About A Hilltop Country Retreat

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-degree views and no traffic.

A Hilltop Country Retreat offers a complete experience far superior to that of a mere stopover. 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. Each room now has a DVD player with a selection of DVD's to watch free of charge.

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.

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.

              Lovely room, super location at the top of the hill. Great decor and comfort. Staff are incredible which makes a stay for a single traveller rewarding. Highly recommended.

              The room was neat and clean and just what I was expecting based on all the other reviews I read, but the most notable for me was the friendly staff and also the peaceful atmosphere of the place in general. Our check out time was 11 am but we wanted to go do a morning hike at the Marloth Nature Reserve and did not want to leave our bags in the car. We were worried we would not be back by 11 am. The staff were very accommodating and allowed us to keep our bags in the room and we were even able to each have a quick shower before we left on our long trip back to JHB. If we come back to this area...

              We absolutely loved everything about this beautifully appointed place. Lots of tastefully decorated rooms. Stunning attention to detail. Peaceful quiet spot to relax. Fantastic view of the mountain and reserve just a few steps away. Loved it.

              We had a lovely stay over at this luxurious establishment, the pools are well maintained and very inviting for a hot summery day. Had a great time braaing outside our well equipped and comfortable family room. They even supplied wood fire lighters. Wish we could have stayed longer as there is so much to do in this beautiful area but will definitely be back to enjoy another country holiday in style. Thank you Lana for the warm welcome and advise on places to visit.*the bath plug in our room seemed to be leaking and another towel for the little one would have been nice as there were only 2 towel...
