Just had a "girl's weekend" at Cradle Valley Guesthouse. Wilme and her wonderful team couldn't do enough for us. Tastefully decorated rooms, friendly staff, pretty surroundings, well prepared casual food served in a variety of spots dotted around the premises. Use the lodge as a starting point to explore the Cradle Valley, visit Nirox, fly out from Lanseria airport or even go shopping in nearby Fourways, Cradlestone or Clearwater. Although once you arrive, take in the view and start to relax, you'll not want to get in the car again until its time to reluctantly drive home.

Three months after our first visit, we went back for more... of the same. The place has a creative beauty, and the owners seem to be intent on providing an all over experience that will leave you feeling cherished. Absolutely worth every moment and cent.... we enjoyed the views, the food and the excellent service. Thank you!

The staff were amazingly welcoming! Great spot, with nice touches. Great view ! Would highly recommend , great breakfasts and a really genuine team welcoming one , and looking after your every need! The rooms had little touches like chocolates and biscuits and a nice mini bar selection! Fresh fruit salad in the morning was a real winner!

My wife and I spent a weekend at Cradle Valley and I can't begin to explain what a little gem this place is. From the time I booked Wilme added her personal touch to the whole experience and ensured that I had all the info I needed to first get there without any issues but also to provide suggestions of things we can do and place we can visit whilst there. Once you arrive at the Cradle Valley the sense of being "home" is evident and that is carried through the whole stay. You are welcomed with a freshly brewed cup of coffee on your deck every morning with a home made meal that is made especially for you. The setting, room, decor and whole ambience reminds one of a small farm and it is actually scary to think that you are a mere 30 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of
