Dawsons was our final stop on a tour around Mpumalanga, and as part of a gift for my wife's birthday. On booking we knew it would be a decent venue, however our expectations were exceeded by far. The staff are extremely accommodating with nothing being too much trouble, their attitude and commitment to making your stay both relaxing and enjoyable has made Dawsons one of our top venues in SA.
The food is freshly prepared and of such a high standard we were completely blown away, the wine list is varied and priced well within reason, the rooms are large and well equipped, the activities are very worthwhile and the pricing is exceptional value for money. The only slight draw back for Dawsons is the lack of game variety, but the essence of the venue is not in the game, but in the complete refreshing and relaxation experience.
We highly recommend the quad biking through the farm with the game guide, he is knowledgeable and easy to talk to and make sure you do a picnic lunch when going to Dawsons!
One of our favorite moments each evening was while we were at dinner, the fireplace was lit and by the time we got back to the room all we did was stoke the fire and add more wood, get a book and poured another glass of wine.
There is nothing that is too much effort for the staff at Dawsons, they simply go the extra mile without question, from our private dinner in front of the fire place to having breakfast in the Autumn sun.
Dawsons is an excellent example of how a small venue should be run, thanks to all the staff at Dawsons for making our stay extremely memorable, we will be back!
Ask, they will accommodate virtually all requests!
