We stayed in the Wilderness Hotel for 2 nights. The location is ideal, but the standard of the hotel needs a lot of attention. The staff are generally friendly and helpful, but the food & beverage staff are in dire need of training. The wifi is restricted to a small area in the hotel, and is extremely slow. There are...

I stayed at this hotel with my family during Christmas last month. The hotel re-opened 6 months ago, after 3 years. It went through some renovation but it still needs a lot more. However it's clean, has a really nice pool and garden and very nice staff. During Christmas dinner, the staff was overwhelmed and we waited 2 hours to... More

It was good value for money and in a great location. We were very impressed with the rooms and service considering it has only been re-opened a short while. It was a great family hotel and we would definately stay again.

Our family really enjoyed our 6 day stay. Considering the hotel has been closed for years it is looking good. Our rooms/bathrooms were clean however needs to be updated. The pool sparkling clean, area beautiful and neat. Some of the outdoor facilities require maintenance which I am certain will be dealt with. Breakfast very good but need a bit of... More

We were thrilled to hear that the hotel has opened once again, and were pleasantly surprised by the decor and cleanliness. A perfect spot for a family holiday. The pool was a favorite gathering place and service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Service was a little slow for the evening meal on the terrace. That may have been... More

Nice but dated. Been there more than once, the last 5 years ago and nothing has changed! Besides the flat screen tv. we live the feel of the Hotel but feel that the rooms need modernizing. Nice family hotel where the kids are safe and enjoyed the Health Spar. The location is also good.

Our 5-day family stay was great! Breakfast was also good, but I think some daily variation would be nice. The public lounge upstairs is brilliant - spent time reading & relaxing there. Squash courts needs a bit of work.

The Hotel was very good. The service at the front desk was excellent but the servive from the bar and the restuarant in the evenings was very poor. The rooms were acceptable but needed updating as the bathrooms are very old. At times there was no hot water. The family room needs a door between the bedroom and an additional... More

I would come back to your hotel, it was enjoyable. The hotel is centrally situated. the spa was great. Please take more care of the gardens at the back of the hotel because when you sit on your deck you can see that the area has not been maintained.
