What a stunning place! The hostess Jane, was next level - very welcoming and friendly. Showed us around and helped us to settle in. Everything (room, garden, and swimming pool) was in perfect order - clean, neat, organized. Even wood for the braai was ready for the new year celebrations. Will definitely recommend it to future travelers.
We stayed in the seperate 2 bedroom home with stunning mountain view! Private braai area in lovely garden Everything was perfect from friendly staff to tastefulle decorated unit Close to stunning golf course Will definitely visit again!
Swellendam has always been a favourite stopover of ours. We have previously stayed in some fine boutique hotels and guest houses in and around this historic, scenic and interesting town and surrounds. Well worth more than just a 'one night stop'. We most recently did some research, and wanted to spend a few days there self-catering, which provided us with privacy and space, and one has access to some of the great dining options available. A Hilltop Country Retreat enjoys a peaceful location at the top end of the town with views of the Langeberg Mountains. Privately owned we liaised with GM Lana Groenewald on our booking and then met this terrific person on our arrival. Lana we found to be a warm welcoming host, hugely competent and with a great team. We had been allocated Room 9, which proved to be a superb suite with high ceilings, contemporary design, and encompassing a very comfortable bedroom (think king size bed, fine linens, an endless supply of towels and absolutely every amenity you could wish for). The bathroom includes a glorious walk in shower. The fully equipped kitchen with 'state of the art facilities coupled with a great dining and lounge area (a fireplace too), with some very special art on the walls. We had our own private patio, leading on to a lawned area, and overlooking one of the two swimming pools on the property. Should you wish to have your fridge stocked with a complete breakfast, it is arranged, and a chef is called in if you wish to dine in. It has been a very long time since we have experienced such an impeccable eye for detail, and it would certainly be my first choice for future visits. We were supplied with maps and guides (all current), outlining the many activities on offer around Swellendam. Seek it out, and the of course an added factor, this is high end delivery at an affordable rate!…
We had a great time at A Hill Top Country Retreat. The service, staff including the management and the facilities was 5 star. An excellent self catering retreat. Lovely hiking facilities plus Lana provides a detailed inventory of the going on in the town.
