Cathedral Peak Hotel
Cathedral Peak Hotel, Drakensberg, South Africa
Located in a protected area of the Drakensberg, Cathedral Peak Hotel nestles below a towering mountain of the same name, flanked by a gallery of equally stark and imposing summits that enclose the hotel on three sides.
The views of the mountains, and the opportunity to walk, climb or even fly around them are the main attractions of the hotel, which also has a mass of other facilities on offer from a 9 hole golf course to a bowling green.
The hotel is popular with families as children are well provided for, but is spread out enough, and in such a dramatic setting, that it should always be possible to find some solitude and privacy.
The décor and furnishings throughout the hotel are simple and modern, belying the history which goes back to 1939, attested to in numerous photographs that adorn the walls.
There are a good variety of rooms available, and all have some sort of view of the beautiful mountains that draw people to this area time and again.
