A truly outstanding location and venue with superb staff and attentive management. Why this hotel doesn't have 5 stars must only be a technicality because I have never experienced this level of customer service and attention to detail from any other country or hotel I've stayed in. The Executive Chef has an amazing staff and goes out of his way...

A great venue nestled in the Magaliesburg. Food is excellent, service is exceptional, attention to detail. A getaway for couples or the family. Just around the corner from Johannesburg. I can recommend the buffet any day.

Awesome place if you're looking for relaxation. The spa is absolutely beautiful and a plus is that visitors get to use the indoor heated pool and jacuzzi as part of the service. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. We specifically enjoyed the wide assortment given at breakfast, as well as rowing in the river. I would definitely come...

We had a very unfortunate experience at the Valley lodge restaurant on Boxing day. My cell phone was stolen over lunch and as there were very few customers and none of them got close to my handbag I can only assume it was one of the waiters. I had my handbag next to me at my feet and assumed it...

First the negatives - It was difficult making the booking as the reception staff weren't really able to explain to me what the difference between the 3 different classes of rooms were. The housekeeping appeared understaffed and we only got access to our room just under 2 hours after the 2pm check-in time. I had to ask twice for towels...

Valley Lodge & Spa is a jewel in the Magaliesburg that is a deserving travel destination for any discerning traveler. Unfortunately, I found their dining options unambitious. The food has always been good, but for Valley Lodge & Spa to become a foodie destination of note, they would need to upscale their country buffet with some serious foodie cachet to...
