Ideally located for a romantic weekend getaway in Dullstroom. Lovely views looking over the dam and the ducks. Fireplace in the room is a must for winter. Decor a little tired but still charming nonetheless. Minutes away from great coffee spots & restaurants. More...

We had the most amazing time at Critchley Hackle Lodge. The staff is amazing and so friendly. Our unit that we stayed in had the most beautiful view of the lake and the fire place inside the unit is fantastic. The restaurant serves the most amazing food. Will certainly go back and stay here again. More...

Mein Cottage, mit einer Veranda und damit Sicht auf den davorliegenden See, hatte eine geschmackvolle Einrichtung im englischen Landhausstil. Dullstroom ist eine liebliche und sehr ländliche  Kleinstadt mit unzähligen kleinen Shops, Cafes und Pubs. Die meisten Restaurants schließen spätestens um 21:00. Nur wenige Pubs sind dann noch geöffnet. Vielleicht kommt es daher, dass grossteils der Besucher Angler sind und bekanntlich sehr früh aufstehen.Abends wird es recht kühl. Dullstroom liegt 1996m hoch. More...
