Exceptional venue in the beautiful Drakensberg. Spacious and spotless rooms, friendly and helpful staff, every meal a treat. Daily activities are arranged. Many hiking trails to enjoy the lovely surrounds. Stayed here on a business trip and returning soon to enjoy some leisure time.

Breakfasts range from eggs and meat to fruit and yoghurt and nuts to pastries. Dinners range from seafood to stir-fry's to roasts, salads and a huge selection of desserts -- we... More

Cathedral Peak is set in a beautiful and tranquil environment. We booked this as a family and outdoorsy hotel, but were met with way too much stiffness. For your stay, you are allocated a table for all meals and it is not expected that you challenge this. No shorts for dinner. No children in the dining room after 20.00. And... More

We have tried to contact the hotel directly three times, through the feedback form which we left at reception, and twice by email. Why ask people for their opinion and then ignore them? The hotel is in a fabulous location, the staff are on the whole friendly and helpful, and the food is good. Nevertheless, our Christmas was all but... More

Wow, well it takes some travelling to get to this area but once you are there the views are absolutely breathtaking. I have never seen a place quite like the Drakensberg area and Cahterdra Peak Hotel definiately had the best position for exploring it. A well run hotel with loads of activities and obviously popular with families. We got a... More

We knew nothing about the Drakensberg area when we made the booking for the Cathedral Peak Hotel but were very positively surprised when we arrived. Out two nights in the hotel were very good. The rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast and dinner was included in our stay and the food was always fresh and very good. The lunch buffé... More

This must be our fourth stay at this amazing place. The beauty of it for us is that it is totally away from the 'hustle and bustle' of city life and is really a country retreat. The staff are gems, they are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is excellent and we found enough... More

We stayed for a few days over NYE and the first thing you can't miss is the amazing views. The check-in was easy enough and fairly straightforward. Our room, whilst a bit dated is functional and clean. There are lots of activities to do during the day and horse riding and the guided walks (free) are great fun. There is... More

We arrived in the dark and pouring rain after a dramatic and long drive. The welcome was prosaic but efficent and the porter had very kindly waited to show us the way in the rain across to our chalet which was nicely furnished. Then waitress in the restaurant showed us to a table saying rather sternly that it was 'ours... More
