We stayed at this hotel for three nights in October. When we initially booked, I was concerned about whether we would get value for our money, seeing it was a bit more pricey than what we would ordinarily pay. I can reassure you, it was worth every cent. Cathedral Peak Hotel does indeed provide you with a four star experience.... More

There is no better way to describe Cathedral peak hotel than Breathtaking. The hotel is set apart from all other Drakensberg hotels due to it's proximity, it is secluded from all towns and other resorts (besides Didima). The scenery is by far the best in the Drakensberg. Dinner and Breakfast is served buffet style, the food is fantastic, with a... More

Cathedral Peak is a family run hotel. Over the years it has been modernised, but not to the extent that it has lost its charm. This for me adds to its appeal. If you want a luxurious room, go for the Presidential Suite. It has the most amazing view from its front window and patio, a lounge area, steam shower,... More

This hotel is perched on the slopes of Cathedral peak with magnificent views. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds & all one needs. Breakfast is excellent. Bush trek to the waterfall can be taken which is accompanied by a guide. Well worth the effort.

Cathedral Peak Hotel The Cathedral Peak Hotel is surrounded by mountains and overlooks a river in the valley below which is surrounded by trees and shrubs all along the road to the hotel. The trip from Winterton to the hotel takes about one hour as it meanders through a changing landscape, starting off with fairly level grass and farmlands before... More

The food is fantastic and the setting is beautiful, but I feel that for 4 stars they need to update a few things like: -Proper bedding and linen. 2 single beds together and tons of blankets is not so great anymore. We would have liked a duvet with electric blankets of at least an air-con. A fire place would also... More

This one had it all . No negatives whatsoever . Cannot rate the value for money as it was part of a four hotel package but it was worth every penny that might have been charged . The highlights have to be - The heated swimming pool - Afternoon tea on the terrace - Wonderful views Hot Tip - The... More

Spectacular views, splendid walks and old fashioned all-age family friendly comfort. We very much enjoyed Cathedral Peak which seemed to us to be a gloriously time-warped resort hotel with typical entertainments for both old and young, energetic or less so. Loved the bird life in the garden and glorious sun after rather a cold few days in Cape Town. Staff... More

Food., be it Breakfast Lunch or Dinner is outstanding. Plenty to do from hiking, golfing,swimming.tennis,bowels,cycling,helicopter flips etc. If one looks for... More

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.
