Very enjoyable stay. Nicely located and well priced. This was our first visit to the Wilderness and we found the hotel perfect for a short stay. We would consider coming back for a few more days sometime in the year.

The visit and setting was extremely peaceful, our room had a beautiful view of the river. While many rooms were occupied, the kitchen facilities were very limited, we visited town for meals and entertainment.

We returned for about the 5 time this year with the kids for a weekend getaway. The have refitted most of the hotel with a retro feel. We still love the laid back feel, fabulous setting, great value for money and all the kids activities. If you are looking for some quality time with the family and to relax this... More

This hotel, like Wilderness itself, has always been a special place for me. The rooms look a bit more modern after the revamp they had. There is no air conditioning, but this was not a problem. Beautiful view of the Touw river right outside the room's back door.

Weekend away. The location is lovely, situated on the river but the hotel itself needs a serious revamp. We changed our room as the original room was really drab and dingy and didn't smell too great. Went and stayed on the honeymoon suite which was larger and somewhat more modern and better maintained. Great breakfast in the morning but again... More

We had a wonderful time at the hotel. The old building dating back many years and the wonderful staff just made it an special experience. It offered everything we needed. It is well positioned for the tourist as there are so much to do and see minutes away from the hotel. We will visit again

What a lovely way to break our trip to Cape Town. Gorgeous surroundings and still so peaceful, quiet and homely. Stayed in one of the older rooms, but facing the river certainly makes up for the dated room.

We spent 4 nights at the FK hotel, just after the school holiday during January 2016. My wife and 2 year old son enjoyed the water facing room, the only issue was the mosquitoes and the lack of an air-conditioner in the room, even a fan would have helped - it was very hot!. The other amenities which we used... More

This hotel has location, and location. Decor is yester year and may rekindle memories of what your grandmother used have. It was a bit run down and needs tender loving care. The prices are very affordable and being on the river, canoe hire is a great way to spend the day exercising. Positive's about the hotel is that it is... More

I'm glad FK is doing a makeover - the hotel does look quite tired in many areas. However, the staff were anything but tired - very pleasant and helpful - we enjoyed our stay, and would probably go there again.
