Tucked away at the end of a private road and right on the lagoon's edge, this 4-star lodge is a private paradise in the charming village of Wilderness.
Score from 52 reviews Excellent
Supremely comfortable bed and great staff: every person I met was welcoming and helpful.
Decor was a bit shabby - needed a coat of paint, new or cleaned carpets.
Proximity to the river.
The decor of the hotel both in the rooms and out are outdated.
Situated along the Touw river. Near the beach.
Extremely old furniture and fittings. Rooms are mouldy. Bathroom has old fittings +- 18years with debris build-up inbetween the tiling.
Peaceful and stunning surrounds. Eden Adventures
Staff uninformed. Arrived wt 11.00 am room only prepared at 9.00 pm after 3 reminders. Restaurant menu - half of what was on the menu was unavailable, dirtbins outside never emptied
5 in the afternoon the room on check in day ,was not made up
We were so dissapointed that we did not even book in , we left as this hotel is for backpackers
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.
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.
Bad service , and dirty.
The location and view was breath taking. Waking up to the bird chirping and the sound of the river was amazing.
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
Value for money.
Mainly the location.
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.
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.
Our booking made through bookings.com was not picked up on the hotel's system when we arrived.
The hotel looks nice from the main road. The fireplace at the bar-area. The lady at reception was helpful.
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!
View of river & breakfast buffet.
2km from Wilderness
I booked with booking.com and some how they messed it up , i dont know who but after a long trip with a small child i was send from one reoom to another. I even paid more than the rates that applied for the evening. Breakfast and staff amazing
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.
Good location very peaceful but Hotel is looking a little tired
The view, was all! The breakfast was presentable.
For the expense it was a rip off!. It's an old hotel posing as a new one. Three stars! I wold not even give it one star. No room service, the beds have never been renewed, one could smell sweat in them, The pillows wear thread bare and stank! The bathroom shower curtain was covered with mold! As well as the grouting in the batch tiles. The shower head left much to be desired. Really a very unpleasant experience!
Staff very helpful & friendly.
Lunch & Dinner menu. Needs to be rethought.
The live band and outside bar
Great accommodation, good price, lovely atmosphere, good food and friendly service. Have highly recommended to friends and family.
On the river-beautiful. Staff very friendly. Facilities for use on river.
No fan or aircon in room! Middle of December! Many lights out in the corridor-poor maintenance
The surrounding, the position
The old hotel room, the rooms are furnished very poorly. The river facing rooms look a lot better.
