This is one of the oldest hotels in the Wilderness, I remember staying there with my parents as child. That being said it is not the most modern but the hospitality was of the highest standard. All the establishment needs is a bit of an upgrade. The rooms would be fine if the bathrooms were redone.

Checked in here and checked out within 2 hours. I wish someone would swoop up this establishment in a very prime area and refurbish it into what could be a gold mine!!! Awful, dirty rooms, weird smells, no water for sale, rancid water in room kettles, loads of noise, maintenance men that stare as you walk past etc etc etc....

Stopped at the Wilderness Beach Hotel (off the N2) and as a "walk-in" we received a fantastic Room Rate. The price included Breakfast for 2, the room was splendid. Great views of the ocean. The morning Breakfast buffet was good, shared with many Chinese "Bus" tourists who were happily taking photos.

The rooms and rest of the hotel is clearly run down. Vastly different to what is portrayed on the websites. After stating my dismay at the below 'closing down' standard of the...
