WOW! This is a serene country retreat surrounded by tranquil rolling hills. The room is romantic and charming. The grounds seem to stretch forever and make for a great walk or cycle - or go on 1 of 2 hikes. The main lodge has a great restaurant and comfortable lounges. Some in our group used the spa which they rated...

Such a great place to chill out and relax. Wonderful staff willing to do anything for you with a smile on their face. Owners always present and very chatty. Would recommend this hotel as a great location and very peaceful.

I am so in love with this place! It is like a lil piece of heaven, on earth. We booked in for a few days at the farm cottages and I was blown away! The cottages are so beautiful with amazing tasteful décor. I loved the modern up to date look and the attention to detail in every aspect. The...

The setting is pastoral and beautiful. We felt relaxed just going up the driveway. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The huge tub was perfect for a relaxing soak. The staff are friendly and the food very good. Attention to detail was excellent - an example is a French Press coffee maker in our room!

We stayed in one of the two bedroom self-catering cottages, which were great. (My only negative comment would be they were perhaps slightly lacking in character.) We (family of 4, kids of 14 and 12) made extensive use of the free pool, sauna, steam room and flotation tank (the latter was great fun). We also paid for various treatments which...

Had a wonderful experience at fordoun spa. The lovely welcoming environment makes you relax on arrival. I had a fantastic massage in the spa and spent some time floating in the amazing flotation tank. I left the spa feeling completely relaxed and rejuvenated. The accommodation is comfortable and luxurious with beautiful views. I went for lunch at the Restuarant and...

We have stayed at this hotel a few times. Very friendly staff, nice surroundings and spacious, clean rooms. Supper at the restaurant was a dissapointment, over priced and not good. Bread heated to near boiling point in a microwave before being served. Vegetable curry seemed like some leftover veg thrown together in a spicy sauce for R100. Aubergine and lentil...

Dear Tracy Thanks for your feedback, I am really disappointed with your experience in the restaurant thanks for bringing it to our attention, we certainly don’t want guests looking elsewhere to be fed so it is rather disturbing, and pertinent that it gets our attention. The WiFi unfortunately is unstable and we are reliant on it being brought wirelessly to...

We spent three wonderful nights at Fordoun for a family weekend away. As we were travelling with our son (4 years) we chose one of the superior rooms for extra space and weren't disappointed. Our spacious room was beautifully decorated, well appointed and had an unbelievable view of the Drakensberg. My mum and brother each stayed in one of the...
