Our visit was excellent from the very first moment we arrived. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.. The views were breathtaking and we were totally relaxed throughout our stay. Hope to be back next year.

We received a friendly welcome. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help. The room was modern and comfortable with all the basic necessities and nice extras. The view from the room was absolutely stunning; there were comfortable deck chairs and outside furniture. Very comfortable bed and lovely white linen. This is truly a 5-star experience.

Spectacularly situated Guest House right inside the cliff over the inlet, you spend hours just enjoying the huge waves from the Indian Ocean breaking right below you, before calmly entering the inlet to the beautiful lagoon. Very nice modern building, tastefully furnished, spacious bedrooms looking to the sea which you hear all night.. Open windows all night and not a single mosquito. Staff and owners very friendly, dinner to the seaside terrace, was fine. The price is absolutely adequate.

Thank you so much for you kind words. We are very proud of our establishment and are so glad that you enjoyed staying here as much as we enjoyed looking after you. The sound of the waves crashing all the time is food for the soul!

We have been there a couple of times and believe it's best to go with a group of 6. The view is spectacular and it's best on a windless evening so that you can have pre dinner drinks outside taking in the view.
The food has always been excellent but be careful when selecting your wines as the pricing is rather steep - you can find reasonable offerings.
Service is usually good however last time we were there the barman - who was young - had an irritating attitude.

Hi Francis

Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your dinner experience with us. We take great pride in our wines and great wine takes time and effort to source. We actually have a few vintages which cannot be bought anywhere else in the country! But there will always be something for you to enjoy with your food. We look forward to hosting you again from the beginning of March sometime.

One night in the Elephant suite with drinks on the deck before and after a perfect dinner with special wine was the perfect end to our 50th celebrations. The view is unbeatable.
my one regret is that I was not allowed a cigar with my brandy on the wind swept open deck outside our room - but that is the world we now live in.

So glad you enjoyed your final 50th anniversary celebration at Head over Hills. We were honoured that you chose to share it with us! We enjoyed having you here and the banter was great. Apologies for the "no cigar" but like you say, this is the world we live in now!
