Valley Lodge & Spa is a multi award-winning four-star country hotel. It is surrounded by a nature reserve, interlaced by pristine river and streams. This provides a home to indigenous vegetation and prolific bird life.

Our hotel in Magaliesburg is scenically situated on the banks of the Magalies River. It is just an hour from the cities of Gauteng, Pretoria, and Johannesburg. Valley Lodge offers superior accommodation in a majestic and indigenous garden setting. It is an ideal country escape from the city life, made for reconnecting with nature or enjoying a romantic weekend. Its location near the city makes our lodge the perfect choice for conferences, special events, and business meetings.

The established retreat’s elegant and well-appointed rooms are complemented by delicious cuisine and warm hospitality. An added advantage for visitors is our hotel’s proximity to major attractions in the historic region. These include the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site and the world-renowned Sterkfontein Caves.

The hotel received four Platinum (Accommodation, Dinning, Conferencing & Spa) and one Gold Award (Spa Best Experience). There is also a Floating Trophy for Best Accommodation in the 8th West Rand Tourism Awards. In 2016, the West Rand placed Valley Lodge on their ‘Wall of Fame’ for the four Platinum awards. Valley Lodge & Spa’s Food & Beverage team, has been privileged to receive Platinum status in the 2016 Diners Club International Wine List Awards.

As always the facilities and breakfast was excellent and lived up to our excpectations. Dinners were not great and probably due to covid, no al la carte menus were available, The buffet was way below standard and not good at all. We ended up eating dinner elsewhere.
Other than that a great place that I can always recommend.

Booked 2 nights to surprise my daughter for her 18th birthday as we were going hot air ballooning on her birthday 24th September 2018.
When we arrived at the hotel, there was a cake and tray of snacks in the room for my daughter. Then when we went to dinner, the waiter opened a bottle of champagne (which my husband said that we had not ordered) but the waiter said that he knew that, but it was to celebrate Kiara's birthday.
Valley Lodge was amazing. They made the weekend so special for my daughter. I can't thank you enough. They were so accommodating as well, as on our last morning, even though check out is at 11:00am, they allowed us to keep our rooms until 3pm that afternoon. Valley lodge will definitely have me as a guest again and soon.
Thank you also to Afristay. You are amazing. You gave us a wonderful travel voucher, which in this economic climate helps a tremendous amount, and were very patient with me whilst I was trying to sort out dates etc. Afristay and Valley Lodge & Spa Rock. Many thanks, especially Jeanette Thapelo, who organised our stay and obviously was the 'Fairy God Mother' who organised all the lovely touches.
Please just remind me to book Room 7 for my Mum the next time, as she is disabled, with only one leg but she managed in our rooms.
