We spent a night here on the way to Kruger National Park. It is a perfect stopping point between Johannesburg and Kruger, and a great starting point for the Panorama Drive. Everything about the inn was very nice - spacious, clean, and great breakfast. Ane, the new owner, works very hard to make your stay comfortable. He had great recommendations... More

We spent two nights at Hillwatering in April 2014 en route to Kruger National Park. From the minute we arrive Ane and Rhianna took great care of us and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Their local area knowledge was more than helpful and meant we managed to visit all of the local... More

We spent one night in Hillwatering Country House while coming back from Kruger National Park and our experience was awesome. Facility is a luxury country house and owners are extremely helpful, positive and supportive. I find it the main differentiation of this place. I asked extra bed inside of a double room because there was no twin room and they... More

We found this B&B to be lovely. Ane and Rhianna, the owners, were outgoing, helpful and took great pride in their property. The breakfast was wonderful and the location and views of the mountains and waterfalls were beautiful. It was clean and quiet and very cozy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guesthouse, and we plan to stay there next... More

This hotel is run by a very friendly Dutch couple who bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Our room was very large and luxurious with a very large balcony with a view over a lush garden. This was a lovely place to relax after staying in the Kruger National Park which sometimes felt extremely Spartan in its accomodation.

We chose this hotel due to the fact that its on the Panorama route and it advertised itself as having mountain views. Well, it didn't disappoint, the views were spectacular. An ideal base to explore the Panorama route, as well as Kruger Park, this guest house is exceptionally run by its 'new' owners.

From the time you arrive at the guest house, during your stay until the time you leave ... throughout your stay, it feels like home. The owner run and managed bed and breakfast are always willing and able to offer assistance about what or where to look and what to look out for. Would gladly go back any day, great... More

Second time staying here. We stayed in the "Superior Queen Room with Mountain View" (sames as we did 5 years ago), on the second floor. Room is quite spacious with good closet room. Small kitchenette can also be found in the closet containing beverages for purchase (wine, water, etc). Bathroom is attached and quite large. Continuing with the trend, the... More
