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 stay another day..

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 provided and the guest can choose to eat in the dining room (a small room which can be a bit cramped if there are more than 8 guests) or eat outdoors. In the morning, my city kids had great fun seeing the cows go out to pasture. The place is kids-friendly, with a trampouline and swing.

Room Tip: The rooms further from the dining room has more privacy and better view.

Elgin Farm is certainly one of the best kept secrets when visiting the Drakensberg. The drive up to Underberg is spectacular - great if you love driving. The guesthouse itself is situated on a working diary farm and they invite you to visit the milking that happens every afternoon. The accommodation is comfortable, location is spectacular and the rates are very reasonable. A perfect place for short stay with the family and kids.

Room Tip: Room 1 has a nice lounge and underfloor heating in the bathroom!

We stayed for only one night at Elgin Holiday Farm, but loved it. The rooms are large, extremely comfortable and have beautiful views from their own little terraces. This is a working dairyfarm, and it was fun to see the cows heading out in the morning by our window! The breakfast is wonderful and the hostess very helpful. What is more, it is a relatively short drive (less than three hours) from Durban International Airport, so makes a good first stop for weary travellers, which we were. Highly recommended.
