The view of mountains from the spacious bedroom was spectacular and the accommodation was better than we expected. the big disappointment was from the bar / kitchen - we thought we would "eat in" but they did not have any sugar free drinks available and only 1 bottle of cold white wine which was not to our liking and the...

This hotel served its purpose for a family on 8 over a long weekend. Yes the hotels needs lots of TLC but it is super kid friendly which helps the parents relax. Friendly bar, service not so great, no pool loungers or furniture available (unlike the pictures). Beds comfortable and rooms clean. As long as you expect nothing fancy your...

We stayed overnight at this Hotel which was very comfortable. The room was very pleasant and very clean and we had a lovely view of the lush hills. The pub and restaurant took care of our thirst and hunger, and we enjoyed a buffet breakfast the next morning. This is our second stay there and a very nice convenient location...

We stayed at this hotel a year ago, and it was very run down, the curtains in the bedroom didn't even come down to the floor, bed was very worn out and dipped in the middle. Not a good nights sleep at all. Supper was not a pleasant experience, This hotel is in need of a serious upgrade, actually needs...

Dear Mrs Mottershead We find it a bit unfair that you have gone onto Tripadvisor to complain about our hotel, when you stated that you stayed here last year April. However, on our system you stayed at our hotel on the 11th and 12th October 2015, nearly two years ago and not last year. Numerous changes and upgrades have occurred...

Check in was very frustrating as it took them 15 minutes to find out if the room was ready. When we got into the room we went out onto the balcony and were amazed at the views. The room needs plenty of upgrading and everything is very tired. The thing we did not like was that below us we had...

Dear Mr/s Marshall On behalf of Staff and Management of The Far Hills Hotel, please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay with us. The party that was held on the saturday night, was a last minute booking as their original place had a problem. Rest assured your comments have been forwarded to the appropriate...

The Far Hills Hotel is off the N2 on your way to Knysna. Breathtaking surroundings as far as the eye can see. If you like tranquillity then this is the place to be. The swimming pool is close to the rooms and breakfast area surrounded by rolling lawns and a lush garden. I agree the hotel had an old worldly...

Stayed over the weekend on a special "Daddys Deals". Rooms are basic but clean. The view is stunning. Breakfast was good and the staff are friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to help. We will definitly go back..

Horrible. The people working are cocky and unfriendly, rooms are filled with all sorts of bugs and beatles and just a dirty feeling in general, strongly recommend they don't allow anyone to come to their accommodation before changing EVERYTHING, including staff.

Having booked online, on arrival, there was no sign of our reservation! The shower door did not close properly. There was the remnant of a soap dispenser on the wall of the shower which I had to be careful not to scrape myself against. At breakfast we asked for butter instead of the margarine on the table and were told...

Our delux room was dark and dingy with bugs and moths all over. The sheet on the bed had holes that we could put our fist through. All this for the special price of R950.00 for the night. Will not be staying there again.

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
