After being on safari, I had booked a group of 9 of us to have a night of relaxation and spa treatments at Casterbridge Hollow. As we pulled into the driveway I was initially put off by the way it felt like we were driving into a small shopping mall! But the moment we drove to the reception area where...

We only stayed one night at Casterbridge Hollow on route elsewhere but it was a great choice. The room was neat, clean and rather large. The bed was super comfortable. It had all the amenities, including free wifi. We were a few steps away from the pool. The location of the hotel is great - easy access to the main...

The rooms at Casterbridge Hollow are nice, but nothing special. No bath, no CNN. No room service. Rose leaves on the bed - for a corporate visitor? No restaurant in the hotel - this is served at a restaurant across the road, Magnolia. The Nespresso machine in the foyer is a nice touch, but at more than R3000 pet room...

Staff are great, facilities perfect. A great stay for 18 days. Nothing was ever too much for the staff. Always courteous, friendly and greet by name. Made a tedious trip that much easier. Only criticism would be the poor WiFi and cell signal strength, possibly out of their control. Recommended

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
