Fordoun Spa Hotel Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Nottingham Road
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2009

Having just spent a long weekend with 28 guests, I would unequivocally say that it was the finest all round holiday that we have ever enjoyed. The atmosphere induces instant relaxation, the accomodation and amenities superb, the cuisine simply delicious and the array of activities that the South African midlands has to offer makes you realize that you need at least a week to explore this area.

Reviewed 5 February 2009

We arrived at Fordoun and were met with a warm smile and a delicious welcoming drink. It didn't take us long to relax into our elegant room, slip into our gowns and make our way to the spa for a fantastically rejuvenating head and shoulder massage. Very much appreciated after a day on the road!!

Dinner was simply delicious and complemented by a fabulous bottle of red. I have never had a better thai red curry mussle dish in my life!

Unfortunately we were only able to stay for one night but we did manage to spend some time with Dr Ndlovu (who has met the Queen may I add!) who is the local Sangoma and traditional healer - as well as one of the directors of Fordoun. He showed us around his healing garden and gave us some insight into his life and how he came about being a Sangoma - incredible story!

We will definitely be going back to Fordoun to experience the rest of what there is to offer but next time we'll be staying for longer!

You can't go wrong!
