Absolutely Terrible. No Service. Breakfast no clean tables, food on the floor, no clean cutlery, no coffee left, no eggs... Christmas lunch advertised R250 per person with welcoming cocktails. That didn't happen and sauce was burned. When wanting to purchase a drink, they only sell 6 packs, which you have to fetch yourself at reception. As we booked in we...

This hotel should be avoided at all costs. It was by far the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. All problems had to be sorted by walking the passage to the reception due to broken phone. 7 out of 7 days we had to ask for the room to be cleaned when we got back to our room...

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...

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...
