About
Description
In the Mpumalanga Highlands a 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg, Critchley Hackle is a Mecca for stressed execs and tourists. The hotel and its surrounding area is a great destination to just chill and enjoy the ...More tranquil setting. The red tinned roof and sandstone building is typically “Old Transvaal”.A beautiful small lake stocked with Rainbow Trout awaits guests at their front door. We have trout rods and flies for the use of keen fisherman. Please note we do not practice catch and release, so your catch of the day is weighed and sold to the proud fisherman. Our team will be happy to either cook and or package the fish to be taken home.Ideally suited for both business and leisure, we offer luxurious country accommodation and leisure activities. Less
