We had a great surprise when we arrived at Kastelein B&B as we didi not imagine a place so beautiful can be found in a such a small settlement as Pongola. The property is astonishing and great attention to details was put in every part of the guesthouse and the surroundings. The owners are very kind and they welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. If I will ever pass through Pongola again, it will be my place of choice. Well done to Rene and her family.

Look no further than Kastelein for a quality B&B in Pongola. It is well situated close to the N2. Accommodation gardens and décor can easily don the best garden and home magazines.

The self catering units have a small kitchenette, lounge area, seating outside, amply space to move around and a comfortable queen size bed to have a good nights rest.

The rooms I have stayed in have bathrooms with showers as well as a Victorian style bath with claw feet.

There is a breakfast option that provides you with a good breakfast before you leave to explore the Pongola and Zululand area.

While I have travelled here for business I have met foreigners using Pongola as a stop over to the Kruger Park and other to the KwaZulu-Natal South coast.

PS there is a splash pool to cool off from the hot weather

Room Tip: All rooms are good

My wife and I were certainly very amazed with this beautiful guest house in Pongola. Well decorated room with ample space, well designed and you had the feeling of being home and not your normal guest house. We will definitely visit Kastelein again.

Just spent the night driving through but I am so happy with my stay. I chose a garden room, which was full of windows & felt like a studio apartment. Beautifully decorated, clawfoot tub, little kitchenette with dishes, microwave, & small frig. It also had a seating area to watch tv & table to eat. The breakfast (additional cost) was worth it because I wouldn't have known where to eat out nearby. Loved my stay!

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
