The staff was very friendly. We really enjoyed the river as well. I would suggest Fairy Knowe Hotel to families with kids as there is a lot for everyone to do . The location is perfect and 5 minuets away from the beach

Had a wonderful holiday in the Wilderness for a week. Could not have chosen a better location, if I had to comment on anything it would be perhaps a small fridge just for milk and cold water,and to replace the shower curtain with a glass door. We thought the service throughout the hotel was fantastic and I will definately be...

Rustic old style hotel. Beautiful tranquil setting surrounded by a lagoon. Swimming pool and beach bar. Restaurant serving basic steak and seafood meals. Well priced. I deal stop over for families travelling the garden route.

Hostess has a bit of attitude. The hotel is very old and in need of a major overhaul. The bathrooms in the hotel are out of date- showers have "shower curtains" Towels that are "washed" look stained and dirty. TV in the room is a small computer monitor. Very limited dstv channels available. Not a pleasant stay.
