The Cathedral Peak Hotel lies in the heart of the spectacular Drakensberg mountain range. These imposing mountains, along with the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, have earned the status of being a World Heritage Site, and the hotel is recognised as being one of the most popular hotels in the Natal Drakensberg.
Just 250km from Durban and 400km from Johannesburg, the Cathedral Peak Hotel enjoys convenient locale, while remaining remote enough to soak in the years of authentic South African heritage, sharing the valley in which the San, or Bushmen, hunters once roamed.
Cathedral Peak boasts a property of 400ha and is unique for its situation within the Cathedral Peak Nature Reserve, alongside the Cathedral Peak range of mountains. The Van der Riet family will ensure all guests feel welcomed and experience the tranquillity of the rugged Drakensberg Mountains in three-star comfort.
Cathedral Peak's standard en-suite rooms and standard thatched rooms are equipped to accommodate between two and four guests, and enjoy their unique location in the hotel's beautiful gardens.
Deluxe suites are perfect for the travelling family, and comfortably sleep up to four guests in twin or double rooms. These suites offer the family a private verandah and garden.
For those very special occasions, the executive and honeymoon suites offer luxurious lodgings with the added benefits of extravagance of a four-poster bed, bar fridge, electric fireplace, spa bath, underfloor heating and private verandah. In addition, each enjoys custom decor for a unique experience.
The Mponjwane Presidential Suite offers true opulence in quality finishes. A fireplace, spa bath, steam bath, underfloor heating, two televisions with full DSTV, air-conditioning, electric curtains, and private verandah work in harmony to create sheer extravagance for the discerning guest. For ultimate convenience, a private golf cart is available to guests of the Mponjwane Suite for the duration of their stay.
Varied buffets are available for breakfast and dinner at Cathedral Peak's dining room. Children are afforded a private dining room, a venue where they receive healthy meals and are entertained and cared for during meal times. Babysitters are available on request.
Cathedral Peak's on-site 9-hole golf offers alternate tees for an 18-hole game. Rest rooms, lounge, pub (Philip's Pholy) and a terrace create the ideal 19th hole for tired golfers. The course is 5542m and graded a par 70.
