What a wonderful weekend with the family spending time at the main complex, we had the opportunity to braai in the rain, difficult to braai when the fire got killed by the rain, bud nobody will say no to the rain. Main complex is a yes to any body.

Four of us, two couples, were exploring the area around Dullstroom and set up our base at Dunkeld. The unit was well maintained and very well cared for. All the necessary facilities were available. Although there are quite a large number of units there was no sense of crowds and noise. The weather was cool with some rain but we... More

We visited the Dunkeld Country Equestrian Estate with friends on the 7th of Jan '16. The Estate itself was beautiful however we noticed several disturbing incedents at the horse trail center. The horses were very dirty, covered in flies, the grooms were late and struggled to catch the horses. Once the horses were caught, children were watching and were allowed... More

We stayed at Dunkeld for the week commencing 4 January in the Woodlands 1 unit. Although the main areas of the resort are lovely and have evidently benefitted from a revamp recently, the self catering units are still in the same condition (more or less) that they were 5 years ago - tired and poorly maintained. As an example, the... More

We stayed here twice during our trip to South Africa and both times it was delightful. We stayed in the hotel, not the self-catering rooms. The hotel rooms were old, but clean and lovely. I had a fireplace and a little sitting area outside the front, overlooking the lakes and fields. It was lovely to sit there and read in... More

The resort is lovely and the trout dam near the equestrian centre is excellent, but the dams near the reception and the old stables need restocking. The unit we were in needs some attention as fittings are falling off and the couches had paint stains on them. The patio could do with individual chairs. Some of the reception staff are... More
