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....

Our group of six arrived at lunch time with no reservation. We had hiked for a week through the Berg on the top of the escarpment. We needed a break, a shower and a bed! We were checked in with no hassle, at a good price and enjoyed a great night's stay. Good was brilliant and rooms were fantastic. Both... More

Ever since a young kid I had the pleasure of visiting the Cathedral area of the Berg, mostly staying at Cathedral Peak Hotel, sometimes hiking & camping out. Do we ever have fond memories of those times. Then about 20 years ago I moved to Australia. Recently I had the great fortune to stay at Cathedral Peak Hotel again. It... More

We spent 6 activity filled days at Cathedral Peak - we hiked the most beautiful routes, played tennis and badminton, swam in the heated pool, went on a horseback trail and mastered the mini golf circuit. Our three boys thoroughly enjoyed the buffet which ensured no one was ever left hungry. The fresh trout grilled to order was a highlight.... More

This was a classic vacation that even words cannot do justice to. The ambiance was breath taking, and we were welcomed with excellent hospitality. The views from the hotel were like pictures captured in a Fairy Tale. From the time we arrived at this “Magical Destination”, we were kept on our toes with various day adventures, as well as entertainment... More

We had an excellent family holiday for a week at Cathedral Peak. There is loads to do for the whole family and the setting is magnificent. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. An abundance of "old school" buffet style food, could do with a menu update but it was still pretty good. My only advise would be that the... More

Cathedral Peak Hotel is a four star hotel set in a nature reserve- the road ends at the hotel and beyond that one sees only the magnificent Drakensberg mountains, with Cathedral Peak itself in the distance. The rooms were comfortable and the hotel offers panoramic views of the Drakensberg. There are many activities (mostly free for hotel guests) such as... More

We came here for our honeymoon and stayed in the honeymoon suite. We have never stayed in such an amazing hotel room before - ever! The size, amenities and views from the room, complete with a covered patio were out of this world. The Buffet menu was massive and the huge variety easily satisfied every bodies taste buds. We loved... More
