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.

We had a fantastic weekend with friends at Val d'Or Guesthouse. Very nice ambiente, tastefull furnishing, splendid location with super-garden and environment. All in all a place, you have enough place for yourself and your friends or family with good facilities.

Val d'Or is a very charming country guest house. Suzette is extremely helpful and friendly helping guests visit Franschhoek and the surrounding wine area. This was my second stay and I hope to return!

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

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
