I have spend a few weekends at Valley View and could never make up my mind about the place. My last visit solved my dilemma. The accommodations are simple but clean and comes with all you need, I use it for a stop over for unplanned photo sessions in the Pilanesberg. We end up barbecuing (braaing) on every occasion and...

We discovered Valley View Guest House by chance and we so happy with our find. We had a lovely stay. The rooms and the guest house as a whole were clean and of good standard. Dinner is served in house, prepared personally and served by the owner Michele - top class meal! Really efficient service. Staff all super polite. Great... More

Paid rather a lot here in comparison to a lot of other places and I'm unsure whether there's a special foreigner price! Yes you get breakfast but it all felt a bit cheap and low quality again compared to elsewhere. I'm told the area has frequent power cuts so splashing out for AC is quite unnecessary and again they have... More

Not a bad place for Pilanesberg National Park, but a bit edgy around the corners. No regrets, but we don't know if we would return. Staff - mostly nice, but lacked professionialism/attentiveness. We arrived with a small child and a lot of luggage and weren't offered help - very unusual for South Africa. Also, they had a blackout and a... More

The hotel is located in an area not everyone may feel comfortable in. It's hemmed in on all sides by residential houses. It aims for a faux- Romanesque look that doesn't really work. It's hard to disguise an architecturally dull modern brick building as anything else. The bed was acceptable. The bathroom dark and cold (it was May, which is... More

I visited Valley View this week for a 2 night stay on a "photo Safari" to the Pilanesberg. What a lovely surprise. It is a very simple clean unassuming place to stay. For those wanting a 5* experience then this is not for you. The Italian gentlemen Michele who owns the B&B welcomed me personally & was really friendly &... More

We had breakfast (which is included in the price) and dinner (R180 extra), and I must say the food is really nice. The dinner is prepared to your liking, and the... More

Valley View is very very basic. Its only advantage is that it is close to Pilanesburg National Park. As it is situated outside the park it is cheaper than options inside the park. However, even at that price, it is too basic. The rooms are very small and cramped and most appliances don't work. Our AC wasn't working and neither... More

This was the worst guesthouse I have ever stayed in. Very unfriendly reception. I was given room no: 8. It is right next too the parking-area, so cars coming and going through the night. It is next to the main road, very noisy, as well the neighbor starting his truck @ 3h45 in the morning for 10min and switching it... More
