“A lovely few days stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

We found Valverde a beautiful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.The staff were all friendly and helpful the dining facillity spacious but cosy. The bed very comfortable and the room spacious and a place one could rest comfortably or relax on the sofa reading or catching up with computer work. The grounds are well maintained and a pleasure to stroll through giving a sence of "country" whilst actually just outside of the main city. Very relaxing and a pleasure staying there. I Would definitely recommend this small hotel to others.

We had our Wedding at Valverde Country Lodge last year October 2013, an its nearly our anniversary again. Pamina and her staff went out their way in helping to make this day special. Our wedding was not the traditional Saturday late afternoon wedding. We had a Brunch on Sunday. We had different activities to keep the guests busy while taking picture. the grounds were beautiful and the gardens in full bloom. The decorations and food was outstanding. The guests had a ball and Pamina did not hesitate to jump in and come to the rescue when a simple thing went wrong. AND now with the Olive restaurant offerings meals all the time this is the place where you want your Function to be. VIVA VALVERDE.

If you are looking for a peaceful place with the most beautiful views, Valverde Hotel is for you. My husband and I had the most Romantic evening. The morning Breakfast is a huge feast of choices. Pam & Quino, the owners are very hospitable and caring towards their guests. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top rooms where the sun comes in are stunning!

Valverde Country Hotel is a fun, friendly family hotel. They cater for all a persons needs. They have a new restaurant called the Fat Olive. We had a lovely lunch there. The service was very personal and the chef came out to chat to us and ask us our comments and said he could make anything that our hearts desired . Our room was fresh and spacious. Its a kind of room that you can relax in and unwind after a busy day traveling.

The venue works for larger business meetings as it also caters for weddings. The food is excellent, BUT, the accommodation lacks refinement. My room had a king size bed, but really not comfortable. Seemed like an over used mattress. The venue is in need of maintenance and paint. Some plug sockets did not work, TV did not have remote on/off - so had to get out of bed to switch off. The last night we had no hot water. The catering however was excellent throughout. The proximity to Lanseria Airport should count positively to the venue, but the security of the area is to be verified.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms 14 - 16 are very large.

I really didn't like much about this hotel, I was part of a conference group but I was fortunate I could step away for a couple of days to catch up. There has to be some investment to "spruce" the place up. I was allocated the "honeymoon suite", I think to be fair, this place has its own audience and some of my colleagues really enjoyed it. I was ready to leave as soon as I walked into the room, it is old and uninspiring, the smell in the bathroom is unbearable, i understand about the sceptic tank and all. Flies were dying all around the room, it was just awful and again this is not really the hotel's fault, it is really an establishment that is in the thick of nature, so there has to be sharing of space and resources with other species, I just didn't appreciate. The conference room was dull and outdated and it is really a very long drive to be this disappointed, I think there could be some investment in the decor. I liked the dining hall though, it looks fresher than the rest of the establishment. There is a lot wrong here, it is not terrible, I must say but I just wanted to run back to my car immediately I walked into the place and I couldn't wait to leave.
