We had a sneak peek at the renovated rooms. It looks much more up to date and we look forward to seeing the rest of the hotel being renovated. Will stay there again. Good food at the restaurant. Chicken and steak dishes were very good. Lots to do: tennis, bowls, giant chess and swimming pool

The Wilderness Hotel has a rich history it offers to share with its visitors. This hotel still presents that old and historic feel, yet at the same time being quite up to date with the current age. At the Wilderness Hotel there are numerous activities for old and young to enjoy. At night you can enjoy an Irish coffee next... More

I was blown away by the big rooms we got. It was like an apartment. 2 enormous bedrooms, Lounge area and kitchenette. I know that it's an old hotel, but they need to change/upgrade with time. The carpets must be replaced and there was some damp problems in the main bedroom. But after all of this, I would easily stay... More

We were on a Groupon weekend special for two people at this hotel. The spacious room, looking out over the lagoon, is well serviced, has a king sized bed with good bedding and 2 additional beds. The breakfast was adequate. An excellent restaurant, Pomodoro is in walking distance, for amazing dinners.

In spite of the huge, labyrinthine appearance of the place, staff are very friendly and efficient, the rooms clean with all necessities. Breakfast was simply wonderful and I would definitely stay over again.

We thought this hotel would be out of our budget but needed to stop for the night. It was very reasonably priced, the rooms were a bit dated but clean and had all the amenities. Close to the centre of town and restaurants. Breakfast had everything you needed.

Great value for money, fantastic location but the hotel and rooms definitely need some updating. The room was very spacious and comfortable but the bathroom was disappointing. The main hotel bathroom is also very outdated. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
