Stopped off in Wilderness whilst touring the garden route with my mom. Had booked in just a double room but as it was nearing the end of the season and they had a self catering unit available they upgraded us for very little extra. Was definitely worth it. We were due to have one room but instead ended up with a double room each (both en suite with fantastic "rain" style showers), a kitchen, living room (very spacious - over 2 layers) and balcony (there was also one for each bedroom). Included a bbq. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast served every morning.
Only downsides - wireless did not stretch to our lodge (I was writing my thesis at the time so would have been useful - instead had to go to the main lodge when needed). Also we had some washing done when there that they forgot to charge us for and they emailed and requested we pay. Was fine but not sure it was worth them bothering as was only about £5! But was not really an issue. Also main door opens onto 1st bedroom so keep in mind if going as two couples.
Was a fantastic hideout, built into the hillside and a wonderful place for a holiday. Was very sad to leave. Would highly recommend to all friends and family and would go back.
Would not recommend for disabled travellers as lots of steps to climb to get to room (did have help with our bags though).
