Breathtaking scenery. Majestic forests. Acres of unspoilt beauty. Just do not sleep over in one of the cottages. The beds are worn out and bedsheets are old and crumpled. Our cottage was dirty with cobwebs everywhere. The towels were old and dirty with brown spots on them. The braai was broken and there wasn't a complimentary bag of wood. Didn't...

The rooms were very disappointing, even despite our request to be moved. The resort is busy and I felt did not offer good value for money. The trout dams are over fished and the food needs a lot to be desired. Overall a disappointing experience.

We return every year and it is always breathtakingly beautiful. The views and overall feel is so relaxed and tranquil. There is more to keep the youngsters busy and out in nature. It is suitable for couples, families and even friends.

We had a family stay and booked 3 self catering chalets next to each other. The chalet's are well equipped (although only a small double bed) and the view is stunning. It's a fantastic place to stay for a peaceful and relaxing breakaway

We have been coming to this lovely place for about 15 years. The staff are always friendly. The setting is wonderful. We usually stay in the hotel rooms, which are soon to have a "make over". The restaurant, bar, lounge area and reception have been redone. Although we miss the old cosy place, the new decor is very bright and...

The setting of this establishment is great and there is lots to do and explore. The area is obviously famous for trout fishing (which you certainly can do in the many dams scattered around the property) but if you don't fish (like myself) there is more than enough other activities to keep you busy - zip-lining, rock climbing, game viewing,...

No suited for people with disabilities, The bathroom was full of crawling insects every morning. The restaurant was awful. The grab rails that is installed in the disabled bathroom at reception is installed incorrectly and making use of the facility very difficult.

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
