This is our second visit to the hotel, the first being for a wedding last February. It says it all that we returned the following year to enjoy this area and hotel again. If you are looking for a hotel with lots of large swimming pools, very loud entertainment,numerous restaurants and night life until the early hours of the morning....

The hotel setting is well placed for nature loving people, set on the base of the mountain with beautiful green scenery. The welcoming was excellent, we were offered drinks while being checked in. All the rooms were clean well maintained and refreshments supplied to the rooms. The staff were brilliant, very helpful and going beyond the call of their duties....

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 Upon getting to our rooms, the rooms are super outdated, its a glorified Secunda hotel.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.
