“Serene stay at Hildeshuim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We stayed at Hildeshuim for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, excellent service and the lovely neat room. My fiance and I were upgraded to the Honeymoon suite which has a spa bath which was a lovely added extra. Soft gowns and slippers are provided for that extra bit of luxury. The flowers and petals in the room added to that feeling of being pampered. We also enjoyed chatting to Toni who was helpful with advice on where to go for dinner and things to do in the Wilderness area. We felt rested and well looked after during our stay and recommend Hildeshuim for anyone that wants a peaceful getaway.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful two night stay at Hildesheim. Tony greeted us with some delicious sherry on our arrival, and provided us with great information for places to go and nature to see around Wilderness. The views from our cottage and the rest of the grounds were positively stunning, and such a treat for us New Yorkers. We will definitely be telling friends and family back home about Hildesheim!

What a lovely unit! Beautiful, clean, peaceful surroundings - just what you need to get away from it all! Everything you need in the kitchen - sometimes you look for a pot/pan and there's nothing - our unit even had two pans!!!There were even welcoming flowers on our beds! Lovely experience!

The owners at Hildesheim are very accommodating and very helpful. If you need anything or have any questions they are more than happy to help you out.
It's a beautiful place, I would definitely recommend staying here.

Earlier this month my husband and I stayed at Hildesheim for four nights and we were really pleasantly surprised. When I phoned to check our booking a few weeks ahead of the time Tony gave us pointers about what we need to do before arrival. Tony magically appears when you arrive in the parking lot and offers to assist with carrying luggage and shopping bags. You have personalised service at breakfast and if you order muesli it comes in the cutest jar with the best version of a modern breakfast cup. Vanessa’s baking and cooking is absolutely lovely and you will easily notice why her baking is sent to local businesses to be sold. Returning from your daily tours holds a surprise service from romantic rose petals on the bed to delectable moist chocolate cake slices with strawberries and more. The guesthouse has amazing views and the serenity of the area makes you content to just sit and bathe in the sun. Tony is the human version of several tourism apps in one - at breakfast he gives ideas about what you can do for the day, the weather forecast, directions to tourist attractions, etc. We have been on a lot of vacations at different types of holiday venues, but we can truly say that the treatment we received from Hildesheim was excellent and very memorable.

We had such a lovely time there. The beds were comfortable, the view from our suite was incredible and Tony was so accommodating. Tony even gave us a few recommendations on places to go walking/hiking. We have added it to the list of places we'd consider for honeymoon.

We were met by a very friendly and helpful Tony (host) who escorted us to the Honeymoon suite - although married for 20 years this lovely room sprinkled with flower petals and a SPA bath put our memories back 20 years. The idyllic pastures, trees and beautiful mountains and the quiet countryside environment and a glass of red wine put us in a relaxing mood straight away. When our batteries need a re-charge this is the place to put mind and soul together again. Definitely to be highly recommended.
