Welcome to the Garden Route's oldest and best-loved Hotels! With a grand tradition as honeymoon spot, family hotel and a tourist and business destination, it's steeped in tradition and it's got a warm, old-style charm. But it's also a modern hotel with all the facilities you need - The 150-bedroom property boasts a beauty spa, two swimming pools, a bowling green, two tennis courts, a squash court, putt-putt and six banqueting halls and conference rooms. We are situated almost in the centre of the Garden Route - 45 minutes' drive to both Mossel Bay and Knysna, less than an hour to Oudtshoorn in the Klein Karoo. Not to mention 300 meters from golden beaches, surrounded by indigenous forests and striking lagoons. It's a Mecca for sport and adventures and Wilderness is part of the unfenced Garden Route National Park - with some of the world's most popular walks and trails. All of this makes The Wilderness Hotel perfect for niche markets like birders, mountain bikers, golfers and for tour companies too, of course.

Good bedding. Quiet nights rest. Staff a little noisy early morning outside. Beautiful place / setting. Friendly staff. Average breakfast. Place needs a lick of paint and carpets look old. Great value for money though

Enjoyed the surroundings. Food and diningroom service good .Accommodation a little disappointing. My wife was using a walker and found the distance to room very tiring.Despite this, the reception could not offer us rooms any closer to the dining room etc
