I had occasion to stay at Cathbert for one night for my father's 75th birthday, with the rest of my family (8 altogether). Suffice it to say that the owners went the extra mile for us, to make the event special for guests of all ages. The setting and drive to the venue is beautiful, and the accommodation is central to several wine farms and at least 2 highly rated restaurants within a very short drive. I would recommend this for those who want to explore the Winelands and Franschhoek valley, but would like a quiet, restful retreat.
Of the rooms we stayed in, they were all beautifully decorated and comfortable, 2 with fireplaces, and the other 2 with exceptional spa-like bathrooms with spectacular views from the bath. The rooms have TV and cable, there's a great pool, and the dinner was very nice. And everybody, from the owners to the wait staff, were consistently friendly and helpful.
