Visited this hotel en-route to the Eastern Cape. Was attracted by the special offer of only R 360 for 3 (2 adults and child) for b&b - during school holiday! Originally booked the cheapest room, but when we got there we discovered we were upgraded. Hotel reminds of an old ski lodge. We had a large room, gas fireplace and enormous bed. Although not brand new the room was spotless. Breakfast basic buffet with fruit, juice, cereal and few hot options. Be aware - skip the breakfast rush - we ordered omelet, but was told it was impossible as there were only two staff members and many guests. Got some great fried eggs instead! Great stay over option if you do not want to pay the exorbitant prices some of the other institutions charge in the area.
Last tip - we booked through an internet booking site. Our bill at the hotel was more than charged on the booking form, they however immediately corrected this once we pointed this out.
- 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
