Our Useful Features & Services

Fern Hill Hotel is perfectly situated just off the N3 highway from Durban to Johannesburg. It is an ideal stop-over destination well within an hour from the beach, the Drakensberg mountains, a game reserve, bushman paintings and the historical battlefields. It is ideally situated for a tourist visiting the country as truly South African experiences are to be found close by.

Established restaurateurs and hoteliers, Gion and Karen Poltera, will ensure your stay is an unforgettable one. You will see why Fern Hill Hotel enjoys the accolade of having hosted Nelson Mandela when he visited and was awarded the freedom of Howick.

What started off as a small hotel, with only six bedrooms, a small bar, restaurant and conference room, has developed to great proportions. Today it boasts twenty-seven climate controlled bedrooms, all en-suite, as well as a host of public rooms. The hotel has three conference rooms, two award-winning restaurants, two bars, a pizzeria & a fully accredited training college for students wishing to develop their skills in the industry.

The hotel is set in twenty-five acres of park-like grounds, with water features, a gazebo, swimming pool, tennis court, volley ball court and braai/barbeque area.

Whether you wish to wine and dine or stay with us for a few nights, the staff at Fern Hill will ensure that your stay is a memorable one. We offer the best service in the Midlands as well as the most popular Sunday Carvery!

The Fern Hill Hotel Training College offers courses in both Hotel Management and Professional Cookery for those wishing to begin a career in the hospitality industry. The hotel school offers full board and lodging for the year and on completion, students are awarded with internationally recognised and fully accredited THETA qualifications as well as Fern Hill Hotel certificates.
