Stayed for three nights. The room was spacious with all the modern amenities.The room offered excellent and beautiful view of the complete town and the lagoon. The apartments though situated in a quiet neighborhood, are very near to the town centre and waterfront. Highly recommended for short/ long duration stay.

Hillview Self Catering apartments is a very modern and spacious apartment in a quite neighborhood within a 5 min drive to the waterfront. We stayed at Hillview for 2 nights and must confess that we absolutely fell in love with both Kynsna and the apartment. Being on a hill, our apartment offered a great view of the lagoon but it...

The suite had a large Bedroom cum Lounge with fireplace which we used due to cool rainy weather. Kitchen was great & we were able to prepare our own breakfast, etc & balcony with weber was good for doing our... More

Hillview Self-Catering Apartments offers really beautiful, modern and spacious accommodation with a great view on the lagoon. It was too bad we could only enjoy it for just 1 night. We really recommend this place when you plan to spent several days in Knysna.

Very good & quite spacious apartment; close to downtown & all activities. Friendly owner. We could see view only from the living area & not the balcony. Kitchen was clean and overall the the place was very quiet.

What a nice apartment! So bright, clean and comfortable. From the living room we had a great view over Knysna. It is at walking distance from the city, although you need strong legs for the way back. We enjoyed the possibility to cook our own meals. Definitely stay here when visiting Knysna!

We stayed at Hillview as part of our honeymoon whilst in Knysna. The accommodation itself was very reasonably priced, with secure parking and a small pool. We had room 5 which has stunning views of the Knysna Heads. The room had a semi open bathroom (the loo was separate and the bath behind a screen), TV in the bedroom, great... More

We found it tricky to select a place to stay in Knysna and Hillview did not disappoint. Safe parking, a wonderful view, clean apartment, smoothly run - what more could you hope for. Its a fair walk (down a steep hill, which meant up on the way back) into town, but its the price you pay for a clear view... More

We only had one night to enjoy this B & B on the way to Addo but wish we had more time. The units were wonderful, particularly in view of the very reasonable price. We rented three units and they were all lovely. Although we didn't prepare any meals, the units appeared to have all the utensils required including BBQ/Braai.... More

Best value for money we had during our vacation in South Africa. We have stayed at the Hillview on March of 2013 and booked two apartments. Both apartments were immaculate and fully functional and the kitchens were fully equipped to cook a complete meal. The surrounding was quiet and relaxing with a small beautiful pool.
