We took our daughter to Fairy Knowe Hotel for a few days and to the water fall. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean and tidy. Great breakfast. Would stay again as it great value for money and very central to all activities in the garden route.

We only just had a sleepover (B&B experience) We honestly can not review the amenities other than the splendid view over the vlei and a good night's rest. The bathroom tilework needs attention as do the mouldy ceiling above the bed.

Lovely relaxing stay in generous accommodation of the old days right in the heart of the Wilderness lakes. Perfect for getting away from it all! Lots to do in the area including adventure sports for those who enjoy that sort of thing.

The check in was effortless and friendly although they were a bit confused about the payment as I've paid through Agoda. This kind of thing needs to be sorted out prior to the guests arrival. The overall feeling was that the rooms and hotel in general needs to be updated. I can imagine it had it's heydays in the '70s...

Like I said I do believe the rooms need a revamp. I did enjoy my stay but believe if you have improved rooms your ratings would improve. The site is amazing and staff all friendly. Have a great day and good value for money. cheers

Value for money in a lovely setting. Make sure you book a river view room which has a balcony. The main hotel does not compare quite as well. Very helpful and friendly reception. Will definitely re book for our 2018 road trip.

Very reasonable rates, but the hotel needs a lot of maintenance and modernisation. The room however was clean and very comfortable. We had a lovely view over the river. Close proximity to many good restaurants too.

The hotel has lots of potential especially as a (weekend) family destination. Unfortunately it is worn down and very dirty. The sheets and pillows were very old and smelly even new linen was on top. Needs to be renovated urgently! Breakfast is good.

All I can say is that we would go back again in a heart beat. The interiors are a bit dated, but other than that - the experience was exactly what we needed and wanted. The people, the place, the situation, the service, the value for money - could not want for more. Thank you to each one who made...
