My boyfriend and I had a wonderful relaxing stay. Such beautiful and peaceful surroundings. A massage at the spa is a must. The hotel has great facilities and great staff.
One of the most memorable stays we have had. We will Definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I had the most relaxing weekend we have had in a long time. It's incredibly peaceful and the sound of the river in the background is awesome! A wonderful massage at the spa is a must! Great facilities and great staff! One of our favorite spots by far!

We stayed at the lodge for a weekend and enjoyed it very much! The rooms were large and were well appointed with high quality fittings and very comfortable. The setting is beautiful, but unfortunately due to the rainy weather we were unable to enjoy the pool and sitting out areas to its full extent. The management and staff were friendly and very helpful.

We visited the lodge for one night in December. We were travelling in a group an even with us all arriving around the same time, the check-in went smoothly with the staff being friendly and helpful
The room was spacious and the decor modern with King size bed. The bathroom had a double shower, double basin and bath. We did however have to bath and shower in cold water as there was some or other issue with the geyser which was resolved by the next morning.

Our group went for a hot air balloon ride at 5am the next morning - it was a lovely experience with beautiful views. The departure took place from the lodge premises.

The restaurant buffet was tasty with a nice variety.

The spa at the lodge was superb, it had all the typical spa facilities one would expect all designed and laid out very practical and modern. The therapists were friendly and professional and the treatments very relaxing.

We plan on visiting the lodge again with our daughter, as the lodge allows for kids and has a large pool.

A beautiful destination and exceptionally managed. Absolutely friendly staff! The food was divine! The entire resort is neat and quite. The serenity is complemented by the flowing river that runs past the place. The rooms are spacious and luxurious with double showers. The Boma is ideal for small functions. The bar has a full size pool table together with other games. Overall it is a hidden gem!

We have recently spent the weekend at Valley lodge. The last time I was at this hotel was in 1991 yes 23 years ago and it is as I remember it . The addition of the Spa and the Hotel Lobby complement the services.

From the reception to the waiters , restaurant and even been welcomed by the General Manager Laurence the service was nothing less than superb. The dinners are a buffet style starting with soup of the day , salad bar , three meat carvery , dessert spread ect ect wow. Breakfast was just such a treat. You can even order a picnic basket and enjoy it at the river.

The hotel is child friendly so remember to take there bicycles as there is a tarred road throughout the hotel they can ride on.

What an experience thank you the Valley Lodge Team

Room Tip: We stayed in room 53 close to the river. Very private with good security presence

We booked a spa for a group of girlfriends. We were not offered any drinks before or to place our things in a locker. When asked to move treatment to the pool they pulled their face! We were told we were too noisy and kept on shooing us. While other white people were told nothing. Food was way over priced and prawn curry was disaster. When the bill came over charged us. Luckily we picked it up
