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...

We only stayed for one night before flying out early the following day, however if we had time we would have happily stayed for longer. Lovely views over the town and the ocean from the lodge and handily located for the Map of Africa viewpoint.

We initially booked a 1 bedroom room which turned out to be a studio, although very nice was not as expected. On request, we were moved to a 1 bedroom chalet which was great. The long climb up to the chalet was well worth it, there was a huge deck area overlooking Wilderness and the sea. The chalet was very... More

We stayed here for the last two nights of our honeymoon and what a fantastic way to end our trip. The staff were amazingly helpful and extremely professional. The breakfasts are just fantastic. The extra services they provide are extremely thoughtful. I just absolutely love this place, would most definitely come back.

climbed the 150 steps and entered a really superb accomodation with deck yawning over the most awesome views . Gas barbeque on the deck and cozy fireplace inside. Bed comfortable and porters and staff friendly and available. Excellent value - will be back again and again.

We stayed the last 2 nights of our trip at the lodge, the rooms are cozy, spacious and very clean. The view is very beautiful, we felt like we were in Tarzan's cabin. the breakfast was also great except for the coffee. Please check the coffee machine as the coffee is very weak and watery, we did notify our waiter.... More
