We arrived at Wilderness Manor to a wonderful welcome which continued throughout our stay. The rooms were very comfortable, especially the beds, and there was so much attention to detail. The breakfast was plentiful and prepared with so much TLC that you could almost taste it! Location of the Manor was beautiful overlooking the lagoon and we would definitely recommend... More

What a delightful and genuine welcome we received from charming hosts. We were late booking and lucky to get the garden room; the others overlook the lagoon. But the garden room is lovely, we sat out and bird watched. Our hosts so kindly booked a restaurant for us, having established exactly what we wanted. A totally wonderful breakfast ended an... More

Great B&B to explore the environment. The owners are really open to share all their knowledge with travelers about South-Africa. They gave us great tips on how to proceed our way. The breakfast is outstanding, the rooms very clean and lots of light.

We stayed at Wilderness manor during the hight of peak season and you would expect the staff and owners to be stressed and over worked. We had the exact opposite experience, both JD and Gerald welcomed us with open arms and a refreshing drink! The manor is in exquisite condition and the rooms large and airy, but by far the... More

Our hosts, Gerald and JD were very gracious, warm and caring. It felt like a home away from home. Our room was wonderful and the breakfasts served absolutely scrumptious. Their attention to detail was impressive. Definitely the best place we have stayed at during our holiday on the Garden Route. Looking forward to our next visit!

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
