Lovely boutique hotel with excellent rooms. Utterly peaceful. Visited in winter. Honeymoon suite very, very well equipped with spa bath, heated floors, massage lounger etc. excellent service too. Did not use any of the amenities, just thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet.

Since our last visit in August 2014, the kitchen renovation is complete and the staff now offer an excellent service. Every meal is unique,freshly prepared and delicious. From the security check-in at the gates to the personal greeting by the general manager to the attentive service by the staff during your stay, all adds up to a lasting experience. The... More

We stayed at Walkersons in 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay so we wanted to go back there during our South African sojourn this year. We booked a private house on the estate, intending to use the hotel for drinks and meals and other facilities (riding, fishing etc...) whilst we were there. We went-up to the hotel on the first...

What a find, this hotel has it all. Amazing location, great walks, fly fishing, super friendly and helpful service, a top class restaurant and fantastic rooms. You pay a lot more to stay here than other hotels in Dullstroom but it is worth it. I fell in love with fly fishing during my visit. My wife and I did the... More

Walkersons is a place where one still knows why you might be paying a little bit more, but you feel special, welcome and it beautiful. Attention to detail from beginning to end. We have a long standing relationship with Walkersons, we got married there at the end of 2001 and returned annually. On Christmas day we booked for breakfast and... More

Thank you for your kind comments. You are proof that many of our guests arrive as such, and leave as friends who return time and time again. We hope that bridal couples of the future are able to hold fond memories of Walkersons as you do. I will most definitely pass your praise of the Eggs Benedict to the chefs.... More

Graded Five star, Walkerson's is nearer a 3 star than a 5 star resort, with only fishing walking and riding as general recreational options. If you don't fish or ride that leaves walking, so unless you fish for trout, this may be a problem. Wifi was a erratic and only in the reception area and cell phone reception shocking. In... More

Many thanks for your positive comments on the hotel staff & meals the kitchen team prepared. We also appreciate your feedback on the wi fi & cell phone reception - unfortunately this is a little harder to rectify given our location and frustrations which 3rd party suppliers. But rest assured, we are doing our utmost to improve these areas. Kind... More

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Kate who personally showed us to our room. We went to dinner and were served by Bongani who provided excellent service. The food was beautifully presented and out of this world! The bedroom and en-suite bathroom was beautifully appointed with everything one could possibly need. After a good night's sleep in the comfortable... More

From the friendly and warm staff, to the luxurious room where every small detail is thought of, (umbrellas, torches, glowing fire in the room,,,)- a special evening with a delicious dinner and breakfast....we will be back - hopefully when the mist is not so thick that we can go for a walk!

Thank you for your lovely comments. There are not many places in South Africa where one can enjoy a cosy fire in November! The weather in Dullstroom can be 4 seasons in a few hours. We hope that you will be back to enjoy a stroll around the estate hopefully on a mist free day. Kind regards, Kate More

We stopped here on our slow way up to the Kruger Park area. Great location, what a view! We stayed in one of the lakeside cottages on the well-kept grounds. Superb food being served for dinner and breakfast. Clean accommodations. The fire place and the outside showers made for a special stay.
