The hotel reopened earlier in 2014 and upgrades are gradually underway with not all facilities operational at the time of stay. The rooms were kept tidy and the hotel is generally clean, with a few maintenance aspects that could do with sorting out. Staying with the discount voucher however, was decent value for money. Well situated just a little way... More

For an overnight stay before moving on up the Garden Route from Cape Town, we had a very comfortable and quiet stay at the Wilderness Hotel. The front desk staff were helpful and we didn't have any hassles at all. Being so close to a few good restaurants was great as it is adds the stay. Will definitely consider going... More

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.

What a special weekend my daughter and I had at the Wilderness hotel. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. We loved our spotless room and the closeness of the restaurants to the hotel....so safe to walk to there and back late at night. Fell in love with Wilderness and the walks along the lake. 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 for two nights and wished we could lengthen our holiday but unfortunately had to go back to reality. We stayed in a pool facing room with a king size bed ans space for two small / teenage children which we do not have. Very comfortable but the tv was old fashioned; therefore they moved us to a lake... More

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
