This hotel is new, clean, and modern. There is free parking. Nice restaurant and bar. Location is great, right across the street from the Gateway Mall. Only a five minute ride to the beaches; fifteen minutes to Durban. It is designed for short term, apartment type rentals, although they also accomodate daily stays. Only strange thing is that the elevators are located on the outside of the hotel, not in the lobby.

"This is a beautiful hotel in a dramatic location."
We spent 3 days and nights in Cathedral Peak and could have doubled our time there and still not have been bored. The walking is amazing to suit all ages. In addition there is leisure facilities at the hotel including golf swimming mini golf and a games room. The food while buffet service for all but lunch is excellent with a huge variety of dishes.
We loved this place.
This hotel has retained the old world colonial charm with dark wood and marble floors. This hotel has character. The staff are friendly and are well informed as to good tourist destinations. We were warned not to venture very far from the hotel due to safety issues. Visitors should be aware that this hotel is situated in the CBD area on the sea front where the 'black' population live. There is a strong police presence on the sea front. Must have a guide to visit any tourist attractions in the CBD for safety.
This hotel is of a very high standard, and a bargain for what we paid on Expedia. The staff were exceptional. They were very friendly and attentive. The location is excellent in relation to Umhlanga business area as well as the Gateway shopping centre. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I highly recommend it.

Stayed on 2 separate occasions and had great experiences both times! All of our requests were responded to perfectly, and with a smile. I was traveling with friends and we had 2 rooms (4 rooms total). Each room was different, comfortable and quite luxurious! There are plenty of private sitting areas, indoors and outdoors, and great views of the city, Indian Ocean and beautiful lush foliage. Totally relaxing!
We got a room overlooking both the ocean and the river and were chaffed to boot!. Rooms were lovely, clean and the staff super friendly and helpful front desk to the security guards. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe - away from the madding crowds.Will definitely stay here again!!
