"Loved the deck with table, chairs, braai and day bed! Loved the big yard for our animals. Loved the comfortable beds, having a dishwasher and a super microwave/convection oven and great shower. Thank you for providing us towels upon request. That should actually be standard equipment in a guesthouse. A simple TV that works would also have been nice.The agent Brian Robinson was helpful and kind. Thank you for a lovely, cosy home away from home."

"Stay at Hilltops was disappointing, expected much more for R2 250 per night!On the positive side it was sunny in the mornings and the place was neat and clean.Establishments Response:On reading this review I called the guest and asked for specifics, the guest said they did enjoy their visit but felt the prices were too high, but that they did realize that prices in Clarens are at that level. The guest mentioned that there were no towels, which is in the description online and in the message sent with each quote and that she felt that the bedlinen and crockery was not of a high enough standard. Note: it is all hospitality grade. She also repeated that the house was very clean and tidy and that Mamako, our housekeeper was friendly and always on time."

"We enjoyed our stay at Hilltops very much. Nice and cozy around the fireplace. Clean and comfortable. It is a beautiful house with perfect view. Can only imagine how pretty it can be in spring and summer as well. The mountains are breath taking and we took about 2000 photo's this weekend. Jane is an absolute darling. She is a warm and friendly person. There realy is nothing that we can complain about. We would definately tell others about Hilltops and the friendly people there. For all your trouble and friendly help, also a BIG thank you! Thanks again for everything and all the best for you, Jane and your families."

"We did not feel very welcome in the Hilltops owners house. On almost every wall there were notes. "Do not do this, do not do that." We were almost scared to sit on the coach! They also have VERY strong cleaning rules! We ignored that rules but it was not very nice to see what they expected of us! We went out there to have a holiday! We think it is actually their private holiday home that they should not rent out. For instance the kitchen... there is 12 cupboards of which 8 was locked of with 'private locks' 2 had cleaning stuff and 1 had a dustbin. We had to live out of our cooler box because there was no were to pack out our food that did not belong in a fridge/freezer. Unfortunately it was also a very load weekend from the informal settlement side. With us sitting next to our fire in the eveningd the only thing we heard was there shouting and load music. Coming from Jo'burg we went to Clarens to get away from noises like that! Clarens will maybe see us again but Hilltops will never ever see me again!"

"We enjoyed our stay, however the stairs from the top floor to the flat below need to be gated. Jane was an excellent host and we would stay again on our travels."
