I was lucky enough to spend a week-end with my brother and sister-in-law at the Walkersons Hotel during July. The property has beautiful views and rooms, is very tranquil and relaxing. My brother enjoyed the fly fishing while my sister-in-law and I enjoyed the walks and the spa. The property is near enough to Dullstroom to visit the shops and... More

Good facilities well maintained, competent and friendly staff, outstanding cuisine options to fly fish - walk - cycle ... or do nothing; comfortable rooms in varying sizes and configurations to suit couple or families, with sufficient privacy, and pleasant views; Function rooms well laid out with some choice old furniture, paintings, etc

We were fortunate enough to get the last available suite over the long weekend. This was our first visit to Walkersons as well as Dullstroom. Wow! We'll definitely be back. We stayed in one of the suites towards the bottom of the hotel with the breathtaking view of the mountain and the trout dams. Although the venue was fully booked,... More

The Walkersons Hotel and Spa is a great option to chose when travelling from Johannesburg to the Kruger region on return. It is also a great weekend break away option for locals from Johannesburg and certainly the best accommodation option in Dullstroom! The hotel offers a great Spa experience and the dining is amazing. All of this is complimented by... More

As we entered the beautiful grounds, we asked ourselves why we'd spent any time in the nearby Dullstroom town when we could have rather got to the hotel earlier. Hotel staff went out of their way to take care of us and nothing we asked for was too much effort for them. They made a picnic lunch for us next... More

Dear FlattishEarth Walkersons is a little slice of heaven and we love it when our guests are able to experience the Estate such as you did. A picnic down at the dams is a wonderful way to spend a lazy afternoon! Winter is all about fireplaces, sherry and a good glass of red. We look forward to seeing you again... More

We were regulars to stay at the hotel, but have not been back for a while. The weekend past was our first stay in about 3 years. Although we had an adequate stay, cost cutting is evident everywhere and the hotel does not have the same classy feeling... Fresh milk is the least that could be provided in the room.

Dear TLTG Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Feedback is always welcome, and assists in pinpointing areas which may require further training or attention. I am sorry that Walkersons did not live up to its usual high standards during your stay, and I would very much like to investigate this further. If you have the time,... More

The Estate and the property are outstanding, the hotel service however leaves a lot to be desired! Though we were staying in a private house in the Walkersons Estate we frequented the hotel a number of times to spend a lot of money but sadly were not made to feel very welcome due to rude and arrogant staff.

When driving down the s-curved road to the estate, you already know that this is something special. Your mind, body and soul are immediately awoken!

Dullstroom is a short drive from Joburg and Walkersons is a real treat to get you away from the hubbub. The estate is 800acres with buck, zebra, bird life, small wild cats (if you are really lucky) and, of course, trout fishing. If you are a runner, you can safely head out along the roads in the estate - but... More

This review is overdue by about a year. However, the fact that I am still reminiscing about our night at Walkersons more than a year later is a testament to what an extraordinary accommodation it is. Only a few minutes beyond the town of Dullstroom, the moment you turn off the road to Walkersons and descend into the valley the... More
