We booked a 3 bedroom self catering houses/villas for the Easter long weekend, and what a fantastic getaway indeed! Nestled in the majestic mountains of the rural Eastern Cape, a peaceful retreat awaits you, with fresh mountain air and time for deep introspection. The house is spacious, well appointed with a fireplace to keep you warm and vistas to remember.... More

On arrival, we were heartily welcomed by I think, the Manager for the golf. Car was packed, and since we couldn't fit in charcoal, we bought wood and charcoal at Katberg Estate in the little shop. As we were wondering who was going to sit with the wood on their lap, a golf cart arrived with an employee, who saw... More

We have been going to Katberg for Sunday lunch for many years and it has always been a good experience. Yesterday was terrible! Firstly we were told there would be a normal buffet lunch only to find it was not the case. We ordered of the al a carte menu. The food was cold and not very appetising. We wanted... More

This eco estate is situated in the Katberg Mountains close to Seymour in the Eastern Cape. We stayed in a 2-bedroom self catering chalet on the golf course which is beautifully furnished and well equipped. There is also a hotel on the estate. The golf course is also in a very good condition with greens that are a thick grass... More

Once we arrived on Sunday afternoon , they had our booking but did not seem to know which cottage was ready. after finding out... More

We were there for a Trail Run on the Saturday and a bit of golf on the Sunday. The trail run was most enjoyable, taking us to over 1000m above sea level, through the indigenous forests on the mountain. It was winter, and the rain and mist came in, but it did not detract from the awesome experience of running... More

The hotel is slightly off the main road on a dirt road, which we had to drive slowly. From arrival the service was amazing, the rooms were basic but had everything we needed and the location made us feel really removed from city living. We walked around the gardens which were beautiful and had lovely little activities for children throughout.... More

We visited Katberg Hotel in 2010/2011 and had a wonderful time there. Yes, the hotel and the rooms is old, and yes, it can do with a bit of a make-over (carpets, bathrooms etc.), but nevertheless, the place was clean and the service excellent! As far as value for money - you won't get better! The price per night includes... More

We enjoyed a night at this secluded spot recently and our time was enjoyed by all. It is in a secluded location and is perfect for those looking to 'get away'. The staff was friendly, helpful and polite. The management is apparently somewhat new and were also very accommodating folks looking to really do good things with this establishment. Although...

I spent a couple of nights with family in the mountains at Katberg. Scenery is amazing so is the birding. Didn't get around to doing much birding, but what I saw in between the relaxing and playing golf, bring the binoculars. We stayed in a self catering unit. Very spacious and clean and well equipped. The units are situated on... More
