The small bed (1,35m) made our stay not very good. Also the mattress was not good. I didn't like the choice of only menu. I prefer a la carte. We don't want to eat a three course menu every evening. We told we want to have only the main course, but they served nevertheless the three course menue. The food... More

I was placed in a room close to Reception which was noisy due to people arriving at all hours. A night club close by kept me awake the Saturday night. Not sure if I would go back. Staff friendly but don't know if that makes up for the lost sleep. Very convenient to the Pilanesberg game park.

So called guest house has smaller rooms but close to national park. Cozy bathroom, rooms have fridge, split a/c, tea cattle etc and for the name of facilities they have gym, spa facility and restaurant. Good for a night stay.

I think I would probably return to Valley View if I wanted to visit the Pilanesberg again. But unfortunately there are a couple of things that might put us off if they are not attended to in the meantime. The food is awesome, the garden is beautiful, the dining room is cosy, and the staff are absolutely fantastic. The problem... More

I have spend a few weekends at Valley View and could never make up my mind about the place. My last visit solved my dilemma. The accommodations are simple but clean and comes with all you need, I use it for a stop over for unplanned photo sessions in the Pilanesberg. We end up barbecuing (braaing) on every occasion and...

Paid rather a lot here in comparison to a lot of other places and I'm unsure whether there's a special foreigner price! Yes you get breakfast but it all felt a bit cheap and low quality again compared to elsewhere. I'm told the area has frequent power cuts so splashing out for AC is quite unnecessary and again they have... More

Not a bad place for Pilanesberg National Park, but a bit edgy around the corners. No regrets, but we don't know if we would return. Staff - mostly nice, but lacked professionialism/attentiveness. We arrived with a small child and a lot of luggage and weren't offered help - very unusual for South Africa. Also, they had a blackout and a... More

The hotel is located in an area not everyone may feel comfortable in. It's hemmed in on all sides by residential houses. It aims for a faux- Romanesque look that doesn't really work. It's hard to disguise an architecturally dull modern brick building as anything else. The bed was acceptable. The bathroom dark and cold (it was May, which is... More
