The unit has beautiful views of the ocean and is located within walking distance of the nearby shops and restaurants and within a short drive of the beaches. The breakfasts are lovely and the staff are very helpful.

We spent one night there (12.09.2016), room no. 13. The lady on the reception was friendly. You can’t check in before 1400 hours. The standard room we had was very small. Everything was humid, even the linen felt humid when we went to bed. The humid air is coming up from the ocean an you can hear the ocean as... More

We had a wonderful stay here. If you don't mind lots of steps....which we didn't but I imagine this might not suit everyone!We had a self catering studio which was actually very spacious with well equipped kitchen and lovely bathroom. Also the balcony/terrace was very private and the perfect place for a relaxing drink watching the sunset. Staff were very... More

Wir were so surprised about our wonderful room in Boardwalk Lodge. So excited about the view and the cosy, wooden Atmosphere . Unfortunately, we had bad weather and it was very cold in the room, but there were enough covers and two heaters which helped.

We spent 2 nights in the wonderful village of Wilderness at the Boardwalk Lodge. After a long walk up many stairs, we were greeted by fabulous views from our lodge. It was well equipped, particularly for people staying for long periods of time with cooking and barbecuing facilities for self-catering. The lodge was incredibly private and peaceful, close to the...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Boardwalk Lodge for three nights this past weekend. It was delightful. We stayed in chalet 12 which meant a good few steps but worth every step for the view. The lodge is well kept. We had everything we needed. A lovely gas fire, DSTV so we could watch the Olympics after getting... More

Boardwalk Lodge was recommended to us by the Wilderness Tourism office - we wish they had not. Admittedly our two luxury rooms were comfortable and well appointed with beautiful panoramic views overlooking both mountains and sea. But, when you are staying in a highly rated establishment you expect the best. The sophisticated shower console's bottom massage jet was leaking so... More

What a beautiful log cabin with panoramic views. We loved to listen to the ocean while we sat on the deck sipping on wine. Very well equipped for self catering, with a gas fireplace, microwave, toaster, stove, fridge, gas braai, tv with a wide range of channels as well as a radio. There is also a heater in the room...
