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

The owner is very kind. She received us, e.g., with a welcome drink and gave us two rooms for the choice. Besides, she recommended us for the dinner several great bars in Wilderness. With the breakfast she served to us to all only a really tasty and, besides, still fantastically looking fruit plate. Afterwards she prepared for us various eggs.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2013 in the Sunbird Suite. It was fantastic, Nora the owner was fantastic and was very welcoming on arrival giving us a drink and showing us to our suite. The grounds and the rooms are beautiful, you can relax by the pool area or in the gardens. You can also take chairs... More

Reluctant as I am to add my dissenting voice to the chorus of praise for this guest house, I fear that I must record our experience. Although both the room we stayed in and the bathroom were spacious and well appointed, the breakfast was a disappointment. The fruit platter was meager, consisting of a couple of grapes cut un quarters,... More

Lovely location facing the lagoon and off the main road, make this a peaceful guest house to hang your hat. A well tended and lush garden greets you, along with the owners friendly collie dog! We chose the Hadida Ibis room, which was very spacious and came with a large bathroom, king size bed and view over the deck and... More
