        Perfect in every way”
        A Hilltop Country Retreat largely exceeded our expectations. Quiet location in the vicinity of Bontebok National Park and close to the town centre. The house we rented was stunning, 2 large and tastefully decorated bedrooms and living room, fully equipped kitchen and 2 terraces with BBQ facilities. The house is somewhat secluded from the other rooms to guarantee absolute privacy. After 25 years of travelling in South Africa, Hilltop was no doubt the best accommodation we have had in Swellendam.

        The place was great however we had no water in the bathrooms due to a municipal pipe issue. This was a major inconvenience as we could not shower and had to boil kettle water to clean ourselves. I think a discount should have been offered to make up for the inconvenience to the guest.

        Nice place to stay ”
        Hope the owners read this as for very little money spent it could be so much better. We would definitely stay again - so hope you give it a try. Really liked the BBQ (Braai) facility with each room and the outdoor wood fire - great to be able to make your own meal at night and chill on your own private pourch. No aircon in the room - but rooms large and cool the fan provided was all we needed and we were there in 2 very hot nights. The swimming pool - isn't a swimming pool it's only 1m deep and tiny - sit in to cool down that's it. Improvements that would cost very little and make a big impact - 1. Provide a bottle of water (not tap water) even if only with the fridge food you pay for - really what does that cost !? 2. Nice touch to provide sherry - but in an old fruit juice bottle ... really !? What would it cost to have a small nice decanter !? 3. Either provide Fresh toiletries - soap / creams etc - or none at all nobody wants to use other guests half used toiletries !

        Everything was spotless. The staff were super friendly and helpful. There was a wonderfully cute cat wandering about to our delight. The little touches like the sherry, rusks, fruit and honesty fridge were much appreciated. It would be nice if we could rather pay for the items from the honesty fridge at checkout though as we seldom carry cash. The view is amazing, the bed is comfortable and we will definitely be returning!

        Located in quiet and safe residential area, with a nice mountain and valley view
        Nice accommodation in simple building with terrace towards a garden, Luxury Double Room is a bit misleading. Self catering units, breakfast can be pre-ordered, pool is a small plunge pool.

        Une déception”
        La chambre en elle-même est plutôt agréable mais le terrain est petit, la terrasse donne sur une cour où on voit tous les autres invités et on entend tout ce qui se passe dans les chambres d'à côté. Donc si vous cherchez un coin tranquille sans vis-à-vis et sans avoir besoin de fermer vos rideaux dès que vous sortez de la douche, passez votre chemin. La piscine est un petit carré de 4m², il n'y a pas de vue spécifique et aucun petit-déjeuner possible. La ville de Swellendam n'a aucun intérêt même si l'emplacement du gîte permet des excusions en début de montagne.

        Schöner Wohnen - Service geht so”
        Tolle Lage, nett aufgemacht, wir hätten leider kein Pferd dabei...
        Als wir angereist sind waren wir zunächst von der Anlage begeistert, da hier wirklich alles aber auch alles aufeinander abgestimmt schien. Es machte einen tollen Gesamteindruck und vermittelte den Eindruck das hier Künstlerhand/Innenarchitektenhand vom Feinsten am Werke war, leider konnte man dies vom Service so gar nicht behaupten, denn am Sa Mittag bei unserer Anreise haben wir die sog. Gastgeberin ein letztes Mal an diesem Wochenende gesehen. Besondere Features wie Reservierung eines Restaurants, oder das Ausleihen einer DVD für den Abend - Fehlanzeige. Das einzige was zurück blieb waren der jaulende eingesperrte Terrier der Familie und ein paar ebenfalls suchende Gäste, die allerdings noch keinen Schlüssel für ihr Appartment hatten. Da haben wir es wohl gut angetroffen?! könnte man zynisch meinen. Auf unserem Gardenroutetrip die schlechteste Leistung - schade. Vielleicht beim nächsten Mal mit Pferd.
