We stayed at Oliver’s for one night as a way point to Kruger. We were enchanted and delighted by the property’s charm and staff. The rooms were gorgeous, each with their own layout that felt like home. The pool was wonderful for a late afternoon cool down for my daughter. But the best was surely our dinner which was nothing short of gourmet. Savory Ostrich and Sea Bream, with a South African Pinotage, grilled prawn and duck apps, with rum raisin flambe crepes and vanilla ice cream. Absolutely delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very kind staff, beautiful garden, nice pool to relax and well located just south of the famous Panoramic route. So a very good stop on your way up to or down from the panoramic route. Should you want to enjoy a game of golf, just walk out the garden straight onto the course. Enjoy

Great location in an old fashioned English style. The rooms are impressive, well equipped and clean, but still with moquette on the floor as typical some years ago. The food is amazing. The housekeeping service is even too fast. I was still having breakfast on the checkout day and when back I found the staff ready to clean with the keys inside the door

When you wake up and find a dignitary of South Africa having stayed overnight, you know it's a no-brainer to stay here. Staff are warm and friendly. Staff are well trained to solve ad hoc requests. We even returned on our way back from safari to have a coffee break. Highly recommend!

I booked a room on the same day of my arrival, but I was pleasantly surprised by the kindness and courtesy of the reception staff. They managed to find me a space on such short notice, treating me like a VIP. During my stay, I was able to reflect and relax, and I enjoyed every moment of it. The food was delicious, and the staff was super friendly, always paying attention to my needs. I am grateful for such a wonderful time. The rooms were exquisite, and the garden was well-landscaped and peaceful. I am hoping to bring my family next time to enjoy the beauty of the place.

The hotel is certainly recommendable thanks to its excellent customer service, adapted facilities, restaurant and functional rooms. The swimming pool is also a best. Well located, it is the place you need to book if you have to go to Kruger.

This is an excellent restaurant and hotel. It is easily accessible in one of the stunning parts of Mpumalanga.

Great hotel in the town of White River. A true gem. It is located on the White River country Club course for you golfers. The club also has tennis and padel ball courts. Hotel is well maintained with attentive staff at every level. The owner Tanya is on property all the time and her loving care of this place shows at every turn. Loved the onsite spa had 2 relaxing massages and lovely meals.
