Very very disappointing. According to me NO STARS AT ALL. We booked in and left after about 2 hours. Did not stay there at all. Garden unkept. No garage for vehicle, very unsafe, off main road, gate to property and fencing in bad condition. Does not feel like being in nature reserve. Security gate not working, chain and padlock being used. How can you swim and rest when you feel so vulnerable. Not my cup of tea. Will have to drive to destinations next time to check before booking.

Great place for some time out.The accommodation was excellent,very neat and tidy and friendly staff to assist us.The Table Tennis, Pool Table, Dartboard and fishing kept the guys busy.Will definitely be back.

Awesome place to spend the holiday, only 100Km out of Johannesburg but once you there it feels like you have gotten away from the busy life we live. The place is very well equip for the young and old.  The rooms, kitchen, lounge, and HUGE outside patio really compliments a stay of 8 people with plenty of space. A Big Thank you to Sharyn and Terry for being so accommodating. We will definitely see you again.

Vaalium is a beautiful, spacious property, perfect for a quiet and intimate getaway.The furniture and appliances are however old and dated and the property is filthy and requires extensive cleaning.
