We have been going to Walkersons for the last 12 years - at least once a year, but mostly 3 times a year (with and without friends). In spite of visiting a significant amount of other similar establishments over this period, there is still no place better than Walkersons. The beauty of the surroundings, the luxury and cosy rooms, food... More

From my arrival, you feel welcome, fire going, 3 course meals, this is a fine establishment. After a hearty breakfast (including whiskey infused oats) the day of leisurely fishing and lovely scenic walks awaits. Trout fishing is very exciting, and with right flies can be very rewarding. Wind the afternoon down with some sherry around a fire place and share... More

A fab. stop-over on our way to Kruger, but we're definitely considering this to be a final destination next time, for at least a couple of days. We stayed in one of the cottages (there are 2 or 3), which have great settings. Whilst the views are slightly obscured by the trees, they give you the feeling of staying in... More

This jewel in the midst of forests, walk ways, dams, rivers and picturistic mountains literally blew our minds. We rented a four star house over looking several dams and rivers, although accommodation was available in the hotel. The house with its four comfortable en-suite bedrooms was very elegantly decorated, yet practical. We enjoyed the fire place and very upperclass braai... More

Thank you for your lovely review of Riverview Cottage. Although I'm sure you would agree that "cottage" does not adequately describe the beautiful house on the cliff! We strive to provide the perfect escape from the buzz of city life and from your comments, it looks like we have succeeded. We hope that you will visit us again soon. Kind... More

We decided to stay at Walkersons after a 10 day self drive trip in the Kruger Park and thought it would be nice to chill for 2 days. This is the perfect place to relax and the scenery is just exquisite. Although the weather was cold and foggy and rainy at times, we did manage to walk on the property... More

Walkersons is a great hotel for a weekend getaway from the rat race of the city.I would recommend the riverview cottage if you are a family. the food offering and quality at the hotel is definitely not 5 star though. It would be better to self cater. The staff are great and so are the facilities for fishing and walks... More

The facilities are good , and the nature around the place is great . But garden around the hotel needs TLC. Staff at hotel was friendly the food was very good . The day spa is average quality and over priced .

Walkersons has kept its consistency throughout our visits year on year and very little has changed. The staff welcoming at Walkersons is very friendly with a good priority set on settling you into your suite. The rooms are still cosy, rich fabrics, roaring fireplaces and thick bed linen. The luxury suites have huge double showers and massive bath tubs! The... More

Walkersons is a true treat. From the long, tree lined, winding road through the estate gates to the main hotel you get a sense of the pampering that awaits you. The rooms are a mix of country and highland chic. The restaurant is excellent serving both dinner and breakfast. Take a wander around the trout dams and down to the... More
