The White House Lodge was a great place to get away and relax. The hosts were very pleasant and accommodating, the room was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the rural setting was peaceful with a great view of the countryside. I hope to come back!

We stayed here twice - on our way to and from Kruger. It was a fine stay. I did not realize the hotel was so far from town. Once you get there it is not within walking distance to anything. We ate at the restaurant once. The food was ok but not good enough to eat there on our second stay. Overall the stay was unremarkable. If you need a place to sleep before heading into the park, this is fine.
We spent a 3-day New Years vacation visiting Kruger Park and the panorama trail west of the park. Our stay in White River at the Casterbridge Hollow was great. Staff was helpful and gracious. Rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. We took advantage of the pool, the adjacent restaurant & winery and were happily surprised to find local art displayed throughout the "Lifestyle Living Centre" next door.
This hotel is a jewel! The setting is straight from a fairy tale. Beautiful mountains and trees makes the place quite tranquil. We even saw a double rainbow! The staff was super attentive and provided everything we asked for, from electrical adapter's to arrangement of a tour of Kruger National Park. All staff were helpful, friendly and had a "can do" attitude. When I inquired about a car wash, instead of directing me to town, they arranged for an off duty staff member to wash my car! How is that for service! the only drawback was the non-availability of in-room internet access. Based on the responsiveness of the management, I would not be surprised to see them add that by the next time we visit. Outstanding stay!

The Lodge is just ok, nothing to write home about. The breakfast is acceptable, with a bit of variety. On our first morning there, we were told breakfast will be served at 06:30, but by 07:00, they were still mopping the floor. Now having to drive all the way early morning to Kruger National Park, with roadworks all the way, that was not how things should be done. The room we were given, had a old everything, beds, sink, bath, but for the price you pay, I guess it's worth it.
