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...

We were just driving thru and stayed only one night - but had we known just how comfortable this B&B was, and how nice the owners are we would have stayed longer! It is situated right on the lagoon - close enough to walk into town and just far away enough to feel more like the country. The breakfast was... More

The service, attention to detail and hospitality we experienced during our stay were beyond compare. Breakfast every morning was a feast. With so much to do in the area and top quality restaurants within walking distance we had a fantastic holiday.

Gerald & JD are great hosts. Nothing seems too much trouble for them, and they genuinely seem to enjoy their business. Lovely accommodation, clean spacious rooms. Beautiful lounge, complimentary drinks in the evening, and great location with views of the lagoon. Our second stay with them, and have no hesitation in recommending Wilderness Manor.

I could really recommend Wilderness Manor Guest House to travellers who intend visiting this charming Garden Route destination. Rooms are spacious with meticulous attention to detail. The hosts are very helpful and go out of their way to make their guests feel at home. Breakfast was scrumptious! Our only complaint was that we were only able to spend one night... More

This is an amazing place to stay, The house is so interesting in its own right as the owners have such an eclectic collection of all sorts of things from their travels. The rooms are all at the top of the house, which means that they have views across the estuary. All the rooms are large and en-suite with all... More
