Such a wonderful and accommodating hotel. We stayed in an amazing lodge here and it was a perfect way to end the trip. Whilst there is no swimming pool, this isn't uncommon - I blame the drought/water restrictions for this.More

Very nice location on the hill in a quiet aerea. Nice and quite big rooms with private space outside. Swimming pool rather small. Very friendly managment. Safe aerea. Also very close to center. No breakfast available but good kitchen.

A Hilltop Country Retreat is located in the foothills of the Langeberg Mountains, yet close to the town centre, where you get the best of both worlds ... More 360' views and no traffic. A Hilltop Country Retreat offers a complete experience far superior to that of a mere stop-over.

You can dine inside or on the patio while enjoying the magnificent and inspiring view of the Langeberg Mountains and the town below. Pick some fresh herbs from our garden to prepare your own special meal or dine out at one of the many exquisite restaurants Swellendam has to offer. Here you can relax and unwind surrounded by breathtaking landscapes in a restful environment far from the hustle and bustle, but convenient to Swellendam's many attractions. A Hilltop Country Retreat treats you to high standards of hospitality throughout, but it's also a great base for trips and excursions. Book today, and come and experience the delights A Hilltop Country Retreat has to offer.
