I just loved this place - cried when I left. It is beautiful. Our room was large with access to decking overlooking the gardens via French doors and the bathroom was huge. Very comfortable beds. Wandering around the excessive gardens I saw Weaver bird nests hanging in the trees for the first time. Breakfast was eaten on the terrace. Dinner...

We stayed in the 2-bed family room adjoining the main building. The bedrooms were large, as were the bathrooms. Kitchen was fully equipped and lounge and dining room massive. The location is ideal as it...

The most beautiful place ever!!! I don't think I've ever been to a better place. We stayed at Val d'Or for 2 nights, and it was the best two nights. We wished we could have stayed longer, and we will definitely be staying longer next time. The service was also just out of this world!

Excellent location, lovely views. Friendly staff. We only have one regret is that we didn't stay for more than one night, there is so much to see in the area and much to enjoy at the guest house. Will definitely go again.

Had a great stay here for about 4 nights at the end of September. The room was spacious and had been freshly painted. There was a generous sized bathroom with a separate toilet and lots of hanging space for the longer stay. We particularly liked the swimming pool and surrounding gardens with views of the nearby mountains. We've stayed in...
