Spend 3 nights at Val Dor in 2013 and we enjoyed our stay there. 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. Location is great in Franschhoek, easy drive to all the vineyards and the picturesque downtown. The staff helped us book a round of golf and a day at the spa for my... More

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...

My husband and I stayed at Val D'Or overnight 25/1/14. It was the one of the most relaxing and beautiful places we have ever visited. The staff were so welcoming, friendly and very efficient. We stayed in the Barn House, which was lovely, breakfast next morning on the terrace. Only a few minutes outside Franschhoek which has some lovely restaurants... More

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. The Guest House did not go overboard with the decor, but was stylishly furnished making it very comfortable and... More

My main review comes from my Bachelorette's Party that was held out on the lawn under the gazebo at the same venue, much to my delight. Val d'Or were... More

A guesthouse that gives you a feeling of luxury. We stayed in the barnhouse suite, which is worth every penny. Spacious bathroom, huge balcony with a magnificent view over the surrounding vineyards. The breakfast buffet could use a slightly wider variety of cheeses. But we are Dutch, so ..... The pool is situated just away from the building, so no... More

Stayed here for a few days in January, in the self catering rooms and we were happy here. The rooms were adequate and functional and served it's purpose. I wasn't completely blown away but I still enjoyed my stay :-) Actually, not a complaint, but more a suggestion: A small microwave in the room would have been nice and would... More

Val D’or Estates is a well manicured tasteful estate that has an excellent location nestled amongst rows of ripening grapes bound for the nearby wineries. Our reception was warm and cordial, and our room was thoughtfully appointed. The grounds are extremely beautiful with warm vibrant flowers in the foreground that create a perfect contrast to the golden sun setting over... More
