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

Wonderful country estate that has remained true to it roots with a lovely cosy feel while still having creature comforts of a 5 star establishment. Great spacious rooms with a fire place and underfloor heating. Lovely panoramic views of the mountains and numerous trout dams. Service is impeccable and not intrusive at all. Lounge areas of the hotel are comfortable... More

My second Conference at Walkersons, and it was as good as it was 5 years ago. A beautiful location, so peaceful, and amazing views.

We loved our visit to Walkersons en-route to the Kruger Park earlier in December. This was the first time we saw the hills and meander this green and the scenery took our breath away. Walkersons did not disappoint – the food was world class and the setting for walks lets you forget about work and leave the city rush far... More
