We stayed here for two nights in mid July 2014. Our accommodation was truly outstanding (the executive honeymoon suite) which afforded privacy, luxury and breathtakingly beautiful mountain views, especially first thing in the morning! We took full advantage of the organised mountain walks which cater for all ages and abilities. The only disappointment was the dining experience. Although the food... More

The setting is spectacular - in the midst of the most magnificent mountain range. The accommodation is spacious, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. We have never stayed in such a well laid out and spacious family / interleading room situation in all our travels. The hotel amenities are well kept and accessible - we loved the tennis, lawn bowls, puttputt... More

My family of 4 enjoyed a week long break at Cathedral Peak Hotel. What a great family holiday. The kids loved the mini golf and quad bike activities, and their highlight was the walk to the closest waterfall to the hotel. The views are great, and we were lucky enough to have snow on the highest peaks. The food at... More

This hotel is located in the spectacular mountain bowl. This alone makes it worth the stay. THe activities for hikers, cyclists, climbers are many and varied. However, bring your own equipment. The gear for hire is expensive and in a shocking state of disrepair. The beauty of the hotel is marred by signs of decay and declining maintenance and the... More

Everything about this hotel is enchanting. Exciting walks start from the hotel as do the mountain bike trails. There's so much to see and do here even with this being our fourth visit. You won't find better food anywhere else in the Burg but here. We stayed in a superior room and it definitely didn't disappoint. A big thanks to... More
