Cathkin Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place to stay. Leila is a great host, she and her staff makes you a nice breakfast in the morning. A shame we spend only 1 night in here. Hope one day I can come back.

Location: Conveniently located next to Drakensberg Sun, 10kms from Monk's Cowl, and not far from Winterton. Experience: Drakensberg Sun and Monk's Cowl Nature reserve have wonderful hikes. Leila, the owner, is very friendly and provided us with a map, and information about the area. If you are now sure where to start, Leila will give you advice on a few...

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.

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.
