You guys are great. Your B&B was over the top beautiful and comfortable. Our only problem was that we could only stay one night. You knew the great restaurants and got us a reservations at "The Girls" which was sensational. The views from your place are great and great walking paths/boardwalks wer jus out the door.

The Wilderness Manor lies a little bit off Wilderness but therefore it is very quiet and peaceful. The walk into the center is beautiful and relaxing. The two "boys" are very friendly and we felt immediately at home.

Our bedroom was enormous with a lovely big bathroom, a lounge area and balcony overlooking the lagoon. The hosts were a delightful couple who couldn't do enough for you. The attention to...

Wilderness Manor is in a wonderful location with beautiful spacious rooms overlooking the lagoon and within walking distance of the centre. The recent refurbishment has been done to a very high standard and the bedroom and bathroom were stylish and grand. The large windows and patio doors make the most of the gorgeous view. The hosts are determined that guests...

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
