We have stayed at this hotel a few times. Very friendly staff, nice surroundings and spacious, clean rooms. Supper at the restaurant was a dissapointment, over priced and not good. Bread heated to near boiling point in a microwave before being served. Vegetable curry seemed like some leftover veg thrown together in a spicy sauce for R100. Aubergine and lentil...

Dear Tracy Thanks for your feedback, I am really disappointed with your experience in the restaurant thanks for bringing it to our attention, we certainly don’t want guests looking elsewhere to be fed so it is rather disturbing, and pertinent that it gets our attention. The WiFi unfortunately is unstable and we are reliant on it being brought wirelessly to...

We spent three wonderful nights at Fordoun for a family weekend away. As we were travelling with our son (4 years) we chose one of the superior rooms for extra space and weren't disappointed. Our spacious room was beautifully decorated, well appointed and had an unbelievable view of the Drakensberg. My mum and brother each stayed in one of the...

We loved this place. Our room/suite was absolutely stunning.Loved my own little personal library, the underfloor heating in the huge dressing room and bathroom, the huge shower plus outside shower and the view. The service we received was great - from reception to the concierge to the waiters - infact everyone we came in contact with. We even met the...

We stayed in the self catering accomodation. It was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities one would require for self catering. Perfect to meander along the MIdlands. Accomodation was clean and had a fireplace for those cold days. Go for breakfast to Blueberry cafe opposite the accomodation. Didn't have time for any spa treatments. A place we would love...

Thanks so much for your comments. We will keep in mind the bar times and we definitely have underfloor heating in our rooms to keep our guests warm during the chilly midlands winters. I will double check your room's heating facilities with our housekeeper and apologise that you were cold.

We stayed for four nights and loved the rooms, so spacious and the underfloor heating is a real luxury in winter. The restaurant is great with home made bread each day. The welcome was lovely with a glass of fizz in front of the fire and all the staff were so helpful and lovely. We booked several spa treatments and...

Winters spa day with friends.... All 3 of us enjoyed our treatments very much. Our therapists were very friendly and professional, and added to a lovely relaxing outing. The rooms were lovely and warm, cosy and clean. Would happily visit again

Everything was great, the rooms, the food the service. We even got a short story on our bed every night to read before turning in. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a relaxing stay in the Midlands.
