We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our very first experience in the Drakensberg. Even after looking at all the hotels in the area, my fiance and I concluded that we chose the BEST accommodation.The most divine breakfast every morning and our room was beautiful & always clean. Leila, thanks for giving us one of... More

The room I stayed in had a small panel heater that didn't do anything to keep the room warm. There was someone's old underwear in the cupboard, yet no extra blankets. The owner chastised us for not washing our own dishes which we assumed was the b&bs responsibility (who wants to be washing dishes when on holiday?). She also told... More

We enjoyed a delightful weekend in this well- run, well - appointed cottage. Breakfasts on the terrace were excellent, and the setting is magnificent. We particularly enjoyed the fact that we could walk to the restaurants and pub at the Drakensberg Sun, and from there continue walking into the Berg. Leila and Roy were most welcoming and tolerant of the... More

I was so impressed by the hospitality at Cathkin Cottage. We called our host (Leila) on the morning drive down from Joburg and she agreed to have our room ready when we arrived even though it was 3 hours before normal check-in. She also allowed us a late check-out so we could shower after zip-lining the morning of our departure.... More

So we naturally had a wonderful time here at this little bed and breakfast around the corner from the drak sun. As an ex pat it pleases me to come home to me what is truly home, and that is an African and white lady running a very homely establishment. Laughs, love and humour and a very tasty brekkie all...

We went to Cathkin Cottage in the Champagne valley for an overnight stay to enjoy activities and nature in Drakensberg. I am very happy to say that this place has been the perfect one so far and is on the top of my list of 'Places to stay' in South Africa. Leila's perfection in making this place a perfect get-away...

If ever you need to get away from the busy hikers and bikers around Drakensberg then Cathkin will be the right place. Leila is the perfect host, the B&B is simple but full of love for details and wellbeing. Away from mainstream it offers a cosy and quiet environment to enjoy the calm.

Spent three nights at the beautiful Cathkin Cottage over the Christmas period. Layla is a fantastic host and takes time to spend with her guests to offer advice on what to do in the area, where to go, where to eat etc. Breakfasts were superb and the rooms were off a high standard also. The only negative I could add... More

Wonderfully attentive hosts, amazing breakfast choices, great views and cosy house. Great location for exploring the mountain area and some great walks on your doorstep. Try and stay at the front of the B&B for the best views. Some restaurants in area to choose from.

My mom (84) and I spent two wonderful nights at the beautiful Cathkin Cottage. We were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble - More than a "home-from-home" experience! Thank you to our hosts - we would have loved to have stayed for longer and will definately be back! Edie + Lynne
