Good day.  We were visiting Dullstroom for the weekend and were told by people in town there is a show jumping event taking place at Dunkeld Country estate the same weekend. On Friday the 6th of February we decided to go to Dunkeld and speak to the relevant person in charge regarding the Advance rides they have on Facebook. As we are... More

A weekend a way was just too short. I would have loved to stay at least another week at this lovely resort. Loved the horses, dams, lovely walking trails and just the general abience of the place made we want to stay as long as I could. Also very close to Dullstroom which is a huge plus in my book....

Our wedding was in March 2014 so we received a complimentary anniversary weekend from Dunkeld. We stayed over in a RVI unit and the surroundings in this estate is truly amazing. The front desk and lounge area has been upgraded and is really beautiful. The only problem we had was similar to a year ago. The maintaining of the units... More

The "Kingfisher" luxury unit was very disappointing. There was no shower - only a bath which had cracks in the enamel (a bacteria collector). The cold water tap in the bathroom basin was impossible to close, so the tap ran constantly. The toilet had a leak and constantly stank of drain - disgusting !!! Nearly every blind in the house...

We recently stayed at the Holiday Club at the Dunkeld Country Estate and I was so totally impressed that we are looking to book again soon. Upon our arrival we went to reception to pay our Park fees for the weekend and were greeted warmly by a number of staff who shook our hands and gave us a welcome drink.... More

A magical world opens up for young and old as you drive through the gates of Dunkeld. First impressions are lasting and the friendly faces at the estate's main gate and reception area did exactly that. The service didn't stop there but we were delighted with friendly service throughout our stay. The Dunkeld estate is picturesque with cycle and hiking... More

We've just had the privilege of sharing a friend's 60th birthday with 50 other guests at Dunkeld Country Estate. We stayed in the Holiday Club which was comfortable and pleasant. The units may need a bit of upgrading but they are beautifully located and well separated from each other. Our bathroom definitely needed a new shower head! The Estate itself... More

I paid a R1200 per night for what I thought was 4-star accommodation and I did not receive 4-star accommodation. I am aware that mistakes happen and some events are out of control. I am generally not a confrontational person so I was about to let some of the issues go on the weekend, but there were just too many... More

We spent a week at Dunkeld Country Estate from Friday the 9th of January this year in two different 3 bedroomed self catering cottages viz Cottage number 17 and Cottage number 8.

Although set in beautiful surroundings, this place was the worst holiday we ever had. Chalet was disgustingly filthy and smelly. Pillow covers not changed.
