“Never want to leave”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

Hildesheim feels like home from the moment you get here.
Tony & Vanessa are so warm & welcoming you feel like you've driven into your own driveway.
They are the most generous of hosts, paying you as much attention or leaving you in solitude as you need.
They are excellent at reading their guests needs and are also invaluable with information about the surrounding areas.
The views from the rooms is so impressive & the rooms themselves are so clean, neat & tidy, with comfortable furnishings, you'll never want to leave.
Sitting pool side under cover in the fabulous lounge chairs enjoying the amazing view is a must.
Breakfast is cooked to your liking at reasonable hours & I would suggest you enjoy their hospitality.
All in all I give Hildesheim 10 stars, fantastic stay at reasonable prices.

What a fantastic experience! Hildesheim is not just a guest house - it is a haven of special touches, friendship, nature at it's best, space and beauty, creativity and the most amazing views and scenery. Sunrises, sunsets and night skies that take your breath away. Tony and Vanessa are not just excellent hosts, they are now friends, whom one treasures. The service and accomodation is superb. Vanessa's breakfasts are not to be missed, and her baking is a gastronomic experience. She even shares her recipes. Being a special birthday, she baked a decadently divine chocolate cake to take home, as a gift. Accomodation is large, clean, very comfortable, private and so peaceful. Birdsong abounds. Location is near enough to places, but far enough to afford space and peace. The best thing was BEING there - the worst, having to leave! Can't wait to return, and am singing their praises wherever I can. Thanks again, Tony and Vanessa - this holiday rates top of the list!

There are not many words to describe how wonderful the stay at Hildsheim was. Everything was superb. The hosts, Tony and Vanessa are very special people and their hospitality is "10 stars". Accomodation excellent, very spacious, very clean and most of all, very welcoming. I honestly felt as if I had come home. This will always be the place I stay at, whenever I visit the area. The staff carry on the excellent hospitality and the surroundings are pure paradise.I could go on and on but will end by saying how much my life was enriched by meeting Tony and Vanessa and spending time at Hildesheim.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be very suitable. Cottage 1 is excellent if you are staying for an extended t...

We stayed in one of the garden houses. It was an outstanding stay. A lot of space (place for up to 4 persons), very clean, good bed, good bathroom, good kitchen, place to sit outside with a view on the large garden of the guesthouse and the sound of the many birds in the surroundings.
The service we received was excellent. Very friendly and helpful owner, a welcome drink...Because it was our honeymoon, they spreaded flowerleaves as a surprise...we were surprised! We very recommend this place!

We have taken more than a carrot cupcake recipe home with us . . . . . memories of a wonderful stay.

We have stayed in many guest houses across the country, but have never experienced the Hildesheim hospitality. Thank you Tony & Vanessa for making our stay special.

We can recommend the unit we stayed in - it overlooks the pool area with a breathtaking view of the mountains in the background. What a beautiful view.

Vanessa, your tasteful meals and the special spoils with fresh flowers out your garden with the muffins and breakfast in a bottle made us feel very special.

Your hospitality will be remembered and assure you the next time we are in the area, Hildesheim will be our first choice and number 1 Stop.

We were privileged to have met you and will always remember the extra mile you went to make our stay special.

Thank you Tony and Vanessa
