Things to do while in the Midlands

Rawdons is an ideal base for any visitor to KwaZulu-Natal. In the heart of the Midlands Meander, only a five minute drive from the N3 highway, Rawdons has easy access to nature trails, local arts and crafts shops, restaurants, the train museum and scenic mountain walks. Many other places of interest and merit are only a short drive from the hotel.

Grab your rod and get your hat, leave your worries behind and direct your feet along the scenic walks of Rawdons Hotel, following The Ale Trail through the extensive estate offering some great dam fly fishing, ending up in the convivial Bierfassl with a frosty tankard of Austrian Draught and a sense that all’s well with the world.

GUEST REVIEWS


Beautiful, Old World and Relaxing are just a few of the adjectives I can use for describing Rawdons. Whenever we are in South Africa visiting family we always spend a few days driving the Midlands Meander.
We wouldn't go to Nottingham Road without at least having lunch at Rawdons. Being able to spend a few nights there is heaven.
