          We had a short but pleasant stay in Fairy Knowe. The location is quiet and pretty and activities are available onsite, as is a bar and meals. The kitchen and bathrooms need a complete makeover in the old farmhouse. Bring mosquito repellant.

          Awesome place to set up camp and chill. It's really close to hiking trails and close to town. It's the only place in Wilderness I stay! There's wifi and a pool table and huge camp grounds and very reasonably priced too!

          Stopped over here while travelling the Garden Route with friends. Good quality of service with lots of activities on offer. Rooms a tad on the small side for 6 people sharing but good value for money. Would stay again!

          I wish you would have told Housekeeping about the "Smell" upon checking in. We were unaware of this. Our bar staff does not hande quest complaints or issues... and are never intoxicated as you stated above...we have a reception desk for guest issues and complaints....More
