Had a wedding here and it was just beautiful. Hotel is perfectly located for some awesome hikes through the Drakensberg (from 3,6 km to overnight trails). The rooms are great and the food as well. Perfect for romantic or activity weekends.

Spent the weekend of 20-22 Feb '15 with friends. Was totally blown away by the hospitality of the hotel. The views are breathtaking...really awesome. The staff are very courteous and wiling to help. One thing that I observed and liked: it seemed that there are more female employees than males.

Cathedral Peak in the Drackensberg Mountains, a temperate rain forest is like the Costa Rican Monteverde Rain Forest and the Isle of Skye rolled into one... The green is so saturated, everyone will think you Photoshopped your pictures. The hiking is beautiful including an interesting tour to ancient Bushman/ San cave drawing of eland hunts. And the eland are still... More

The drive from Winterton to Cathedral Peak hotel is an interesting start to the visit!......although predominantly a well surfaced road, it is full of twists, turns, steep hills etc. - and as previous reviewers have stated, NOT a good drive to make at night. By day, the journey is interesting, passing through many rural villages with the Drackensberg mountains as... More

Terrible staff service. We checked in at 7pm & went to dinner. We needed matches to light our insect repellant candle in our room. None of the staff wanted to help us. They all said they do not have matches yet the entire restaurant was lit with candles on the tables. All the staff suggested we go to the kiosk... More

The location of this hotel in the midst of the most stunning mountain scenery is awe inspiring.There is a good programme of activities including a variety of guided walks suitable for all abilities. Everything is really well signposted so after a couple of walks with a guide it is pretty straightforward to go out and explore on your own. Birdlife... More

It helps of course that this hotel is set in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. But it is also very well run with excellent food and comfortable rooms. The lounges etc are very comfortable. One thing I was very impressed with was the concern for client safety. The Drakensburg are tough mountains though they look... More
