Dad’s word:

Cathedral Peak is located right at the base of the Drakensberg Mountains. The peaks, often snow-covered in winter, tower over the hotel, and access to hiking the Berg is straight from the hotel. It is an idyllic setting, with the activities being varied and endless – there really is something suitable for all ages. The buffet breakfasts and dinners are legendary. A great family getaway.

Christmas Holiday

"Our stay at Cathedral Peak over the Christmas holiday was fantastic. The staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to answer any query. The FOOD is out of this world. We wished we had three stomachs!!!! The Christmas Day dinner was one of the best we have ever had. Hats off the the chefs who worked so hard. We have been going to Cathedral Peak over the years since our honeymoon in 1974 and it has NEVER let us down. Well done."

Soul Food

"My husband and I recently spent a Restful few days at Cathedral Peak in the Berg to recharge our batteries. Having visited a number of other places in the Berg we were very pleasantly surprised at the accommodation, the food and of course blown away by the views which I think must be the most spectacular in the Berg. We loved every moment, even though I had hoped for some snow on the mountain, the spectacular views more than made up for the fact that the weather didn't co-operate! We were looking for something that would rest our souls and still give us the opportunity to experience fine dining, restful sherries by the fires and lovely long walks (and Doreen Falls was a wonderful hike, well worth the visit). We want to return but with children and grandchildren as we found there was something for everyone, of all ages."

From Johannesburg:

  • Take the N5 from Harrismith toward the Free State. Not far out of the town turn left onto the R712, and after about 8 km, turn left again onto the R74. This route will take you past the Sterkfontein Dam, and down the scenic Oliviershoek Pass. Continue to Bergville. Just beyond Bergville, on the R74 to Winterton, turn right to the Central Berg Resorts. After about 16 km turn right to Emmaus/Cathedral Peak. It is approximately 31 km to Cathedral Peak.

From Durban:

  • On the N3, about 26 km beyond the Estcourt glide-off from the N3 freeway (and beyond the turnoff to the Central Berg Resorts) take the Bergville/Colenso off-ramp. Turn left onto the R74 to Winterton/ Bergville. (Ignore the apparently shorter route from Estcourt through Loskop - a section of this road is currently rough gravel. Marked with a red arrow on the map.) Turn left onto the R600 in Winterton, and turn right after approximately 1 km to Cathedral Peak. After 11 km there is a T-junction. Turn right and almost immediately left to Emmaus/Cathedral Peak. It is about 31 km to Cathedral Peak Hotel.
