We've always driven through Wilderness en-route to other destinations and have always wanted to stay there. We did in February on the way back to Cape Town while on a road trip from Durban.
We stayed at the Boardwalk Lodge - perched on the hill overlooking Wilderness.
It was a wonderful experience and an amazing place to stay. We arrived on a Sunday after driving from Addo Elephant, and as things go the trip dragged out and we arrived later than our planned ETA. We did advise them of this on route but there was absolutely no problem with this though - the lady at reception couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful despite her Sunday afternoon being spoiled waiting for us.
We were in one of the self-catering cabins at the top - 152 steps but well worth it! - and the views are amazing. One sees the village below, the beach and coastline and the lakes spread out below. The unit was well appointed with everything we needed and was serviced daily.
All the staff we met - from the porter to the Marketing, Sales and Guest Relations manager Mariana - were ultra friendly and went out of their way to provide assistance of any kind and local info which certainly enhanced our stay.
We have a three year old and enjoyed the pool and exploring the area with her and again the staff went out of their way to interact and assist us in every way.
We had a great time and will definitely be going back to enjoy the warmth and hospitality of the people and this stunning lodge.
