I travel to White River often for business and always stay at the Casterbridge Hollow. While not a typical "business hotel," it has all the amenities one needs...internet access, meeting room, conferencing facilities, access to a gym, restaurants in close proximity and friendly service. It's much nicer to stay here than other boring business hotels!

The room was lovely, loved the sliding doors that close off the bathroom. The food at Magnolia Restaurant was excellent. Cristyl and Antoinette were very attentive and helpful during our stay, thanks ladies.

Found this hotel excellent ! Friendly staff, clean rooms, and excellent maintained grounds. Stayed for 2 night while here for a wedding and found it staff very accommodating. Rooms are big and have beautiful on-suit bathrooms. Great for a trip down to the Lowveld

Great Service and amenities, good food, good location if your business is outside of White River. Just a pity that the Wi-fi in room didn't work consistently during my stay. Courteous staff. Spacious rooms. Will return.

This was my first stay at casterbridge hollow & i received great services specially from Dorothy. The rooms are very specious & clean but special attention is needed on replacements of hotels amenities such as shower caps, i did not how ever appreciate the limited menu that we were given at the restaurant which led to eating the same food...

This was our second stay at Castebridge and we couldn't fault anything. The staff were friendly at the hotel and the rooms were clean and spacious, their tea and coffee facilities in the room are great. Meals at Magnolia are really good and the service was warm and friendly and the waiter managed to 'sell' us 3 courses at dinner... More

No problem with the accommodation if you are looking at an average 4-star establishment. The walls to the rooms are very thin though and you will hear every word, every sound when other guests enter the room. The septic tanks used in the bathrooms do give off a very bad chemical smell as there is no ventilation in the bathroom.... 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
