The Fairy Knowe Hotel is an institution. It has been around for such a long time, that the "Wilderness" has actually grown up and expanded around it. Whenever I intend to stay there - I always look at it as though I am moving into a National Monument. The hotel is old, and has only been updated as and when required. It is not a modern boutique style establishment. But you don't go expecting that. It is rather a country inn, with very old buildings, dirt roads, and old looking rooms and bathrooms. But that is what is special about the place. You don't go to the Wilderness to stay locked up in your room. You look for a place to sleep and shower - and then explore your surroundings. The hotel is right on the banks of the Touws River, with stunning surrounds and views. Perfect for tennis, swimming, rowing, paddling, etc. It has recently upgraded a wooden deck overlooking the river, and installed an outside bar and cafe for lunches and dinners. Awesome! The pub in the main building could have been plucked from anywhere in the UK! The breakfasts are hearty and wonderful - with everything you could need. The service, from staff who are part of the furniture - is always excellent and everyone is smiling. It's 100% a family hotel and a gem for infants, toddlers and kids. Very much geared for catering for little ones and makes parents feel comfortable no matter how loud the scremaing kids, nor how much food is flung and drinks are spilled. We will be back, as we are every year for a getaway that is always relaxing in possibly the most beautiful place on earth.
