Hildesheim Guest House
Ranked #9 of 57 Wilderness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 25, 2011

We have taken more than a carrot cupcake recipe home with us . . . . . memories of a wonderful stay.

We have stayed in many guest houses across the country, but have never experienced the Hildesheim hospitality. Thank you Tony & Vanessa for making our stay special.

We can recommend the unit we stayed in - it overlooks the pool area with a breathtaking view of the mountains in the background. What a beautiful view.

Vanessa, your tasteful meals and the special spoils with fresh flowers out your garden with the muffins and breakfast in a bottle made us feel very special.

Your hospitality will be remembered and assure you the next time we are in the area, Hildesheim will be our first choice and number 1 Stop.

We were privileged to have met you and will always remember the extra mile you went to make our stay special.

Thank you Tony and Vanessa

What a wonderful experience. We received a warm and friendly reception from Tony and Vanessa. The service was perfect, the food devine and the rooms very neat and tidy. The view from our room was breathtaking and added to the peacefullness we searched for. Without a doubt we will return sometime. Once again, thank you very much Tony and Vanessa.

tHildesheim - what can I say . . . . . ? A guest house overlooking the Outeniqau Mountains - breathtaking - took the most beautiful sunset & sunrise photos.
Our room was out of this world, overlooking the pool - with crispy white linen & fluffy white towels also decorated with a sprinkling of fresh flowers out of the Hildesheim garden, with a Sherry to welcome us.
The Hosts Tony & Vanessa absolutely went the extra mile with out stay. Tony with his wisdom & knowledge of the Cape loaded our GPS in the evenings with things to do - our days were far to short - so much to do and see - so little time.
Vanessa's baking and spoils with her Carrot Cupcakes and breakfast in a bottle beautifully presented with a flower out of the garden - (just that special touch) that made us feel very special. The way Vanessa feeds her wild birds everyday, is a feast for the eyes. Not to leave Zac and Amber out - two well behaved pets, part of the Hildesheim family.
I certainly will return to Hildesheim to bask in their hospitality, love and laughter . . . . .
I have sweet memories of my stay @ Hildesheim

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool area with the most beautiful view of the mountains

As frequent travelers to upper market areas, this Guest House really surprised us. Having stayed at similar Guest-houses in South-Africa, this one really are my number one. Will use again if we are in the area. As we are from South-Africa, we were surprised how safe it is, and beautiful. The owners Tony and Venassa are very professional. There is a lot of attention to detail and we even got a beautiful arrangement of flowers on our bed one day. We ate breakfast each morning which were very affordable and were worth every cent. We also heard numerous bird sounds during the day, and even at night. Tony were also very helpful with information on what to do and what to see in the area. We highly recommend this Guest house for everyone who visits the George, Wilderness, Knysna, Mosselbay and Plettenberg bay area.

Room Tip: We stayed in a cottage and we recommend it.

We arrived on a beautiful day at Hildesheim Guest house to be greeted by our friendly hosts Tony and Vanessa. Tony quickly helped us to our rooms where we immediately felt right at home. The room was clean and very comfortable. Shortly afterwards our host had noticed our mountain bikes on the car and came through with some printed routes that we could ride in the area with all the GPS co-ordinates which was fantastic and greatly appreciated.
The breakfast in the morning was great, everything was prepared with love and care and tasted fantastic. Our stay was very relaxing and we really enjoyed the beautiful views of the mountains and the lovely gardens. There was also an amazing array of different birds in the gardens, seeing the Knysna Lorie jumping through the trees was also very special.

Thank you Tony and Vanessa for a memorable stay , we loved our time there and will be back soon
