Gorgeous setting with the lush green pastures and tasteful décor.
Staff at spa and restaurant very friendly and helpful.
We stayed at the superior rooms ( room 21) . Beautifully decorated however the heating needs improvement. The fire place does not warm the room and something was wrong with the timer for the underfloor heating. This made the dressing area and bathroom very cold.
The lounge area could not be enjoyed due to the cold weather and poor heating in the room. I also had to inform the staff that the hot water ran out after 5 minutes in the shower.
There was a delay at supper due to the large volumes of orders that went into the kitchen at once. My food was divine however my husbands Salmon was burnt. He did inform the staff , who prepared another dish for him and that was enjoyable and appreciated.
Overall good stay however would advise that the superior rooms are only booked in summer or until the heating in the room is improved.

Dear Darryl and Desmay, We thank-you for taking the time to share your Fordoun experience on TripAdvisor. We greatly appreciate your kind support and valued feedback. We sincerely apologise for the fire not warming your room appropriately and for the poor heating. Our maintenance team have adjusted the timer for the floor and showers. Sadly it was also a very cold, misty Midlands day and so sorry. Our Chef Jono apologises again for the overcooked salmon and looks forward to introducing our new Spring menu to you on your return. On behalf of the Fordoun team, we sincerely apologise for the above mishaps and hoping to welcome you back soon for a 5 star experience. Warm Fordoun regards, The Fordoun Team - Rich (MD, Jules (GM) and Molly (Marketing)

A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life , the lush green landscape eases the mind and soul. All staff from the reception, spa, kitchen & house keeping where very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are very spacious & neat , bathrooms are modern and spotless (just the way I like it)

Stayed in the Superior Suite which was simply the best.

Food was good & was very impressed that even though the menu was limited, they catered to the best.

Will definitely be visiting again.

I needed a stop over on the way to my birthday retreat in UMhlanga as a treat and looked up possibilities here on Trip Advisor.
I settled on Fordoun.
I sent them a list of all my allergies, wheat/gluten/banana/sulphites prior to travelling.
Upon arrival, the room was cold and not ideal.
None of allergies had been catered for and I had to navigate through the menu and thankfully found something for both dinner and breakfast. Upon my departure I forgot a clothing item. They contacted me to notify me.
I gave feedback about my stay decided to stop over on the way back, rather than just collect my item.
The room was warm and great.
The chef who was new, 5 days in the job, came to speak to me and paid attention to all the allergies in preparing the meal and it was a great meal.
He also undertook to do better in future.
The staff is warm and very accommodating and based on this improved service and effort to improve, I would recommend it.
They sure can still do better to cater for allergies.

I needed a break after a stressful start to the year.
From the moment we arrived, service was excellent. Very caring and attention to detail perfect.

After an average lunch on the first day, the meals were excellent! Staff very willing to listen to opinions and very willing to please.

Room spacious and cute, old style charm.

Spa was excellent. Treatments exactly what I needed and service once again amazing.
I will definitely revisit Fordoun!
Well done to the team!!!
