I have been staying at Casterbridge Hollow for about a year and a half whilst working in the area. The Hotel is situated in a "mini-village" which has a gym, cinema, restaurants and shops making it great especially if travelling alone.
The rooms are clean and well kept and the staff always happy to help with any needs. The only challenge is the noise - the walls are very thin between rooms and so you can hear your neighbours TV and conversations. I have started bringing ear-plugs which have remedied this problem.
I prefer to stay in rooms 26 - 28 purely because they are in the middle of the hotel and I stay and travel alone.
Hoping they add an extra lock in the rooms for safety but otherwise I love staying at this hotel.

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
