Very dissapointed. The food was below par and the wine pairing was actually quite bad. We had a 6 course meal but wine with only 4 meals. The wine offered was cheap wine that you can get anywhere, not what is expected from Hartford house...More

Hartford house is situation in the picturesque quiet Midlands- KZN. The farm is pristine, well maintained with stunning gardens that we enjoyed strolling through. We stayed in the beautiful lake suite – Siyabonga. With its breath-taking views, super clean and well decorated heated floor rooms,...More

This is a truly magnificent property. The room was beautiful, the service friendly and efficient, the restaurant a total culinary highlight (I recommend doing the wine pairing) and then of course there’s the idyllic setting. I can’t wait to return.

Two night stay at Hartford House with our two sons. Highly recommend this establishment if you have an interest in fine food and wine. We had the opportunity of experiencing the 6 course food tasting menu and wine pairing, this was indeed a gastronomic delight,...More

The Wife and I were fortunate to get invited for a night away. Hartford House is certainly one of the many beautiful gems located in the Natal Midlands. Having a break in the countryside or the Drakensberg is always welcoming and special to us. We...More

About
Description
Peering through one teakwood door at Hartford House, you face an historic world. Opening another, the distant sounds of an ancient people at work lilt across the silent landscape, a country of great space, ...More spectacular mountains and big skies. This place commands a headland between the world of traditional cultures and the splendid style of the 1800s. It is the resolution of all South African safaris. The journey’s exclamation point, a retreat from the hubbub where you make sense of a fast life and its senseless details. This is where we learn to redress ourselves on a first name basis. There are too many luxury hotels these days offering the same: a chocolate on the pillow, canned romance, and cuisine called “haut” because it’s spelled in French. Hartford stands apart for its integrity; its architecture and its views, its sounds, its scents and its colours; its racehorses and its people are all exhilarating surprises, unique to this Zululand, this culture, to Africa. Yes, you come here to be pampered, but at Hartford luxury is the journey, not the destination. The truth is, Hartford just happened. A home, and a grand one at that, which grew into a hotel. A community looks to it as its watering hole, its nexus of entertainment, its fountain of gossip. In so many ways, it’s gained and regained inspiration from the cultures it celebrates. It is life’s exception, a place at the same time comfortable beyond dreams, yet innocent of pretence. Moulded by its people, their vibrancy and their enterprise. And driven by a wish to be remembered. Less
