No wifi in rooms, hotel very run down, dinner left much to be desired. The staff were lovely though & very helpful. It could be such a great place as it is perfectly situated for exploring the garden route, but unfortunately it needs a serious revamp.

Avoid at all cost
Far Hills "Hotel" (I have stayed in better school boarding houses) is an absolute dump and I cannot recommend, strongly enough, that everybody that calls themselves human beings, AVOIDS this place at all costs. The room was dark (only 1 light at the entrance) and the television did not work and there wasn't even a TV remote control. The toilet was leaking and the underside of the seat was "caked" with old dirt (and who knows what else). There were loose, open wires hanging out of the wall and several different wires were connected to 1 plug. This is not safe and this place should be shut down as it is a fire hazard. I asked for another room, but was told they were full and that they would refund my money. The "management" were not very accommodating or understanding that we had just driven all the way from Cape Town and were tired.I took my refund, my wife, and drove as fast as I could to the Town Lodge at George Mall, where we had the most amazing experience. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would rate this place (I hesitate to call it an hotel) a NEGATIVE 10 (-10)

Avoid - much better choices out there for the cost
Big plus of this hotel are the fabulous views. The rest, unfortunately, is decidedly average. The scarcely functional TV, the very limited wifi, the dated decor, the stained carpets, the non-existent room facilities of any kind (no fridge, no cutlery, not even any tea) and the rubbishy food that doesn't match the menu descriptions was topped off during our stay by waking up to no running water and no toilet facilities. It turned out the whole hotel had no water - and there followed an odd stand off between the local municipality water providers and hotel managers. Over a bemused hour I watched as hotel managers claimed one minute there were engineers on the way to fix the problem, while others denied this; one manager even walked passed me muttering that the water providers had cut off the water supply because of unpaid bills (!), a situation I would not normally believe but the shabbiness of the rest of the hotel made it quite believable. While the majority of staff tried their best to calm and show understanding towards understandably unhappy guests, I also watched with amazement as one hotel manager unbelievably rounded on one guest for complaining as it was, apparently, not the hotel's fault but the water company. Avoid, like the plague. There are far better options out there.

Breath Taking
We went for a 3 day business trip to George, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel. Rooms were clean comfortable. The setting breath taking and the staff friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend.
