We had one night here. Big mistake. You can make this your base for the area.The guest house is beautiful and the hosts cannot do enough to make you welcome and to ensure that you get the most from your stay. Fantastic breakfast. We were even given information on the places en route to our next place and when. We...

Our hosts attention to detail and service was above expectation and I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels that could learn something here. The rooms are very spacious and tastefully decorated. the bathrooms look brand new and are bigger than some hotel rooms I have slept in the past. The public areas invite you to linger in...

The house had a very comfortable and homely feeling. The apartment offered lots of space and the balcony allowed an excellent view. Everything is in walking distance from the house: restaurants, beach, canoeing opportunities and walks itself.... Gerald gave lots of good tips on what to do during our stay at Wilderness but also in respect of other points along...

We know that the attribution of stars is based on a list of features that is checked .E.g. No pool = not a 5th star. If the quality of the accomodation, the spacious and well equiped rooms, .... but especially the hospitality of Gerald and J.D. was taken into account there would have been no doubt. This guesthouse reserves 5...

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. It was a pleasure to welcome you back on your second visit to Wilderness Manor. I am sorry that you did not spot the two benches in the front garden, one below the big tree and the other near to the front door. As we are nature lovers, we make use of the...

What a find!! Wilderness Manor is run by Gerald and J. D. And is so obviously their much loved home with many of their purchases from round the world on display. Their rooms are wonderfully comfortable with everything needed for your stay. They are both excellent hosts and provide fantastic breakfasts and the attention to detail throughout is exemplary

My husband and I use Trip Advisor a lot but we have only ever written one review, a negative appraisal of a dreadful hotel in Koh Tao, Thailand.

From the warmth of the welcome to the comfort of the bed, Wilderness Manor excels in all departments. The design and decor is tasteful and of high quality and the lounge areas are the best we've ever experience in a B'n'B anywhere. The hosts could not be more attentive and the whole experience is that of a first class flight....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Almost halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on the internationally renowned Garden Route and nestled between mountains and golden beaches, you will find one of South Africa's most favoured holiday destinations, the seaside village of Wilderness. Wilderness Manor is an elegant and refined guest house overlooking the beautiful Wilderness Lagoon, in the heart of the scenic village of Wilderness. Step out of the front door and cross the road onto the boardwalk for an easy and safe stroll to beaches, restaurants and village shops. Relax in the spacious guest lounge or reading lounge, with superb views from the balconies overlooking the lagoon. Wilderness Manor is luxuriously decorated in an African colonial style with fine oriental rugs, heirlooms, antiques, art and collectables which contribute to a refined and stylish ambience. Retire to the serenity of four stylish en-suite bedrooms: three luxury and spacious lagoon facing rooms on the second floor with superb views of the lagoon and one standard garden room on the ground floor with a private garden / patio. Look forward to our Continental buffet and English breakfast served in our breakfast room, opening onto a sunny balcony overlooking the indigenous forest where the Knysna Loerie often comes to feed... Whether you are passionate about water sports, hiking, extreme adventure or animal encounters, the Garden Route and Klein Karoo has something for you. CHILD POLICY: Wilderness Manor is not suitable for infants and children younger than 12 years of age. ... more   less
