We only stayed for one night as a transition from Kruger to Victoria Falls but had a wonderful stay. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Our family had 2 rooms which were close together that allowed us to get ourselves organized for the final leg of our journey. The property is beautiful. We wish we would have been able...

The hotel is excellent and ideal for distressing and getting away from rat race. With all the surrounding shops and facilities its so perfect. Friendly staff. Thank you Ntokozo for your hospitality! Close enough to all the excitement and yet secluded enough for timeout.

This was just a stop-over that could not be avoided before we went to Kruger National Park - as gates close at 6pm. And so it felt. Room was okay, service was okay. But you honestly don't want to stay here in the middle of nowhere for longer than absolutely necessary! Creepy!

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
