I recently brought a group of 37 people to Casterbridge... When we arrived all the keys were on a table with a welcome drink. My guests were already checked in and assigned a room exactly to the specifications I had requested months before via email.

Thank you to all staff at the hotel for a very enjoyable weekend. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious, the location is good (36 km from Kruger Park) and the breakfast and dinner at the Magnolia restaurant was of a very high standard. On the downside, the first night the noise of traffic was a bit annoying, but the... More

We had a wonderful weekend at Casterbridge Hollow. Beautiful rooms, excellent service and friendly staff. The rooms are comfortable and caters to most needs. The restaurant just opposite has good food and is a good place to meet with friends and family.

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.

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.

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
