Cathie cottage has a very peaceful atmosphere. Our host, Roger, was very knowledgable about the area, places to visit, eat at etc. The room was clean and serviced every day. The breakfasts were amazing. No TV which was fantastic. Just nature at its best.

The location was perfect - close to the Drakensberg Sun where some of our group were staying. Welcoming flowers in the room and the most gracious host. Great stay with luxurious linen and well appointed with everything needed.

Cathkin Cottage is a lovely little B&B with comfortable accommodation and the most welcoming Owner and Staff. We will most definitely be back again, hopefully in the near future. It is a lovely little place out of the hustle and bustle but still close enough for activities. Lovely place and experience!!

Had the most magnificent week stay at this beautiful gem 💎 in the Drakensberg. Highly recommended for an essential escape from city life. Roger is the perfect host Ester the most amazing cook 👩‍🍳, the breakfasts were to die for, and never the same, variety is the spice of life they say, we then my life was certainly spiced this week 😂. Seriously if you are looking for the perfect get away from the world and silence, solitude and getting back to nature is your thing, then this is the perfect spot for you. Trust me! I did not want to leave. Oh, and the mountain here is just majestic and magnificent, it will mesmerise you with its beauty and many different moods. ... I miss this little piece of paradise already.
