4 star luxury self-catering accommodation on a superb location. 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 ... 360' views and no traffic. A Hilltop Country Retreat offers a complete experience far superior to that of a mere stop-over. Our rooms are spacious and luxurious featuring finishes and furniture made by local entrepreneurs and artists. The delightful calabash radios, created by South African artist Soloman, are just one of the beautiful, unique and mostly handmade elements we have chosen to enrich your stay. Our accommodation offers great value for money. All the rooms come with en-suite bathrooms and fully equipped self-catering kitchens. 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. We offer guests the option of a fully stocked fridge for breakfast, so you can enjoy your morning meal in the privacy of your own room or patio whenever it suits you. Breakfast includes: bacon, eggs, tomato, toast, butter, jam, muesli, yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea, sugar, milk and a variety of fruit. **DSTV now available in all the rooms

Very rustic setting in the timbered building. Huge spacious rooms and good bathroom. We walked into town and back - that part about Hilltop means it was uphill on the way back! Not too much, but had us slow down a bit. Breakfast is not included, but fixings for breakfast are

We stayed over for just one night on our way back to Cape Town. There was a terrific thunderstorm which just added to the experience. We loved it and would recommend to anyone in the area. The staff were very friendly and the deluxe double room was amazing!

It was a really beautiful apartment with a nice terrace and a grill and a small but nice pool area. The staff was very friendly and explained all good to us. We had a private parking area and a nice view to the town.
