Feb 2015: Latest reviews from Airbnb website:

"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 lovi...ngly 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!"

"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! "

"We stayed at accommodation #3 during our last 2 days in South Africa! Very nice interior design (every accommodation looks a bit different, but all very comfortable) & everything you need after 2 weeks on the garden route! The Hilltop Country Retreat is a very relaxing place, with a nice pool in the middle of the green directly in front of the accommodations - & as a perfect extra: the great view on the mountains (and the stars by night)! Since it is really on the top of the hill, next to the mountains, it´s very quiet & peaceful. Very friendly staff, who knows many recommendations for the area! We highly recommend staying there! "
