We liked it because we got it at a discounted rate and thus weren't expecting much. The estate is beautiful and close enough to Dullstroom that you can go have dinner in town and drive back late. The fishing is also pretty good, and the included breakfast was fine. I think a lot of bad reviews on here are people... More

I found Dunkeld Country Estate through Daddy's Deal and wow what a great place to stay! The staff were all very friendly and clearly the staff have been told to welcome each guest upon arrival and shake the guests hand. So we got to shake about 7 staff members hands in a very short space of time. Reception was very... More

We went to Dunkeld for a family weekend. We had 10 chalets. All four chalets at Main House which became our "base" and the other chalets just in front of Oom Jan's Se Tuin. 34 of us all in all and the staff could not have been more helpful. They provided us with a big drum braai and deck chairs... More

Stayed at a Holiday Club 8-sleeper. Besides the occassional funny thing like the heater's power cable that doesn't reach the wall plug outlet or the curtains that are too small to close the windows, this was a really great place to stay. Good, professional service, friendly staff, clean, comfortable and lots of space. Will definitely return.

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 and was booked in a self-catering unit called Piet-My-Vrou, the unit was in a terrible state, we informed reception which moved us immediately to a new unit and apologized for the state I which the unit was, they moved us to the main house to unit number 16 which again was not up to standard.

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.
