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.

We chose the Pumphouse on the dam which was absolutely stunning with incredible views. Sandra, was the perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble.

Such a delightful little cottage and was so divine exploring the Elgin area during the day... Unfortunately it wasn't yet hot enough for us to make use of the dam, but we'll be back in the summer!! And that bathtub was pure indulgence!
