This our second visit, the last was for one night only and we were sorry that we couldn't stay for a second night. This visit was for two nights. The personal service and friendliness that the owners showed us was incredible. All the meals were of a very high standard and beautifully served. The accommodation is old fashioned but everything...

What's not to love? We stayed in the cottage and were absolutely spoiled for the duration of the weekend. Very popular destination and it is easy to see why. Beautifully tended gardens, great accommodation with views, lots of bird life, gorgeous breakfast on the terrace, full DSTV, free wi-fi and I could go on. And what B&B is happy to... More

We did a South African Road trip last year. This was our first stop and we will be back. This is a Guest House from my dreams. The gardens were incredible, the food was beautifully served, the room was massive and utterly luxurious, and the hosts were very charming and welcoming.

Cavers has been in the Ross family for generations, since the founding ancestor came to South Africa with Dr David Livingstone. Old world charm and hospitality still lives there. It was certainly a treat to have visited Cavers - we look forward to our next visit.
