Excellent service. The manager jonel was in a class of her own. Exceptionally passionate about customer service and never rested until the guests were more than happy. Breakfast was great and good value for money

We spent a night at the Wilderness Hotel on route to Cape Town. What a pleasure. We were upgraded to a lakeview room with loads of space. Very helpful reception staff and a pleasant walk into village for dinner. Plenty of good restaurants to choose from. Will definitely stay there again.

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
