Spent 3 nights at Valley Lodge on a business retreat. The surroundings are pleasant as it is set in lush green gardens and is a short drive from Pretoria/ Johannesburg. The rooms are big, have been upgraded with modern furnishings and the bed was very comfortable, However the dark furnishings are too heavy and the lighting in the room is a bit faint. I always had to open the bathroom door in order to get enough brightness to read. There is also a train that passes close to the lodge around 4am which disturbs the tranquility of sleep at this hour. The food was quite good for buffet style dining. The staff were attentive and pleasant. I might return just for a day trip to enjoy the surroundings and the day spa but not to stay.
