We first stayed in 1985, when my wife was expecting our first child. Four children later, we came back about 15 years ago, and revisited this year with a party organised by the UK Ramblers. The scenery is simply stunning, and the hotel has fantastic hiking. South Africa is currently stunningly good value for UK travellers. We thought the food...

Stayed here for a weekend and the drive there was beautiful and the views incredible. The booking in procedure was a little slow as the reception area only allows two people to help the guests. The rooms are spacious however very outdated and could do with an entire revamp. The bed was terrible and the middle sagging on the one...

The Cathedral Peak Hotel was a wonderful find. This was our first visit, to one of those old, established hotels that we had always known of. Being tucked away in the mountains, it is not that accessible so it’s very much a destination hotel and you should stay a few days to really get the most out of it. We...

The perfect place for a family holiday. The Cathedral has everything you need to supersize your holiday. The rooms are big enough, clean; you can go on hikes, the long and short; you can do quad biking, helicopter rides and so much more. Even though we are a family of vegetarians, there is always so much to eat. This place...

Cathedral Peak Hotel is absolutely beautiful in all respects - the scenery, the food, the staff, the accommodation. I would recommend it to anyone who wants either a totally relaxing break or an energetic holiday (there are lots of activities available). Really worth a visit.
