"Once again a great stay. Warm and friendly welcome, awesome room. It was a very hot day, so swam in the pool, which was clean and wonderful. Dinner at the Magnolia is world class! Always a treat. Breakfast is wonderful. Would never stay anywhere else. Staff go the extra mile."
"The reception was very friendly, I felt at home at once:). They were very detailed with showing us around so we could use all the amenities they have to the fullest! Wow... the rooms are very spacious... it felt more like a house! Very spacious indeed! The bathroom as well... that could be a size of a normal bedroom. :) I would definitely want to go there again and recommend anyone planning to visit White River sleep there. The breakfast very was nice too! Fairly more than enough variety! Management is great, they have small chats with clients to confirm you are enjoying your stay."

"We stayed at Casterbridge Hollow for a total of six nights. It was absolutely wonderful in every way. The room was gorgeous including a huge bathroom with soaker tub. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. The pool was divine. However the thing that really stands out was the service. Manager Zandila made us feel like family. The entire staff was so friendly and looked after our every need. They arranged trips to the golf course, made sure we had drinks by the pool, and made dinner reservations. Breakfast was included at the Magnolia Cafe where the service and food are also excellent. We had been travelling in South Africa for 3 weeks before coming to the Casterbridge. It was a very welcome oasis. We had massages in the nearby spa and explored the lovely artisan shops. Thank you for a wonderful experience."
