The Old Hotel is a highly recommended property for self catering in Currys Post for tourists visiting the Natal Midlands region.

About The Old Hotel

Dating back to the 1850’s, the Old Hotel at Curry’s Post captures the essence and atmosphere of historic Natal. Beautifully restored and decorated, the original hotel has been rejuvenated, and offers extremely comfortable self-catering accommodation in the heart of the Natal Midlands Meander route.

Self Catering Accommodation

The Old Hotel can accommodate up to 13 people in three separate units, The Main House (the original Hotel), The Old Post Office, and the Postmaster's Cottage. These units can be booked out together, or completely separately, depending on the occasion and the size of the groups. For groups requiring more accommodation, the two cottages in the garden of the Old Hotel can accommodate a further four to six people.

The Main House:
Sleeping seven guests in four bedrooms, the Main House is ideally suited to families or small groups. There is a spacious master bedroom as well as two bedrooms (one with a Queen size bed), one large room with two single beds and a small bedroom with a single bed. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom while the other three rooms share a bathroom.

Staying at the Old Hotel in the main house was a real treat. Very comfortably kitted out with everything a self-catering break needs, it is quiet, peaceful and incredible value for money. The main bedroom was large and had a huge bed, so comfy that I could have spent a week in it! Also, the fireplace in the lounge warmed the cold crisp nights. Victor, who oversees the venue, was so helpful. He washed up our dishes before we woke up each morning, brought our firewood each evening and built the fires for us. A real asset. Would return here in a heartbeat for a much longer stay. A real rare find. Highly recommended.
