Excellent accommodation, great breakfast, welcoming,friendly and informative hosts. An added attraction was the feeding of the birds each morning in the extensive gardens. This gave us the opportunity of see, close up, the rare Knysha Loere (hope spelling is correct). Guest House is in quite a remote location so a car is essential.

I had a wonderful relaxing stay, very large and spacious room and bathroom. Very neat and clean, white linen and all. The hosts, Tony and Vanessa are extremely warm and welcoming. Delicious breakfast. You would definitely need a vehicle (on top of a steep hill)however town is about 5km away. If you are looking for a getaway spot, to relax... More

My husband and I had a very peace full and relaxing get away for the weekend and the service was excellent. Even though we were close to home it felt like we were on holiday, we really enjoyed our stay at Hildesheim and would definitely visit again in future.

Hildesheim is situated close to Wilderness and is about 6 km from the main town. You will need a vehicle to be able to visit Wilderness and the surrounds. A visit to the Big Tree in the Woodville Hiking Trial (free of charge and less than 20 minutes’ drive) is a must. We have found Hildesheim to be a melody... More

I cannot put it better than the review by "redeemed2015 - A haven of tranquility". Immaculate cottage in a gorgeous setting, friendly, helpful hosts and dog Candice, super breakfast, etc. Will definitely be back and will recommend to all.

From start to finish our stay was one big pleasant surprise. The location is stunning and our hosts so friendly. The view from the deck is peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed the abundance of bird life and proximity to Wildernis

A little below expectations and needing some updating in the bathrooms and woodwork but a really lovely spot in the hills above Wilderness - which makes it perfect to visit places of interest or just to enjoy the surroundings. Beware the odd woodcutter buzzing though!
