We stayed 3 nights in 2 self catering chalets. They were in great need of refurbishment and cleaning, and everything had a neglected feel about it. The lighting was very bad in the lounge/dining area and we didn't like the toilet being in the lounge at all. The shower door didn't close and so the bathroom floor was flooded after... More

We had a little family get away at Dunkeld on the weekend if the 17th of July. I can be a bit fussy and hard to please when we go away and I can honestly say I loved every second. Our unit was clean the bedding was of a good standard the bathrooms were in good condition. The estate offers... More

Went away with a group of friends to play golf for the weekend. We stayed at Dunkeld, the rooms were of poor standard the shower has no pressure, the food was not well cooked, they ran out eggs at breakfast. They did not even bother to light the fire place in the bar. I will not stay there again.

We stayed for a weekend in one of the beautiful 3 bedroom self catering chalet close to one of the trout dams. The chalets are spacious and have all the self catering amenities. The fireplace makes life easy in the cold winter. We arrived during load shedding and the chalet was dark, reception didn't even bother to inform us or... More

We spent a wonderful long weekend away as a family at Dunkeld Country Estate. It is seldom that I long to stay on at a holiday resort, but I would happily have spent another week, and we are already planning a return visit. We stayed in the lodge which meant we enjoyed 5-star breakfasts every morning and although we had... More

The room was not as it specified. Was meant to be a 4 sleeper which is was not. It was so cold that we were shivering and are now sick. And to top off everything there was not enough hot water for us to all bath/shower that night.

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.
