We planned our trip to Wilderness as an overnighter to be close to George airport and we left wanting to go back for a longer trip to explore the local area and relax. The location is wonderful and very peaceful.The rooms look out onto a lagoon and we enjoyed walking at night to the "downtown" area for dinner. The rooms... More

This is an absolute gem to stay at. The hosts are great and have great attention to detail. The artifacts and guest house are immaculate and of great taste. The hosts are amazing people and spoil you rotten from the moment you enter their manor.

Whilst the property, room and features of this guest house were excellent, it was the hosts Gerald and JD, that made this a truly fabulous place to stay. Their welcoming and caring nature made us feel very special and almost like long lost friends. They were so friendly and went out of their way to make sure that everything was... More

I've stayed here twice. Both times were impeccable. Incredible hosts, unsurpassed attention to details and extremely well priced for what you get. Both times I stayed in the garden room, so comfortable. Will always remember the bustling birdlife in the garden. Delicious breakfasts! Very classy and posh. Can't fault it.

We stayed overnight here and really enjoyed it. Gerald our host was very friendly and helpful. It is in a great location opposite the lagoon and away from the busy main road. Very easy to find. Very comfortable too. Watching the sunbirds feeding at breakfast was an added bonus.

The hosts at Wilderness Manor were superb. Their attention to detail was great and the breakfast was divine. We had a wonderful relaxing time at the house and enjoyed the stunning views of the lagoon and sea.

Staying at Wilderness Manor on this trip was no different to the other three occasions, when we received a warm and friendly welcome from Gerald and JD always make us feel as though we are coming home. The accommodation decor is tasteful and comfortable, and we always enjoy the lovely view of the lagoon from the window whatever the weather.... More

My husband & I along with our brother & sister in law spent one wonderful week in January 2015 @ Wilderness Manor. This was our second consecutive visit. There are so many reasons to stay here (lovely large rooms, wonderful amenities, absolutely delicious breakfast) but I am certain that guests return without a doubt because of Gerald & JD. They...
