Hartford House

The Home of Good Conversation, Fine Wine and Classic Horses.

Award-winning hotel and restaurant situated at Summerhill Stud on the picturesque KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Meander, South Africa.

Suite 14 - Inkanyezi (Morning Star)

Named after after the “Evening Star”, our Zulu tradesmen have mimicked their traditional rondavel style in a creation of splendidly carved teak columns, clay rendering and farm-harvested thatch with its own pool metres from the tranquillity of abundant waters.  Dusk and dawn are frequently attended by the alarm call of a Reedbuck or the haunting cry of a Jackal.

First choice retreat of record-breaking Springbok rugby coach, Nick Mallett and his wife, Jane, whose favourite piece is the 1820s convent linen press.
