Travellers' Choice
The Highlander was named after the Scottish Highlands, which the area around the hotel resembles. The hotel, which was formerly known as the Peebles Country Lodge, was voted the ‘Most Romantic Hotel‘ during the International Luxury Hotel of the year awards. The retreat has become popular as a stopover accommodation option for visitors traveling to and from the Kruger National Park. This welcoming country retreat in Mpumalanga caters to both the corporate and leisure guest. To keep with the romantic setting of the hotel, the rooms feature combustion fireplaces and a full range of amenities. The bar at the hotel is every whisky lover’s dream, offering over 200 single malt whiskys to choose from. The hotel is closely located to all the main shopping areas and guests can easily walk from the hotel to the shops and spend a day browsing. The hotel features a bar, a restaurant, and a spa.

Excellent stay at the Highlander. We brought a group of Motorcycle Tourists from the US and Europe and everyone in the group loved the rooms and the service. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bar has an amazing selection of various beverages, especially whiskey. See you again in a month!

This was our 2nd stay at the The Highlander Hotel and once again, they did not disappoint. Having a couple of whiskies at the bar with John & Lucas is always a treat while also learning about the different whiskies ....... It was a bit chilly on the Friday evening and when we came back from dinner, the fireplace in our room had been lit ....... The staff of The Highlander Hotel always go above and beyond!!! The location is also perfect when visiting Dullstroom, you can walk to town from there.
