We received an upgrade without asking from 2 rooms to a cottage which was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The terrce had an amazing view to the pool with the mountains as backdrop. The service here was tremendous: everyone was so helpful and friendly. And the breakfast was great too!

Lovely accommodation - spotlessly clean, well decorated and furnished, fabulous balcony - a real home-from-home. I can't rate this accommodation highly enough. The pool area is so relaxing and the gardens are beautifully maintained. Staff are genuinely welcoming and the owner could not have been a better host if she had tried - we are already trying to move other...

We spent 4 nights at Val d'Or in December 2016. We will definitely return in the near future. The self catering unit we stayed in was really spacious with a great kitchen and private braai area. The unit was neat with modern features and proper bedding. We had a spectacular mountain view as well. The staff is friendly and helpful....
