I was emailed 2 days before we were to arrive to be told they don't have space for us anymore??? After a huge fight and wanting to make it our problem they got alternative accommodation for the one evening. The...

We arrived to a warm friendly welcome and was shown to our quaint room in no time. The views from our private balcony was spectacular. We had an amazing time staying here. The staff was professional and extra helpful. The food was superb. Will definitely come here again. Small improvements: Fridge in room and clear channels on the TV.

I arrived yesterday to the lodge with the expectation that it is a well and neat place with all relevant things as shown on their website. Well, this is not true at all - misrepresentation with pictures that hardly reflects the state it is in now and some of things weren't even they way it was on pictures. Place need...

This hotel is well situated and has beautiful views, however, the service was poor and the restaurant was falsely advertised. It is just offers a "pub lunch" type of menu. The rooms were grubby and toiletries, towels and linen, need attention. The TV did not work. Breakfast was standard but lacked attention to detail, i.e. no marmalade, Will not be...

Probably the best view we have had from a Hotel balcony, but the whole hotel was very tired. The staff were very hardworking and attentive. They should not have to be running around looking for a hairdryer that didn't work in a broken socket anyway. Beautiful grounds and setting and good value for money

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
