Critchley Hackle Hotel

Reviewed 13 December 2016 via mobile

My husband and self had a two night getaway to Dullstroom. Stayed at Critchley Hackle. Very comfortable, would be extra special in Winter with log fires. Very accessible to town. Jack in the restaurant was special.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled as a couple

Recently visited the Critchly and spent a really relaxing weekend there. The hotel has on Old School feel to it, laid back. The rooms all have a great view of the lake around which the hotel is located and although slightly worn they have a homely feeling. The restaurant served up a really good meal, dominated of course by the local specialty - Trout. All the rooms are great.

Room Tip: If the weather is wet stay closer to the reception area.

A beautiful venue however I think the place needs a revamp. The decor is old and dreary and lacking some energy.
The staff were very friendly and service orientated. Food was good .
Rooms were clean and comfortable but I do think a fresher decor is required .

The restaurant at this boutique hotel in in the seriously upper class. Superbly presented delicious food, with an interestingly different wine list.
The hotel is set around a trout dam, right in the village - and has units for private ownership. Fantastic

Wonderful week end in Dullstroom. Make sure you sample the Anvil ale, they received a gold medal for their beer. The location of Critchley Hackle is wonderful as you can walk to every shop in town. There is a Milleys trout shop just next to the lodge where you can buy fresh trout products.
