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!

Fantastic accommodation at a very reasonable rate! Thank you Suzette for accommodating us so well! We enjoyed the pool and the very quiet atmosphere. Excellent location not far from all the good wine farms and Franschoek town. A very homely stay.

It was an amazing experience. Not even the constant load shedding could dampen the mood. Was fortunate to spend my birthday and 1 year wedding anniversary in a beautiful place with my beautiful wife. The staff was exceptional. Thank you again so much for a pleasant stay.

Stayed in one of a few spacious rooms in a lovely old house close to Franschhoek. We were able to relax/chill/read in the house itself or by the cosy pool area and had our breakfast served out on the verandah outside the bedroom with spectacular views of the mountain range. This is the perfect place to not seek out the... More

Recommended for friends or families! Very nice guesthouse with a familiar feeling. Very good service and friendly staff. The review would have been a 5 if they had offered light lunch and/or dinner at the estate.
