Message from the General Manager

We hope you’ve all had a great start to the year and that you’re gearing up for some relaxing family time over the coming Easter holidays! We’ve had an amazing summer period and, as the Drakensberg slides into the crisp days and clear skies of autumn, we’re excited to tell you what’s coming up at Cathedral Peak Hotel!

This year sees us celebrating our 80th anniversary in our tranquil, secluded Drakensberg valley, and we feel very privileged to be able to look back on an unbroken 8-decade legacy of family-owned and run hospitality. Even though our doors have been open since before colour television was invented, we still see every sunrise over our beautiful mountain surrounds as a blessing, and we look forward to another 80 years of delivering unparalleled accommodation and entertainment excellence!

As part of the many amazing specials and deep discount deals we’re rolling out as part of our 80th birthday celebration, children under 12 accompanying 2 adults for 3 or more nights at the hotel will stay for free! This special has been extended to April 30th due to popular demand, so pack up the kids and let them roam the Drakensberg instead of staying cooped up inside these school holidays.

In line with our on-going environmental sustainability initiative, our hotel has completely moved away from single-use plastic straws. Over half a billion plastic straws are used and discarded globally every day, and we have changed over to biodegradable ‘bio-straws’ to do our part in saving our oceans.

Check out some of the other great specials, news and events coming up at the hotel below. 

I look forward to welcoming you to the hotel for an immersive Drakensberg experience like no other!

The Cathedral 4 Challenge

The Cathedral 4 Challenge is a fantastic achievement for any level of hiker. Complete 4 beautiful trails through the Drakensberg, from easy strolls to vigorous hikes, and receive the Cathedral 4 Award complete with a medal and certificate! 

The 4 hikes are a gentle walk to Doreen Falls, a moderate hike to the Fern Forest, a steep but clear hike to Mushroom Rock, and a strenuous uphill scramble to the unrivalled views from Baboon Rock. The hikes can be done in any order over any period of time. Register at reception or with our entertainment team to qualify.

Club Champs 2019 a Great Success

Our Club Champs golf competition for 2019 was a fantastic experience for all, and players relished in teeing off while surrounded by the dramatic and majestic Drakensberg mountain range. With many private bets amongst the 64 participants, competition was fierce but friendly, and it was a treat to see club members from across the country form new friendships and reunite with old mates.

For the full results of the competition, as well as some truly amazing photos,
please visit the Cathedral Peak Golf Club website.
