Our Superior Mountain View Suites are individual units with majestic views of the Drakensberg. Each unit has a king-size bed, separate lounge area, TV and DVD, gas fireplace, dressing-room area, under floor heated bathroom with bath as well as indoor and outdoor showers, private balconies with loungers, air conditioning, tea and coffee-making facilities, a mini bar area, as well as wireless internet. Our Superior Suites overlook lush pastures and rolling hills towards the entire panoramic Drakensberg range. Sunsets over the mountains are spectacular. Our main design criteria when building the Superior Suites was to make the rooms spacious enough to accommodate a bedroom/lounge area. Flat screen TVs sit in their own wall-mounted mirror cupboards for neatness and space. Each room has a gas fireplace for added ambiance and to complement the air-conditioning which is for both heating and cooling. Water is heated by Heat Pumps to save on energy. There is under floor heating in the bathrooms and dressing rooms. There is also an IT corner with desk and connections in each of the dressing rooms. Bathrooms have double basins, bath and shower, plus a novel outdoor shower where one can enjoy the mountain views (but ablute in complete privacy). Like all of the Fordoun suites, each of the new rooms has been thoughtfully decorated by Micheline Bate

Guest Comments

Thoroughly enjoyed the entire establishment in every way.
I was, however, concerned about the casual attitude to checking out! The person involved was very pleasant but much too casual about the numbers. I had to correct her twice to get the account right - both times were in my favour - I could have saved more than R600 had I remained quiet.
I hope the owners have ways and means to audit / check all the calculations done by their reception staff - if not the business is at risk.
