#11 of 48 Speciality lodging in Dullstroom
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.

Pretty average spot. Nothing horribly wrong with the place – a bit cold and impersonal. But also nothing that really stands out about it either. If you need a stop for a night or two, be sure to request the newer units and you'll be fine. For Dullstroom, it's probably about as good as it gets. Otherwise, can't recommend staying here for a longer holiday.

Sadly this stay was not a particularly memorable one for us. We had booked the lodge as we were two couples. The booking showed that we could enjoy the use of common kitchen, dining area and fireplaces. On arrival we were even told to stock up on firewood to use in this common space. Sadly however we were informed (only once we had unpacked) that the common area came at an extra charge. This was not what was shown on the original booking and so sadly we had to spend a good portion of our first evening negotiating the use of this area at a cost to ourselves (rather than being able to unwind and relax) We we’re definitely left feeling like it was our fault that the advertised space was at an extra charge and we weren’t really treated with anything more than disdain by the front desk. It is unlikely that we will return to give this place a second chance.

Dear Eugene Your booking would have stated that you only booked a room. And it will also provide you with a description. The common / kitchen area can only be booked if you book the complete unit. We do apologies for any inconvenience caused. The satisfaction of our guests is, and always has been our chief priority and it is with regret that we learn that this was not the case in this instance. We do hope that we have the opportunity of welcoming you back to Dunkeld Country and Equestrian Estate in the near future.

Booked a one night stay at the Dunkeld Country and Equestrian Estate hotel. The directions and room numbers were not clearly marked. The room did not have aircon to warm the room and only had electric blanket which was disappointing for a newer establishment. There was only 1 outside garden chair on the balcony yet these rooms are booked mainly for couples. Reception did not provide WIFI password when checking in and WIFI did not work. No telephone system in place and you have to dial a mobile number to speak to reception
