green swimming pool and the garden is not well taken care of. The place has a great potential, it just need to be taken care of. Maintenance maintenance!!!
Staff especially resturant staff, breakfast, location and comfort of their bed.

It was my 17 year anniversary and I arranged for a good room and flowers for my wife. I was told that it would be ok but they do not do anything for anniversaries. Although our children [4 & 2 years] loved it, the general feeling for me and my wife is that it was not clean. we had to ask the staff to change the bedding of my children and clean their room as the room and the bedding had a odour that smelled unclean. the bicycles we arranged through our booking was a disaster. we were told to fetch it at the shed and they were all broken. we love the Wilderness area and therefore we made the most of enjoying our stay. for the past 17 years I have always wanted to stay at the Fairy Knowe and I expected more than a camping experience. I arranged on booking out a nice room for 1st - 5th January 2016, however I have had no response since.
The location was excellent and the breakfast in the morning was very good. I will return as the location and venue is very peaceful

Decor was a bit shabby - needed a coat of paint, new or cleaned carpets.
Supremely comfortable bed and great staff: every person I met was welcoming and helpful.

Extremely old furniture and fittings. Rooms are mouldy. Bathroom has old fittings +- 18years with debris build-up inbetween the tiling.
Situated along the Touw river. Near the beach.

The hotel is very dated and could do with a refresh, especially the bathrooms. One of our rooms wasn't ready at 8pm so that was a bit of a let down. No fans, never mind aircon in the rooms so be warned, it is hot and sticky. Wifi only available in the main hotel building and then at extremely slow speeds.
For the rate charged this was a basic but acceptable stay, I wasn't expecting 5* luxury. Breakfast is included so value for money was ok. The staff are generally friendly and helpful.

Bad service , and dirty.

The room was a little boring. The TV was very small and the channels did not work. The cleaning staff tended to forget to give us toilet paper and towels, which was annoying. The breakfast was ok except for the eggs that were oily not nice. Staff was ok
The location and view was breath taking. Waking up to the bird chirping and the sound of the river was amazing.

Booked via booking.com, stated that breakfast was included in room rate but we were questioned. Insufficient towels for family room, no glasses, kettle or cutlery. My partner has stayed on numerous occasions previously but noticed a drop in customer service standards, will consider alternative accommodation in future unfortunately.
Mainly the location.

Our booking made through bookings.com was not picked up on the hotel's system when we arrived.
Love the location and the view from our room. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a hearty breakfast in spite of a power outage.

Poorly managed and rundown one star establishment. It fails to conform to the primary purpose of a hotel, i.e. to provide a resting place for guests.They struggled to find me ONE extra blanket. We were woken up by the noisy staff arriving at 6am. The place needs major renovations and new furniture!
The hotel looks nice from the main road. The fireplace at the bar-area. The lady at reception was helpful.

The old world charm; the relaxed atmosphere; the great choice for breakfast; the huge room overlooking the river; the lovely grounds; Location not walkable into village of Wilderness but this is not a criticism as most people would have a car anyway. The drive to the hotel is pretty along the side of the river.
