We were booked into Dunkeld from the 24th to the 28th. We stayed for one night and only because it was too far to drive home!!! The problem is not so much the service (although this was not great) but the unit we were given was absolutely disgusting!!! If you have a look at the photos, the unit was filthy!... More

This was a return visit with family and friends. This is a lovely estate surrounded by beautiful scenery. I'm very glad to see that renovations are happening all over. This made us more tolerant of the construction and "untidiness". We stayed in 2 2-bedroom self catering units. Basic, but comfortable with most of the crockery etc you need for a... More

We were very disappointed to find that our unit's carpet was absolutely filthy. Both the showers also had mildew in them which was very off putting indeed. Other than that it was okay but will not recommend it in that state

We have visited Dunkeld Country Estate twice and we enjoyed both stays. The estate is set in magnificent surroundings but unfortunately it seems to have fallen into disrepair. That said, the unit in which we stayed was clean and lovely albeit without some expected essentials. We would love to return to DCE but would only do so after improvement.

We didn't stay at dunkeld but had the best food at the new equestrian section! The cycle trails are amazing and everyone made us feel so welcome! Will definitely stay there next time just to experience the food again

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
