We stayed at far hills for two nights and the service was so poor that we decided to look for other accommodation in George. There were no fitted sheets on the bed, no towels were given to us upon arival or even during our stay. The pipes leaked in our bathroom and the staff didn't even dry our bathrooms floors.... More

The best of this place was the bar area, nice and cozy and relatively cheap. Excellent sevice, and excellent staff. But I think they carry a heavy load trying to keep this place up. We made a last minute booking for two nights, breakfast included, cooked to your own choice which was great! Spacious room with TV. (poor quality) The... More

Beautiful Hotel tucked away and yet central to George and Knysna. Food is excellent as is the utter peace and quiet. Staff is friendly and very eager to help. Has it's own pub with a nice wood burning fireplace. George Mall about 10-15 minutes away with excellent restaurants and coffee shops.

We booked two rooms and both rooms had a stale smell. Both rooms need new bedding. The single bed in both rooms were uncomfortable. The service at the hotel is five star. The staff was ever willing to help. Breakfast was very good.

We stayed for 1 night on the way to Oudtshoorn. We had a family room so had a view of the garden and the mountain. The room was quite large, although a little dated. The room did have a small bar fridge. There was a pool and a small children's play area which we did not use as we arrived... More

When we drove up to Far Hills Hotel we were very impressed at the regal frontage. However the room was definitely in need of a refurbishment. They have a decent size pool but fellow guests had to clean it before they could use it. The bar closed at 10.30 even though many guests wanted to stay on. Staff were all... More

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
