Everybody have to experience these mountains at least once in their lifetime. To be sooo close to nature, to be able to appreciate God's Glory and breathtaking creations is something to experience and appreciate. Would go back in a heartbeat! This place is absolutely breathtaking!

An amazing location, with plenty to do for all ages. Loved the golf course. We were spoiled with two cool and slightly overcast days, which made the walks extremely pleasant. Just a warning, you will over-eat! but you can obviously offset this with some vigorous, or not so vigorous activities. The only negative I have is that we were "greeted"...

If you are looking for a chilled out holiday and just want to get away from it all, this place is perfect. The views of the mountains are breathtakingly majestic! Makes you forget about the madness of the "real world". The rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea are included in the room...

We stayed in a family (interleaving room) at Cathedral Peak hotel from 5-7 Jan 2017. 2 adults and 1 8-year-old.
