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.

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.

To return to Val d'Or is like returning home. The warmth of the welcome and the effort that is in the tiniest details to ensure your maximum comfort. The staff are as attentive and gracious, just as the management. I just love staying in this beautiful place of tranquillity, breath-taking scenery and closeness to nature. What more can one ask...

Beautiful house, grounds and premises, great view, relaxed and welcoming staff, nice pool, great breakfast. Room was a bit hot but maybe we should have left the french doors open. Highly recommended spot.
