All meals as well as high tea are included.The buffet (breakfast and dinner) was the best I tried for a very long time. may be ever ....... More

A huge disappointment. Though the hotel is well positioned, the staff are woefully inadequate. Have they ever had any training? Arriving in a torrential downpour, I was told to park across the road from reception (for some reason you are forbidden from parking next to reception) and when I asked for an umbrella, I was told that they were available...

First time at Cathedral Peak and I can only but recommend them. Rooms are well specified and very comfortable. Food was tops and the service was off the shelf right from check in to departure. I'll definitely be back!

Stayed a couple of nights as part of Natal Tour. Delightful hotel in stunning location. Room was excellent - large size with high quality fittings, including bathroom. Service very friendly & helpful. Meals were 1st class, with good range of varied foods, plus top quality. Thoroughly enjoyable stay - would do so again & happy to recommend.

My husband and I visited over Easter 2015. The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed horse riding, quad-biking, mini golf and walking. The hotel was very busy over the break and so it wasn't as romantic as we had thought. The pool was very crowded. The food was nice - buffet for meals - but we were definitely looking forward...

Very nice hotel, perfect location. Good restaurant and nice rooms. Staff could be more friendly and helpful. Reception wasn't helpful at all: golfcourse, helicopter flight: here is the number, find out yourself! That should be better. Walking trails somewhat difficult to find and follow, should be better.

We visited Cathedral Peak Hotel a few years ago and loved it. This time we were disappointed. The views are simply out of this world and to sit in the bar before dinner and watch the thunderstorms rolling over the berg is something special. We cycled Mike's Pass which was great - if a bit of a slog. If you're... More

Stayed here for two nights with family who had been before. Beautiful hotel, walks and scenery are stunning! Really nice family feel too with plenty of activities and morning and afternoon tea served every day. Dinner though was spectacular! I could never eat enough as the choice was overwhelming -- and all delicious!
