Explore South Africa

Cathedral Peak Hotel is a historic property found amidst the mighty Drakensburg Mountains. First opening its doors to guests in 1939, the hotel has remained in the same family since that time and continues to provide high levels of service. Remote and secluded, the hotel is situated on 400 hectares of grassland and is surrounded by the Cathedral Peak range of the Drakensberg Mountains (from which it takes its name), emancipating guests from the everyday bustle of life with quiet calm.

There are a number of room options on offer as well as two suites. All rooms feature en suite bathrooms and of the 4 room types 3 possess verandas. Rooms are quite spacious and some, such as the superior room are inter-leading, ideal for families. The two suites are well appointed, with comfortable beds and excellent mountain views. The interiors of the accommodation are relatively modern and laced with traditional African undertones.

Cathedral Peak provides a range of facilities, including a gym with a steam bath, a 9 hole golf course and a special children's dining area and babysitting service for families. However, it is the dramatic landscape that offers guests the most. Take in the phenomenal mountain scenery from the air with helicopter flights or enjoy any of the 18 different walks and hikes the area has to offer, ranging from gentle strolls everyone can take part in to more serious hikes.

After a relatively long drive to the Drakensbergs, we reached the Cathedral Peak hotel. The staff were very friendly but Cathedral Peak some work to do if it wishes to live up to the Mahlatini standard of the other hotels we stayed in. Bearing in mind the clientele in the Cathedral Peak, the menu's could be develioped to have a more haute cuisine approach for people who want to pay a little extra. However, the scenery was spectacular.
