Welcome to Cathedral Peak Hotel – The Hidden Gem of the Drakensberg

Hotel History

The history of Cathedral Peak Hotel: From romantic vision to idyllic reality

This story starts, as all great stories do, with a great upheaval 150 million years ago, the shifting of vast continents caused a volcanic eruption that created the great escarpment that we call the Drakensberg. The passing of time and the shifting of seasons have carved this majestic mountain range into the imposing peaks and lush ravines that Cathedral Peak Hotel calls home today.
