we chose Cinnamon Boutique Guest House because we prefer smaller establishments with a personal touch to large, brash impersonal hotels. Also because Wilderness is, in our opinion, much more attractive than nearby Knysner. As soon as we walked in we were made to feel very welcome with a choice of complementary drinks. The first impression is one of space, light,... More

We chose this guest house based on online reviews and were not disappointed. We had driven the 5 hours from Cape Town and were delighted to be met with a cold beer and a room upgrade! Our superior room (room 5) was fantastic. A huge and very comfortable bed, 2 balconies to sit on and enjoy a glass of wine... More

Thank you for writing such a warm review. It was really nice meeting such well traveled and down to earth people as you are. It was lovely conversing over a drink and getting to know things about the big city live. We were delighted to offer you room 5 not even knowing your future plans! We hope that you would... More

This was our 7th visit to Cinnamon, and I have reviewed this glorious oasis favourably before. New owners took over early in 2014, since the last time we stayed there, so we had some concern that one of our favourite places might not be the same. No worries. There have been useful improvements to the bedrooms, but not many other... More

This was a last minute booking (3pm on the day) and I did it because of the tripadvisor reviews - what a gem! The Hotel and grounds are beautiful - I felt myself relax the moment I went in the door. We were greeted with warm handtowels and complementary drinks. The rooms are light, contemporary, spacious and very well appointed.... More

We had a delightful stay at this guest house in Wilderness. It was great from the start where on our arrival we were greeted with a cold beverage and cool washcloths. We had a suite with two decks that looked out over the pool and into the woods. It was very peaceful and relaxing to just hang out there but... More

Returning to Wilderness after a little safari, we found the Wilderness on Sea guest house to be full, so we tried the lovely Rhoda's other establishment, the Cinnamon. It really was a small 5 star hotel! Just behind the village centre, it has been cleverly built into folds of the hill, so that it is 4 minutes down to the... More

CINNAMON I only spent one night at this haven of tranquillity in Wilderness and wished I had had more time to spend there. Cinnamon is surrounded by beautiful lush trees and shrubs with one side adjoining the bird sanctuary. I was entranced by the calm, and by the understated space, luxury and design of the ground floor public areas. The... More

After a long but beautifully scenic drive from Cape Town we were welcomed at Cinnamon firstly by its lush location, set on the gentle slopes of a hill, just minutes from the village of Wilderness. There is ample secure parking and this truly is an oasis, with the sound of the nearby stream and birdsong emphasising the feeling of un... More

Our trip to Wilderness was made complete when we chanced upon Cinnamon, a beautiful guest house.
