Comfortable stay when traveling the Garden Route. The facilities of the hotel are great and the fixtures and fittings in the rooms are very good. Breakfast was an issue during our stay. Due to increased Covid restrictions, staff had to be reduced during this time and that was quite challenging especially as it was over December. Like everyone else, I enjoy value for money and this was the first time I chose not to have the complimentary breakfast that came with our booking on the last morning of a 3 night stay. I would like to return once Covid is over and hopefully, then things return to normal. A hard-working management team will be looking forward to business as usual, I am sure.

Hotel has a country feel with upmarket and stylish twist. It offers peace and tranquility with a range of birds to hear right from your room. Perfect place to unwind and take a break from city life. If you feel more sociable it is still for you as it has a perfect bar area with deck overlooking the pool and Outeniqua mountain range. You can dine at night on the deck or inside with three course meal options. Food was beyond expectation and staff is warm and courteous. They tended to our every need. We hope to be back very soon.

The hotel has been closed for about three months for renovations - I mean real renovations - not just a 'lick of paint'. We had been trying to get in during August and September but eventually were accepted for 4th October (2019) and we were the first guests after renovations (which are still progressing!). Our reception was outstanding - our room with its views was stunning. We made a few suggestions for improvement which we are sure will be implemented. The Hotel was still waiting for some 'fire-safe' certification for its kitchen, so we were offered a simplified menu cooked in a modest 'household' kitchen - the prawns were delicious and our breakfast very much up-to-standard. We will return!

We've stayed at The Far Hills many times, over the years, and have always been delighted by the warm welcome and friendliness of the staff! The view from the deck must be one of the most stunning views a hotel could have! Great bar service and excellent food make for a very comfortable and pleasant experience. Lusanda is always a star, anticipating our every need, efficient and friendly, as well as professional. We missed Gift on our latest visit, sadly, but also an absolute star. I'd love to give the Far Hills five stars, and the only reason I haven't is because, together with a rather 'tired' feel to the hotel overall (which is not a major problem for us, at all), it would be wonderful if the bedding situation could be improved! Mattress protectors, quality sheets, new pillows, just new, and better quality bed linen overall, would make all the difference to this beautiful place. The rooms are a generous size, with balconies or private patios, and outdoor chairs to enjoy the stunning view, as well as in-room seating. Large bathrooms could also do with a revamp and it would be great if this is done eventually. Of course, the fabulously cheap rates should, in our humble opinion, be higher, with these few improvements put into play! As guest house owners ourselves, for the last five years, we understand the exorbitant costs involved in maintaining quality guest accommodation, but with a few improvements we believe the Far Hills would be one of, if not the, top hotel in the area! As an author, I love to observe and pay attention to detail, wherever I am, and maybe I'll pay homage to the Far Hills in one of my books! Watch this space! Thanks for a wonderful stay Far Hills and wishing you success as you move forward! Linzi Carlisle

The stay at the hotel was okay. The swimming pool was a winner but unfortunately the cleanliness was lacking. The only staff member that stood out was the lady that served breakfast. The rooms could do with a little bit of updating and cleaning (saw old sweets on the floor).
