Staff were very helpful and friendly. Well priced, close to restaurants, beach, petrol station. Great 5km run from hotel all along the river. Will definitely stay there again and will advise others to try them out.

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. The staff was ultra friendly and ady to assist with any requests. Although this hotel was closed for 3 years and only reopened about 4 months ago, they have done a sterling job with refurbishment and in record time. They are still busy with some of the rooms, but it didn't bother... More

Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful!! Would have liked a fridge in the room if I had to "fault" anything, but I would go back anytime, was really a great experience. Well done, impressive!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very well looked after by the staff especially the new manageress who's name I regret I have forgotten, and by Porsha and Nigel. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite as it was out of season and had newly reopened after being closed for 3 years. The suite was massive and had... More

Had a great overnight stay in the beautiful town of Wilderness. Our stay at The Wilderness Hotel was marked by the super friendly and efficient service. Centrally located near quite a few great restaurants which was helpful seeing the hotel at this stage do not offer a lunch or dinner service. Apparently this will change soon. Spacious comfortable rooms and... More

The hotel reopened earlier in 2014 and upgrades are gradually underway with not all facilities operational at the time of stay. The rooms were kept tidy and the hotel is generally clean, with a few maintenance aspects that could do with sorting out. Staying with the discount voucher however, was decent value for money. Well situated just a little way... More

For an overnight stay before moving on up the Garden Route from Cape Town, we had a very comfortable and quiet stay at the Wilderness Hotel. The front desk staff were helpful and we didn't have any hassles at all. Being so close to a few good restaurants was great as it is adds the stay. Will definitely consider going... More
