Cathedral Peak Horse Riding

Cathedral Peak Hotel

A getaway for all the family with breath-taking mountain views

In the unspoilt Drakensberg mountain range

Cathedral Peak’s service and hospitality assure you a memorable stay

Nestled in the unspoiled surroundings of the Drakensberg mountain range, which is a World Heritage Site. A paradise of fresh mountain air and exquisite surroundings, Cathedral Peak Hotel is renowned for its natural beauty. Just 250 km from Durban and 400 km from Johannesburg Cathedral Peak is easily accessible. Ideal for a holiday, conference, or to enjoy an unforgettable honeymoon after your romantic wedding in the chapel, Cathedral Peak’s service and hospitality assure you a memorable stay. Since the hotel first opened to guests in 1939, the van der Riet family has succeeded in offering warm hospitality, combined with exceptional service and value for money.

Cathedral Peak offers a wide choice of rooms. We recommend the individually decorated executive/honeymoon rooms, which are set in lovely gardens. Each has a large four-poster bed, underfloor heating and spa bath. There are also deluxe family suites, as well as deluxe inter-leading rooms. All hotel rooms provide tea and coffee making facilities, heaters, telephones, televisions and en-suite bathrooms with both bath and shower. Each room has a private veranda with magnificent mountain views.

The hotel organises many activities including guided and self-guided walks. A long day’s guided climb from the hotel will take you to the famous peak; or walk in the mountains and find San rock paintings. Facilities at this resort hotel include tennis, squash, heated and unheated swimming pools, golf and mini-golf, fully equipped gym, steam bath and beauty therapist.
