Regarded as one of South Africa’s most magnificent natural wonders, and noted as a World Heritage Site, the Drakensberg mountain range spans miles and miles of unspoilt mountainous terrain, offering impossibly beautiful views at every turn. Here, a classic family-friendly resort, oozing old-world charm and boasting a series of excellent facilities and activites for the whole family to enjoy awaits. Situated some 250km from Durban and 400km from Johannesburg, Cathedral Peak Hotel is the most famous in the area and has been hosting holidaymakers and Drakensberg pilgrims for generations. A family-owned property, guests are assured of warm hospitality and an outstanding value-for-money experience.
The resort, with its breathtaking views and postcard pretty position is certainly in a league of its own and has been offering a hearty welcome to conference and family vacationers since it opened in 1925. Guests may choose from a wide variety of rooms (104 in total) for every eventuality – from standard open plan thatched rooms sleeping three to twin rooms, interleading rooms for families as well as a variety of larger and more luxurious suites.
While enormously popular with families in the school holiday period, Cathedral Peak is equally popular with wedding parties and honeymooners, after all what could be more romantic that saying your vows on the highest range in South Africa? Of course, the resort is well-liked by conference goers who are able to balance intense work with sufficient play while checked in to this four-star hotel resort.
Cathedral Peak offers an enormous menu of activities and entertainment opportunities for guests young and old. From an indoor games room and gym to guided hikes, mountain bike trails, horseriding expeditions and even a nine-hole golf course ensures a healthy and activity-based holiday and fun for the family. There are also heated and non-heated swimming pools and even a 10m climbing wall if being this high up isn’t high enough.
For people wanting to get away from it all to a reasonably priced unique destination where the crisp mountain air revives and rejuvenates, Cathedral Peak Hotel is a resort that will surely do the trick.
