WHITE RIVER’S CONTEMPORARY 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. Its 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.
Casterbridge Hollow’s state-of-the art conference centre is equipped with all modern amenities to ensure a successful meeting, product launch or company conference.
Guests are spoilt for choice with the scrumptious breakfasts on offer at Magnolia Café. Upstairs at Magnolia Restaurant zesty cocktails and the lunch and dinner menu promises a unique dining experience! Magnolia’s romantic ambiance lends itself to being a perfect wedding venue, and – with the hotel only steps away – the bride and groom can slip effortlessly from wedding into honeymoon.
