Critchley Hackle is perched on the edge of a lake near the sleepy fisherman's town of Dullstroom. The picture perfect setting, with its fine architecture and location, gives the lodge a very distinct Scottish feel and tranquil atmosphere. Dullstroom offers a peaceful escape and relaxing lake side recreation while touring South Africa.

The hotel offers a total of 23 lovely en suite rooms, each of which are individually decorated. The rooms are built in sandstone and capture the rustic architecture of a bygone era with a homely country feel. All rooms feature en suite bathrooms and fireplaces for cozy winter nights.

Critchley Hackle offers delectable dining with a menu that is prepared fresh every day. All ingredients are sourced locally according to seasonal availability. For a relaxed atmosphere, visit the quirkily named 'Damn Bar'.

Guests are invited to engage in the many activities on offer, like quad biking, horseback riding, hiking, or just kicking back on the patio. Visiting the hotel whilst on holiday on South Africa, particularly the town of Dullstroom, demands a bout of fly fishing. The lodge's relaxed atmosphere and lovely surroundings will leave guests refreshed and revitalized.

Riaan's Review

Critchley Hackle is a fine five star hotel with a wonderful atmosphere, emphasizing the highland theme with which the town of Dullstroom is associated. It is tastefully decorated with good service and fine dining. Critchley and Walkersons are my favorite luxury hotels in this part of South Africa. One of them is sure to be included in the luxury tour itineraries offered by African Sky which visit the Mpumalanga Highlands area. This area is located roughly midway between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park.
