perfect.

We were travelling at a quiet time (Dec 23) which probably explains the lack of staff, queues for check-in and initial difficulty making telephone contact to get advice when we needed to divert round a forest fire. The property is in a beautiful setting, the rooms are spacious and the breakfast was more than adequate, but the enterprise had a... More

We had a one night stay for the MCC champagne festival but wished we stayed for longer. It was so relaxing, with beautiful mountain views, pool, peaceful garden... The rooms are very comfortable ave well decorated. Great breakfast too! We are thinking of going back with a group to make use of the four bed house. Will definitely go again!

This was an overnight stay chosen from a few choices through booking. Com. What a result..... perfect setting, lovely pool, friendly staff. Would definitely return but shame driveway is a bumpy dirt road without a security gate.

Thank you for your kind words! Just a note, security cameras monitor the second entrance by the gate, as well as the entire property. The 800m road, to get to our property, has been scheduled for an upgrade. Sorry to have caused an inconvenience. Best regards, Suzette. More

Do you remember the feeling of relaxation and relief, when you come home? That is the feeling my husband and I get, when arriving at Val D’Or. It is the second time we stay there, last year we stayed for a month. Again the stay was long, as this has become a home from home. We felt we were meeting... More
