A gem in the country
Beautiful location, gorgeous rooms and views but what made the whole thing was the fantastic service. Great facilities, they have made the most of the setting, there is something for everyone. We ate in the Sandeman restaurant where the food was outstanding. It was our first visit but it wont be our last - we were made to feel so welcome. I look forward to returning.

Fantastic Fonab.
Had a fantastic weekend stay at Fonab. We could not fault a thing, staff were very nice, helpful, informative and friendly. The room was spacious enough, comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated l. The location was great for walks and hiking. The food was fantastic in both Sandeman and the Brasserie. Full to the brim both nights. They arranged flowers and a cake for my wife’s birthday, in fact two cakes when there was a logistical issue with the first :-)
