We have visited almost every Drakensberg resort and this was our first visit to Cathedral Peak. From the moment we arrived we could not help being impressed; from the service, the room, the food and the views. One suggestion... Perhaps management could consider a small a-lacarte resturarant as an 'extra'. The buffet dining room is stupendous as is the food... More

This was our first visit to the Drakensberg and we were blown away. The hotel is situated in the most beautiful surroundings (World Heritage Site) and has all of the amenities that one would expect from a resort hotel, although we were more interested in the scenery and walks, both of which are available in abundance. The accommodation is generous,... More

A stunning resort with so much to do whether it is a family holiday or a romantic getaway. The food is amazing - most of my family said it was tge best buffet they have ever been to. The rooms are lovely - we stayed in a suite which was very spacious. The only criticism I have is that the... More

I was here the weekend of the 16th May for my friends daughters wedding. We arrived late Friday afternoon and many of the wedding party sat down for dinner at around 18h30. The waitrons in the dining room were not very good. On the morning of the wedding, the wedding planners, who came recommended by the hotel only arrived at... More

I stayed for a week at Cathedral Peak with a walking group. There were excellent walks every day from the hotel (we had no additional transport). One of our group did walked to the top of Cathedral Peak itself (a 1500m climb) with the hotel's guide, but there are plenty of easier options. Our bedroom and bathroom were large, clean... More

We went for a Mother's Day lunch. What a disaster. No calamari and no one to tell us until the rest of the guests was served. We had to eat from a bar menu in a bar on our laps??! Very disappointing. The hotel is very expensive and we really expected something nicer?!

Set amongst stunning scenery, this extremely well appointed hotel offers so much. The rooms are clean, well equipped and most have delightful views of the Drakensberg mountains. There is a beautiful swimming pool, fabulous walks and hikes of varying standards and the icing on the cake is the excellent dining with a huge range of superb foods available to cater... More

My husband and I recently took advantage of the hotel's Golden Oldies special for 5 nights, full board included and we can highly recommend our stay at this establishment. We stayed in a very comfortable, clean unit with spectacular mountain views. The beds were a little on the hard side for me . As we enjoy walking we went on... More

My wife and I together with our two sons, aged 2 and 5 spent the long weekend at the hotel. There is so much to do and the dining is great. We especially enjoyed the quad bikes offered by Drakensberg Quad Tracks. A bonus was the baby sitter, Mpumi who took extra special care of our sons. I would suggest... More
