BEST OF SA AWARDS
“The only world class hotel on a world class stud farm in the world”is the well-worn mantra of Hartford House, the fifteen suite boutique hostelry housed in the historic Prime Ministerial homestead on the Summerhill estate.
The horsemen on the property have long prided themselves for their six consecutive Breeder’s titles in the most competitive era in history, yet Hartford House has matched the racehorse nursery stride-for-stride when it comes to accolades. Today, for the second consecutive year, the readers of South Africa’s most popular lifestyle magazine, voted it the Number One restaurant in the House and Leisure / Visa Best of South Africa awards. As competitive as the horse business may be, this one came in an environment covering more than 10,000 local eateries, and in a category which included among its finalists, two World Top Fifty celebrities, La Colombe and The Tasting Room.
The Summerhill team is in awe of its little sister’s home run. We salute you, Head Chef Jackie Cameron, GM Paula Mackenzie and your exceptional band of merry people. Nobody’s worked harder and nobody’s more deserving.
From one Champion team to another, well done!
