Stunning location with disappointing customer service. Disappointed by the inhospitable guesthouse owners having little or no tolerance with guests arriving at 8pm, an hour late after schedule, due to unforeseen circumstances and also the guests being unable to contact the guest house. Felt unwelcome and overcharged for a room without tv, headboard or decent side lamps. The bed was made...

This B&B was terrific. Very friendly Belgian couple who were very helpful at this waterfront located property. The small town centre is about 500 m and a short walk to many restaurants and an outdoor beer garden with live music (Roxy). The breakfast was superb and interesting and I recommend this B&B

We enjoyed a stay at this wonderfull lodge. The cottages are very nice, clean. The owner, Bert, received us like friends, although we never met him before. A wonderfull breakfast was served, we could suggest to add more cakes or pastry. There was plenty of fruit and yoghourt.

Good location a short walk from the centre of Wilderness and pleasant stay in the Sunbird room which from the description we thought would be kind of tucked away at the back of the garden but it was in fact at the front by the entrance gate so didn't feel as private as it is marketed. The room itself is...

Waterside Lodge is a very personal run B&B just across the road of the laguna. You can stay in the main house or in little cottages in the garden. As we arrived we found out that we stayed there already 11 years ago! Nora, the new owner, gave us the same room we had before, which was the honeymoon cottage...

The Waterside Lodge is located directly at the lagoon of Touw River to the ocean, with a nice view on both. The Lodge has a beautifully kept garden and a little pool. The center of town with restaurants is in walking distance. Our rooms were the Sunbird "Honeymoon" Suite (a separate cabin style building) and the Weaver Room in the...

We had a great vacation here together with our doggy :) Deon was really welcoming and accommodated all of our wishes. This is a pet friendly accommodation and our dog appreciated and loved every second of it! As there are two border collies, your doggies will have great friends to run around with :) Will definitely come back!

Would like to give Wilderness 4.5 as it was nearly just right when we stayed for 2 nights in February. We were in the separate wooden chalet at the rear of the property which suited us down to the ground. Good size room with good bathroom. Very comfortable but slightly dark. There is a lovely sitting area outside though and...
