About Hartford House

Renowned for its beautiful decor and one of KwaZulu-Natal's most famous gardens, Hartford House is an absolute spoil. Hartford House offers 14 luxurious suites/rooms. The hospitality is warm, the food is excellent and the surroundings are amazing.

We are only able to accommodate children in certain suites with their parents; garden/pool or lakeside suites. The country lodge offers wedding facilities as well as a vitality centre that offers a range of therapies, body treatments, holistic massages and facials as well as a sauna.

The team at Hartford House has fulfilled both ambitions in the creation of their luxurious country lodge on Summerhill Stud; a showcase for some of the finest thoroughbreds in the southern hemisphere including the priceless stallions of the first family in Dubai.

Spa: The Hartford vitality center offers a range of therapies, body treatments, holistic massages and facials as well as a sauna.

Wedding Venues: South Africa's first-choice wedding venue is arguably the land's favorite romantic hideaway. Historic surrounds, great style and unique ambiance, has seen Hartford "marry" entire generations of the same family.

                                          5 stars does no justice to this special place! Accommodation was comfortable and classy. Dinner and breakfast was world class. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend! !!

                                          For us this was the ultimate! The food and presentation was amazing with a combination of flavours and wine to die for. The rooms were tastefully decorated with all the added extras one could hope for form a highly professional team. We were made welcome from when we first arrived to when we left, with the staff always willing to go the extra mile. The tour around the Stud farm was my dream come true and I now have 100's of photo's of horses to prove it. An experience we will treasure!Thank you and congratulation to Mrs Goss and her team!Kind regardsJoy and ColinIsle of MaNuk

                                          02/03 January 2010 - Our 2nd visit to Hartford House was a delight. We enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful surroundings, particularly having just arrived from busy Durban. We visited the stables and took time 'meeting' the horses.Our Garden Suite was very comfortable with a superb sleigh bed. The welcome drinks and fruit were most appropriate.The Gourmet meal and the talk by Mick Goss were our high-lights. The menu was well balanced and absolutely delicious. The recommended red wine - Kevin Arnold Shiraz - was a knock-out. What more can we say? We look forward to the next time. Many thanks to...
