A hidden gem in the hills
Val D'Or is a hidden treasure in Franschoek. We went for the Bastille Day Festival, and our stay was perfect. The room was spacious and comfy, the grounds are impeccably landscaped, and the breakfast was delightful. Go!

Totally Amazing
Amazing Estate, lush greenery with very comfortable rooms and amazing service. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Villa and I must say the pictures online don't do this place justice. It is beautiful, comfortable and very relaxing. Plus very great for young kids as well. We totally enjoyed our stay and loved every bit of Franschhoek.

6/10 Good

Not up to the 4 * when compared to the other 4* I stayed at. Also I did not receive the room that was in the photos called Owner’s Suite. The room I received was not nearly as nice or large but they did not charge me less

A Tranquil Retreat
We stayed at Val d'Or a couple of years ago and it was an easy decision to return once we had made our minds up to visit the Winelands again. The essence of Val d'Or is its tranquility and seclusion amidst such beautiful mountain scenery but despite the seclusion it is easily accessible directly from Cape Town or from Franschhoek itself. The plethora of wonderful restaurants and wine estates are just a stones throw away. The apartments and rooms are spacious and well appointed and the breakfasts offer a wide range of options including fruit, cereals cheeses, cooked meats and of course the cooked breakfast. there is also a very decent bar which is attended during the day and early evening but which reverts to a convenient honesty bar after hours. The staff are friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend to a friend

Couldn't have been better! Fabulous place.
Our stay was fabulous and the pictures don't do this place justice! The owner, his daughter and staff couldn't be nicer. They made dinner reservations for us and recommended some fabulous places. The grounds are beautiful and the location is perfect. One of our air conditioners wasn't working smell they upgraded us to a huge beautiful cottage. They all go above and beyond for their guests and I would highly recommend this guest house estate.
