Had the most wonderful stay at Waterside Lodge B&B! It is conveniently located, walking distance from the village and the beach. The Sunbird Suite is beautiful, clean, private and the breakfast was out of this world! Nora was very considerate and helpful during load shedding, making sure that we had extra lights. Another big bonus: I could travel with my... More

Very friendly hostess! Excellent breakfast! Nice room! The accommodation is in walking distance to the beautiful beach. We were there in the winter season and it was cold that day, the room was nice and warm when we arrived. The owner is going the extra mile to make your stay comfortable.

The owner stated up and waited for us to offer us a drink when we arrived - really appreciated and very nice woman. Stayed in the Honeymoon (Sunbird) Suite,... More

We took advantage of the honeymoon suite, you know you are never too old for romance!! This was a chalet in the pretty garden. The theme was African. A huge bed, great double bath. Lots of lovely extras. Nora is a most welcoming host who mixes the best Campari and orange juice. There is a very nice swimming pool, free... More

Wilderness feels like a small little village which is starting to get popular with tourists. We stayed in the Hadida Ibis room, during our drive along the Garden Route for our honeymoon, en-route from Cape Town to Knysna. - Very spacious and comfortable room, extremely well decorated - Breakfast was simply awesome, a lot of effort was put for everything...

On the whole a very pleasant 2 night stay. I would say the best thing about Waterside Lodge is Nora, the very hands on owner. She offered me a drink when I arrived and was available to answer questions. It was very conveniently situated for the beach/nature reserve/town. The Lodge was very clean and a lot of attention to detail... More
