Heerlik, maar kort vir seker 'n genarator wanneer daar loadshedding is, dit was vreeslik warm toe die krag afgegaan het.

'n Pragtige, keurige gastehuis.

Groot dankie vir Saterdagaand, 31 Nov. 2019 se groot bederf in jul keurige gastehuis (Kastelein). Mal oor die detail. Jy het voorwaar aan alles gedink. 10 uit 10. Ek sal jul hoogs aanbeveel.

Beautiful, neat and clean.

The rooms are beautiful and clean. Unfortunately not very soundproof. Can hear the movements and people talking in the other rooms. Would've like to have breakfast included in the price.

Pragtig, netjies en skoon.

Die kamers is baie mooi en mooi skoon. Ongelukkig nie baie klankdig nie. Kan bewegings en gesels van ander kamers hoor. Sou graag ontbyt by die prys ingesluit wou hê.

Baie goeie en netjiese fasiliteite, goeie waarde vir geld.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang. Ons was a groep van 3 mense wat een kamer bespreek het. Die eienaars het ons 'n ekstra kamer teen geen ekstra kostes aangebied. Hulle het vir ons geriewe aangebied om te braai. Alles was baie netjies en professioneel, met aandag aan die kleinste detail. My eerste keuse vir verblyf in Pongola en omstreke.

The guest house is in a quiet, safe area. The owner was friendly and very accommodating. The room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated and the gardens were well maintained. It is a great location for a one night stop over to break a long journey. Highly recommended.

Baie aangename verblyf.

Baie lekker gebly. Baie skoon en netjies en goed toegerus. Enigste negatief was die matras wat nie baie lekker geslaap het nie. Gelukkig was daar 2 enkelbeddens in die kamer en ons het op die enkelbedjies geslaap. Sal weer by Kastelein tuisgaan.

5 ster-gehalte uit die boonste rakke!

Kastelein laat mens voel of jy in 'n storieboek instap. Die verblyf is ongelooflike waarde vir geld en die aandag aan klein detail sorg vir 'n verrassing om elke hoek! Ek sal met graagte Kastelein aanbeveel vir enige iemand, dit was 'n welkome oase op ons reis. Ons sal voorwaar spesiaal weer Pongola toe gaan om by Kastelein te kan oorbly.

Ons is elke dag bederf met heerlike vars beskuit, asook heerlike vars moerkoffie vir die plunger. As jy gewone koffie of tee verkies, dit is ook daar.

Rene en haar span het baie moeite gedoen met alles! Die kamers is baie skoon en mooi, vars blomme in die kamers, skoon handdoeke en beddegoed, gemaklike beddens, aircons wat werk! Die swembad was skoon sodat ons lekker kon afkoel. Die parkering was veilig. Alles was net prentjiemooi en ek sal dit beslis aanbeveel! Elke sent werd! Ons het baie lekker gebly!

Ons het 23:00 daar aangekom en weer 05:00 gery maar het dit baie geniet om daar oor te slaap. Die kamers is ontsettend netjies en mooi, en is ook baie goed toegerus. Die mense van Kastelein het baie moeite gedoen om ons so laat te ontvang en om aan al ons versoeke te voldoen. Wens ons kon langer daar bly. Sal verseker weer daar bly in die nabye toekoms.

Unexpected gem in Pongola.

I have two four star guest houses in Sandton, Johannesburg, and am often critical when staying over at other places. However, in this case, I could not fault Kastelein on anything! The rooms were beautifully decorated, well planned, spotless, fabulously appointed and attention to detail was obvious. I was astounded that Kastelein was in such a little "dorpie". Their service, quality and standards would appease even the most discernible traveler. Well done to the team there! We were impressed and will never stay anywhere else when driving to Mozambique and Sodwana.

It's the most beautiful, clean and tastefully furnished guesthouse that I would recommend to anyone.

What a pleasant surprise when we arrived at Kastelein. Friendly reception, organized, focused on details, clean and neat, to not even speak of the beautiful rooms. Beautiful interior with the grey and white, a classical style combined with the modern elements (excellent choice!). Lovely, cool rooms (Pongola was 40 degrees that day and the rooms were nice and cold) - everything you need. The most beautiful garden, very tastefully furnished and super neat! We also had the most delicious breakfast the next morning, big portions. If I ever go to Pongola again, I won't stay at any other place except Kastelein. I left the Bluetooth Speaker that I got for Christmas there and Kastelein kept it safe for me until I could collect it on the way back. Thank you for the amazing service.

Dit is die mooiste, skoonste, netjieste en mees smaakvol gemeubileerde gastehuis wat ek aan enige iemand sal aanbeveel.

Wat 'n aangename verrassing toe ons by Kastelein aankom. Vriendelike ontvangs, georganiseerd, detail gefokus, skoon en netjies, om nie van die pragtige kamers te praat nie. Pragtige interior met die grys en wit wat 'n klassieke styl met die hede kombineer (uitstekende keuse!) Heerlike koel kamers (Pongola was 40 grade die dag en die kamers heerlik koel) - alles wat jy nodig het. Die mooiste tuin, baie keurig uitgelê en hiper netjies! Ons het ook die lekkerste ontbyt genuttig die volgende oggend, groot porsies. As ek ooit weer Pongola toe gaan sal ek by geen ander plek oorbly as Kastelein nie. Ek het toe my nuwe Bluetooth Speaker daar vergeet wat ek vir Kersfees gekry het. Kastelein het dit vir my in veilige bewaring gehou tot ek dit kon afhaal op pad terug. Baie dankie vir uitstekende diens.

Onverbeterlike eenhede, vriendelike diens, heerlike ontbyt. Sien julle beslis weer!

Ek is geen voorstander van B&B nie, maar ek was aangenaam verras. Die eenhede was onberispelik skoon. Goed toegerus met daai ekstras om jou spesiaal te laat voel. Ontbyt was fenomenaal. Ek woon ongeveer 15 dae per maand in 'n 5 ster-hotel in Durban waar ek 'n Diamant-lid is. Ek dink hulle kan gaan kers opsteek. Baie moeite was gedoen om die ontbyt vir my laatlam seun van 4 jaar oud aantreklik te maak. Baie dankie julle. Julle sien my beslis weer.
