We stayed in the barn house which was perfect for our purposes. The accommodation is well equipped and cosy with underfloor heating in one bedroom and air-con in both to take the chill off the air. Would be great to be there in summer and use the outside braai area. The children loved exploring in the big garden. Staff were... More

A true gem, with superb service and great position. Beautiful surroundings. Spacious Setting. Always my first choice in Franschhoek and excellent value. Romantic and relaxing. Position is right next to La Motte.

Val d'Or is a quiet, comfortable spot in the Franschhoek winelands and perfectly positioned for visiting the many good vineyards and restaurants. However, the self catering option is also available, and excellent!

Our team had a great time at Val d'Or's function venue. The food was fantastic and the area was beautiful. Wifi was also a life saver. We will definitely consider visiting there again for future functions.

We had a fantastic stay at this B&B. We stayed here in the middle of Winter with snow on the surrounding mountains thus the under floor heating was a winner. What a surprise we had on our first breakfast when the fire was lit for us in the dinning room. Our room had a lovely view. Establishment highly recommended.

We enjoyed the lovely under floor heating, it made the whole room cosy which in a winter getaway is a huge plus. The staff were really friendly keeping my little one entertained while I enjoyed breakfast. My husband is still raving about the omelettes he had for breakfast.

I stayed at Val d'Or as part of a small conference group. The venue suited our needs perfectly in that it offers the beauty of the Franschoek Valley, the personalised service of a well run guest house and has all the facilities needed for a small conference group. To top it all - the food made by the resident chef... More

All staff were so friendly and welcoming that we felt at home immediately. Our room, Barn Suite 1 contained everything anyone could need and, to our surprise, a large balcony with magnificent views. Breakfast set us up for the day and the complimentary sherry/port was a lovely touch when we came in at night.
