A return visit after 4 years allayed our fears. The food is still excellent, the staff are friendly, and the setting remains impressive. A maintenance program is obviously ongoing. We look forward to our next visit.

Many Drakensberg hotels offer scenic splendor and expansive buffet dinners but few few can match Cathedral Peak on both counts. The view is spectacular and the meals vey well prepared. You may never find better "Yorkshire Pudding" anywhere. The activities are great fun and the nine green golf course is manicured, well laid out and offers great views of the... More

I had the pleasure of escorting one of our national treasures, ex South African tennis No 1, Abe Segal to the Drakensberg World Heritage site recently, whilst on an Avis Celebrity Road Trip. Being a Natal girl, I had never been to Cathedral Peak and my curiosity was peeked, thus we ventured off the beaten track in our comfortable 4... More

The quintessential luxury stopover between the coast and Joburg? Cathedral Peak Resort Hotel in Winterton is a haven for the weary soul in need of pampering, luxury, and a whole lot of prettiness. The road to Cathedral Peak – albeit challenging and devoid of tar – serves as a kind of prelude to the symphony that reaches its crescendo as... More

Arrived with a tour group after a 5 hour drive. The welcome orange juice was not available to me as the urn broke down. All I got from the staff was a shoulder shrug. First place I have ever been to in over 30 countries while touring where I have had to locate and label my bag with my room... More

We were given the weekend at Cathedral Peak hotel as a gift and it turned out to be a wonderful one! Our room was beautiful and spacious with a gorgeous view. It was very cold but this wasn't a problem as the room was well heated. We were there only for the weekend so we couldn't experience all the activities... More

My family have stayed at most holiday resorts in the Drakensberg from simple self-catering to four star hotels, and can honestly say that Cathedral Peak Hotel is one of the best holiday resorts in the entire Drakensberg. It offers everything one could wish for when going on holiday, whether it's just the two of you or the whole family. There... More

Yet again - a magic weekend at Cathedral Peak, the views, the splendour. The weather was sublime, fires in the pub, the bonhommie and friendship was brilliant. Didn't see much of the golf course but will next time

Stunning location surrounded by the mountains. Only stayed for three nights but will be back for more, especially if you like walking .... Good selection of dishes for both breakfast and dinner. Good value all round.

After a 5 day trekking in Drakensbergen, this hotel was the perfect resting place to get back to the good life with good food and drinks. We also enjoyed the local walks and even tried out the horse walking trip. The buffet dinner was just too marvellous for words.
