Very good Guesthouse in the Elgin Valley. The farm is managed by delightful hosts who are happy to help out. There are a number of activities in the area that would satisfy most. The Guesthouse is pretty child friendly too.

The accommodation was excellent, large rooms & very comfortable beds. Lovely lounge area leading onto swimming pool with beautiful views of the vineyards & mountains. We did the 3.2km walk, which I really enjoyed. Breakfast was excellent and they give you a choice. Very friendly staff By far one of the best places I have stayed at

We stayed in the guest house for three nights - what a fantastic experience! The rooms were perfect, garden and pool for kids just what the hot weather needed! We will definitely be back. Amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

Had a great stay at South Hill. The visit was unplanned, needed a stopover on route to Mosselbay. The staff was very hospitable and open. Sarah is a fantastic host, well engaged and warm. We would definitely go back again.

We stayed at South Hill at both The Pump house and the Guest House for our wedding and honeymoon nights. The rooms are excellent, huge beds, amazing bathtubs! The views are incredible and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only qualms I have were there were a few beetles in the bed, but this is to be expected...

South Hill is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing break. Sandy and Kevin make you feel very welcome and their staff are always friendly and welcoming. Their guest house is beautiful and food in the restaurant, accompanied by their wines is a must.
