A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life , the lush green landscape eases the mind and soul. All staff from the reception, spa, kitchen & house keeping where very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are very spacious & neat , bathrooms are modern and spotless (just the way I like it)

Stayed in the Superior Suite which was simply the best.

Food was good & was very impressed that even though the menu was limited, they catered to the best.

Will definitely be visiting again.

Lived up to expectation - nice to get what you plan for
Rooms were very good - warm in winter with all the trimmings
Pity the restaurant menu, food a little disappointing
Choice of food unimaginative, also everything we tried was very fatty / oily

The menu has been designed to cater for all palettes and huge focus on local, fresh fare!

I needed a stop over on the way to my birthday retreat in UMhlanga as a treat and looked up possibilities here on Trip Advisor.
I settled on Fordoun.
I sent them a list of all my allergies, wheat/gluten/banana/sulphites prior to travelling.
Upon arrival, the room was cold and not ideal.
None of allergies had been catered for and I had to navigate through the menu and thankfully found something for both dinner and breakfast. Upon my departure I forgot a clothing item. They contacted me to notify me.
I gave feedback about my stay decided to stop over on the way back, rather than just collect my item.
The room was warm and great.
The chef who was new, 5 days in the job, came to speak to me and paid attention to all the allergies in preparing the meal and it was a great meal.
He also undertook to do better in future.
The staff is warm and very accommodating and based on this improved service and effort to improve, I would recommend it.
They sure can still do better to cater for allergies.

Room tip: The rack rate is a lot cheaper during the week compared to the weekend/peak times.

I needed a break after a stressful start to the year.
From the moment we arrived, service was excellent. Very caring and attention to detail perfect.

After an average lunch on the first day, the meals were excellent! Staff very willing to listen to opinions and very willing to please.

Room spacious and cute, old style charm.

Spa was excellent. Treatments exactly what I needed and service once again amazing.
I will definitely revisit Fordoun!
Well done to the team!!!

This is my fourth stay at Fordoun and I always leave remembering how much I love it. The staff are most obliging. The food always delicious. The environment so calming and the spa is amazing. What else is left to say. I always stay in the superior rooms and I love the decor.
