Excellent hotel, nice rooms, hospitable staff. The breakfast is excellent and the hotel has a voucher system with the gym next door. The little shopping center is always very cute and this a great place for couples.

Casterbridge Hollow Hotel is an excellent hotel which has beautifully appointed rooms with very helpful and pleasant staff.....nothing was too much for them. The restaurant has exceptional, gourmet-style food and very generous proportions. It is amazing to find food of this incredible quality in a town as small as White River. Unfortunately, the service at the restaurant was quite poor,... More

Thank you for the excellent service and friendly service. Food was excellent as was accommodation . The setting adjacent to the center and amenities works really well.

A very convenient location, in that one has easy access to most facilities, from dentist to watching a movie, or a variety of clothing boutiques to browsing for a second hand book, in the adjacent shopping center. Here too one has breakfast served in a lovely garden setting at the restaurant across from the entrance to the hotel. The hotel... More

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

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
