We had a lovely stay. The self-catering apartment was spacious, cosy and we had everything we needed. We were welcomed with coffee and rusks, lamps during load shedding were provided and in general, very hospitable. Great location as close to the beach. Thank you for everything!

Went on holiday to Wilderness, and decided to stay over in Witsand. After taking the wrong turnoff we traveled 50km dirt road. We were received at the Whale Watchers in by a very friendly lady. I by accident booked a room with 2 single beds, but she gave us a room with a double bed. The rooms are clean and... More

Comfortable, good breakfast, frienly hosts, close to the beach, price ok. There are B&B and self-catering units. The whole village is great for people who like a rather quiet life, walks on the beach etc.

Wanted to give this 4.5 as it is a little faded jem. I had a nice, comfortable, clean if slightly old fashioned room at the front with a partial ocean view. Staff and owners were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Enjoyed all the birds in the garden. Very short walk to the beach and a little further to restaurants...

It is difficult to write about our visit, because it lasted less than 24 hours, the weather was not the greatest and the restaurant recommended for dinner was disappointing. Anyway . . . As there was no response to the bell we went straight to our room as reserved to do what arriving travellers do and shortly after met our... More

We were warmly greeted by Clair and her husband, who offered us coffee after our trip. We are so impressed with the cleanliness, it is a pleasure to walk into such a neat room, but we were boxed in, the room was extremely hot with no fresh air or a breeze flowing through. The beds were two twins pushed together... More

Discovered a simple yet full of ambience restaurant whilst staying at the Whale Watchers Inn in Witsand. What the kids and i loved, was that this restaurant is right on the beach. Prices are quite reasonable and there's a little shop next door which sells snacks and ice cream. The beach itself is known as the 'Nursery for whales'. It... More
