#19 of 50 B&Bs / Inns in White River
At Rustic Butler we pride ourselves on our service. Our guests can relax in our FOUR-STAR facilities. Once we have spoiled our guests, they return for more. Our Bed & Breakfast is perfectly situated in the heart of White River. Rustic Butler is within easy reach of the Kruger Park, the Blyde River Canyon and the warm waters of Maputo, yet at the same time is very close to the lively city of Nelspruit. The Riverside Mall with its shops, restaurants and movies are 15 km away and Caster Bridge with its art, cinema and theatre is a mere six minutes. For a bit of adrenaline, one can take a scenic drive to Graskop and do the Big Swing in the Gorge or drive to Sudwala Caves and explore the insides of the mountain and afterwards go back in time in the Dinosaur Park. Kaapsehoop is known for its wild hoses and has the reputation of snow in winter!

What a homely and beautiful guest house stunning garden and the nicest owners you will meet. Annelize was the best host friendly concerned and so helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. It was our anniversary and Annelize arranged flowers champagne and candles and chocolates was a treat. The icing on the cake was the cutest friendliest dogs. We will definately be back thank you it was great. The bed was so comfy and everything was clean and fresh. Regards Hennie and Thora

As a hotel owner myself I can highly recommend the Rustic Butler. My family spent three nights there this last weekend and found this B and B to be exceptional and home from home. The attention to detail and providing more than most BnB's puts it above the rest. Thank you to the owners and staff.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Rustic Butler. We were very well looked after. We stayed there for 10 days and our room was always neat and well kept. The room is spacious with all the necessary facilities. We can recommend the breakfast. An excellent resort for a long stay.

First impressions of the guest house are good. The facility boosts only three rooms with wooden decks overlooking a lush green garden filled with birds. It is therefore quiet and has a great setting. However, the room itself was basic and small. The most important is that it lacked an air conditioner which is essential for the Lowveld humid heat. The roof fan was noisy. Amenities were generally good but my towel had a hole in it. The room also lacked a safe. Although a very narrow shelf is provided, the room does not allow anywhere for someone to sit and work on a computer or to write. I had to revert to sitting outside on the patio to be able to work on a computer. The bar fridge was a bonus and was well-stocked. The hospitality of the hosts definitely receives a five star. They were in touch with guests' needs, were always willing to assist or just to have a nice friendly chat. Even the 3 dachshunds added to the homely friendly ambience. Good for one night but perhaps lacks some facilities one would expect from a 4 star establishment. Keep up the good work.
