Beautiful setting ideally located not far from Franschoek town and good wine farms. We enjoyed the very quiet atmosphere created by the beautiful gardens. Rooms are spacious and clean, beds are comfortable and the staff is very friendly. We would definitively return and recommend to friends.

My wife, adult son and I spent 3 days visiting the Franschoek "heaven" at Val d'Or Guest house. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home, the staff were friendly and efficient. The accommodation was clean, spacious and adequate. If any criticism is to be raised it would be that the living facilities are a little out dated... More

With my family of 5 we again stayed @ Val D'Or and again we had a great time! Our 2 bedroom cottage was huge for us, the beds were very nice, the shower perfect and aircon was available when needed. The staff was very helpful and the owner arranged a reliable baby sit for us, so that we could enjoy... More

Wonderful, relaxing stay at Val d'Or Guest House. Beautiful, stunning setting a minutes drive out of Franchhoek village. Warm welcome, spacious, clean rooms very comfortable beds. Breakfast choice not huge but perfectly acceptable. Rooms a little tired but very clean and comfortable. Would definitely return and very happy to recommend. Thank you Val d'Or.

My wife & I were disappointed on our stay here. we booked a Gallery Suite but found that our Sitting area was actually the open space between 2 Suites directly above the reception area which you shared with the adjacent Suite. This could never be regarded as a 'Private space' & therefore we felt that the description was not accurate.... More

There is a lounge in the room as well as a seating area between the two upstairs rooms. The viewing deck is 60M2 and is only available to the two upstairs rooms as per the pictures on our web site. Thank you, your comments have been noted. Regards Suzette More

My last holiday was a working holiday and my husband and I stayed in the Franschhoek Valley in this beautiful guest house for a whole month. It’s not easy for the hosts to keep their customer satisfied for a whole month without some comments. But the Val d’Or hosts certainly did. Never was our privacy interrupted or disturbed during this... More

We had a most enjoyable stay at Val d'Or. Beautiful setting and accommodation. We were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to a spacious and cool room. Very welcome on a hot day! so was the ice cold water. We would definitely recommend to friends and family.

We really enjoyed our weekend at Val d'Or. The hospitality was very good and the breakfast was excellent. The atmosphere, created by the beautiful gardens, does wonders for the place. We will be back. We have also recommended this to our daughter and her husband and they will be staying over in early January 2015.

Val d'Or is a very quiet hotel in a beautiful valley. Rooms are spacious and clean and the staff is very friendly. The hotel will go to lengths to help you find a restaurant or a book a daytrip. the wine tours in the area are a must!
