8/10 Very good

Just a little tricky getting to the rooms as the paving is uneven.

8/10 Very good

Truly awesome surroundings in a picturesque part of Western Cape. Very lush greenery, quiet retreat not far from shopping malls, mountains, the sea and even reptile park! Bedroom and bathroom sizes are the biggest I have ever seen. Lots of sockets for gadgets, thoughtful torch in case of power cuts, swimming pool and space to play around at the back! I hope to return for longer!

2/10 Poor

Far hills is far from a great lodge. Outdated
The hotel has so much potential yet it misses the mark. The main room door looks like someone tried to break in . The patio door didn't lock. Outdated decor. Very poor tv signal. Paint drippings on the bath and toilet. Carpets need a good clean. Not worth the spend.

10/10 Exceptional

Far Hills Hotel
Huge comfortable suite room with balcony and view. Large bathroom with bath and shower. Room has fridge, coffee facilities, tv with choice of channels. Rooms feel private and safe. Bar Restaurant sold excellent bottle of wine at give-away price. Our included breakfast had massive choice. We had the full cooked farmhouse, and then I also had the fruit and yogurt etc because it looked delicious. Hotel easy to find (well sign-posted). Highly recommended. It's great to book something at a good price on ebookers, and arrive and find such a great hotel. Exceeded our expectations.

2/10 Poor

I cannot believe that this hotel was advertised as a 4 star hotel with very deseptive photos. Ratings agency should do their jobs properly.
