Got to the hotel at 5pm only to hear the room is not ready and the hotel has no linen. Had to wait till 9pm for my room and still no towels until 11pm. After a fuss. Bathroom floor was flooded for the duration as the toilet was leaking. The only thing reception is good for is telling you they... More

We booked a room in this hotel to find that the outside looks like a building due for demolishing. I almost cried, it looked terrible. The people are very nice but when we got to our room they told us that the air conditioning does not work and the lift was out of order & pipes were coming out of... More

I recently spent 2 nights (had booked for 3) at the Wilderness Beach Hotel. It was such a disappointment. We had to ask for pillows / towels and hair dryer (which never arrived). The room was covered in dust, as there are major renovations underway (much needed), but upon booking, we were not told that we would be staying in... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location very close to the beach. Our room was comfortable with a great view of the ocean. The hotel itself though is in need of updating, although to be fair there was maintenance work going on which suggests that this is being addressed. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful; but those... More

I use to stay at The Wilderness Beach hotel a lot. And then the new company took over. I never went back. After the owner took the hotel back some time ago, I realized the amount of effort and money that was spent on the hotel. In April we decided to have our company's conference at The Wilderness Beach hotel.... More

This hotel is situated in such a lovely setting, right on the hill above the gorgeous long beach. But that is the only plus about it. The man at reception on check in was surley, didn't greet, just thrust a form at me to sign, gave me the keys and told me to walk down the passage and told me... More
