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.

We stayed at Cathkin Cottage for 4 nights, what a delight! Spotless room and bathroom, friendly service and a very knowledgeable host. The cottage is close to many attractions. We will definitely stay there again, next time maybe with the whole family.
