Our 2 nights at Hilltop could not have been better. Lovely large room with deck overlooking the English-style gardens and low-key pool. But the view from high on this point of land between Wilderness and Victoria Bay is breathtaking, day or night. Chickens, geese, and birds abound but the well-trained rooster stays quiet until at least 8am! Wonderful breakfast - all that fresh fruit! You must drive into town for dinners which is a slight hassle but worth it to stay at Hilltop.

Room Tip: All rooms take good advantage of the wonderful view; beautifully furnished.

very well located surrounded by a park-like garden with a fantastic view over the ocean.
very good breakfast on a beautiful terrace overlooking garden and ocean.

What a position! All that you could wish for for a few days stay. Very comfortable accommodation and fantastic breakfast every morning. Hennie was the perfect host and lovely to talk to. Around the area are great restaurants in Wilderness and a lovely beach and cafe down in Victoria Bay. Also some good walks.
Certainly a very enjoyable stay

Room Tip: Best views

We spent a wonderful fortnight at Hilltop - it truly is a stunning place with magnificent views. The owners are attentive, helpful and are delightful company. Yes, it is slightly quirky - you are staying in someone's home, with all that that entails. So, if for instance you are not happy with eating your breakfast while four monkeys watch you intently from 5 yards away, then perhaps you should consider staying at an anonymous and anodyne hotel down the road. Hilltop is special. We were lucky to be able to have a self-catering option, which meant staying in a separate cottage with its own secluded setting - but still with astonishingly beautiful views down Wilderness Bay. Would we stay there again? You bet!
