Cradle Valley Guesthouse where to begin...

Booking this getaway was really fast and easy thanks to Jannel the Guesthouse Manager. She mentioned the Valentine's Day special package which I didn't hesitate to grab- accomodation, 3 course dinner and breakfast all included.

Only a 25 minute drive from Fourways Johannesburg and you arrive to an absolutely stunning Guesthouse.

It was just a breath of fresh air to be away from the city and to be surrounded by Mother Nature. ( A perfect 1 night getaway if you just need some peaceful, quiet time)

The guesthouse is blessed with a beautiful view. It has a pool area where you can laze around and tan. I loved the rustic decor and the attention to detail not only in our room but throughout the guesthouse and wedding venue.

I saw another couple that had preordered a picnic basket and that is something I will definitely do next time I go.

Lunch was simple, yet delicious. Service was excellent and dinner was an amazing 3 course menu pre-ordered and it was just a very romantic evening that I will always remember.

A MUST visit to this peaceful, beautiful, relaxing GEM of a Guesthouse!

Thank you for a wonderfully stay. 🙌🏻

I decided treat my partner for his birthday, and booked a night at Cradle Valley Lodge, well it was not a mistake. From the moment we got there, we were greeted by a friendly and very helpful lady. We got taken to our room - absolutely beautiful!! The view, the garden, the pool was like our very own paradise.

The staff at Cradle Valley decided to leave a thoughtful birthday card as well as champagne in the room for my partner.

Breakfast was out of this world, and so much thought and detail is put into it.

We had an amazing time, and have been and will carry on recommending Cradle Valley Lodge to people.

Great Job Guys :)

Our first impression was that of cleanliness. The rooms were immaculate, and extremely tidy and neat. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. It was close to the wedding venue and had very good security features. The next morning we had breakfast and spent some time in the garden and at the pool before we left. I would definitely recommend it to anybody and will go back for a weekend away its close and yet it feels like you are in the country.
Thanks to Janel and Wilme who helped a lot with the booking. Very friendly and extremely helpful.

My girlfriend and I booked 3 nights at Cradle Valley Guesthouse and we liked it so much that we decided to stay an extra night. We were treated to a lovely breakfast every morning , the pool is great, the rooms are clean, the service is excellent and it's very peaceful. Perfect for a romantic getaway. We wanted to have a braai on our final night there and everything was set up beautifully for us by Jannel. She brought the braai and tables, chairs, plates etc... for us and we had a lovely braai under the tree and african sunset. 5 stars

Good morning Thank you for your interest in Cradle Valley. Yes, we have a pool on the premises. We do not have a shuttle service available. But we can defnitly organize one for you. Always better to book at Lion and Rhino reserve, especially for a game drive. We look forward to hear from you soon. Kind regards The Cradle Valley Team
