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!

Room Tip: da alle Zimmer ebenerdig, und weit von der Straße entfernt sind, kann man keine besonderen Empfehlungen geben
