Absolutely loved A Hilltop Country Retreat Very well appointed rooms with every need taken care of.

Beautiful accommodation. They were extremely welcoming and even upgraded us into rooms with fires as they were worried about us during a cold spell. Thank you so much. Would love to come back for a longer stay.

Very Good8.0
Nice cosy cottage stay
Got a free room upgrade to a family suite. A little too big as there was only 2 of us, but it was nice to have a fireplace.

Wonderful lodge with beautiful views
This little find was perfect for our night stay. The room was so lovely and had all the little touches to make our stay perfect. It was a little cold but the open fire made it wonderful and cosy. On our arrival we popped to the store and had a bbq as all the equipment is there for your use. The internet was possibly the best we had in SA on our trip. I cannot fault this place it’s a perfect little lodge. One thing to note is that if you go for bed and breakfast then you have to make the breakfast yourself and they will just pop the items in your fridge.

Nice size room but with issues.
After a prompt and pleasant check in where we were told we'd been upgraded to a deluxe room, we were shown to a nice, large, well appointed room. However, on the evening of our stay, the WiFi didn't work and the staff member we spoke to couldn't resolve it. Then later the cable TV went down also. The toilet cistern kept sticking, so I had to deal with that each time we flushed. The shower didn't drain well which meant you showered with several inches of water around your feet. The roof to the room was steel, not unusual in S.A but it meant we were awoken at 06-30 ish by birds running across the roof and then the roof contracting as the sun heated it up. Also the blinds did very little to keep the light out which again didn't help us sleeping in until a reasonable time. None of these were big deals on there own but we were getting fed up of it by the time we were ready to check out. We would have liked to mention these minor irritations when we left but there was no one in the office when we departed so we just left the key and continued our journey. A shame really as the owner and staff are lovely but a little maintenance is needed.
