After a night in Stellenbosch, we headed to Dunstone for 2 nights to get a more relaxed country experience. We rented the honeymoon suite, a separate cottage with gorgeous views. Divine! Staff service was exemplary, including having breakfast and afternoon tea delivered to our cottage. Hiking was great in the area as well as mountain biking. We opted for half...

We went to a wedding close by and decided to sleep over at Dunstone. It was fantastic, the view, the service, the staff, the food, wine tasting. The rooms were crisp and stunning. All rooms are old stables, so your doors are massive. Well-done team. We will be back.

Our experience was top draw! From the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Loved the afternoon tea and cake service as well as wine tasting in the evening. Was great way to meet other guests that were staying at the establishment. One small negative was, that the wifi signal was not great in the rooms. A possible suggestion...

We have just returned from an unforgettable few days at Dunstone. We stayed in the well appointed Jasmine suite, backing onto a lovely herb courtyard. Easy access to a gorgeous infinity swimming pool. The highlight has been the extra touches like tea / coffee and cake at 4pm as well as 6pm complimentary drinks. This is a great way to...

We had a lovely five night stay here on half board and enjoyed our evening meals at the Stone Kitchen. Tea and homemade cake is provided between 4-5 p.m., followed by wine tasting between 6-7 p.m. when bottles are left out and you help yourself. We normally had dinner at 7.30 p.m. in the Stone Kitchen where breakfast is also...

We keep coming back, but why wouldn't you when the accommodation is perfect even down to the rosebud on our turned down bed. The afternoon tea and cake is a lovely touch but it doesn't stop there, there's wine and nibbles with the other guests at 6 while sitting in the visitors lounge which has an amazing view over the...

First of all, this property is in the most wonderful location, very scenic and peaceful. We stayed in the Manor House which was beautiful and had been refurbished with great care, attention and taste about 12 months previously. The quality of all the fixtures and fittings including the pool furniture was first class. The food at the onsite restaurant was...
