“A Welcome Escape”
Reviewed 17 November 2016

We spent a long weekend at Fordoun as a retreat after a pretty hectic work schedule of late and were looking for a peaceful tranquil escape in the Midlands with comfy rooms, spectacular views, an amazing Spa and sumptuous food. That's exactly what we got! A lovely setting in the Nottingham road area, Fordoun is a real treat and a must stay for anyone planning on visiting this part of the world. The Spa was heavenly, our Midlands Suit beautifully appointed, tranquil and private and the food was delicious. Exactly what we were looking for and we will definitely be back! Thank you!

Room Tip: The suites are magnificent. Treat yourself!

My husband and I went to Fordoun for some down time and a bit of pampering. It's exactly what we got. Staff were friendly and helpful, food was great, room was lovely and the spa and quality of the treatments was top notch.

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 highly.
There is golf just down the road.
The service is excellent. Breakfast and dinner was outstanding.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: From what I could see all the rooms were excellent!

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.
