The reception and hospitality of Johan and Annatjie was awesome. The rooms are well equipped and lovely decorated which ads to a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Extremely neat and clean. Supper was delicious and attractively served. A lovely view over the lagoon ads to the wonderful atmosphere of Cloverleigh. A nice walk along the lagoon after a long days travel,... More

Johan took us in late evening and the accomodation was wonderful and good hearty breakfast the next morning. Safe overnight parking also. Certainly I would recommend staying here and were sorry to not stop over for longer.

We needed to look for accommodation in Wilderness at short notice and were guided to the Cloverleigh. Johan the proprietor was a genial host. The rondhavel was a delight, big bed, plenty of towels, clean and bright. Breakfast on the raised deck overlooking the river was good, We would recommend a stay here to friends. Well done Johan and Mrs.... More

The perfect accomodation to explore the garden route and relax in a perfect setting. Situated on the Wilderness lagoon the Cloverleigh offers private, spacious, and clean accomodation. The hosts Johan and Annatjie go out of their way to ensure their guests enjoy the hospitality they expect when traveling in this scenic area. Their knowledge of the activities, tourist attractions and... More

On this visit we were delighted to have a family of bushbuck visit our cottage to smell (well actually eat) the roses. Nothing is too much trouble for Johan and Annetjie. We had the Honeymoon Cottage with both whirlpool bath and... More

We were on the hunt for a getaway in the Garden Route and managed to find an opening at Cloverleigh...the only spot available was the Forest cottage (a self catering room). After looking at pictures and seeing that it was 4 star we were looking forward to our stay. Upon arrival we were greatly disappointed. The room was tiny with... More

Cloverleigh Guest house is situated on the Wilderness Lagoon, we received a friendly welcome at the end of a long ride. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the lagoon. It had two beds which the owner pushed together for us. The room was a good size, with plenty of cupboard space for long stay visitors. It was squeaky... More
