Cathedral Peak Hotel
Discover a paradise of fresh mountain air and exquisite surroundings. Cathedral Peak is renowned for its natural beauty, and the area boasts one of the most popular Drakensberg hotels.
From its cosy setting in a quiet valley, visitors look out onto a jagged ridge of mountains known as the Cathedral Spur; the escarpment looms above the hotel to the south and west.
For more than three generations, the van der Riet family have offered guests hospitality, quality and value for money. The lure of the great outdoors combined with the hotel's many facilities brings families back for holidays, time and again.
Accommodation ranges from spacious, interleading family rooms to private rondavels tucked away between the trees. The exclusive Presidential suite offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation boasting electric curtains, a fire place, FULL DStv, two televisions, spa bath, steam bath and heating/cooling facilities.
An exclusive conference venue offers multi-variable seating for up to 200 delegates together with fully equipped breakaway rooms. The quaint stone and thatch chapel with its magnificent view is the perfect setting for a memorable wedding.
When the mountain peaks bask in the last rays of late afternoon sunshine, enjoy sundowners in the comfort of Albert's Cocktail Bar, a friendly meeting place; or relax with the family and watch evening descend on the valley from the hotel patio. The elegant dining-room offers an extensive buffet and superb cuisine, personally supervised by the hotel's top class chef. After dinner, enjoy a game of darts or pool or watch sport on the big screen at the well-known late night Harry's Bar, where friends gather around a roaring log fire.
Hotel guests can enjoy a host of sports activities, including swimming, tennis, squash, horse and pony rides, trout fishing, bowls, floodlit mini-golf, volleyball, gym with steam bath and a leisurely game of golf on our scenic nine-hole golf course. Helicopter sight seeing tours and transfers are available by arrangement. The new climbing tower is a great alternative for corporate team building challenges as well as family fun.
The history of the San people lives on in the well-preserved Bushman paintings found in the nearby foothills. Doreen Falls is picturesque in its natural beauty, while the Rainbow Gorge features a spectacular mist of water droplets which creates a colourful rainbow effect - and offers cooling refreshment to passers-by!
The renowned Cathedral Peak Hotel is easily accessible, just 250km from Durban and 400km from Johannesburg. Airport transfers can be arranged through third party contractors.
We look forward to welcoming you for an unforgettable Drakensberg experience.
