My partner and I have visited Swellendam on numerous occassions, and have tried a variety of B&B's there. Hilltop definitely rates as one of the most comfortable and friendliest. We loved the idea of having breakfast in our fridge allowing us to breakfast at our leisure - and NO washing up!
The other bonus was the little DVD library and the big screen TV. We aren't TV people but we certainly made use of the DVD library, catching up on a couple of movies we had missed.
The overall room and bathroom is tastefully decorated, light and spacious. The bathroom included a really large shower over a bath, while the bed was a very comfortable king size bed - (often a 'double bed' really means two singles pushed together), and along with crisp percale sheets, we certainly felt very pampered!
The owners have certainly made an effort to provide everything one would need and more, like the braai outside, and outside table on your own stoep, and even some sherry for those cold winter nights. O, and the fireplace is real bonus too. Thanks! We'll be back
