  • Finding Hilltop was easy with the spot on instructions given at time of booking. We checked in easy, and were lucky enough to have the whole house to ourselves. The bed was the most comfortable bed we've stayed in during our travels around New Zealand. The house and room were spotless, and shower was fantastic. Kitchen very well equipped with great instructions about recycling etc. We enjoyed a beer on the deck watching the sun set, and I had a coffee watching the sunrise, sat outside listening to the birdsong and waves crashing. Hilltop is the perfect spot to relax after a day exploring in the Catlins. If you are looking for somewhere to have an evening meal, it is wise to book in advance. We would recommend Hilltop and look forward to staying here in the future. 5

  • Wonderful countryside location with great views over the surrounding hills. Facilities all excellent & the owner very friendly & helpful. If we had had the time we would have happily stayed more than the 2 nights. Those desperate for their internet connections will have to go elsewhere - another bonus! 5

  • We had a wonderful time and the house location and facilities were great. The children were particularly keen on the pool table! Our only suggestion is that the reception area be moved out of the house accommodation as it was a bit odd to have other visitors popping in while we were having meals etc, especially as we had booked exclusive use of the house. 5

  • Thanks for your five star rating Andrea. Sorry about the inconvenience with our other guests. We try to direct visitors to our other house when one is exclusively booked.
