From start to finish our stay was one big pleasant surprise. The location is stunning and our hosts so friendly. The view from the deck is peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed the abundance of bird life and proximity to Wildernis

A little below expectations and needing some updating in the bathrooms and woodwork but a really lovely spot in the hills above Wilderness - which makes it perfect to visit places of interest or just to enjoy the surroundings. Beware the odd woodcutter buzzing though!

We had a wonderful stay in Garden Cottage 1! It was very private and immaculately clean. Tony was an excellent host and provided invaluable advice regarding tourist attractions and restaurants. Candice the Basset also made us feel very welcome! The breakfast is a must have. We will definitely stay at Hildesheim again with future visits to Wilderness!

Amazing Hosts... brilliant breakfast, home made preserves and rusks and care taken to cook as ordered for breakfast. Beautiful scenic views from the pool overlooking farmlands, an abundance of bird life in the garden... Knysna Loerie (Turaco) visit the garden to eat breakfast and dinner in front of guests

We arrived to a very warm and personal welcome by Tony and Vanessa. We were shown to Garden Cottage 1 in a perfect setting overlooking lush lawns and trees with the Outeniqua Mountains forming a perfect background. Once inside we found ourselves surrounded by luxury ! The accommodation was spotlessly pristine, the bed was kingsize with designer bedlinen and most... More

Dear Anne and Brian Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your kind comments. Candice certainly misses you, we had a 3 day gap before the next guests arrived in the cottage and she went visiting (looking for you) everyday. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to the Garden Route. Kind regards... More

Stayed at Hildesheim twice in a 10 day period. The reviews were great and that's shy we chose it. First occasion in the smaller self catering unit. The unit was clean and the bathroom was acceptable however slightly dated. The patio furniture needs a coat of paint but as it was raining slightly so this did not disturb us as... More

Stayed at Hildesheim for 5 nights. Was very peaceful and relaxing! Great hosts and breakfast each day! The lodge is located in a wonderful location, very close to many attractions in the area. Would love to go back sometime!

My family enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was private and my kids could be themselves without disturbing other guests. Hildesheim is in Hoekwil on the mountain and has amazing views of the surroundings. Hildesheim is a little bit old, but we truly enjoyed our stay.
