We spent one night at Fordoun Spa in November 2018 after a 3 day safari and 3 days of walking in the Drakensburg mountains. Our only regret was that we didn't stay 2 or 3 nights.
The setting is beautiful, the rooms immaculate and the staff attentive. We used the gym, sauna and st

We have just come back from a wonderful week-end at Fordoun Village, where we celebrated the end of a cricket season with a Dads and Lads cricket match on the Fordoun pitch. We couldn’t of asked for a better setting, in the beautiful Midlands, where all families and boys were acc

Stayed at the hotel midweek and an afternoon of pampering at the spa. Absolutely everything about the Fordoun is perfect! Wonderful rooms without need of anything. The spa is truly world class, relaxing and exceptionally professional services. Dinner was fantastic and I can serio

After a self-indulgent morning at Fordoun Spa, it was just about lunch and the easiest was to walk over to the restaurant named Skye Bistro. A very inviting interior with white and pastel greens the dominating colours - very soothing. The menu was quite interesting but I decided

Hi Santi Thanks for your review, it is much appreciated. I am sorry that you did not enjoy the Poke Bowl and that your felt our wines were expensive. Our house wine in a carafe starts off at R35, this gives you 250 ml. So you must have ordered one of our more expensive wines. We only mark up our wines 100% unlike a lot of hotels who can put their wines up as high as 300% from purchase price. Our Poke Bowls are quite unique and have proved very popular so for the time being we will keep them on the menu. Just thought I should give some feedback! We do hope that we see you again and that the experience is different. Kind regards Richard Bates

We stayed with our children and some family at the hotel. Staff was friendly and help full. We had a great massage at the spa and spend some time at the swimming pool.
We had dinner with family and some friends. Food and service were great. Breakfast also very good. We had a grea

In your Spa do have massage parlour ,if you do have is it included in the price .
Hi, I don't think massages are included in the price. You need to pay this separately. When we booked the self catering chalet we did have free access to gym, heated indoor pool, sauna, steam-room and flotation pool.
