This was a very odd mixed bag, that could be so easily sorted. The location is stunning, our room had the most beautiful view of the hills and stunning gardens. The room was large and had a really comfy bed, bathroom was a little basic and needed rennovating, but it was OK. No mini-bar which was a shame. Overall a nice room.
The staff were very nice indeed - helpful and friendly. The grounds were beautiful, and the swimming pool area was very nice but needs to be heated!
The disappointing elements for me were:
1. The amazing shop in reception was closed the WHOLE time we were there! It was saturday, I would have loved to have bought something.
2. The bar had a great cocktail menu, but when I tried to order one they only actually had ingredients for ONE on the list!
3. The restaurants were a disaster - there was bar food, a japanese sushi bar which you couldn't get into, and a 'fine dining' restaurant which was a buffet. I don't like buffets at all, I like to sit down and have food brought to me as I think that is far more relaxing, and I couldn't believe the only option was a buffet. We ate in the bar in the end and had a very nice bottle of wine, very very mediocre food, and again they only had 2 puddings available on their long pudding menu.
So overall I left with a feeling of disappointment which was a shame, because this place could be really great.

- 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
