“A Night at South Hill”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the spacious and well-equipped Guest House, which we had to ourselves, for one night. We were on our way home to Cape Town and decided to find out what South Hill had to offer. The winemaker made us very welcome and showed us the Guest House and allowed us to stay at a reduced rate as they do not currently have a Chef. As there are several places closeby, including 2 Farm Stalls, at which we could purchase food items as well as restaurants, we were happy to stay and fend for ourselves. South Hill is situated in the Elgin Valley with views of the surrounding valley and hills. It has a large communal lounge, kitchen and 4 ensuite rooms downstairs and a large upstairs area suitable for a small family.Ideal place for a family group to spend relaxing time with all modern conveniences including a pool and braai area.

Very spacious villa in the middle of vineyards, everything is high standard. The rooms are super comfortable, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, the garden is very well kept and the owners were always willing to help. Very quiet place, would also be perfect to rent for a weekend with friends, but it's also big enough if you share it with strangers. The restaurant next door looks amazing, make sure it is open when you stay there.
Breakfast was served in the lounge and was very good.
