We stayed at Far Hills for a little under a week and the entire experience was totally ridiculous for the standard they set themselves! It really does have beautiful scenery and the food and atmosphere is quite nice. But one thing that is just INEXCUSABLE was the water. In the middle of winter there was ZERO hot water! We had...

Thank-you for your review. We have since your visit changed our linen, and bought new heaters for all of our rooms. Our housekeeping only changes the linen every second day for all our stay-over rooms, unless the guest does request their linen to be changed daily. Towels are replaced daily for all stay-overs at our hotel. We sincerely apologise that...

We spent four days at Far Hills Country Hotel on the 6-10th of July 2015. What a great family experience!! This is an excellent hotel for business travellers and families alike - and our two kids enjoyed the facilities thoroughly (especially the outdoor pool table!). They quickly felt at home, safe and free to roam around the complex playing with...

We over-nighted in this hotel on our way from Cape Town to PE. It is just off the N2 between George and Wilderness and as such is very convenient. The site and buildings are lovely - set in spacious gardens. There is a main building with a lounge, pub, diningroom - all with fire places and a cosy atmosphere and...

Our family spent 4 nights at this hotel with friends. The price was good for what is offered. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfasts good. The views from our room were beautiful across the mountains. The hotel in general is a little tired and in need of an upgrade. The water in the bathrooms was not always...

I hadn't been to this hotel for many years -- previous time was when it was famous for its strawberries and cream! I had heard it had got a bit tatty so wasn't expecting too much. However, it has been revamped and I was pleasantly surprised by the result. Our room had a lovely view of the hill and mountain...

Bad from start to finish. The staff at reception were completely uninterested. The room size was fair but the heater (fireplace) didnt work- when we asked if we could move to a room where it does work we were told that none of them work and they were in the process of being fixed (yea right!), towels were not replaced,...

We stayed there during the week and had to find new accommodation because of the poor service and terrible living quarters. They were so unprofessional during our stay. We didn't even receive towels upon arrival and there was not any fitted sheets on the beds. The advertisement of Far Hills is an misreprentation of how things really are. The bedding...

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
