                              We enjoyed our stay at The Vale with its calm Karoo backdrop. The stone cottages were clean and comfortable with our own braai area attached. The food at the guest house is also delicious and the staff made us feel very welcome. Perfect for a stop over on your way to CPT or JHB or even to stay for a relaxing weekend!

                              We had a really bad night here, the room was completely different from the picture and the room had a really bad smell, especially their toilet, we had to close the toilet door because it was so smelly and I don't think they cleaned it at all. And the price doesn't match the room at all. It's too expensive.I don't think we'll ever go back here again.

                              Very nice place. Love the stone cottages, buildings etc & very tidy & clean. Would have been nice to have been shown around the place on arrival. Receptionist wasn't very friendly. I would highly suggest that you make covers outside each cottage as the rooms are VERY small, so by having a covering it will make the room seem larger. Will also give the option of being able to sit outside without being affected by the natural elements. There is a braai area but can only be used if the weather allows it. I stayed at an awesome game reserve in Ventersburg the night before & only paid R450,...
