Set in a very pretty estate, we stayed in Val d'Or for a couple of nights, in two adjoining rooms on the top floor of the main buildings. These were the only two rooms in the main building, so we had a lot of privacy which was nice. The rooms were spacious, and the bathrooms were very large. There was...

Very beautiful premises and garden. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK in terms of diversity, staff will come and ask you which hot plate to have (eggs...) and serve you with hot beverage (coffee...). Very large rooms. Room service and cleanness was above expectation: bed sheets were arranged when we went out for the day, and then again...

The estate is perfectly located to city center and yet far enough to enjoy the serenity and peace of the place. Beautiful landscapes. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Excellent value for money.

Was one of the final bits of our roadtrip. Great service by the gentleman that checked us in on the evening of our arrival. He was very helpful (suitcases / calling a farm nearby for fly-fishing, etc.). Room was really big (2 adults + 2 kids), with option to connect to more rooms in the house. This the only slight...

Our stay at Val D'or couldn't have been better. With two grandchildren in tow, we opted for the largest unit, which came fully equipped qith kitchen, and ample space. But, it was beautifully and tastefully furnished, giving the feeling that we were truly in a Franschoek home environment. The breakfast was sumptuous and excellent, the staff was most attentive, and...
