Situated in a very peaceful area (Hoekwil), about 8km from town. Hosts were friendly and attended to all our needs. Rooms are spacious and beds comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped. Unfortunately no DSTV, only MNET. Will stay again.

My experience was exceptional. My hosts went to every effort to make sure I had the incredible time I did. Wonderful venue, great town, amazing bird life. The location relative to the airport, beach and other sights is super. Also the shop down the road makes the best blue berry cheese cake!!! STUNNING!

We stayed at Hildeshuim for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, excellent service and the lovely neat room. My fiance and I were upgraded to the Honeymoon suite which has a spa bath which was a lovely added extra. Soft gowns and slippers are provided for that extra bit of luxury. The flowers and petals in the room... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful two night stay at Hildesheim. Tony greeted us with some delicious sherry on our arrival, and provided us with great information for places to go and nature to see around Wilderness. The views from our cottage and the rest of the grounds were positively stunning, and such a treat for us New Yorkers.... More

What a lovely unit! Beautiful, clean, peaceful surroundings - just what you need to get away from it all! Everything you need in the kitchen - sometimes you look for a pot/pan and there's nothing - our unit even had two pans!!!There were even welcoming flowers on our beds! Lovely experience!

The owners at Hildesheim are very accommodating and very helpful. If you need anything or have any questions they are more than happy to help you out. It's a beautiful place, I would definitely recommend staying here.

Earlier this month my husband and I stayed at Hildesheim for four nights and we were really pleasantly surprised. When I phoned to check our booking a few weeks ahead of the time Tony gave us pointers about what we need to do before arrival. Tony magically appears when you arrive in the parking lot and offers to assist with... More

We had such a lovely time there. The beds were comfortable, the view from our suite was incredible and Tony was so accommodating. Tony even gave us a few recommendations on places to go walking/hiking. We have added it to the list of places we'd consider for honeymoon.

We were met by a very friendly and helpful Tony (host) who escorted us to the Honeymoon suite - although married for 20 years this lovely room sprinkled with flower petals and a SPA bath put our memories back 20 years. The idyllic pastures, trees and beautiful mountains and the quiet countryside environment and a glass of red wine put... More
