We had an amazing weekend break-away in Dullstroom - will definitely stay at Auldstone House again - Location is amazing - park the car for the entire weekend and enjoy the long stroll to each little shop and restaurant on the main road!!

We were in Dullstroom for a spur of the moment overnight stay and came across Dullstroom Reservations - very friendly and helpful, they booked us into Auldstone House. Lovely, clean 2 bedroom self catering apartment with a balcony - excellent view and value for money! And to top it all there is a whiskey tasting bar downstairs that made my husband very happy! Great experience definitely to be repeated!

Room Tip: Go for suite 3 - beautiful balcony with stunning view!

Visiting the Auldstone House with the Wild about Whisky bar is our favourite breakaway from the city live... It's always a pleasure, friendly staff, amazing scenery and comfortable units for living...


Always a pleasure!! We go back time and time again...

We stayed in suite 1 at Auldstone House for 3 nights and had the best, most romantic weekend! We were greeted with a warm welcome and our room was great and so cosy, the fireplace is a treat! It's walking distance to everything in town, and conveniently right above Wild About Whiskey...perfect location! Thank you Dullstroom Reservations!

We stayed at Auldstone over a long weekend. The self catering unit was equipped with everything we needed. They even filled the ice cube trays and firewood for the fireplace. A very pleasant stay, nicely decorated place. I would recommend Auldstone to anyone...all in all, a very pleasant stay.

We went to Dullstroom for the weekend and decided to stay at Auldstone House because of its location and the whisky bar. Admittedly, Dullstroom is very small but we enjoyed the location on the main road as this meant we could enjoy a walk up and down the main road looking at the cute shops or at worst a 3 minute drive out to dinner. The whisky bar was a great attraction and their collection of over 800 whiskys is the 2nd largest in the world. Tastings are reasonably priced and Eve, Steve and Dave are very knowledgeable hosts. On a rainy afternoon it was great to just roll upstairs to our room after a few whiskys.

We stayed in room 2 which was large and clean/simply decorated. The fireplace was a hit and we lit a fire on both nights.

The only downside is the main road is a through-fare for trucks so can be a bit noisy. Although this would be said for any place to stay on the main road and I only noticed it after 7.30am and it didn't keep me from falling asleep.

I would stay again mostly due to the great hospitality at the whisky bar and the friendly/knowledgeable hosts.

it may have been us or the bed but we both woke up with chronic back and neck pain. Granted the room was very very cold (no heating in the room) but when we woke up we were sore with aches and pains which i assume is from the mattress and pillows. Location is ok but it is on the edge of the small strip. All in all the hotel is not bad but i probably wouldnt stay again.
