All time favourite: Dunstone country house. As part of our X-mas trip to Western cape we stayed 2 nights at Dunstone. All in the family of four loved it! The estate and rooms were beautiful. The pool was comfortable and we could view the surrounding mountains and horses and pearl hens while relaxing in or outside the pool. The food... More

Spent 2 nights in the Vine Room. Very spacious, comfortably furnished with own fire place and Jacuzzi. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast excellent. Each evening between 5 and 6 they serve their house wines in the lounge at no cost. Discovered Dunstone Shiraz which unsurprisingly got 5 stars from Platter. If you are lucky with the weather, you will... More

We booked a couple of rooms on Dunstone's 'Winter Special' and visited there with friends. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home. It was a FREEZING day, but our rooms (Honeysuckle and Lavender) were warm and toasty because the underfloor heating had been turned on earlier that morning - that's what I call attention to... More

We were so impressed with the attention to detail that Dunstone offered: from personalised service, to beautifully decorated and thoughtfully eqyipped rooms. The views over the surrounding mountains are just spectacular. The offering of coffee and cake, followed by an hour in which one sample the estate wines, free of charge, while relaxing on the veranda, are special added touches.... More

A hidden gem in Wellington. Our rooms were great, the service was really excellent. The dinner was excellent as was the Dunstone Shiraz! Location and setting, nestled in the back of Wellington under the mountains was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay.
