Loved it, nice and quiet staff are amazing! Our room got upgraded free of charge! The bed was nice and comfy, plus we had a fire in our room which made it really cozy. Cycling tracks are awesome but make sure you know which way to go as it is quite easy to get lost! We will be back.

The apartments are wonderful. With your own fireplace for chilly nights, a full equipped kitchen, a very clean bathroom and large, comfortable bed, lovely interior. We also got some great recommendations for restaurants nearby. Very much recommended!

The place is absolutely fabulous, the apartment is well equipped and neatly decorated. The bed is comfortable and the braai station just cool. Also the entire property is so neatly set up with an eye to the detail. It is very unfortunate that we only stayed 1 night.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hilltop Retreat. As we arrived we were immediately greeted by Lana who took time to explain local attractions that are worth visiting on our stay. Swellendam has so much to offer! We immediately felt at home in the luxurious surroundings, and will be sure to return for a longer period in the future. Thank You Lana and Jane for such a lovely stay in you very well run establishment. See you soon!

I can fully recommend Hilltop Country Retreat. We only stayed for one night which was a shame but Jane welcomed us like good friends. Our room was very comfortable with everything you could possibly wish for and more. It is situated in a very quiet road with amazing views all around and the town of Swellendam was friendly and inviting. We took Alison, the resident dog, for a walk in the morning before we left and were spoilt with fantastic views of the mountains behind. I met Lana on the morning we left and again was welcomed with open arms. A great stay and I hope to be back one day. Thank you.

Eine wunderschöne Unterkunft in einer traumhaften Landschaft! Lana and Jane sorgen für eine herzliche und willkommene Atmosphäre! Wir kommen gerne wieder! Auch kinder sind hier willkommen! Die Lage lädt zum erkunden des fussläufig zu erreichenden Natur reservars ein sowie zum schlendern durch den Ort. Swellendam ist auf jeden Fall ein Besuch wert und bietet großartige Restaurants entlang der Hauptstraße!

Extraordinary Hilltop lodging! We were stunned by the beautifully designed grounds and the extremely tastefully decorated accommodation providing every possible amenity (every unit has its own little terrasse with small "garden" boasting a braai facility, fire basket, hanging rail for clothes, etc. etc.). The rooms were welcoming us with several lovingly arranged details (such as a stuffed rabbit on each children`s bed) whilst we were provided with a helpful map with things to do and places to see/eat at in Swellendam - we will certainly be back!

Swellendam is a quaint little town, friendly people and plenty of unique coffee shops. The perfect destination for a short weekend vacation away form the busy city.
