We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel while on our honeymoon in September 2014. Although they were undergoing some changes, it has a lovely old world charm to it, but the rooms are up to date with all the gadgets you need. The staff were very friendly and when we decided to play a round of putt-putt at 9pm... More

One of the most outstanding aspects of our stay was the friendliness and good service we received from every member of staff without exception. We first stayed at the Wilderness Hotel 50 years ago on honeymoon. When we heard that it had been re-opened, we decided to take a trip down memory lane again. The hotel has a great situation...

We will definitely be utilising the Hotel again for... More

The family room we booked was great wit the exception of slight mould issue in the bathroom ( the extractor fans probably... More

Rooms very comfortable and quiet. Good night sleep, ample breakfast and good feeling. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the "trendy" little village. Easy walk to the... More

Everything was perfect during our overnight stay: comfortable beds, a good quality room with a balcony and a nice view of the lagoon/river and an excellent breakfast. We will return for a longer visit in the future.

This was a good overnight stay. The bathrooms could do with some upgrading, but overall good value for the money. Service good. Location excellent. Front desk very helpful. Breakfast could be a little more presentable.
