I really enjoyed the stay. The place was very well kept and clean, and I felt that it was extremely secluded and tranquil. Only would have loved to catch a fish! There wasn't anyone that caught during the weekend which was a bit off putting! Otherwise, really enjoyed it!

Dinner at the Dullstroom Inn Hotel was excellent and well-priced. The town itself is pretty, but once you've been through it, there's not too much else to do.
Excellent venue for golfers and fly-fishing enthusiasts!

Okay. 3 out of 5
