We have stayed at Wilderness Manor several times over the years and it's always been a superb and spoiling experience, which we truly didn't think could be improved upon, but it just has. The owners launched a huge renovation program over last winter and have taken the guesthouse to new heights. All new bathrooms with fantastic power showers, super comfy...

We traveled as a couple and a close friend and had two spacious rooms. Stunning, inviting style and owners, impeccable cleanliness, relaxing furniture in open indoor areas. First class personal service and attention. This is definitely a guesthouse you would like to return to.

Another lovely stay with Gerald and JD in their fabulous guest house. We love Roon 4 with its balcony overlooking the Lagoon and the sea in the distance. The bathroom has been modernised this year and it's lovely. The attention to detail is amazing and we just love to be looked after so well. We look forward to our stay...

we first visited in 2009 and did not hesitate to go back when we revisited the area. Gerald and JD are such good hosts . The house is beautiful with so much attention to detail. We couldn't book a room overlooking the lagoon as they were already taken but were given a refurbished garden room with the most enormous ensuite....

JD and Herald are excellent hosts- the rooms are new and JD and Gerald look well after the accommodation - very clean. The house is very quite and Wilderness a good place for Hicking. JD and Gerald will help you with many information for an enjoyable stay. Last but not least: they offer a tasteful breakfast.

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
