Stayed a couple of nights as part of Natal Tour. Delightful hotel in stunning location. Room was excellent - large size with high quality fittings, including bathroom. Service very friendly & helpful. Meals were 1st class, with good range of varied foods, plus top quality. Thoroughly enjoyable stay - would do so again & happy to recommend.

My husband and I visited over Easter 2015. The scenery was stunning and we enjoyed horse riding, quad-biking, mini golf and walking. The hotel was very busy over the break and so it wasn't as romantic as we had thought. The pool was very crowded. The food was nice - buffet for meals - but we were definitely looking forward...

Very nice hotel, perfect location. Good restaurant and nice rooms. Staff could be more friendly and helpful. Reception wasn't helpful at all: golfcourse, helicopter flight: here is the number, find out yourself! That should be better. Walking trails somewhat difficult to find and follow, should be better.

We visited Cathedral Peak Hotel a few years ago and loved it. This time we were disappointed. The views are simply out of this world and to sit in the bar before dinner and watch the thunderstorms rolling over the berg is something special. We cycled Mike's Pass which was great - if a bit of a slog. If you're...

Stayed here for two nights with family who had been before. Beautiful hotel, walks and scenery are stunning! Really nice family feel too with plenty of activities and morning and afternoon tea served every day. Dinner though was spectacular! I could never eat enough as the choice was overwhelming -- and all delicious!

We have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the past 30 years. It has the best position of any Hotel in the Drakensberg and by far the best variety of food. There are activities for everyone - golf, hiking, bowls, gymnasium, tennis, mini golf, mountain Biking, Helicopter Scenic Flights,etc.

Lovely family hotel, in great setting. Great staff. Wonderful walks, which everyone should do and take a picnic lunch. (don't get persuaded to do golf, helicopter rides, etc - enjoy the walks). They could have less children activities (i don't want my children away from me and occupied all the time). Try to get a room with a mountain view....
