“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed at the Fordoun at the beginning of January for the end of our holiday.
It was a wonderful time. The hotel and rooms are lovely and the staff is very attentive. We only had 1 dinner there which was great as well.
Spa treatments where excellent.
If anything it would want more offers for 'packages', e.g. spa treatments or dinner, bed & breakfast.
The rest was great stuff !

I came here with my family from Australia. We stayed for around a week and it was the best time I've ever had! The service was impeccable, the rooms lovely, restaurant delicious, spa relaxing and staff extremely friendly and helpful. I felt rejuvenated and relaxed even after such a short stay - I have already recommended it to all my friends and family at home. Thank you everyone at Fordoun Hotel & Spa for making our holiday in Natal so enjoyable!

We have stayed at Fordoun twice now. Our first visit was on our honeymoon and the second for an anniversary celebration! It is a magical place, set in a gorgeous and tranquil location. The spa is out of this world. The staff have magic hands and make you feel relaxed and pampered from the word go.

The rooms are well thought out and we loved the underfloor heating, large bath and beautiful views.

The restaurant service and food is 5 star and all meals are gorgeously presented!
We would highly recommend it and look forward to our next stay!

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of an organised tour of South Africa. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculate. The public areas of the hotel are very comfortable and the food especially the breakfasts were excellent. The staff are very well trained and provide a consistently and friendly level of service. Use the spa facilities they are very good. Our party left here onCloud 9.

Fordoun is probably the best place to stay in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands. The rooms are very comfortable and in fact five new ones have recently been added. Food is excellent and the owners and staff are there to welcome you. Superb spa. Hotel set in beautiful countryside with views of the Drakensberg Wifi good. Very comfortable place to stay when travelling in the Midlands or en route between Johannesburg and Durban

Room Tip: They are all good but the new ones have your own fireplace!

It's my 2nd time at Fordoun hotel and it truly gives 5 star hotels a run.
It's immaculate, the staff treat you like they will do anything for you. I was feeling a bit chilly, so they just delivered a water bottle to my room!
Spacious and fresh. Love it

We stayed at the Fordoun for 3 nights as part of our first trip to South Africa for a friends wedding - what a beautiful place! The room was huge and really unique. The whole place was just very peaceful. We didn't have a car so the hotel arranged for LOTS of transfers for us - I can't remember re the name if the driver but he was so helpful and when he took us to the wedding he brought a special car round! We also loved the spa and went every day! Great value treatments. I would stay here again in a heartbeat
