A friendly relaxing getaway. Staff are always willing to go the extra mile. Great place for fly fishing, can hire a rod and get lessons if your a beginner. Lovely pub and 1883 restaurant. Lots of outdoor activities.

My rating goes to the beautiful surroundings and the location. That's it. The unit is scored 0/5 due to the lack of maintenance, cleaniness and a hygienic health risk due to the plumbing defects at this unit. Housekeeping is a no go.I love the little town of Dullstroom, but we will not stay here again.

Good Day Unfortunately our stay at Dunked was very unpleasant. In advance I must say that the Farm is truly beautiful and has the potential to be a wonderful destination.

One of my favorite places to get away too when I need a small break from the busy city - Johannesburg. This place is beautiful when it snows and is a must visit! Cozy setup with picture perfect scenery. I've visited Dunkeld more than once and was never disappointed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dunkeld Country Estate is a beautiful trout-and-game resort situated on over 1000 hectares only 3.7Kms from the popular village of Dullstroom. The area, renowned for its sub-alpine climate, high altitude and fly fishing waters, is favoured by city dwellers wanting to relax in the country and enjoy fresh air and panoramic views only 2.5 Hours from Johannesburg. The Resort consists of a central Lodge which offers 13 spacious Hotel rooms dotted around a fishing dam and near the main restaurant/ reception area. Our self-catering accommodation consists of 4 private self contained family suites and an additional 20 self-contained one bedroom chalets. Most of our rooms have an open fireplace to keep warm on those cold, and most popular, misty days. The heritage of the estate has been preserved with the conversion of the old farmhouse into a restaurant, which is more than a hundred years old. Our new reception, lounge and jazz bar was opened in August 2014 and compliments our banqueting facilities which cater to weddings, functions and conferences. We have a stone chapel, tea garden and can cater to your every need. Dunkeld is well known for its forest weddings. The resort boasts many well-stocked dams filled with Brown, Rainbow and Golden Trout, offering fly-fishing enthusiasts from novice to experienced the enjoyment of quality angling time in pursuit of that perfect catch. We are also passionate about introducing children to the art of fly fishing and one of our on-site guides holds a demo and teaching session every weekend. The estate also offers a host of family and child orientated activities. Our horse out rides are very popular as is our kiddies activity program. We are introducing new and fun activities every week. The Estate is located on the famous Panorama Route which takes visitors from Dullstroom all the way through remarkable landscapes to the Blyde River Canyon, Echo Caves and Pilgrims Rest. Dunkeld is also the perfect rest stop on the way to the Kruger National Park and the private reserves located in the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Reserves. ... more   less
