“GOOD NEW HOTEL”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

The Casterbridge Hollow Boutique Hotel is well located, not far from Krugger Park and can be a good base to visit the park. The hotel is good and new and no claims about it.
However one thing that puts me nervous was the restaurant so slow, but sometimes we have to adapt ourselves to this specialy in Africa

Reviewed 5 August 2010

The Casterbridge Hollow is an awesome launching or finishing point for your trip to Kruger. It is nicely situated in White River about 25 minutes from the Numbie Gate and about 20 minutes from the Nelsprit airport. It is a really beautiful hotel with a lap pool in the middle of the courtyard, beautifully modern appointed rooms and a great breakfast all for a very reasonable price. There is a great little shopping area connected with the hotel where you can get the best souvenirs we found, a spa if you would like a great massage, about 4 really good restaurants and a barn theater that hosts some awesome local entertainment. It is close to White River that has a bunch of additional shopping and a great little fast food chicken restaurant called Nandos.

The staff at the hotel, at the Casterbridge center and Nandos were magnificent. The beds were the most comfortable we slept in during our three weeks in South Africa. You will not be disappointed to make this hotel your beginning or your end to a vacation in Kruger.

Reviewed 28 April 2010

This newly opened hotel really surprised us. The rooms are located around a lovely swimming pool and are very comfortable, spacious and elegant. An excellent breakfast is served outdoors under a lovely pergola. During our stay we dined at the restaurant called Magnolia, its cousine has nothing to envy to the best Italian restaurants! The hotel staff was very kind and friendly. The hotel is situated just outside White River, near the entrance to the Kruger National Park and close to the most important tourist destinations such as Pilgrim Rest, Good's Window, Three Rondavels and so on.
It was very plesant stay at Casterbridge 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
