This hotel is set in the most exquisite Highveld surroundings, the warm, homely ambience at the Fairlawns is truely “a home away from home, only better’.

We really enjoyed the time we spent at Fairlawns taking time-out to renew our batteries, get our skins to glow and our energies to flow, the spa really helped with this.
