Needing to get out of the rat-race, the family headed off to Dullstroom for the weekend. The check-in was quick and efficient and the unit was complete and relatively clean with all the necessary amenities. Whilst the unit could do with a few small touch-ups, the surrounding area was stunning with lots of activities to partake in from fishing, horse... More

Absolutely fantastic place to go for a break. Units are well kept with friendly staff. Lots to keep you busy including bike trials, horse riding, trout fishing etc. Shops and restaurants are close by if you feel like getting out a little.

The most fabulous scenery that you will find any other place!! Stunning stables and dams for trout fishing. You cannot take enough photos of this place. The woods is such an awesome place to see and eveything is clean, friendly staff. We will definitely be back

As per all the reviews, the scenery is beautiful and gardens are well maintained. My biggest gripe was housekeeping. At 12h00 on Saturday our 8 sleeper unit was not yet serviced. We went to reception and was informed that housekeeping was anytime from 09h00 until 14h00. In my opinion this is totally unacceptable. Who wants your chalet only serviced at... More

This was our second trip and this time we brought two other families with us. Large guest houses that are set widely apart are perfect for family travel. We enjoyed the trout fishing, the roaming gorgeous horses. Dinner was good at the restaurant, but we also enjoyed having full kitchens and barbecue facilities to make our own. Safe parking, lots...

We got married at Dunkeld on March 27, 2015 and they went above and beyond to make sure it was the most amazing day of our lives. We arrived the day before and the reception hall and chapel had already been set up - we honestly did not have to lift a finger! Everyone was extremely accommodating and friendly and... More

Checked in Thursday and departed Monday. Grounds and facilities were fantastic but the rooms were very disappointing. Firstly on arrival we we were told we were booked into the main house when I specifically requested and central reservations confirmed a RVI cottage. After an hour fighting with reception the front office manager arranged us a RVI unit. Linen was old.... More

We spent a week-end (Fri - Mon) in the Holiday Units through RCI. It really is a lovely enviroment with really nice and plentiful fishing dams, staff pleasant, enough amenities, well kept grounds, we just felt the Holiday Club units lacked in maintenance and needed a bit of TLC, this said we also had a look into unoccupied units namely...
