We stayed in the self catering accomodation. The standard of the accomodation was very high and was very clean. The bed was a bit hard but that's just my taste. The view from the chalets is to die for. A great place all round. I was very impressed by the manager who spoke to us personally over dinner. My only... More

Good spacious family room with two double beds which you could separate into 2 rooms. This is a big hotel and is used for conferences and large seminars. Hence big public areas and dining rooms. Awesome views of the mountains surrounding the area. There is little point going to CP unless you go on a guided hike . They are... More

We last stayed here in 2010 during the Soccer World Cup and we loved it so much that we vowed to return. Are we glad that we did! They have revamped many of the amenities and rooms without losing the original character. Our room was lovely with a great view, verandah, and underfloor heating. The bathroom had an impressive shower.... More

I stayed at Cathedral Peak for 3 nights as part of a conference group. The views of the mountains are just spectacular. The hotel itself is good, the service is great, the rooms are spotless and the food is good. A well run hotel.

We have visited Cathedral Peak many times but this is my first review of it. We have also tried many other Berg resorts when Cathedral Peak was full, at least 7 which I won't name - Cathedral will always be our preferred place. Its not just about the comfortable rooms, the wide choice of accommodation available, the superb food -... More

Hadn't been there for over 30 years! Big mistake. Huge changes but an awesome place. Room was lovely and quiet and food plentiful and delicious. Central heating was a tad warm even though it was cold and wet!

I visited Cathedral Peak Hotel in June 2015 for a business conference and was very pleasantly surprised. Conference facilities are too often only capable of being that and while many offer to be able to accommodate you with your family once the work is over, few can do both well - Cathedral Peak Hotel is one of them that can....
