“Wonderful getaway, comfort, kindness and first class restaurant”
Reviewed March 5, 2009

If you travel to the Midlands or the Drakensberg, make Fordoun spa and hotel a must stop for at least a couple of days. You will be thrilled by this calm and sophisticated little hotel and the comfortable rooms and kind wonderful happy staff, who make you feel welcome and secure. The owners Richard and John individually make their guests stay special and important. The Beauty spa and treatments, indoor and outdoor pools are delightful and with the jaccuzi, steam room and sauna plus the wonderful floatation pool you are in relaxation heaven. The rooms are tasteful and comfortable, spotless and well managed, the restaurant is very reasonably priced and excellen cuisine. What else can i say about this lovely hotel set in picturesque surroundings. A truly wonderful find and I'm going back!!!!

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.

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!

  • Liked — Variety of things to do or option to just completely relax and do nothing. Attentive hospitality.
  • Disliked — Couldn't stay longer.
