Yes! - the Main photos are not the correct place - so please look at the reviewers one's! We decided on the spur of the moment to leave JHB for NYE and happened across Critchley Hackle. It was a great find and we would return. Yolande was very pleasant and welcoming on arrival - even walking us to our lake-side room, even though the Lodge was full and I'm sure had plenty else to attend too. Our two night stay was peaceful and refreshing. Both dinners were quality offerings and the leisurely breakfast available all day long is very welcome. The added help for ice buckets for our champagne and then offering glasses plus extra ice in tumblers all showed that the staff are willing to help with anything. We will be back!
