I was shocked to see the review on Vaalnest Boutique Hotel. I stayed there personally and was always treated with the utmost courtesy. The service and food was fantastic, the owners giving it a home-away-from-home feel. Everything was neat and clean and the bedding is far superior to some of the mainline international hotels I have stayed in around the world.
Security was a main priority and everything was securely locked, but the owner's dwellings is just next to reception in case of an emergency.
Vaalnest Hotel is in a remote little village on the banks of the Vaaldam. It is an idyllic setting and when sitting in the room, the restaurant or the lounge the view over the dam is breathtaking and healing.
The owners have many years experience in hospitality and whenever city life is too much, it is easy to take the 1.5 hours from Johannesburg to go and rest, being served with a smile.
I would strongly recommend Vaalnest Boutique Hotel for a weekend breakaway, a company function or a special occasion function. They really are great.
