Fordoun is located within a few minutes off the N3 highway near Nottingham Road in the heart of the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Situated in the green pastures of a working farm, which has a history dating back to the 1800s. The original buildings and farmyard have been artistically and beautifully renovated into the hotel rooms, walkways, gardens, conference centre and restaurant, whilst the spa is unique in that it is built within what was a large dairy. Since its opening in 2005 not a year has gone by without Fordoun winning an international or South African award for excellence.
The hotel comprises 22 luxurious, individually appointed double suites with private verandas, under floor heating and dream bathrooms, each with bath and shower, and a dressing area. The New Mountain View Suites boast panoramic views of the entire Drakensberg range.
Because Fordoun is a family owned and managed hotel and estate, it has a strong ethos of personalized hospitality. From your special welcome by a Zulu concierge for whom Fordoun is home, to the gardener who greets you as you pass, to the ‘bed time stories’, written by the owner, which will be on your pillow every night, you will feel that special ingredient that draws back.
