The accommodation in the Holiday club unit was comfortable in a very spacious facility. General cleanliness however requires attention as do some smaller maintenance items such as a broken bedside lamp. Supervision of housekeeping can easily address this. The grounds and scenery is fantastic. It will satisfy most tastes from hikers to those who fish for trout. The on site... More

My wife and I stayed at the estate between 11th and 14th November in RVI unit 28. We had a lovely stay. The unit was comfortable and had all the needed amenities.

Always an absolute pleasure. We stayed at the main house this last visit. It was well equipped and clean with a beautiful patio! We did eat at the restaurant which was a buffet... very disappointing. Cheap and nasty to say the least. Other that the dinner we will continue to return with the family.

We arrived on Friday evening at 6, greeted with a glass of sherry and a smiley face. We then arrived at the unit only to find that it was being worked (building) on and was not made up. We waited for 30 mins to get the key to another unit. I would not suggest staying in holiday club units 1... More

My fiancee and I had a great stay at the Dunkeld, The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is great, there is plenty of free and paid entertainment at the lodge. There's wildlife and antelope right on the doorstep of your room. Really worth the trip.

Took a group of 23 golfers to Highland gate. Golfers and their spouses stayed at Dunkeld Country Estate only 2,5 hours from Pretoria & Johannesburg. The reception for such a big group was excellent and hustle free. They made special arrangement for earlier breakfast for the golfers, and we were able to tee-off at Highland gate at 07:00 on Saturday.... More

Great venue and facilities just the restaurants require attention and staff require training. Restaurants are not up to standard. Fine dining restaurant serving buffet just because a wedding is taking place. Staff require training on menu items and what is available.

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
