Such a delightful little cottage and was so divine exploring the Elgin area during the day... Unfortunately it wasn't yet hot enough for us to make use of the dam, but we'll be back in the summer!! And that bathtub was pure indulgence!

Our stay would have been lovely if we had received the correct room key. We were locked out of the house one night in freezing conditions and had to break in since we couldn't find anyone to assist us. We received the housekeeping key by mistake, which meant that housekeeping couldn't get into out room either... But the food, view,...

Our daughter got married at South Hill two weeks ago. The family used the adjacent guesthouse. The facilities are absolutely fantastic. The manor is exquisite, spacious and functional and the view, to die for. Owner Sandra really went out of her way to make all of us feel so special. Can't think of a better venue for a wedding.
