A lovely hotel with lots of history and old world charm. It is so good that it is open again and to be able stay there again. As renovations continue I hope it achieves excellent reviews once more for all the ratings.

This place has a lot of history behind it and it shows that. It was recently struggling again. The first impression, from outside, is: this could cost a lot. I inquired and the gave me a large room at a bargain price. So i was happy, standing in the huge hall or in the Veranda, downloading things with my Ipad... More

Had a good time. Want to mention that there is a lot of water wasted waiting for the hot to eventually arrive when taking a shower. This also applies to the basin. As the shower is in the bath I found that standing in it was very slippery. This could be dangerous for older people as a slip could cause... More

All very good & enjoyable. Bath/shower a bit lethal if you are not careful. Fridge in room on request to store diabetes insulin was very kind. Very difficult to get coffee or tea after 22h00. Overall thank you.

You guys pulled out all the stops in accommodating nearly 300 Harley-Davidson enthusiasts at the Garden Route H.O.G. Two Passes Rally. The service and meals were excellent. Well done! We WILL be back in 2016.

Well organised, good breakfast pleasant staff, however the rooms and bathrooms need a make over, other then that still a nice venue for the Harley Davidson Rally of which I am sure all will agree on. Thanks

Really enjoyed our stay. Part of a wedding party but that is incidental. Large comfortable room in a hotel with many amenities and very friendly staff. For the cost, this really represented excellent value for money.

We were welcomed by Original as we parked our bike and he took care of us our entire stay. nothing was too much trouble for him. Our entire weekend was filled with friendly and efficient staff, comfortable accommodation and an experience we will always remember. Thank you all at The Wilderness Hotel. We will be back.
