Would like to give Wilderness 4.5 as it was nearly just right when we stayed for 2 nights in February. We were in the separate wooden chalet at the rear of the property which suited us down to the ground. Good size room with good bathroom. Very comfortable but slightly dark. There is a lovely sitting area outside though and... More

We stayed in the sunbird suite which is beautiful and private away from other guests. Sadly the room had a very strange smell to it, which even with prolonged opening of all the windows and doors would not dissipate. It smelled like a mixture of cleaning supplies and faintly like urine, which is why this place gets a reduced rating.... More

We stayed here on our way to Cape Town from Port Elizabeth on Garden Route for 2 nights. It was too short stay for us to enjoy here. Wilderness is a small town, however it has a SPAR supermarket, Liquor store and some nice restaurants and beach is just walking distance less than 5 minutes. Restaurant, Blue Olive, serve Chucked...

We had the beautiful Sunbird suite with a great view of the lagoon.The room and bathroom was well fitted, though the DSTV was not working in the room. Fortunately we had broufht enough entertainment to keep our young daughter entertained. Off road parking is available for 3 cars. Two parking bays are next to each other and it's difficult entering... More

Deon is most accommodating and assisted in organising a canoe ride to the waterfalls, incl. a picnic basket. All staff members were most friendly, the rooms spacious, the beds very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! The gorgeous dogs Bill & Boo rounded it off perfectly for us!

Had the most wonderful stay at Waterside Lodge B&B! It is conveniently located, walking distance from the village and the beach. The Sunbird Suite is beautiful, clean, private and the breakfast was out of this world! Nora was very considerate and helpful during load shedding, making sure that we had extra lights. Another big bonus: I could travel with my... More

Very friendly hostess! Excellent breakfast! Nice room! The accommodation is in walking distance to the beautiful beach. We were there in the winter season and it was cold that day, the room was nice and warm when we arrived. The owner is going the extra mile to make your stay comfortable.

Stayed here in March 2015 for two nights as a getaway from Cape Town for the weekend. We arrived late on a Friday night after a long drive from Cape Town. The owner stated up and waited for us to offer us a drink when we arrived - really appreciated and very nice woman. Stayed in the Honeymoon (Sunbird) Suite,... More

We took advantage of the honeymoon suite, you know you are never too old for romance!! This was a chalet in the pretty garden. The theme was African. A huge bed, great double bath. Lots of lovely extras. Nora is a most welcoming host who mixes the best Campari and orange juice. There is a very nice swimming pool, free... More
