Couple, Brazil, December 2023.

Our experience was incredible! From the moment we arrived, we lived the "make yourselves at home" vibe, albeit in a much more beautiful and cozier setting than our usual one! We spent 3 days at the hotel and left with a huge desire to have stayed longer!

The rooms are beautiful, spacious, with a lovely view of the mountains. The food is delicious, you can feel with every bite that it was made with so much care! But the absolute highlight for us was the staff. They were all extremely attentive, kind, truly going above and beyond to make the guests feel as comfortable as possible. If I could give one tip to those planning to stay, it's this: talk to the hotel staff as much as you can. I felt like I was chatting with longtime friends; we didn't want to go to sleep just to keep talking, haha. They explained local cultures, gave tips on outings and activities, and were extremely attentive in every interaction!

I can only express gratitude for the incredible experience our stay was. I wholeheartedly recommend it with closed eyes and a warm heart.

Truly wonderful and welcoming staff, we were greeted outside on arrival and escorted through to our rooms, both of us pleasantly surprised at the spectacular views.
After settling into our rooms we were given a tour through the facilities, a very warm and homely feeling throughout. The food is without a doubt first class. Again a big thank you to all the staff who are very friendly and quick to help. Making sure dad I received the very best service.
5 stars all the way. Thanks guys I’ll be back soon with more friends and family. Capt. J du Preez & Dad.

We had the privilege to stay a few days at Silver Hill Lodge. What a lovely place. Beautiful surroundings where you can walk for hours and relax afterwards enjoying magic views sipping your drink on the terras. All people working there gave us the feeling we were home away from home. Hospitality with capitals!

Thanks and see you again.

Do not hesitate to book into Silver Hill Lodge if you are looking for complete peace, quiet, and ‘getting away from it all.’ Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff, and meals were absolutely delicious. On a side note, we are vegetarian, and they happily and substantially catered for us. The setting is beautiful and inspirational. Thank you to everyone for your kindness and care. Top tip: drink the delicious tap water!

We had a great stay, the staff were fantastic and really helpful. The location was beautiful. The food was tasty and the cooks were ready to accommodate a fussy eater. My husband went fishing on a very wet day, but eventually caught a rainbow with Mike's guidance. Walking routes are well marked and varied. Thoroughly recommend Silver Hill Lodge.

Silver Hill Lodge was simply a delightful experience. We went as a family and the entire experience was exceptional, the room was clean and the food fresh and delicious. The Lodge is so beautiful and well kept. The team went out of their way to assist us when our car got stuck in the mud..."talking about going the extra mile for your guests" . Silver Hill Lodge its definitely a home away from home. We will definitely be returning. Thank you to Anthea and everyone for providing great service and making us feel special😊.

Friendly, peaceful & beautiful. Plenty to do - we loved trout fishing at the top dam. Loads of birds to see, including a fish eagle (my favourite) and protected bearded vultures. Our hike in Highmoor Nature Reserve, which neighbours them, was wonderful. They made a surprise Birthday cake for my husband, for dessert on the Sat night :)
