Review by Nicole Zerwick (Pretoria)

Hillcrest Manor is not "graciously restored" as they claim. The rooms are in a very poor state and the furnishings look cheap and old. Our duvets on our beds were thin and we only had 1 blanket in a double room. The kettle cord had been badly lengthened and the insulation tape was peeling off which we felt made it unsafe to use. The room ceiling fan did not work and the floor fan provided was so filthy that we chose not to switch it on in case we blew the dirt over the whole room. The room also did not have a dustbin which was inconvenient. Further to this they advertised off street parking which did not exist, we had to park in the street. The only highlight was Karen, our hostess who was bubbly and cheerful.

Very Good

Review by Ted Fisher (Johannesburg)

Gerda was a superb, friendly hostess who seemed prepared to do anything to make the stay more pleasant.
Hillcrest Manor is a clean, Victorian bit of history climbing quite steeply up the Lion's Rump in a quiet area. It is close to most of Cape Town's major attractions and offers easy access (Cape Town traffic permitting!) to routes to the further off attractions.

Review by Mark Varder (Joburg )

Hillcrest Manor is ideally situated. It's in a quiet street, with a great view of the mountain, and it's minutes away from the city centre and the Waterfront. I like the feel of the place. When you're away from home, it's the reception you receive that matters and Gerda made me feel most welcome.
