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...

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...

We enjoy to stay in Wilderness man. The Landlords are very kindly, the breakfast was the best on our tour. The rooms are very good. The Location near the village ( 20 Minutes per feet) was o.k. Very good was the pedestrian walk over water. A little bit difficult was to go to the beach.

You guys are great. Your B&B was over the top beautiful and comfortable. Our only problem was that we could only stay one night. You knew the great restaurants and got us a reservations at "The Girls" which was sensational. The views from your place are great and great walking paths/boardwalks wer jus out the door.

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
