I stumbled across the CCC during a cross-country trip with my two small dogs. I intentionally made no bookings ahead, and had no firm route. I had spent previous nights in several other small hotels in the Hogs-Back and southern Drakensberg which were nice, but this took the cake. The staff were warm and welcoming from the minute we arrived....

The cottages are a bit outdated, but so secluded and peaceful and did the trick. The view from our cottage was gorgeous. The main house is a bit far to walk...

What a beautiful spot! We spent the last night of a week long celebration of my Mum's 70th at CCC on 12 June 2011 (Mum's actual birthday) and this little oasis exceeded my expectations. The cosy pub, the funky decor, the warm, comfortable rooms, the lovely scenery, the excellent friendly service and the delicious food (including a fantastic chocolate orange...

“The cottages looked great from the outside and would likely afford one more privacy. However, if you are the kind of person who likes to strike up a conversation with fellow guests opt for the main building which has comfy areas to sit, read and socialize if you want. Welcomes small, well-behaved dogs on leash.”

“There are rooms located at the mainhouse which would be much more convenient, but if you're not picky and want more privacy, the cottages are a great value!”
