Stunning views, best muesli pots and breakfast. Delicious rusks in the rooms home made by the owner. Clean white linen, immaculately clean rooms, friendly owners, manicured gardens. Overall experience was fantastic

5 / 5 : Idyllic and peaceful after a wonderful, busy day at the beach in Wildernis. Rooms were spacious and extremely neat and tidy. Bird life plenty with restaurants close-by. Safe up in the mountains with wonderful views.

An excellent location, close to the charming area of 'Wilderness'. Our host was delightful, friendly and caring. Our immaculate accommodation was situated within beautifully landscaped gardens. Our host was most keen to share his knowledge of the local area and attractions. Breakfast was substantial and delicious.

I found previous reviews of Hildesheim to be spot on.

What did matter, was a host who was fantastic...

Tony and Vanessa certainly know how to run a guest house, nothing is too much trouble for them. Freshly prepared breakfasts in the morning at the time you requested, a lovely big swimming pool to cool down in with stunning views over the Outeniqua mountains, monkeys and a huge variety of birds to photograph that visit their gardens. You need...

This is one of those places that I don't really want to review in case everyone else finds out and comes here lol. Very roomy, friendly owners. Just the right balance of luxury and simplicity.
