We had the privilege to have our wedding at the hotel. It was the best experience. Most helpfull friendly staff, gourmet buffets, gorgeous views and all around the best hotel in the Drakensberg. I would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing, 5 star experience!!

It was my first visit to the Drakensburg and to Cathedral Peak. The scenery and landscape is out of this world beautiful. I want to review the hotel it self. Upon getting to our rooms, the rooms are super outdated, its a glorified Secunda hotel. The thought of leaving a chocolate and a story every night on our beds is...

Go to Cathedral Peak for a peaceful and lovely experience. The views and serenity are second to none. Guided hikes, horseback riding, and just lazing by the pool are offered. Two very generous meals are included in the price of the room. The rooms are a bit older, but charming and private with thatched roofs and are very spacious.

We have unfortunately just returned from an awesome time spent at Cathedral Peak. In my mind, some of the negative reviews have been totally uncalled for, we encountered nothing but good service from start to finish, our arrival was met by a friendly guard showing us where to go and where to park once we had offloaded our luggage.

We've been to Cathedral Peak twice before and we think its the best place you'll find in that region - and yes, we have stayed in several other hotels in the Drakensberg region on previous occasions.

Lovely break after Christmas rush. Hotel clean and staff friendly . Great family time playing chess, bowls, golf and relaxing around the pool after scenic walk in the mountains. Only managed to fit in walk to Mushroom rock during our short stay. Food was magnificent - always a tricky choice at dinner time .
