From the minute you walk in the door you feel welcome and taken care of. Elsabe and Martin take great care to make this a spectacular 5 star experience. Every little detail was beautiful and thoughtful. They have canoes on the property for your use and is a must if you are staying there. The breakfast was delicious and made for us an hour before regular breakfast time, since we had a morning activity. They were really accomadating to us and even gave us some fruit as a snack when we left. The five star chef is not to be missed!
The food, the location and the staff!
-High standards of premises and staff -Availability of canoes to go on the river -Quality of breakfast
-size of tv (hardly relevant)
Beautiful guest house in all aspects. We also had dinner prepared by Lizzle - very nice. Well worth a break to relax and recharge.
The friendliness and helpfullness of the staff where they were even willing to provide a sandwich and tea to us outside breakfast times
Wonderful hosts, wonderful restaurant, wonderful location!
The beds are the most comfortable on the Garden Route! The showers have been recently upgraded and were roomy and very clean! The view over the lagoon provides interest at any time of day. Hosts were knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions.
Wonderful welcoming hosts, excellent facilities & top class gourmet dining & wine pairing in the restaurant. A food experience not to be missed.
A perfect place to rest, relax and enjoy an amazing dinner, loved the wine-pairing !
Great little hotel right on a the lake. Lovely bedroom, multi-award winning restaurant and easy location for the beach or nature walks.
small guesthouse where you feel at home. Excellent dinner
The restaurant, the hosts, the room, the balcony overlooking the river, breakfast, taking their canoes out and finding a river turtle. This place was an unexpected gem.
The bathroom was quite small and the terrace was shared with other guests but these are such minor things in the scheme of such a wonderful place
Very welcoming hosts who directed us to the various walks and local features. We enjoyed canoeing on the lagoon from the back garden. The food was fantastic, both dinner in the restaurant and the breakfasts. A lovely spot.
Loved the restaurant and not having to drive afterwards. Friendly hosts.
Great hospitality, Top notch restaurant! Great food, Michelin star level.
Great, very personal service and best breakfast on our journey.beautiful view, overlooking the river. And the outstanding, amazing restaurant is worth a whole travel!!!
The owner and staff was very friendly and helpful. Great view over the river. Nice breakfast with yoghurt, fresh fruit, bread, pancakes, croissants etc.
Breakfast was superb. Rooms were lovely with nice shared patio area outside overlooking the garden and river. Hosts were very helpful. We only stayed 2 nights but Wilderness is an excellent central base for visiting lots of towns and attractions on the Garden Route. We ate in the restaurant both nights of our stay, food is superb.
We liked the position and the facilities offered and the willingness of the staff and proprietor to make us feel at home
We thought the dinner was overblown and fussy, I like to choose my own wine and thought the wine served was not what I would have chosen, (I am a Burgundy man not a Bordeaux man and that which was served was a Bordeaux style Cabernet Sauvignon blend. When will restaurateurs learn that people (who are not food snobs) like a little more substance than a decorated plate.
Lovely guest house and superb restaurant. Dinner & breakfast were both outstanding and without doubt the best we ate during our 2 weeks holiday in January. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for the charming hosts and they went out of their way to make our time there so very memorable.
Nothing to dislike
Beautiful tranquil setting overlooking the river. Lovely view from the bedroom. Delicious breakfast with plenty of freshly baked goodies to more than wet the appetite.
Excellent location. Warm & friendly place. Comfortable rooms. Balcony overlooking river is good place to relax. Good walks nearby. Absolutely delicious haute cuisine produced by Lizelle for dinner in the restaurant whilst Rudolf is a brilliant & entertaining host!
Dinners in the restaurant have to be paid for separately from accommodation. Lack of shaving point in bathroom.
