Walkersons Hotel and Spa is surrounded by the undulating landscape of the Mpumalanga Highveld, just outside the popular rural getaway, Dullstroom, which is in turn just a few hours’ drive from the Witwatersrand.
Sparkling lakes, waving fields of grass dotted with picture-perfect dairy herds, grazing horses and darting birds are characteristic of the countryside here, as is a pervasive sense of tranquility and well being. Walkersons Hotel prides itself on upholding this unique atmosphere and many a couple have opted to get their married life off to a blissful start at this prestigious venue.
Rest assured that your wedding will be as professionally run as it is picturesque, at this grand old country hotel, with dedicated and experienced staff on hand to cater to your every whim.
The private chapel is perfect for an intimate ceremony, with a maximum capacity of fifty standing guests or thirty seated. Should you require more space, the adjoining courtyard can be used to allow your service to flow into the great outdoors, and increase the numbers to 100.
Nearby, the Walker Room is the ideal place for an elegant and memorable reception, featuring dining of the highest ilk. Skilled chefs go out of their way to make every serving an all-encompassing experience, which addresses all the senses, and you won’t be left feeling like you have been mass-catered for at this establishment. Dullstroom can undergo chilly weather at times, and the venues at Walkersons are well-equipped to turn any dreary day into a cozy celebration, with roaring log fires and hearty fare, accompanied by a fine selection of wines and sherries to light up your meal.
When the sun shines, as it usually does, meals can be taken al fresco, and you could even arrange for a gourmet picnic to maximise the countryside charm of your special day.
Should the wedding party choose to make a weekend of it, there are pastoral diversions such as trout fishing, scenic walks, bird watching and horse riding to fill the moments when they aren’t relaxing on their private patio or treating themselves at the onsite Amani Spa.
