Hartford House


Home of Good Conversation, Fine Wine and Classic Horses

Hartford is the resolution of all South African safaris, the journey’s exclamation point. A retreat from the hubbub where you make sense of a fast life and its details. Hartford stands apart for its authenticity. Its architecture, views, dining, sounds and scents, its horses and its people are all exhilarating surprises, unique to this culture, to Africa.

The truth is, Hartford just happened. A home, and a grand one at that, which grew into a hotel. In so many ways, it’s gained and regained inspiration from the cultures it celebrates. It is life’s exception, a place at the same time comfortable beyond dreams, yet innocent of pretense.

The Restaurant at Hartford House
You can feel the passion at Hartford; any meal here reflects our obsession. We live in one of the planet’s great pantries: a world of rich soils, a wonderful climate and bountiful harvests. “In season” and “local”, are our keys.

Exquisite Weddings & Events
It’s all in the detail! South Africa’s first-choice wedding venue in the land’s favourite romantic hideaway, its historic surrounds, great style and unique ambiance, have seen Hartford “marry” generations of the same family.

Exclusive Tailored Conferences and Executive Meetings
We know the value of a good conference, and we understand the extra dimension a rare venue and slick organisation adds to the event. We’re in business ourselves, and each of the four business disciplines we’re engaged in, is an industry leader.
