Excellent place a home away from home, clean apartment, clean garden and excellent breakfast. The view and the areas of entertainment surrounding this Cottage are excellent. you refresh yourself with hiking trails in the mountain, bird watching and fresh air.

Friendly staff, very peaceful. Concerns? - Room privacy: one could easily see into the bathroom when passing by to the other rooms - Toilet paper:...

We have just returned. While the owner and staff were friendly and efficient, the breakfasts delicious, our room was a huge disappointment. It was small, dark, no Tv, could not see out. The tiles around the bath broken and the hand shower in the bath most unsatisfactory. We will probably not stay there again.

Dear Lynne I am so sorry you feel this way, and as you said your husband is nearly 90 and needs extremely bright lighting to see. We pride ourselves in our rooms, the decor, standard of linen and finishes. I certainly as an interior designer have ensured that each room is bespoke. As for the size, we are situated in...

We spend three nights at Cathkin B&B and really enjoyed ourselves. Although we were only B&B we were also able to have full use of the kitchen for our other meals which was really helpful. Our host was very attentive and Knowledgeable about the area. We would highly recommend it and the location is fantastic .

Great B&B in a wonderful part of the Drakensburg. The breakfast and service was excellent with the communal living areas being especially attractive and great place to relax in. The bedroom, although very comfortable, was less attractive and preventing me awarding a full 5 star rating to the experience.
