After a 3 week camping trip around Namibia and Botswana we decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Casterbridge Hollow Boutique Hotel at the Casterbridge lifestyle shopping centre just outside White River. Having only ever stopped to savour the lovely shops we always wondered what the hotel was like. Well, blooming marvellous! A wonderful welcome by the receptionist... More

Friendly, welcoming staff, enormous room with huge king size bed, crisp linen, balcony with view overlooking the pool....Meals are served next door at the delightful Magnolia Café and Restaurant. We sat outside under a pergola with vines, enjoying a light... More

Great hotel with easy access to local tourist sites and Kruger Park. We booked a family room which comprised of a large king size bed and two single beds which are in there own open plan room adjoining the main bedroom. Thus plenty of space for everybody. Large bathroom with 2 separate basins, a bath , shower and private toilet.... More

I stayed one night here on my way to Kruger, and this hotel was just perfect. The room was comfortable, and very large, the restaurant nearby was pretty good (both for dinner and for breakfast), the staff was very kind, and the location very nice.

After searching high and low in South Africa for our perfect Wedding location, my wife and I finally found it! Casterbridge Hollow and adjacent Magnolia Café knocked us out of the park from the moment we found them. The hotel and restaurant combination are first class and are able to cater for big groups like weddings with ease. Situated a... More

Stayed one night in this hotel as part of a round-trip in South Africa. Stayed in a twin room on the side of the road (bit noisy in the morning, when heavy traffic starts) The rooms are clean and quite large. The pool area is a great lounging spot after a couple of hours driving from Johannesburg. Breakfast is served... More

Large rooms, gigantic and wonderful bed, well-apointed, great bathroom with separate shower and toilet, large-sized toiletries... all good about the rooms. Be careful when booking that your room isn't on the side of the busy road heading towards the Kruger - heavy traffic starts as early as 5am, and believe me, you'll hear it. Beautiful large pool, but with little... More

Very large rooms, highly equipped, with completely separated bathroom, shower and toilet. Very clean and very quiet. Wonderful breakfast buffet. The best of all is the staff.

While the hotel was nice, clean, big rooms, I felt that the reception and staff, although friendly, needed more training. The reception failed to take my card for payment even though I offered it. Then later when we were going out, they notified us that we had'nt paid yet in a not too friendly manner. This through no fault of... More

A well appointed and modern hotel/motel. Staff amazingly friendly and helpful. Comfortable, spacious and spotless rooms. We arrived 9pm after a flight delay. Staff rallied and fussed around us to make sure we could order and receive dinner and raced us through the check in process. Breakfast at the hotels partner restaurant was good but not outstanding - still very... More
