We had a lovely stay at the Valley Lodge and Spa. We stayed in a beautiful, spacious suite with a fireplace which we thoroughly enjoyed. The service was fantastic. After dinner we didn't feel like eating dessert immediately, so they let us choose a selection of eats and brought it to us in the room. The spa is lovely and... More

I reserved accommodation for two adults and two children online and my reservation was confirmed with a figure of R4864.63 . To my surprise on arrival at the hotel on Sunday night I was told I had to pay an extra R1070.00 per child per night notwithstanding the children sleeping in the same room as us. Thus to my surprise... More

I was pleasantly suprised - i was expecting rustic, but apart from the facade of the rooms, the interiors were modern and the fact that they had capsule Italian coffee in your rooms and heated bathroom floors made it feel world-class.

I recently had Sunday Lunch at Valley Lodge & Spa. It is a beautiful, tranquil place, well maintained and has a relaxing, country lodge feel, but with modern looking rooms and buildings.

Rooms spacious and well appointed. Under floor... More
