      What a lovely place to stay!!! Stayed 3 nights with our family and really enjoyed it. Smart, comfortable, super clean, spacious, safe, walking distance from some shops and restaurants. Only one negative: would be nice to have a mirror to do your hair and make up in each bedroom and not jut in the bathroom. My daughter and I had to use my sons bedroom to do this as his was the only bedroom  with a mirror and hair dryer. We will stay there again any time!!!!

      Our stay at the Trout and Butterfly was lovely - the house was beautiful, and so clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the space and the fact that each room was en-suite. We would stay there again if we visited Dullstroom again.

      The following should be considered:1. Heaters placed in the two rooms were not sufficient to keep them warm2. Bathrooms were freezing3. Kitchen inadequately stocked in terms of cooking utensils - ie knives were blunt, peeler terrible4. DSTV should be included in the rate as well as wood. We have stayed elsewhere for half the price and the above were included5. Only one remote was given to us when it accomodates 8 people. More remotes/ keys should be given6. Directions to the place on the map were outdated7. Fire place did not have glass and therefore wood burnt far too quickly
