We stayed here in June as part of an 80th birthday celebration, on a self catering option. The cottage is absolutely beautiful - every little detail has been thought of, and the place has been decorated with such love and care. The cottage can easily accommodate 10 adults (en suite rooms), and is serviced on a daily basis. We really... More

You will enjoy the charming and helpful hostess Leila, it's a beautiful place to stay, a really lovely location with lots to do in the immediate area. We recommend it wholeheartedly. The buffet in the Drakensberg Sun hotel (which is within walking distance) is brilliant and you can also get takeaways easily locally.

We spend three days at the Cathkin Cottages where Leila, the owner made us feel at home. The location is fantastic as it is very safe and has proximity to many hiking and activity places in the Central Berg. The lounge in her B&B is so cosy and made our evenings very pleasant, while our children could watch some movies... More

A beautifull place, great breakfast and perfect location. We just loved the bathroom. It had everything we needed. We had dinner in the hotel just 500meter from the B&B. Great views there as well! Tip: The adres is not in the GPS system, so don't forget to bring the GPS Coordinates stated on you booking reverance.

Not just a B&B but a huge covered lounge filled with squashy sofas, a pool and lots of indoor space. It was like having your own house. It is so obvious that the owner is an interior designer. We had a comfortable room and were given a varied and good breakfast each day. It is very peaceful here and it... More

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
