This quaint guesthouse on a small holding is set in a picturesque valley near Cato Ridge with quick and easy access to the area. Personnel friendly and accommodating without fawning over guests. The sound of the N3 1km away can be heard in the morning depending on wind direction but overall delightful with all the amenities one need.

It was our first overnight venture out since the start of Covid. We chose a place that was going to be out of the crowds and big tourists attraction... Cavalo in Drummond, KZN is a beautiful guest house, nestled in the valley of a thousand hills. We stayed in the family room that had a queen bed and a child's bed too ... we had a lovely kitchenette that came with microwave and bar fridge. The accommodation has a swimming pool and braai facilities.

The big draw for us were the horses as my child is mad about horses ... they have 4 horses at the farm and guests can ride on the property or go for an outride.

Stunning property, in a peaceful setting

I was very impressed with the friendly, and hospitable staff. The guesthouse is situated in a very tranquil and peaceful area, which is exactly what we wanted and needed. The room/bathroom was very spacious, and neat. Loved my first horse riding experience, with Freddy. Breakfast was lovely.

I booked 1 night at Cavalo Guest House for a business trip close to my customer and enjoyed a relaxed stay in the country. Friendly staff and the guest house is in a very quiet area. Everything is clean and well kept.

What more could you want in a guesthouse. The staff are extremely friendly, the facilities are well furnished, comfortable beds, great breakfast. Definitely worth a stay if you are in the area. The views of the surrounding hills are spectaular.

Spoke to reception about earlier time of arrival however had to wait for some time outside the gate due to no one answering the call from the entrance bell. We tried to explain this to the manager who finally answered. When we got to the guesthouse we found building rubble,unfinished cemented flooring at the entrance. This wasnt the best welcome.The next day the manager came to the guesthouse,ignored us while we sat at the breakfast table, spoke to the assistant in charge and left without a welcome or apology. I must add that had it not been for the day assistant Goodness and the warm and friendly approach of the riding instructors,we would not have had a pleasant stay.

We stayed at Cavalo over the Comrades Marathon weekend. The Guesthouse is very homely and very well decorated. Hayley and Princess were great and made us feel at home. We will definitely be back next year.
