We spent two nights at Casterbridge to kick off our honeymoon and it was lovely. Our rooms was very spacious and very clean. We loved the walk in shower and our little balcony was very nice. Mandy helped us settle in and she was very helpful throughout our two days. She even gave us her adaptor for the outlet when... More

Everything was perfect. Beautiful big room with everything you need. Great breakfast and friendly staff. Only tiny downside is the traffic closeby as trucks use the road next to the hotel but its a tiny downside compared to all the upsides!

We had only a short stay in the hotel. We stayed in a family room. Good bedding, all necessary comfort in the bathroom. With the large pool I can image it is a place where one could spend some days to relax. Dinner and breakfast are served in the Magnolia restaurant. At breakfast there was little cozy ambiance. Maybe the... More

I stayed here for one night while in transit from one safari camp to another. The staff here is so friendly, nice and attentive. From the moment they picked me up from the airport until they dropped me off they made sure I was comfortable and well care for. This place has a motel feel but is clean, rooms are... More

Very noisy hotel and felt more like a truck stop with all the traffic noise. Asked for a quiet room on booking, were given a very noisy room. Bath basin wasn't working, shower leaked water all over. We had a dodgy day bed in our room ( looked like leftovers from a previous hotel) The breakfast was shocking! Old plastic... More

It truly blows my mind how every time I stay at this amazing establishment, they go beyond their call of duty to ensure they meet my needs. A permanent smile and such a friendly environment truly makes one believe they have found their second family, beautifully tucked away in the pristine natural surroundings of Mpumalanga. All that is left for... More

We pass through White River several times a year and have been trying various B&Bs/hotels - this one is excellent. The staff are incredibly friendly and the rooms are immaculate. The location is just off the R40 which made the next morning a breeze to get up and get going. Well worth the visit. One area whichI thought let them... More

The staff knew us, our travel plans and did everything to take care of us over our short stay. When we had questions, they were there with answers. The place itself is a small oasis of well kept, well appointed rooms. All in all, it was a very nice stay.

Our stay was very brief, just overnight, but we were very well received in a kind and personal way making us feel more like guests than customers.

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
