Top of hill Mahe
We arrived to the villa after check-in time and the host Irene greeted us with two glasses of juice and a welcoming introduction. Everything went smooth from then on, we could always count on her help. We did not manage to try home-made cuisine or the designated restaurant and beach of Carana but that's only because we chose this place for Beau Vallon / Victoria proximity and driving around (highly recommended by car especially as this charming villa is located on top of a hill as the name suggests). The room and space around is just as the pictures show it, maybe with exception of the pool as it is quite short 5x3m, and seems like not all the surfaces are covered by tiles (maintenance?) The room had a fridge TV a small balcony an interesting rocking chair and a very spacious bathroom with tub. (Room 2 it was). For the sensitive: interior of the villa is not air-conditioned and the steps of the staircase can be a bit short for some. During our short 2 night stay we didn't get to fully enjoy the hospitality of very friendly hosts and staff, but we sure made the most of it with the help of Irene and her map we fully indulged into Mahe. + bottles of water and help with luggage - wifi could use an upgrade

Poor 2.0
Nice location and that's all
Spent there 2weeks in February with the wife.Immediately upon arrival the Lady that runs the place requested full worries I paid....sth like 1600US. Got notyfied the room was equipped with a safe which was true. So..the following day we put all cash inside..covered it (unintentionally) with passports and some other docs...with two wallets on top.One with 400 US inside. Coming back...I checked the safe....400 US from the wallet was missing....with my code still working.I locked the safe...had a close look at it..and inserted 4x0. It sprang open with my code still intact. Reported the theft to the lady owner....welll..finally she in a way suggested that I wanted to cheat on her. Having paid for the whole period on arrival...I had to stay there...which was awfully uncomfortable. That was the worst experience I have ever had with a holiday accomodation so I will give the place wide berth in the future. There were other things like cleaning etc...but acceptable.

Fair 4.0
I should have realised by the name, Hill Top Villa, the hotel was indeed right at the top of a very steep hill, a long way from a bus stop which meant huge costs of taking taxis, some 300 rupees to get into the town, but really the only way of access,I am recovering from a knee replacement so unable to walk hard enough to walk down but imposible to walk up,altogther the wrong place to stay and vastly over priced !

Good 6.0
Could be better for the price...
You need a car for this hotel as there is basically nothing around walking is a steep uphill and especially at night not convenient...take a blanket as the one provided is like an aircraft style little blanket..

Exceptional 10.0
Attractive small with lovely views
This comfortable B & B type hotel is like staying at a lovely, small plantation private home. My room was large and comfortable with a small balcony overlooking a wooded hillside. The staff made me feel very welcome and cared for. The breakfast was cooked to order and served in an attractive, covered but open-air verandah, overlooking the nearby forested hills.
