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.
Hilton 5 Star Hotel... Everything you would expect....easy check in check out... Needs a more reasonably priced wine list in the bars and restaurant ... By South African Standards. Need to offer free parking to residents.. Or at least a one off daily charge...
It was a difficult time as I had travelled from the U.K. to attend a family funeral. I wanted a place that would look after us during this difficult time. I am happy to say that on all levels : the grand beauty of the colonial hotel, pool, ambience, dining on the outside terrace over looking Durban, 5 star food and amazing service from the staff. Jean - Francois and his team were exceptional in meeting our needs and requests. I am very grateful for their understanding, professionalism and superb service. Our family would like to say a Big thank you to all the staff and hope to return under better circumstances in the future.
