I stayed at the Valley Lodge the last weekend in January 2008. I was organizing a special event, and the staff at the hotel did very well helping me organize the dinner, as well as special surprises for the event (flowers, cake, etc). The Superior rooms were the ultimate luxury, although even though I asked for one overlooking the river, I didn't receive it and they were all booked when we checked in.
The food is mostly buffet, which was good and with a wide variety; we had to fight to order off the menu (for lunch, we didn't want a whole buffet, nor wanted to pay for so much food). The breakfast and dinner were great. The setting was beautiful, and we saw zebra, various buck, wildebeest, and lots of varieties of birds.
The spa was wonderful - one of the best massages I received in years.
I would recommend the valley lodge - just not the standard rooms. The bathrooms need to be updated, although the living part of the room was fine. The luxury and superior rooms were fine.
I would highly recommend this place for a relaxing stay!
