If I were to rate our stay on how the property looks like, it would've been 5 star perfection! But the only thing that is perfect, is the estate and nature. We had trouble to find the reception, but managed to get there eventually, just to find no one at the desk. No welcome drinks, nothing. Finally when someone arrived,... More

We stayed at Dunkeld, what a wonderful experience. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The unit we stayed in was very clean. We really had a lovely weekend and will return for a second visit.

Great place if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of town life. Has it all, walks, horse riding, fly fishing and more. Staff very friendly and helpful. Dullstroom yhe village has a lot to offer and it's only an hours drive from Johannesburg on the way to the Kruger National Park Game Reserve.

We arrived after having booked a 3 bed, with fire place, braai facilities. We got nothing close, 2 separate apartment rooms above a restaurant. We were moved to another unit I the second day. It's a beautiful estate, but I won't ever recommend it. The reservation cannot be trusted.

This place is like a 2 star. No hot water in one of the rooms. They are renovating - that's ok. But no excuse for appalling service, awful breakfast buffet. No Wi-FI - it's just not working. Staff do not wear uniforms. Horse riding is great. Location beautiful. Place is dilapidated. Check in experience awful. The Protea road lodge (1... More

We had an overall fabulous two night stay in two Lodge rooms at Dunkeld Country Estate. Booking was expertly handled by Candice Robbins from Touchdown, great welcome by Mpho and his team, efficient check-in, elegant country-style luxury rooms and great food at the Black Swan. What more can be asked for in the beautiful surroundings of this country estate? I... More
