The hosts were absolutely hospitable. In one of the coldest weekends in 2018, but Alice made me a my family comfortable and warm. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The decor is quaint, neat and tidy. The best sleep I had in years. The breakfast was delicious. My son couldn't get enough of their scrambled eggs.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5

Hi Conrad & Lesley

I thought I will drop you guys a huge thanks for the wonderful stay we had at the Castle.

The both of you are exemplary of how hosts should conduct themselves with strange guests.

I enjoyed Conrads knowledge of the castle very much and found the view from the top overlooking the Town absolutely breathtaking.

Once again thanks for your kind hospitality and awesome reception we gals received.

With kindest regard

We hadn't booked to stay and just turned up unannounced, since the moment we arrived in the beautiful grounds, we were made to feel welcome by all of the staff and other guests. The location is absolutely stunning, set up in the mountains overlooking gorgeous countryside. The castle itself was beautiful and the staff who worked there were all very friendly and a special mention to the chef (Jeremy) His food was the best we had during our whole time in South Africa and the craic we had in the 'bunker bar' was brilliant. The room we stayed in was called Ring o Rosies, and was very large, beautifully decorated, comfy bed and we got a great nights sleep. The owners were very helpful and friendly also and we made friends with their wee dogs who were running about. All in all, I would definitely recommend this place for the sheer friendliness, cleanliness and overall 'feel' of the accommodation. We are hoping to come back to South Africa one day and will definitely stay at Dunns castle again. A real gem of a place. Thank you for having us. Til next time!

Nature was beautiful. The drive around and through the mountain was breathtaking. We had no network in Piketberg but the lady at the Tourism office provided us with a map which enabled us to get our destination. If it was not for her we would have probably had to drive back home and have reached our destination. Therefore thumbs up and 5 stars to the people of Piketberg.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5
