Great guesthouse run by Gerald and J-D, two of the most friendly, wecoming hosts you could wish to meet. They were so helpful in suggesting to us where we should visit. Tenikwa where we walked with cheetahs was the highlight. Les Girls restaurant is a must.The guesthouse was beautifully furnished offering superb accommodation and a delicious breakfast.

Such a great stop driving the garden route. Quieter and a bit hidden away, but one of the most beautiful places. The guest house was very homely and the rooms were beautiful. The owners/hosts were so hospitable and helped us make the most of our stay in wilderness manor. They recommended a great walk, waterfall and views to visit and... More

Gerald and JD are the best Hosts one can ever hope for. We have been there many times and keep coming back because of the uncompromising quality. Their standards never drop. The two of them really go out of their way to make sure our stay is enjoyable. Well done again guys.

Attention to every detail characterised our stay with JD and Gerald. The room was spacious and beautiful with a delightful view of the lagoon. Gerald spent considerable time telling us about the places to visit, which was excellent as we didn't have much time. Our breakfast was exceptional with poached eggs delivered exactly as requested. However, above all this was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Almost halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on the internationally renowned Garden Route and nestled between mountains and golden beaches, you will find one of South Africa's most favoured holiday destinations, the seaside village of Wilderness. Wilderness Manor is an elegant and refined guest house overlooking the beautiful Wilderness Lagoon, in the heart of the scenic village of Wilderness. Step out of the front door and cross the road onto the boardwalk for an easy and safe stroll to beaches, restaurants and village shops. Relax in the spacious guest lounge or reading lounge, with superb views from the balconies overlooking the lagoon. Wilderness Manor is luxuriously decorated in an African colonial style with fine oriental rugs, heirlooms, antiques, art and collectables which contribute to a refined and stylish ambience. Retire to the serenity of four stylish en-suite bedrooms: three luxury and spacious lagoon facing rooms on the second floor with superb views of the lagoon and one standard garden room on the ground floor with a private garden / patio. Look forward to our Continental buffet and English breakfast served in our breakfast room, opening onto a sunny balcony overlooking the indigenous forest where the Knysna Loerie often comes to feed... Whether you are passionate about water sports, hiking, extreme adventure or animal encounters, the Garden Route and Klein Karoo has something for you. CHILD POLICY: Wilderness Manor is not suitable for infants and children younger than 12 years of age. ... more   less
