WOW! We have been going to Fordoun for the past 3 years and each time they continue to exceed our expectations. From the staff in the gardens, to the admin staff, spa staff, restaurant staff and so on, they are all extremely friendly, always with a smile on their faces and completely obliging. The spa and treatments are out of this world, the rooms are elegant, homely and beautiful and the food is beyond decadent. We love the experience and the people of Fordoun!

Did not stay or use the spa facilities this visit, only had dinner. Delightfull dinner in a lovely formal setting. Good food, fair service and good wine list. Not cheap, but value for money, consistent with the setting and the ambience. Not much ambience in the bar though, almost as they don't want you to linger there. The lounges, on the other hand were very comfortable.

My partner & I had a memorable experience at Fordoun. Staff friendliness from pre booking and ordering room requirements service to checking out was 5 star. She needed a weekend away and got just that, everything was taken care off. Not too mention the Food was fabulous, Michelin star chef. We will be back.

I often go here to get a massage at the spa. The spa treatments are affordable and really good. I recommend the deep tissue massage. Get there at least half an hour before your appointment so that you can fill in all the required paperwork. What’s nice is that you can have some light refreshments — fruits/muffins and a selection of teas/coffee and juices. After your massage you can go for a steam or sauna or a swim in the indoor pool. So I suggest you pack some board shorts or a swimming costume. Usually, after a massage and a swim we would go to the restaurant for a meal. They have some great meal options-there are vegetarian friendly items on the menu. Alcohol is also served.

Food variety for dinner is limited, especially if you eat veg, chicken and fish only. For 5 star, the accomodation is poor and the prices do not justify it. The spa is fantastic and I think that is the main attraction.

Great stop for a spa and some good food. Beside the spa and bike rental you may need to leave to do more in the midlanda. But if you want to relax this is where you need to go.

What a beautiful place. I booked my weekend away months in advance needing a weekend of relaxation, spoiling myself and quiet. What an experience! From arrival the staff were attentive, professional and friendly. My room was lovely, the food was out of the world and offered something for everyone. The spa… wow. I was in heaven. Thank you to the ladies for spoiling me and especially Andile for my massage. I felt amazing that floatation pool is lovely. I would recommend Fordoun to anyone wanting a weekend of peace, luxury and pampering. And good food. Thank you too all the staff.

Normally my wife n I have the tradition of spending our wedding anniversary with you guys. Unfortunately this year we missed out on that opportunity due to my wife being heavily pregnant. Inspite of this we still decided to make a trip there for her birthday on the 16th of december and for the first time we stayed at the self catering units, and honestly we were not disappointed quite the contrary we were blown away. It is an absolutely wonderful experience. So peaceful and calm and views we didnt know you had (even though its the 4th time we've been there).
I cant recommend this enough to anyone. We cant wait to come back with our little one to enjoy your stunning venue with her too.

Don't be fooled by the Hotel rating and reputation. As far as a spa facility is concerned this is far below average. This is not a world class spa experience if you are a seasoned spa goer. Be warned.

My hubby surprised me with a weekend at your Spa for our Anniversary. We had the most remarkable experience from the awesome Spa treatments to the delectable food served to the friendly and always obliging staff to actually meeting family that own the Spa and learning a bit of the history of the place which I found to be remarkable. I cannot wait to take my daughter for mum and daughter getaway. I will become a regular here. The untouched wilderness and greenery in The Midlands is so appealing to people like us that need to get away from the rat race we face everyday. Jules you were an amazing hostess and we felt special every step of the way… as for The Rasul treatment … well… that was simply everything a couple looking to reconnect need. Thank you Fordoun Hotel & Spa… Please do not change the special way you run this establishment… God Bless

Very beautiful place. Serene. A lovely getaway. However, we found a spot with quite a stench… it seemed to be away from the living quarters though. And the spa seemed to have a wide range of services on offer, however far too expensive for me.
