Stayed here in March 2015 for two nights as a getaway from Cape Town for the weekend. We arrived late on a Friday night after a long drive from Cape Town. 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

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

My experience with Waterside Lodge was great. As someone said it deserves 4 stars, not 3. The room was spacious with huge comfortable bed, tea, coffee, wines, TV. Breakfast was good with decent coffee. The owners are very friendly. I would definitely stay there again!
