Our stay overnight en route to PE was very pleasant. The hotel had a private function that night so it was a bit noisy but not too bad. Room, shower was a bit dated but generally very nice facilities. mini-bar fridge was very noisy! I switched it off and it wet the entire floor.

One day in Wilderness city and a very interesting experience in its 'named' hotel. Location, rooms, breakfast and services in general pleased us very much. And, mainly, the day rate is not so expensive, about US$ 45,00 for each one. Indeed, we had a very good time.

Old family room compared to the other rooms of the family with a bad smell of urine. I would be embarrassed to offer guests such a room. But the dinner (buffet) and breakfast was ok. The beach is nearby.

On our recent trip from KZN to the Cape we spent two nights at the Wilderness Hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the buffet breakfast was good. But once they have completed there renovations, I am sure it will be a far nicer establishment. Let me add that the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed at the Wilderness hotel and the service was okay. Initially was booked into a family room which turned not to have a good bathroom,but after being moved to another good room. We had a good time.

The rooms were very good. The bathrooms too. The noise levels were very low although our room was about next to the entrance. So if you choose rooms away from the front entrance then it should be very quiet. A very nice hotel.

Thank you so much for making the effort and commenting on our Hotel. Really appreciate you input on noise level and hope it would encourage guests to contact Hotels directly to be informed about location of room. As we are quite a huge property, with different room types and wings I think it can be very useful information for a... More

We enjoyed our 1 night stay in the very comfortable room facing the lagoon. We enjoyed the roaring fire in the lounge area in the late evening. Front desk staff were very accommodating and helpful. Lovely atmosphere.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review - we sincerely appreciate your kind words about our friendly girls at reception. It's a privilege working with these ladies that just keeps on smiling day after day, especially with this cold weather currently in our area. And the fire place in the lounge really helps.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
