Simple, relaxed and closer to the dam than the beach....this little place was good value for money. Helpful staff and close to everything (not that anything in Wilderness is far). Clean and breakfasts were good. Overall a nice place to stay for a few nights if you want to check out Wilderness and don't want to pay the high prices for the beachfront places.
Wilderness itself is just plain amazing! One of my fav places on the garden route - and I think it has better food than Knysna!
