A slam dunk every-time! The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious and the hotel is not bad looking either! Just a short walk across the way to the Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre to indulge in caffeine, chocolate or even a movie at the very quirky cinema.

The staff are very friendly and helpful but this is not a Boutique hotel. The rooms are large, comfortable and clean and its always a bonus to have a fridge in the room. I was a little taken aback not to see long life milk at the tea and coffee station but Cremora. I thought that this additive went out... More

The staff of Casterbridge make me feel like I am coming home each time I visit. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, with comfy beds and crisp white linen (my best!). The setting is so stunning, it refreshes my soul each time I am here.

I stayed for a 2 night visit with my daughter. After a long flight from UK the staff were so friendly and made us most welcome. Would definitely come back again. We were welcomed like friends. The whole stay was pleasurable and highly recommended.

We recently stayed at Casterbrige Hollow in White River. The rooms are spacious, clean and have all the amenities that one would want. Our room looked onto the pool and garden area which was very tranquil. The hotel is located close to restaurants, shops, gym and a spa and one can easily stroll around the premises.

The facilities are really cool (including the pool in winter) ,but that is compensated by the warm and friendly staff. The gardens and the courtyard give Casterbridge Hollow a very natural feel. Highlight: The Gym

Lovely hotel in a pretty area. Perfect stopover on our way back from the Timbavati. Spacious and well appointed room. Friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast at the Magnolia cafe. Lifestyle centre with great shops and restaurants next door. Will definitely return to this hotel.

A very comfortable and reasonably priced hotel in White River. Conveniently situated near restaurants and coffee shops. Rooms are large, king size beds and very well appointed. Only downside is the road noise from a busy intersection behind the hotel. this dies down by about 10pm and starts again around 8:30am in the morning (on weekends anyway).
