We received a wonderful warm welcome on arrival. The accommodation was really beautiful and the views spectacular. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great and they gave us a wonderful breakfast. All in all, a wonderful place to stay. We will definitely recommend this place.

Very well run and a lovely location.We could walk to a very good fish restaurant for dinner. Saturday nights barbecue was very good and a chance to get to know the other guests. Bo and Clare are great hosts.

Is there no place like home?....well, you might be mistaken. Because Clare and Beau will make you feel very much at home in their nice Guesthouse, beautiful situated on the shores of the Lagune at Wilderness.The comfortable rooms and beds all ensuite and overlooking the Lagune definitely sets your mind to rest. You will very much enjoy the fresh fruit...

There is nothing bad to say about this B & B. We were warmly welcomed by Clare and Beau and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. We had been on the road for a week visiting National Parks and Knysna and Anchorage was or last stop before heading home to Somerset West. We had relations from UK...

We have been to Wilderness many times but not stayed on the lagoon side. This was an excellent choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days with Claire and Beau, they could not have done more for us. We tried to book the Power van up the Montegu Pass without success, but Claire's mother was visiting and she knew who to...

Beautiful location right at the riverside and a room with panoramic front view. The cozy interiors and the family-type ambiance made us feel at home right away. No wonder we met "our kind" of other guests there ...

I stayed at this B&B on my way back from St. Lucia to Capetown. Claire was a very good host and the room was extremely clean and nice. This B&B was my favorite of the ones that I stayed in(maybe 10) during my 3 months in Africa. Bill

We enjoyed our stay at Anchorage. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and their home/B&B is very nicely designed and decorated. Our room overlooked their pool and the lagoon. It was easy to access Anchorage from the N2 and to access Wilderness National Park from the B&B. In good weather it would be fun to use their boats to...

We stayed there for a week and used it as a base for our day trips in the area. Location close to the lake is very calm and beautiful. At night we could hear the noise from the N2 but it is the case for all the locations around the lagoon. The couple was extremely nice and did their best...

“All rooms are overlooking the Lagune. If you prefer twin beds, ask for the room on the upper deck.”

“Stay on the top floor. the rooms are a wooden add on the house, so have wooden floors. No one was staying below us, but if they were, I would have felt guilty about walking around early in the morning.”

“Rooms on the ground floor open directly on to the garden / jetty and river. And they are slightly quieter - from upstairs rooms you can just hear the traffic in the distance.”
