We have stayed here quite a few times and it never disappoints. The scenery is stunning and there is plenty to do or nothing to do, whichever you choose. Rooms are very good and housekeeping keep them very clean. The food is always excellent with a great variety at breakfast and dinner. Morning and afternoon tea is also included so...

Cathedral Peak Hotel is a big busy traditionally run family hotel with quite a history. We arrived during peak season. There were other families checking in at the same time as us. The receptionist handed us our keys and told us that we had an outstanding fee to pay, which we were sure we had already payed. It was only...

What a pleasant surprise this resort turned out to be. Utilized it as a stopover on the way to Durbs from Jhb. The rooms are spacious and modern even thought this resort has been around for quite awhile. The hiking trails and activities are well organized. And for those of us who just wanted to laze around, the pool has...

3 generations all enjoyed a recent visit to this hotel. Golf, hiking, helicopter rides, swimming pool, games and more. The food is ideal - something for everyone. The staff were smiling and helpful. You can do as much or as little as you like.

Not having visited the hotel for a while, we decided to do a family weekend breakaway after a long hard year. The drought that has gripped KwaZulu Natal clearly has made its mark particularly driving through the local settlement 15/20 Kms before arriving at the resort. The soil erosion and lack of vegetation is stark. Finally arriving in the reserve...

I have not stayed here in 20 years. What an improvement. The staff are friendly, there are many activities on offer and the view has not changed - it is still one of the best vistas! We stayed in the thatch chalets with unrestricted views. The chalets were lovely and cool and quiet. All and all I loved staying here

Brilliant situation. Awesome food. Great rooms. We were there at the early start of the peak season and our only complaint was collecting pool towels and sports equipment from the main reception. People were booking into the hotel which took up time and the two staff members were busy signing them in. This delayed the service to the guests who...
