We had an excellent Family weekend , accommodation and food was awesome and the hospitality even better. The outdoor activity - quad biking was a highlight for the family. We have already booked our return weekend in October in order to enjoy the surrounds even more , pool and game viewing.

Always a pleasure visiting Dawsons, this was my third visit and the quality is unsurpassed. We were welcomed with hot chocolate and checking in took all but 2 mins.

Comfortable stay, just need a Boma where you can relax under the starts, especially after a Conference the whole day. Lights in the room is a bit weak, but understand you are in nature. Overall Dawsons is a stunning place and will recommend it to any Business.

We stayed at the homestead and very good. This place is so beautiful and the homestead is perfect for some isolated unwinding time. Only feedback other that this is that some of the beds need new mattresses now. Otherwise excellent.

What a wonderful place with tranquil secluded areas of retreat with lots of privacy. The staff were amazingly friendly and met our every need. Management were keen to ensure we had a superb stay. Will definitely come back possibly with the kids for a family getaway.

An excellent stay with excellent staff and fantastic catering. Confusion about the booking price though, as website had captured one person although booking was for two. The additional cost for the second person was more than double the cost of the single person which is not understood
