This is a really amazing place. Nice spacious and clean rooms. Lovely and easygoing tenants.
The best is the view on the wilderness lagoon. Simply amazing!

I echo every positive word said already about this jewel of a place! If only we could have stayed longer than the one night! The views were stunning and the whole atmosphere was one of peacefulness and calm. The hosts could not have been better. I cant wait to plan my return trip.
Value for money. Central position. Great hosts. Stunning view.
What more can I say!!

A lovely guesthouse overlooking the beautiful waters of Wilderness. Kevin and Elsie are very welcoming and make a lovely breakfast! It's an excellent place to base yourself if you want to explore the area.

Our stay at Interlaken was amazing! A romantic getaway with a difference. The view of the lake and mountains was out of this world. Our room was spacious, quiet and oh so comfortable. And when you wake...a breakfast fit for a king. It's seldom you get it all in one affordable package. Our hosts were a barrel of laughs too! I highly recommend a visit to this magical place.

The initial drive to Interlaken disguises what an amazing (and positive!) shock to the system the fantastic views over the lake and surrounding landscape has on it's guests! This, combined with the warm welcome and friendliness of the hosts, Kevin and Elsie, makes this a great place to stay if you are heading through Wilderness, and want somewhere for a couple of nights or even a week.
We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed not only the views, the hospitality and the relaxed breakfasts on the terrance, but also great walking in the surrounding area, plus the beach that went on for miles!
Staying at New Year meant that we didn't get the opportunity to test some of the better resturants in the area, and it was probably quieter than we normally have, but this was more than made up for by waking on New Year's day to the vista from our balcony!
Clean, welcoming, friendly - we would totally recommend this guest house on many fronts, and apart from having to drive to places (which is the same most places in SA it seems), there is nothing to disappoint.
A really good option and somewhere we would re-visit in a heartbeat!

We stayed at the Interlaken guest house on the Garden Route for three nights in December 2008 as part of a trip between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. It is a great place to stay, a little out of Wilderness which itself is an attractive little town. Kevin and Elsie Cook made us very welcome, the views from the room over the inland lagoon were superb, the breakfasts excellent and we would recommend the Interlaken to anyone passing this way on the Garden Route.
