They really do know how to treat their guests. We found all the staff and management to be super friendly and very helpful. The restaurant food is first class! The rooms are very very clean and well looked after throughout your stay. They tick all the 5 star hotel boxes. We will be back!

We stayed at Fordoun for the Midmar Mile weekend and it is certainly worth its rating. Great hotel and good spa after the swimming event. Personal attention from the owners and great innovative menu with good wine list made for a magnificent weekend. Highly recommended.

Rooms are fabulous--every comfort one could want. Topside luxury rooms are extra comfortable--with great views over the midlands.Staff very helpful. Breakfast was great. However we ate ate dinner quite late and were disappointed-- veal fillets arrived without nut crumb pudding without promised cream--and when I asked the waiter why--he just shrugged and said the chef was not in the kitchen!...

We were celebrating my birthday and decided to treat ourselves at this hotel. We booked our overnight stay here because of the SPA. On our way there we were discussing the treatments and were all excited! On arrival we were told that the spa is full and they cannot help us with any treatments. Oh my world, that's not on!!...

Very cosy hotel in the middle of Midlands! It was winter when we visited and on arrival a fire was prepared in our room which has lots of books to chose from! The restaurant is top class, from breakfast to dinner, the chef does not stop to impress! The family that own the place walk around and greet the guests!...

What a wonderful surprise. We stayed here for a few nights. The rooms were well presented and of high quality. The best part is having a massage at the spa. Very pleased indeed. Professional and friendly service. The staff are trained to the highest standards and have the customers best interests at heart which makes a big difference. As I...

I have just discovered the best way to escape and rest for the weekend. Fordoun Hotel and Spa is set on a beautiful farm where you can walk, run, cycle visit sites on the midlands meander or simply stop. Enjoy the wonderful Spa with treatments that make you go gaga and facilities and quite spaces that you could escape to...

We spent a lovely nine-day holiday at Fordoun. The service is brilliant, staff very friendly, elegant and spacious rooms. Food is delicious, but dinner menu is quite fancy, so nine days is a long time to eat gourmet meals. We stayed in room 2 which backs onto a huge open lawn which is beautiful and there are nice walks to...
