          Fantastic hotel with outstanding service ”
          Having spent one night here we just had to come back for a second night. The hotel situated next to the river and has a beautiful covered terrace with bar and restaurant area where you can watch elephants by day playing in the river then hippos hollowing by night. It’s truly magical. The staff, Grace and Pinky will look after you in the restaurant with service that is outstanding, if you choose to eat on the bridge over the river then Jabu, Daisy and Nozipho will treat you to an evening that you’ll never forget. The rooms are clean and spacious with large beds, river fronted cottages have a terrace over looking the river. Show less

          the lodge is located at a pleasent river, with very friendly and helpful staff. I booked a chalet and a room - and got an upgrade with 2 chalets nebst each other- it was fantastic! also we got the great Shangan- show with dinner- brei in the evening. It is located in Hazyview - and it is near to all touristic activities! to elephant whispers it is walking distance. we had a short but great time there!

          Really nice rooms, Nice food, Michelle is great for booking activities
          Hippo Hollow is a lovely country estate, with largely very helpful staff and a decent menu at the restaurant. Unfortunately our room (a garden chalet) didn't have air conditioning and only had a ceiling fan which made for some uncomfortably warm nights sleep. One or two members of staff at reception could have been more accessible to follow up questions, or at least a bit less "snappy" with responses which was a little off-putting at times. The pool also had a lot of fallen leaves and dead insects in it, and seemed generally unclean, which was somewhat of a letdown. Overall though I'd definitely recommend Hippo Hollow, as Michelle, the client service officer who handled booking our activities was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge of what there was to do and was very helpful overall. The hotel itself didn't have any major flaws either, the above are minor quibbles.

          Seeing the hippo at breafast! Yes they are really there at the bottom of the garden.
          The air condition did not work very well if at all. The tap flew of the basin when I turned on the cold tap! No remote for the TV
          All in all it was fine. Only there one night so little quirky things were not a problem. Had I stayed longer then it would have been a different matter. Food was good and the staff very attentive.

          Secluded spot, but only 5 mins from outside restaurants & large modern shopping mall. Lovely grounds. nice restaurant & terrace towards river
          No air con in chalets, just a ceiling fan - but the newer bedrooms in the block had air con
          Great location backing onto the river. we actually missed a hippo on the lawn - just as we were checking in. Also, left early one morning for Kruger National Park, minutes later 2 hippos came out of the river & had a playful fight on the lawns immediately in front of other guests having breakfast. Just our bad luck. Chalets spacious & in well laid out grounds. Pool area quiet & relaxing. Restaurant very good & reasonably priced. Staff friendly & helpful.

          Das Hotel ist schön gelegen, wenn man Glück hat sieht man beim Frühstück Hippos auf dem Rasen vor dem Restaurant. Die Zimmer sind geräumig aber recht einfach eingerichtet. Dasd TV hat keine ausländischen Sender. Das WiFi geht nur sporadisch. Die Auswahl im Restaurant ist relativ bescheiden. Das Buffet-Frühstück ist gut. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt etwas teuer aber noch ordentliches Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
