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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed in the sunbird suite which is beautiful and private away from other guests. Sadly the room had a very strange smell to it, which even with prolonged opening of all the windows and doors would not dissipate. It smelled like a mixture of cleaning supplies and faintly like urine, which is why this place gets a reduced rating.... More

Deon is most accommodating and assisted in organising a canoe ride to the waterfalls, incl. a picnic basket. All staff members were most friendly, the rooms spacious, the beds very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! The gorgeous dogs Bill & Boo rounded it off perfectly for us!

Had the most wonderful stay at Waterside Lodge B&B! It is conveniently located, walking distance from the village and the beach. The Sunbird Suite is beautiful, clean, private and the breakfast was out of this world! Nora was very considerate and helpful during load shedding, making sure that we had extra lights.
