An extraordinary place to stay! Facing the peaceful lagoon, this guesthouse offers a perfect mixture of sophisticated interior and personal hospitality. Rooms and suites are decorated so tastefully and with love. We stayed in room no.2 - very much space, any conveniences you want, exclusive bathroom, separate living room with leather sofa and the view from the balcony is simply...

I don't normally 'do' trip adviser, but felt that the service we received from Gerald and JD was above and beyond. They were very welcoming and took time to explain what is available to do in the local area and had already reserved a table at 'The Girls' restaurant for us - which was also excellent. The room was spacious...

Stayed at this beautifully furnished and finished guest house in January. Lovely views and an easy walk to excellent restaurants and the beach. Breakfast is incredible and the hosts couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable, interesting and fun.

We normally don´t review many locations since they are standard, but immediately after arrival we decided to let other people know about the immaculate guest house and exceptional service. The rooms are sparkling and redone recently which means the bathrooms are very sophisticated and extremely spacious. The interior is lovingly picked and very cozy - I mean, I have never...

As everyone has said, 2 great chaps running this place. Only 4 rooms, so very quiet in the house, which suited us perfectly. really knowledgeable about the local restaurants. We also had a fab morning on the beach at Wilderness - definitely worth a day if you're doing the Garden Route. couldn't recommend highly enough.

Beautiful B&B on a lovely location. The view is incredible and you can walk to the beach. The rooms are comfortable with very good beds and new nice bahrooms. An excellent breakfast and the're a lot of restaurants nearby. Thank you JD and Gerald - and of course the friendly dogs - for your generous hospitality.

Shortly after arriving At Wilderness Manor, I realized that our one night stay was way too short. Gerald and JD are amazing hosts, greeting us with champagne and wine and lots of information about their guest house and the area. The rooms were magnificent with views of the lagoon and and tastefully appointed antique furnishings. The parlor and the kitchen...

Its hard to say what hasn't been said before. A wonderful welcome from JD and Gerald, including a drink and discussion on what we wanted to do and their recommendations.

The owners are caretakers to the best. Tips where to go, what to do. As a service we've had reservations at two restaurants for the time staying here. Spacious rooms! Newly renovated and very comfortable. A really huge bath. Located in a small road on the riverside. Only drawback, you'll hear the motorway from the ocean side here. Flop fifteen...

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
