Fordoun is close to my heart and for good reason. An overnight stay in February as a belated Valentine celebration did not disappoint. The rooms are well appointed, dinner was excellent as was breakfast the following morning. Highly recommended.

Delicious food and beautiful mountainous settings. I loved the log wood fires, luxurious suite and endless mist. The spa is highly recommended, but extremely busy - book well in advance for awesome massage therapists.

The venue is fabulous for big celebratory events such as weddings as there is a Chapel on the property too. My room was well prepared and cosy despite the inclement weather and the staff are incredibly welcoming and hospitable Short but lovely stay 😊

The Wedding Venue and self catering village have been completed since our previous stay. Wow! What a wonderful additional option for the growing clientele. The real reason for writing this review is to congratulate Bongi and Beauty on the dining room service - exemplary in every way. The hotel was packed for all four nights of our stay and yet,...

On arrival it rained so we were taken a decent ride to our room by golf buggy with our luggage. Typical of the constant care and attention shown to us over...

Attended a wedding at this venue which was outstanding. They have separate chapel and very large building for the reception, which was ideal. The food and service provided was outstanding. One of the best weddings we have ever attended.

We recently stayed at Fordoun the night after our wedding in The Midlands, and it was everything we hoped for and more. Friendly, accommodating staff to welcome us, a spacious, comfortable and clean room and a wonderful breakfast to go with it. Highly recommended and such a beautiful location and setting

We had an incredible stay at Fordoun Spa Hotel & loved every minute! Wished we could have stayed a week! Room 19 was spectacular! The decor & size of the suite was very generous & tasteful. We had our own patio to sip sundowners & admire a spectacular sunset over the Drakensberg. I especially loved the spacious bathroom & dressing...

Spent a weekend here and we had an incredible time being poked and prodded by the excellent and friendly staff. The rooms are stunning and the food sublime. The chef is a genious and luckily hasn't heard of counting calories!!
