Great stay at Hilltop, while on second honeymoon!! The 270 degree view from the house is stunning, 800 ft up looking over Wilderness, the mountains and the sea. Beautiful guest house and garden and pool. Very attractive bedroom. Nature trail down through the bush below the house leads to further views. Very well looked after by the host Heny.

I do no often write reviews however I received very inflexible, unfriendly service from the lodges managers/owners while traveling on business, I can easily say they ruined the experience for myself and they do not deserve near a 4 star status. From most reviews you will see the main compliment is the location and views with "nice management" however the... More

Where do I start with my awful experience at Hilltop 4 Star Country Lodge.... The setting is magnificent with the most amazing view with friendly staff but that is precisely where it stops. The owners have a terrible attitude. I travelled with my twins who are two and a half, adopted and black and my Au Pair. We are frequent... More

We stayed here for a short break to George. The views over the coastline from Wilderness towards Plettenberg Bay were absolutely magnificent. The sunrise from the comfort of our bed was one of the best experiences on the holiday. The service was very personal and Hennie made sure our every need was taken care of. We just wish we could...

This accommodation was outstanding, especially given the cost - the same in England would have cost as least twice, if not three times as much. The views were amazing, almost unbelievable - never seen better, anywhere. The couple who own the property, Hennie and Magda were exceptional in their hospitality and the breakfasts were fantastic- described as continental, but the... More

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.
