We went for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely romantic time. Everything is very well run from accommodation bookings to check in to the spa to dinners which are delicious. Rooms are s but old fashioned but I suppose that adds to the charm. Great pictures around the establishment of the farming history. WiFi could be better

This time around we tried the Fordoun Farm, Chalets. We stayed in a dbl storey; 3bedroom self-catering fully serviced chalet. Gorgeous, spacious chalets placed amidst the beautiful nature in the Midlands.
Being at Fordoun always feels like having a 5-Star home away from your home!!
The Spa is always great. Management and Staff go always above and beyond the call of duty. I can only recommend it, but do yourself a favor and stay at least two - three days there, you walk away feeling rejuvenated.
Thank you Fordoun Management and Staff for yet another amazing stay.

We spent four days of our visit to the KZN Midlands Meander. Our room was well-appointed and serviced. In the evening this included a “Tuck in” and a bedtime story. The staff was discreet, professional, well-trained and very friendly. I could not fault the kitchen and waitrons.

Fordoun has a peaceful and neat spa, with professional staff and therapists. In my case a full body massage was capped by time in the flotation pool. This is an experience no patron should miss. It was not only rejuvenating, but gave me a sense of calm and self-awareness.

Fordoun Hotel and Spa should be at the top of your list.

I visited with my team (10 people) for a romantic photo-shoot & spa treatment. Upon arrival we were greeted by their very friendly staff and they assisted us with checking in and showed us our rooms. This place is naturally romantic and charming. They have endless and lush grounds. There are cows grazing and a little pond on their property.

Late in the afternoon, it was time for our spa treatment. The spa is clean and calming inside. I did not want to leave,I wanted to keep adding on treatments,that's how good the staff are. I kept falling asleep during my pedicure :)

Dinner time was the best. After the evening shoot we were allocated our own dining area. We ordered food we were not quite sure about and when the food was returned back to the kitchen, the manager was worried and came to check on us and even offered that we select something else. Well we didn't because it was our fault...

The food was sooo good, not to mention their three flavours ice cream which includes beetroot ice-cream, yep :) You should try it.

The rooms are beautiful and homely and we each got a bed time story to read before bedtime.

Overall I would definitely visit Fordoun again.
