This is our second stay at this property and they have sustained excellent standards throughout. The location is perfect and stunning just outside but adjacent to Franschhoek which is often a too busy tourist centre. The beds are large and comfortable as are the accommodation facilities. The breakfast is excellent. The grounds and swimming pool are well appointed. We will...

Val d'Or was a "standout" during our Western Cape adventure. Fabulous location, beautiful grounds, spacious and very comfortable accommodations and attentive and friendly service. Breakfast on the terrace was terrific. We should have scheduled another day, skipped the wine tasting and stayed at the pool. If you need some dog therapy, ask the owner to let you play with "Beagle"...

The guest house has a wonderful location and a beautiful view. The gallery room with balcony is spacious. However, the interior is a bit borring and worn out. The bed is nice. The pool area is nice in beautiful surroundings. The breakfast buffet is rather simple. The 'egg' menu is good even though the serving is very plain. The staff...

Val D'Or is value for money - but it is not 5 star luxury on a 4 star guesthouse. Not even close. Room and the bathroom was large and with a great balcony we got a fantastic view to the mountains. The room need some refreshment and at the bathroom the finish in generel was bad. Swimming pool is very...

We were three couples on a West Cape vacation from the states and booked Val d'Or because of the reviews and we were not disappointed. Our three bedroom cottage was everything we expected and more. The staff and Suzette were the best and the breakfasts were scrumptious. We are planning another trip next year and will definitely stay at Val...

We are frequent visitors do Franschhoek and wanted somewhere to stay with our family of 6 including two small boys. The large cottage at Val d'Or proved perfect for us. It is nicely furnished with all the facilities you could need for a weeks stay. Large grounds and a nice pool proved perfect for the children.

We were disappointed in many ways, despite having hoped this would be a lovely place to end our holiday. We had a luxury barn suite which was actually in the single story building which ran next to the main house. The patio was not at all private and looked out onto where the cars were parked which meant people continuously...

Nicola, it is regret that there were no positive aspects concerning your stay with us, at all... We have noted your comments, and thank you for your constructive advice. All we can do is to turn that very "disappointing - average review" into a positive change. Kind regards, Suzette.
