I had the pleasure to host a conference for 110 people at this venue. The service received prior to the conference was exceptional (very efficient and professional). The actual conference ran smoothly with fantastic service all around. The food was outstanding and the accommodation very comfortable. Thanks to this and the relaxing atmosphere, I had 110 very happy delegates

Cathedral Peak Hotel is AMAZING as always. Neat, well equiped rooms. LOTS to do. DELICIOUS food to eat. Friendly Staff. Easy drive to the hotel, virtually NO potholes (thats a biggie) Still THE BEST Hotel in the Drakensberg ...and that comes from someone who has been in the travel industry for more than a decade.

The grounds are beautiful, the setting out of this world looking at those mountains that change every time you look at them is just amazing. The hotel is very well run, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the meals absolutely fantastic....could not wish for... More

Today, 2 months ago, my husband and I got married at Cathedral Peak. The venue has always held a special place in my heart - my parents had their honeymoon there 43 years ago too. We invited our guests long in advance so everyone could make a holiday of it and enjoy the plenty of activities on offer at Cathedral... More

The hotel is indeed located in a nice location, surrounded by very spectacular peaks. The garden is beautiful, with great vegetation and flowers. There are also a number of activities, most of them against fees (including... More
