We had 4 days in this little piece of paradise and wished we had longer. The views are quite simply stunning from anywhere you go on the property, across the bay to Wilderness and beyond. And if you take the short scenic walk down the hill path you will be rewarded with more spectacular views..and work up an appetite for... More

The stunning views from hilltop lodge cannot fail to soothe and calm. The whole ambience of the lodge is one of peaceful serenity. Breafast is simply delicious, perfectly presented and wholesome good food, the best fresh fruit salad we have had in any of our 10 stays in SA. Hannie is the perfect host, helpful bit unintrusive. The roms are... More

This was our third stay with Hennie and Magda and it just gets better each time. The views are stunning, accommodation great and hospitality superb. Should not be missed if visiting the area. This is the place to stay for peace and tranquility.

We have stayed 6 days over the Christmas period at the Hilltop Country Lodge. It has been the first time in our travelling experience where the the Internet images and information could not live up to the actual article! The view will leave Ernest Hemingway at a loss for words. The owners made us feel right at home and we... More

Typically when one has booked a place where they have never been before, they feel a certain level of anxiety on whether the place will in fact live up to their expectations. We are glad to say that Hilltop exceeded our expectations!! My wife and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for 5 days over the busy new year period.... More

We arrived from Hermanus and had a comfortable and pleasing stay. Our balcony overlooked Victoria Bay and as we sat having braekfast we watched the rollers break along the beach below. We had an enjoyable meal at The Girls in Wilderness. We then moved on top Plettenburg. In hindsight we wished we had stayed at Hilltop and not moved on... More

For sure the most beautiful location on the Garden Route - the view is simply stunning. We spend two nights here, and had a very pleasant experience. Quiet stop over, enclosed parking, safe in the room, welcome sherry awaiting you. Hope to go again one day!

The view has been extensively celebrated here. Not much more to add except that it is amazing. The lodge has been built with a deliberate Colonial atmosphere, even though it is not that old. I'd say the architects hit that one bang on. The gardens surrounding the lodge are equally impressive though and I'd recommend visitors take the time to... More

What a view the most amazing views. Go there you will not be disappointed, the rooms are lovely and the gardens and pool. The breakfast was pretty good too. We went to Victoria Bay the next day and what a lovely place to go to the sufers were very good.

The Hilltop has a great view and the owner is quite nice, but the room was not 5 or even 4 star as they advertise and as other reviews indicate, it is geared towards a 60+, altough, when I am older, this wouldn't suit us. We had no hot water and they said they had to turn it on? We... More
