I enjoyed my stay at the Wilderness hotel. Being that it has only recently reopened, there are things that need attention, but I have no doubt that with time, it will be an amazing place to stay and i look forward to my next stay at the hotel.

Saw a buck in amongst the... More

We arrived at The Wilderness Hotel, and were greeted by the friendly staff. They helped us settle in with smiles on their faces. We had a great time. Thanks for attending to our requests promptly. Will definatly see you again. The only advise would be to modernise the bathrooms and plumbing.

This hotel is within walking distance from Wilderness and all the restaurants. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was okay - although I prefer fresh coffee. Overall not a bad choice if you want to be in Wilderness

We stayed in a pool facing room with a king size bed ans space for two small / teenage children which we do not have.

The room was more than comfortable and a wonderful set up for those travelling with children, affording easy access with privacy as required. The staff are very friendly and obliging in every way. The breakfast provided something for all tastes. The swimming pool area affords a wonderful opportunity for peaceful relaxation with the added bonus of the beach nearby. Unlike... More

Excellant service and lovely location. Breakfast was good value for money. pity you dont have a liquor licence or a resturant so you can eat in the hotel at night. Reception was most helpful when we asked for more coffee and sugar.h
