The staff were welcoming and very accommodating. The breakfast was excellent as was the food in the adjacent restaurant (Magnolia). The hotel was accessible to major attractions in the area as well a being an excellent place to just "chill" by the beautiful pool.

Zandile and her staff made this an experience that was very special for me and my whole family. The proffesional way they handled all our guests for my daughters wedding was just textbook stuff. They went the extra mile. Thank you, you made this special for all of us.

Picturesque place with serene surrounding. Rooms are spacious and neat and fresh. The staff is so great and oh, the receptionist by the name of Attoinette was so amazing. She treats you like you are the only guest at their hotel. Ask her of any assistance and she stops everything and focuses on your request until it is at your... More

When we arrived we were put in a very noisy room that was basically on the highway with a broken air conditioner and no bath. They moved us to a room with a bath and a working air conditioner but the carpet was stained, the water was sporadic and the shower was cramped. The restaurant was awful. We had terrible... More

We were a large group on our way to the Kruger Park and Casterbridge Hollow Hotel was the perfect place to break the journey and get to the Kruger Gate early on the following day. Check-in was handled in a very friendly and professional way with a glass of sherry to welcome us on arrival. The rooms were spacious and... More

We stayed at Casterbridge Hollow for a day on 28 May 2014. It was a very cosy comfortable stay since we were not looking for 5 star comfort. The courtesy shown by the staff won our hearts! The food at Magnolia was very good and suited our pallet. We would recommend it as an excellent option en-route to Bongani or... More

We were travelling as a group of friends and arrived to a most warm welcome by the staff, Zandile and Mpho The dinner at their restaurant Magnolia was excellent with Elvis taking good care of us. The rooms were spacious and warm for the cold winter nights Thank you Jamie and your team for a superb all round experience

Overnighted at the hotel. Fabulous from the moment arrived to departure. Assisted by Mpho and Zandele at the front desk who made everything quick and charming. Fabulous and stylish room with great bathroom. Breakfast at Magnolia restaurant was delicious. Great staff. Highly recommend.

The room was simple, spacious and clean with comfortable beds. The staff were friendly and the breakfast at Magnolia next door was a highlight! We had a couple of niggles though. When we arrived we found the towels were not changed from the previous guests and there was also no minibar. The wifi was very slow and stopped working completely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set amongst the sweet Mango trees of the original Casterbridge Farm...Casterbridge Hollow Boutique Hotel, a mere 15 minute drive from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, is ideal for the business traveller and is a convenient base from which tourists can access Kruger National Park and the Panorama Route.Casterbridge Hollow, Mpumalanga’s first “green hotel”, is a concept that has evolved with great charm, using the simplest and most basic materials. Colours are reminiscent of romantic hillside villages in Provence and Tuscany. It’s contemporary style is enhanced by richly textured baskets, sleek furnishings and designer fabrics featuring proteas and ‘bokkies’ which give the hotel an original handprint and convey its South African roots. Accessories such as wire-work baskets, hand-crafted tiles and decorative light fittings were all made by local artisans. ... more   less
