We really enjoyed our 3 week stay at Cottage on the Hill. The charming buildings are thatched which keeps the rooms cool and airy. The outlook over St. Francis Bay is stunning and this view is seen from the rooms and at the breakfast table. The accommodation is smart, stylish, very clean and comfortable but still retains an African ambience....

Our stay at the Cottage on the Hill was a relaxing break between safari and Cape Town. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was the best I had during our entire African holiday. Anne was also great about recommending game reserves and stops on our drive to Cape Town. We are definitely coming back.
