The suite was very clean and neat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Alta did a brilliant job with the platter and decorating the room for our anniversary. We will definitely visit again. Thank you to the staff for making us feel at home.

The photos are very misleading. This place is in a very unsafe-feeling part of town, with "views" of the back of the corner shops. The building and rooms are in desperate need of maintenance and everything is just shabby. The pool and bar area are best described as seedy. The disgustingly stained couches had simply been covered in ugly throws.

We could possibly have put up with all that, but the deal breaker was the useless air conditioning. The rooms are simply unbearably hot.

Upon trying the Aircon in room 13 and realizing it wouldn't make a dent in the heat we reported it. A staff member came up and fiddled with the remote and claimed I had it set wrong and the room would cool soon. We left to buy groceries, leaving it on for the hour we were gone and came back to a room no cooler. We asked for a different room, and I was taken to room 8. The air conditioning was no better there. We decided to go elsewhere, and despite having barely even sat down in the room we were only refunded half of our rate. We ended up at Three Oaks. Double the price so we decided to only stay one night, but far nicer. Hartebeespoort, thanks to Palm Valley Inn we decided to get through the activities we've booked and paid for, and head home a day early.

I will start with the pro's seeing as there is only one, the place is very clean. Con's - Very load, sound proofing not that good so don't expect to much sleep. The gate guard does not seem to remember people coming and going, as he checks your gate pass constantly, that really irritated me, but I guess as a security measure not that bad. The worst for we was at check out, I was told when handing in the keys they are first going to do an inspection of the room before they can allow me to check out, as if I am an toddler and need to be checked up on. All and all I do NOT anyone staying here unless it is a last resort and you don't want to sleep in your car. Internet via wifi is almost useless.

My husband booked a one night stay for us at palm valley in as we had a function near there, thinking that it was a good deal because of the nice photographs on the internet....BOY were we surprised!!!The pictures you see on the internet look nothing like the rooms (At least not the one we got!!!) The couches in the living room were covered with ugly cloths...when i lifted them they were stained all over and absolutely horrific!!! The decor (if you can call it that) was utterly tasteless and although the place was 'neat' it really didn't feel all that clean...:-(. the aircon was broken on a hot summers night, and needless to say we got absolutely NO sleep in that place!!The pillows were too puffy and very uncomfortable. They mention a 'private' garden...but the garden is not private at all...it's got a small little gate that anyone can come through and even watch you through. I really felt a bit unsafe there, and the security guards are not at all alert as they should be. This place charges alot of money for very little comfort and ease...so in my books, absolutely NO value for money...

This was not a good venue for a holiday. It is basically a cluster house complex with a few rooms for guests. Photos were extremely deceptive!!

The room was dirty, the couches were stained and filthy, when we went back to reception, the staff fully expected us and gave us the cleaner room without even waiting for us to show them. They said the started cleaning couches etc and didn't get to our room. why would they give it to us in the first place?? unknown....

Although there were small fan heaters in the guest house, it was freezing and there were no extra blankets provided (except the thin duvet) because it was 'self-catering'.... and no mention was made of this in the booking form.
