Everything, especially breakfast
Very very friendly landlords. Always helpful. Great breakfast. You have to book the Sunbird Cottage. And enjoy what you get.
Everything was as agreed. Our son slept in the same room w/o extra charge. The hosts are great. The location is central but quiet and green.
Nora & Bert are most excellent hosts, the area at Wilderness is beautiful, accommodation was very comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. Good walking along the beach which is only 7/10 minutes away by foot.
Cannot say anything bad about Wilderness, it was perfect.
We stayed in the sunbird suite, perfectly located and very comfortable. Wilderness is getting a real buzz and feels comfortable and safe.
Very nice couple who made us feel welcome, We got a drink on our own patio and an upgrade to the zonnevogel suite which is a true experience, large spacious room, stunning bathroom. Beautiful garden, nice view, easy walking distance to restaurants. Excellent breakfast.
Nothing at all.
A welcoming, comfortable place with a lovely view, a wonderful breakfast, even my little dog loved it and had a great time with their dogs
There was nothing we disliked
The room was large with a good view. We were welcomed with a free drink and given sound advice on where to walk and eat. Breakfast was good. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Very friendly, excellent breakfast
Friendly welcome and service from the hostess.Loved the location, the setting and our balcony. Very pretty gardens and beautifully decorated bedrooms with an excellent shower. Solid breakfast, strong free wi-fi and a bonus to have a fridge in the room. Highlight would have to be the dogs, I think it's Billy and Boo. Would come again just for them.
Would have liked a better variety of tv channels for the price. Not a major thing, but the SABC is very poor.
Hospitality, hosts, area, garden, breakfast, dogs.
Loerie Cabin was very dark.
We really enjoyed our stay at Waterside Lodge and would love to come again some time.The situation was central for lots of sightseeing and walks , and the beach was fabulous.Our hosts made us feel very welcome and the two fabulous dogs kept us entertained each morning.
we had a great time, nothing to complain about !
This place is right on the beach. As an American, I didn't understand that lagoon (used in the description) is an offset of the beach. The sunbird bungalow was amazing and we stayed an extra night. Wonderful breakfast service as well.
Nora, the owner, was extremely pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean, large bathroom with separate shower and bath, garden was well looked after.
The room I had, Hadida Ibis, did not feel very private, surrounded on 3 sides by either a sitting area or access to other rooms. I felt I had to close the curtains when I was in the room, for privacy, although the windows looking on to the sitting area did have mirrored glass. Also, because there was a room above with a wooden floor, you could hear the other guests walking about, they were obviously wearing shoes so I was disturbed early in the morning. I would say Waterside Lodge is a good place to stay, but not the room I had. Also, if you're not a great fan of dogs, you might prefer elsewhere. Although they were quiet and well behaved they did make the place smell a bit 'doggy' (I should point out this didn't apply to the bedroom) and were obviously quite keen on the guests, preferring to sit under/by the breakfast table! They didn't beg but I would have preferred them to have been kept away when I was eating - a relatively minor complaint though and if you like dogs - no problem at all!
We were upgraded which was great. Lovely big room with stunning bathroom. Very good breakfast.
Lack of mirrors, needs a bit more lighting
Nora was a very charming and helpful host and was always on hand to help if required. She upgraded us to the honeymoon suite for no extra cost. Lovely breakfasts and views across the lagoon. Great location forgetting into the local restaurants.
Some noise from the N2 road.
My experience with Waterside Lodge was great. The room was spacious with huge comfortable bed, tea, coffee, wines, TV. Breakfast was good with decent coffee. The owners are very friendly. I would definitely stay there again!
Enjoyed the breakfast and the surrounds - it had a very tropical feel to it.
Excellent location besides the lagoon and beach. Wonderful and friendly owner. Beautiful cottages. Nice breakfast.
Swimming pool is very small but who needs a pool when the lagoon is next door. Wifi in the rooms would have been an added bonus.
Friendly welcome. Beautiful surroundings. Stunning facilities. We were able to relax. Slept well. Delicious breakfast. All in all an amazing experience....
Dogs on premises, bathroom was mouldy and the towels were dirty, the bedding didn't smell fresh either, won't go there again!!!
Very friendly and helpful hosts. Within safe walking distance from good restaurants. Beautiful view from room. For birders especially great views every morning of Knysna Lourie coming to feed in the garden. Excellent breakfast
