The guest house it tastefully decorated, and makes you feel at... More

Gerald and JD could not have been better hosts - from the start of our 2 night stay until departure they attended to all our needs with total professionalism. Unfortunately the sun was nowhere to be seen on our full day at Wilderness but having access to 2 superb lounges in the Guest House made our stay most enjoyable. Breakfasts... More

I last stayed here in February 2013 year and couldn't wait to return. It is still as perfect as ever and it was lovely to see Gerald and JD again. This is deservedly number 1. Such attention to detail in every way, simply wonderful.

We spent an amazing 3 days in Wilderness. Our stay at Wilderness Manor was so relaxing and lovely. Our hosts were so very gracious and hospitable. They took care of us beyond our expectations.

Thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and night in your Guest House. The room was clean, well furnished and impressive and the breakfast the following morning was excellent. I can't think of any material improvements but would suggest that you consider advertising in Discovery Health and similar magazines where the Manor Guest House could be seen as a component... More

Highly recommended for a few nights stopover on The Garden Route. Great atmosphere and wonderful service from Gerald and JD. Everything is beautifully presented. Watch the birdlife (sunbirds, touracos and more) at breakfast.
