We have stayed 6 days over the Christmas period at the Hilltop Country Lodge. It has been the first time in our travelling experience where the the Internet images and information could not live up to the actual article! The view will leave Ernest Hemingway at a loss for words. The owners made us feel right at home and we... More

Typically when one has booked a place where they have never been before, they feel a certain level of anxiety on whether the place will in fact live up to their expectations. We are glad to say that Hilltop exceeded our expectations!! My wife and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for 5 days over the busy new year period.... More

We arrived from Hermanus and had a comfortable and pleasing stay. Our balcony overlooked Victoria Bay and as we sat having braekfast we watched the rollers break along the beach below. We had an enjoyable meal at The Girls in Wilderness. We then moved on top Plettenburg. In hindsight we wished we had stayed at Hilltop and not moved on... More

For sure the most beautiful location on the Garden Route - the view is simply stunning. We spend two nights here, and had a very pleasant experience. Quiet stop over, enclosed parking, safe in the room, welcome sherry awaiting you. Hope to go again one day!

The view has been extensively celebrated here. Not much more to add except that it is amazing. The lodge has been built with a deliberate Colonial atmosphere, even though it is not that old. I'd say the architects hit that one bang on. The gardens surrounding the lodge are equally impressive though and I'd recommend visitors take the time to... More

What a view the most amazing views. Go there you will not be disappointed, the rooms are lovely and the gardens and pool. The breakfast was pretty good too. We went to Victoria Bay the next day and what a lovely place to go to the sufers were very good.

The Hilltop has a great view and the owner is quite nice, but the room was not 5 or even 4 star as they advertise and as other reviews indicate, it is geared towards a 60+, altough, when I am older, this wouldn't suit us. We had no hot water and they said they had to turn it on? We... More

This was a pleasent enough place to stay, but it is quite out of the way. They do not serve an evening meal, so you have to go into George - getting taxis isn't the easiest thing to do! There seem to be no staff around when you need them either! The rooms have amazing views but they are small... More

We spent six nights here on our honeymoon. It is a bit hard to write a review of Hilltop Lodge as our experience was a bit ambivalent. First the positives: the location is out of this world. Jaw droppingly beautiful. The house is secluded, perched on a cliff above Victoria bay. You can see the rolling Atlantic breakers from your... More

We stayed here for two nights on a garden route tour. The views as you walked out from the lounge and looked over the fantastic gardens was breathtaking. Hennie, our host, was very hospitable and advised us on restaurants and booked them for us. As far as I can see there is nothing average about this place. The attention to... More
