Room perfect as always. Everything always works, attention to detail is obvious and the food is exquisite. All my guests are bowled over by everything. The staff are friendly and willing to help with anything. The location under the peaks is mind blowing.
This was not my first visit, or my second, but one of the several, and every time I have loved every minute. I took slow, steady guided hikes this time around, played a round of golf, enjoyed the heated swimming pool, and had the most amazing massage. I was aiming for rest and relaxation and that is exactly what I got. I returned home fresh and renewed. I will be back and next time, maybe I'll feel strong enough to take on one of the more challenging walks. One of my all time favorites for it's beauty and charm.
The room was excellent, very well appointed and delightful. I participated in 3 good guided hikes with very knowledgeable guides who accommodated my hiking as well as that of less capable hikers. The food was very well prepared and present in a buffet style. The other residents that we ran into were liberal South Africans who were delightful conversationalists. We could easily have stayed longer.
We recently spent a few nights at the magnificent Cathedral Peak hotel in the Central Drakensberg region of South Africa. The hotel is located in a beautiful valley, surrounded by some of the most awe-inspiring mountain scenery on earth. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The room rate includes a full buffet breakfast, two tea-hours and an out-of-this world dinner buffet (with the best pecan nut pie I've ever had) Two bars - one more of a gentleman's bar and the other a sports bar - make good pre and post dinner venues. At night, a turn-down service includes chocolates and a bedtime story about African folklore. The hotel has a colonial feel and was first established in 1939. There are a wide range of free activities to choose from: almost every sport type from golf to squash; a nice pool; kids play areas; guided walks and many more. Guests can also rent quad bikes and mountain bikes to roam the area, or go for a helicopter flip. Fly-fishing is also on offer. The main star for us was the many walking trails into the mountains. These range from a gentle stroll to high-intensity climbing trails. The hotel offers maps and guides on request. Another stand-out feature is the variety of birds in the area. Bird watching tours are on offer. A drive from Pretoria took us there in five hours. We can't wait to go back to this mountain paradise.
An outstanding experience in our too short stay. A place we would love to return to for a longer visit. Thank you to all staff.
I just keep on coming back!
As always we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return. We love the setting in the mountains, the ambience of the hotel, the wonderful service and delicious meals. We hope to have a family reunion here as both our children know Cathedral Peak as do our grandchildren now. Thank you all so much.
Thank you to everybody who made our time here so enjoyable. Special thanks for the beautiful good night stories. A lovely touch.
Extremely enjoyable stay.
Wonderful trip. Already planning a return trip. Thank you.
Wonderful stay as usual. Staff are very friendly, we feel at home.
The service was good, the rooms were of good standard. The location is far but is a nice place to be. We enjoyed the playing drums with the hotel choir, the hiking to Doreen Falls, putt-putt and also the bowling. Overall I enjoyed my stay.
The last time we were here the boys were toddlers, and they still enjoyed it now as teenagers. The food was good and the staff friendly and professional. There is a hike for everyone. We will be back to do the challenge, we only did 2 of the 4 hikes of the Cathedral Four challenge.
I have been coming to this place for 15 years, first with my wife and now with all my kids. Rooms are comfortable, the food is great, the hotel facilities are very relaxing and the hikes are always fantastic. The location of the hotel is just the best.
The best of the best. The hotel was beautiful and clean. The food was No. 1 The staff so friendly. My son got married here and all was wonderful. We will go every year from now. Thank you to all of the staff at Cathedral Peak.
This is such a well organised/managed venue that it compares with the best in the world. Thanks to you and your family for sharing this fantastic place with the public. The staff are excellent, friendly and efficient. Wish you all a fantastic future and we will be back.
We have been coming here for many years, and every visit is better than the previous one. Thank you.
Overall, better than expected and will certainly be back when possible. The Chef is a delightful and very helpful man. How he produces food like this every day is beyond me.
A wonderful experience - will return again. Staff exemplary.
Enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back again.
