Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
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.

Responded 31 Oct 2018
Thank you for taking the time to review Wilderness Manor on TripAdvisor. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Wilderness Manor. Thank you for loading the two beautiful photos of the lagoon. What a lovely view from your room celebrating your honeymoon, sipping away on the complimentary sparkling wine that we offer our honeymoon couples. Enthusiastically, we give our guests information with ideas on the activities to do in Wilderness and further along the Garden Route. It is up to each individual guest to decide whether they want to enjoy the peaceful location, spend time in their room and take each day as it comes or spend time to enjoy the activities that Wilderness has to offer. It is wonderful to have choices and options in life when looking around. We wish you all the best as you start your married life together.
