Four of us were travelling through South Africa recently and came upon this fantastic B and B. Originally we were going to stay for one night but ended up staying for three, and if we hadnt had a time schedule to keep we might have stayed longer! The rooms were spacious and unbelievably beautiful, decorated throughout in whites, creams and greys, and all equipped to the highest standard. Rene and Dani, our hosts, plus their charming son made us extremely welcome and bent over backwards to make our stay as memorable as possible. We ate 'in house' on one evening and enjoyed a great dinner. The property is set in a beautifully manicured garden with a small and attractive swimming pool. This brand new place deserves all possible accolades.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- KASTELEIN is a charming little guesthouse for the more discerning traveller. It is situated in a quiet side street in Pongola, directly off the N2 Highway between the Northern Provinces and the coastal areas of KwaZulu-Natal or Mozambique. Our guests find it a perfect midway stopover. The distinguished and brand new colonial style building is set in a unique landmark garden, a sought-after venue for photo shoots of special occasions. There are five bedrooms, sleeping twelve guests at maximum capacity, which means it is never crowded, with personal attention to every guest by hosts Rene, Danie and Chris. Four rooms are in the new building and the de-lux room is adjacent to the main house, with its own private entrance and court yard. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, the rooms are elegantly furnished, the garden is picture perfect and the cuisine is unpretentious but hearty and plentiful. There is a small pool and safe off street parking. The premises are completely protected by an effective security system. Much care was taken to clad the rooms luxuriously, yet with no unnecessary fuss or frills. We take pride in our immaculate white linen and soft sterilised towels. There is a queen size bed in every room with an extra single bed in one of the rooms and an extra double bed in another. Each room has a full bathroom, kitchenette for basic self-catering, air conditioning, TV, sitting area and a garden view. All amenities are provided, as well as a pretty basket containing a continental breakfast to enjoy in the privacy of the guests' own room or patio. The breakfast room is inside the main house, should a guest prefer a traditional cooked breakfast or dinner by prior arrangement. Free Wi-Fi is available in the de-lux room adjacent to the main house, as well as in the public areas. Kastelein offers value for money. We are one of a kind. ... more less
