What an absolute amazing evening this was! We had our Christmas dinner at the Far Hills Country Hotel. I must say it takes a lot to impress me and tonight I was blown away.

Me and my boyfriends main goal was to retreat and relax and we were satisfied. Extremely friendly staff and one very skilled and friendly barman. Beautiful view and good food.

Stayed at Far Hills for 3 nights for a long weekend getaway. What a disappointment... the setting is beautiful and has potential but very little effort seems to be made with regard to comfort and detail. The bedding was old and stained as well as the towels, which even had holes in! There was a frog and various insects in... More

A couple of years ago I had an amazing breakfast at Far Hills and it really was worth the drive, sadly this is not the case any longer. The omelet was a sad little affair with zero thought gone into it. The other breakfast was a 2.5cm piece of wors, one measly strip of under cooked bacon, "Chefs" potatoes and... More

The rooms are comfortable, The only think lacking was Wi-Fi ( it was due to getting fixed) which gave us time to switch off our phones. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were good as well. The view was spectacular

We stayed at the hotel with a Daddy's Deal voucher and if I read the other reviews our experience was the opposite. The staff was so friendly. We travelled with our 5 year old son. The first night they made pizzas for dinner. They allowed him to sit on a high chair to watch how they make the pizzas. The... More

The staff were fabulous. Friendly and helpful and full of humour. 4 star accommodation? Missing shower door. Gas fire place that is "only for show" when temperatures are 14 degrees. Holes in grey (was once white) towels. Complimentary coffee/tea was not replenished. No shower cap. No extractor fan in bathroom. No phone in room. Patio never cleaned and old cigarette... More

I had bought the Daddy's Deal voucher for R699 for 3 nights including breakfast. Well and I thought it was really hard to believe that you get 3 nights including breakfast for that price.

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
