“Birdwatcher's Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2009

Stumbled upon this beautiful guest house quietly located in the hills above Wilderness but less than 10 minutes from all facilities. Jo'burg couple Tony and Vanessa offer a very warm welcome and unabtrusive service. Great location if you appreciate peace and tranquility as well as great birdwatching from your deck and in the beautiful garden with its extensive views to the mountains beyond.

We arrived sunday late and the host was waiting for us already, to show us our room and help with the bags. a friendly and warm person indeed. we were there for our honeymoon and we really enjoyed the service we got, breakfast, warm and they were flexible with breakfast serving times.
I loved the extend they went to to make our honeymoon suite romantic :-) The room's cleanliness as well. The location of the hotel was perfect, cos we needed a quiet place and yet still close to places where we'd go for fun. there's bird watching as well.

We stayed at Hildesheim in January 2009 after spending several days in Capetown. We thoroughly enjoyed the caring but unobtrusive service provided to us by Tony and Vanessa. Our teenage son was similarly impressed and we all agreed we will return one day. The Guest House is located in an ideal position with beautiful rural views and nearby scenic walks, quiet environment but in proximity to shops, restaurants, beaches and many other attractions.

Finding Hidesheim is easy and takes you into a beautiful part of Wilderness where the accomodation is clean and homely with everything you would need for a comfortable stay available. The owners go out of their way to accomodate you and are more than happy to share local information about walks, shops, restuarants etc. The area is quiet and has a village feel where everyone is friendly and willing to stop for a chat. Would go back to Hildesheim in a heartbeat.
