We stayed at the Far Hills hotel for 4 nights. Our visit was wonderful. The staff we all very pleasant and our room was lovely. Breakfast was great and the service from Johan and Douglas was very welcoming. Will definitely visit Far Hills again.

Was a little upset that @ 15h30 room was not ready & they market you can book in from 14h00 then @ 16h00 got allocated another room. Room was neat & clean with amazing view from the second floor balcony. Hotel does need some maintenance & painting.

What a lovely setting and atmosphere Far Hills has. Unfortunately there are many flaws that need to be sorted out and hopefully the new management will be able to do justthat. Our room was lovely but the view on the Outeniqua mountains from the little balcony was almost totally obscured by the overgrown garden. Breakfast was an ordeal, waiting for... More

However the new management (in particular Rocco) went through allot of effort to resolve the situation. There are still many flaws at Far Hills but the management commitment is there and sure they might be able... More

We arrived there and everybody was friendly. They showed us the room and we were happy with it. After a while we noticed certain issues with the room like spider webs and the tv wasnt working etc. It was advertised on their website that they had braai spots and when we got there with raw meat we were told that...

Lovely looking hotel, nice rooms, lovely pub but that is where it ends. Although they are in the process of renovations. Our room needed much to be repaired and I sent them an email which they saw to the problems for the second night. Don't watch TV in the room as reception very poor. We had dinner, the first night,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Touch the Earth / Feel at Home. Far Hills offers a departure from the typical hotel. We believe in warmth, family and comfort in a stylish but unpretentious setting. We encourage our guests to absorb the tranquillity of the environment by lounging next to the pool, relaxing on the deck in the shade of the 100 year-old oak tree, listening to the silence of the mountain in a garden gazebo or having a drink in front of a blazing fire in winter. ... more   less
