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

What a lovely place. The Sunbird Suite where we stayed is just awsome. Lovely owners, Nora and Bert, they make you feel at home. Everything is tops: Service,Food, Breakfast, Atmosphere, Staff, Dogs - just everything. Can recommend them to anybody, and we will be back for sure!! Thanks Nora and team for a wonderful experience.

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!

We stayed here for 3 nights as a stop off point while doing the Garden route and can highly recommend it. The service and hospitality was excellent. On one of the days we had to leave before breakfast (5:00am) so the host (Nora) was up early enough to pack us an excellent breakfast complete with coolbox and left it outside... More

My daughter and her three children, my husband and I, plus my precious dashhound stayed at this most wonderful lodge. We had wonderful service and hospitality in spite of the fact that the owner (Nora) was on her own for the week-end. The rooms were very comfortable with all the extras. Everything worked great. My dog had friendly dogs to... More
