The Highlander Hotel, Dullstroom
Some work needed
Upon arrival we were disappointed in that many of the items / features that were published on the booking sites were in fact not offered. Contrary to what was advertised, there was no airconditioning, coffee maker, in-room telephone, Wi-Fi in rooms nor luxury bedding. In fact, the bedding was almost threadbare with a hostel-type blanket underneath the duvet to give some warmth. The mattress on our bed needed replacement. We highlighted this to the current managers. Their explanations made it clear why the features were not available and why the buildings were in need of urgent maintenance. Apparently the hotel group had been liquidated and was recently taken over by new owners. Efforts are underway to catch up with a two-year backlog of neglect. The rooms but especially the common areas have a luxurious and classy feel. Rooms are huge but as mentioned need some maintenance. The spirit of the managers who were apparently appointed two weeks prior to our stay, made our stay memorable one. The breakfast was outstanding and all staff offered service with a smile. I am confident that advertised quality and a 5 star rating might be achieved.

Fantastic palace
This hotel is amazing. The staff couldn't do enough for you. We were made to feel like lord and lady. Drinks were very reasonable in price. Although we were the only guests in the hotel the staff were still as enthusiastic as if the place was full. We stayed in suite 1 it was amazing. Had a fire in the fireplace in the evening very romantic. Definitely would stay here again should we ever be in the area. We also went to a whiskey tasting just down the road .. well worth a couple of hours.

Great location for Dullstroom
The hotel was convenient for our overnight stay in Dullstroom. However the hotel room was looking tired and could do with a revamp. Staff member Simon was excellent and had great Public Relations skills. However the staff member on duty at Reception forgot our request for one teabag which was disappointing.

Bed was hard. TV remote didn't work and had to ask twice to get it resolved. room was average. No water on morning of departure. No wireless in the rooms. Lamp next to bed stopped working. Breakfast was below average. Not what I would expect from a 5 star rating or even 4 stars.
