Jeannine and her husband were amazing hosts whilst we were staying at their guesthouse. Our rooms were splendid with one room even featuring a fireplace in the room. Beautifully decorated and the surroundings are absolutely stunning. Jeannine helped us with great travel tips and they even hosted a great South African braai for me and my friends... Cannot imagine a...

My husband and I wanted a weekend away Johannesburg in the Berg. Whilst screening hotels on Trip Advisor I came across the serene and beautiful Elgin Guesthouse. I called the owner, as i realised that the location was further than we had planned, however as the guesthouse looked appealing (on a farm) we thought we'd explore this as a new...

When we drove up to the guesthouse, the view was lovely. We were welcomed by a helper who showed us to our room.... it was stunning. However, when we woke up for breakfast the next morning, no one came to help us or tell us where breakfast was. We hung around for 45minutes after the arranged time that we discussed...

We made a bit of a last-minute booking and ended up at Elgin. We were welcomed some 30 mins later in a beautiful setting with views of the mountains and the dairy farm. The complimentary sherry was an added bonus. The only thing that could've been improved was some more involvement from the owners. We did see the owner shortly,...

There's really nothing we disliked at Elgin. We loved the friendly staff and helpful manager. We got there very late around midnight and they had complimentary sherry for us and a warm room. The breakfast was good. The views as well. It was a welcomed quiet break from the city.

Elgin is a little piece of heaven, the rooms are very comfortable and were wonderfully heated for the chilly winter's evening. This is a working farm and even though they were busy with daily farming activities and calving, they kindly went out of their way to show the children around and show then the newly born calves etc. Breakfast was...

Owners only glimpsed for a few seconds during three nights stay- not very welcoming. First cottage was dirty with spiders webs. Moved to another- slightly better. Breakfast excellent provided by servants. Lovely location. Would not return.

If you are looking for a truely relaxing weekend, Elgin Farm is the place to go. Very comfortable accommodation from the electrical blankets, heated flooring, spa bath, fire places to the excellent breakfast. We had dinner at a different restaurant in the area, selected from a list of recommendation provided by the owners, and had a good meal every night....

We really enjoyed our short stay in this lovely place! The room was in a little cottage next to the main house, beautifully decorated, with a very nice view and the cows coming nearly to your window in the morning.. Breakfast was excellent too. Already the drive to Underberg is very scenic. We were really sad that we could not...

Elgin is a working farm plus B&B. It is located in a beautiful region and is a good place from which to explore the surrounding mountains and Sani Pass. The rooms are clean and well kept. The only problem was the tv in our room did not work, but other than that, the stay went without any problems. Breakfast is...
