We last stayed here in 1990 (!), so we fully expected to see many changes, and in the main we were pleasantly surprised. It was quiet when we stayed (Mon to Thurs), so service was good, and there was still plenty of choice on the buffet for both breakfast and dinner (gone are the old days of the a la...

The Drakensberg is just magical every season of the year! The hotel has a gorgeous view and the pool is heated! You wallow in the warm water and watch the shadows change on the mountain. There are poolside games, bar service and the ground upkeep are impeccable. The meals and the rooms are great! There is a lot of attractions...

Went for a week over Christmas, the whole family were very happy (including two adult children). Lovely views, great walks, horse riding, spa and good food...And it's in the Drakensberg. Heaven on earth.

What a wonderful place to visit, we were there over the long game weekend and I must say that we had a wonderful time. The executive room is secluded and peaceful. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast and dinner will definitely not let you go hungry. The views and hacking trails are a must. Thank you for...

Traveled down to Cathedral peak for a long standing friends wedding this last weekend... the venue is in the most breathtaking area I have seen! I only wish I had had more time to explore and go hiking, but I will definitely be back! All staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in had an incredible view...

Driving into the Drakensberg mountains the views of the hotel and grounds are amazing but the actual hotel and their staff are disappointing !! Our rooms were in need of an upgrade but at least they were comfortable, private and quiet. The hotel had an old fashioned feel and it lacked the personal touch and attention to detail. What really...

The Cathedral Peak hotel is in a stunning setting, surrounded by the Drakensberg mountains. Rooms were spacious and we were fortunate enough to have a private balcony area, although that is not the case with all rooms. Dinner and breakfast buffet are included and were both very nice. Morning and afternoon tea are also from 10.30 - 11.30 and 3.30...
