Day 1 arrival and parking was good, welcome juice was nice! Help with bags were welcomed after a long trip. Rooms are old and average but clean, beds are surprisingly good and king size offers you a little more. Service is good and room service menus is limited but good tasting

What was suppose to be a relaxing weekend endend in n nightmare!! False advertising made the weekend a real desaster! And the staff is not profesional in my opinion. Even after my spa session i could still not relax and enjoy a well deserved breakaway with friends

the Wilderness hotel stay was comfortable and staff were friendly. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. They would possibly update their menu and give more variety. The overall look of the hotel was nice, clean and tidy. Staff were friendly.

Had to wait in a que for at least 30 minutes to get two fried eggs. The so called "warm" food was ice cold and many of the dishes were empty. Only one staff member trying to make all guests breakfast.

Restaurant and location perfect! Food was good and service was professional. Squash Court needed attention though and Hotel Wifi was weak at our Room. At some times we felt that our privacy was a bit jeopardized due to people walking behind the braai section at the back of the unit.

We achieved what we set out to do - have a relaxing week-end away, and the Wilderness Hotel provided us with this - the room was comfortable with stunning views of all the elements, mountain, lagoon/lake/river and the sea in the distance - perfect combination

Good value for money. I did not feel like writing a long review. Maybe I should write about the extra charges on my bill when we checked out? Fortunately it has been sorted out before we left. We will stay there again.

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
