Beautiful, tranquility in the Drakensberg. ”

If you want to have a fairytale wedding in a Catedral overlooking the majestic Drakensberg, this is the place to seal your Eternal love and life. Or feel like getting away from it all, tired of city life, come hide in the beautiful, majestic Drakensberg. Cathedral Peak Hotel is exactly the place you're looking for. From hiking and mountaneering to trout fishing they have it all. If you haven't experienced their immaculate dining, you haven't been in food heaven. The Cathedral Peak Hotel has a rich history which can not only be experienced in the buildings - you are surrounded by early photos swaying you into the lively history this Hotel hides under its belt. Service is excellent and always with a smile.

Your accounting service is unprofessional as it converts & deducts payments unwanted into U$ even if the entire payment process was done in South African Rand. So, the final payment is higher then the approved SA-Rand amount due to currency exchange rates. Very disappointing!

Perfect little getaway in the mountains”

We decided to go on a little getaway for the weekend and we could not have chosen a better place. Cathedral Peak Hotel is hidden away in the beautiful mountains. The service was excellent, the buffet breakfast, lunch & dinner was absolutely delicious and the scenery was stunning. We were even lucky enough to wake to snow on the mountains. Definitely a go to place if you decide to make your way to the Drakensberg.

Great hotel with some minor opportunities to imporve”

Location - just perfect. Direct access to the hiking routes. I have lived in the main competitor Champagne Castle and both of these hotels are great View from the public areas is amazing. View from the regular rooms are also good (but good to be upgraded to the rooms with the full view) The restaurant is just great - so delicious food you can't expect from the buffet. Local trout from the farm is super! Cleaning of the room can be better - one day stuff just ignored the bathroom - didn't replace/put in order towels, didn't replace shampoos/shower gel

I absolutely loved my stay at Cathedral Peak. Honestly, 5-star quality food, fabulous location. My only advice is regarding the wellness centre/ spa-very mediocre from a decor and aesthetic point of view. Looked like makeshift house turned into a spa. Definitely roomfor improvement. Otherwise, I fully recommend this establishment.
