Cinnamon Boutique Guest House
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Wilderness
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2008

Having read the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to book the Cinnamon boutique as a stop over between various other hotels/lodges on our recent trip along the Garden Route/Eastern Cape. Our big regret was that we only used it as a one night stop over - we wished we had stayed longer! The accommodation was first class, as was the hospitality and the marvellous food. Of all the places we stayed during our trip (including 5 star hotels), this one tops the lot - it was excellent value for money. The weather was poor during our stay there but the warmth of the hospitality more than compensated. Thank you Desmond and Johan for a wonderful stay.

Quiet, relaxing and really close to village and beach. Hosts Desmond and Johan make you feel very welcome and comfortable and their restaurant is fantastic, best food in the village by far. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone who is stopping at Wilderness or wants a base to explore the garden route on their vacation. Take a look at their website for more info http://www.cinnamonhouse.co.za/ but we booked through Safarinow.com.

A fabulous place to stay - tranquil, lovely rooms (ours had a double balcony), lots of space, the whole place beautifully furnished and great hosts, Desmond and Johan.

Soaked up the sun (there's a pool too) on the terrace with the hills and woods providing a picture backdrop.

It has its own restaurant too which was top notch and clearly a big hit with local residents and us.
We stayed 3 nights on our way along the Garden Route and loved it - great food, great service in great surroundings.

We found Cinnamon House in January 2005 soon after it opened because we were dissatisfied with our previously booked accommodation and visited the tourism office to find something better. We couldn't believe our luck as we had a selection to choose from but certainly made the right choice back then. They had no restaurant at that time but provided excellent breakfasts and an evening meal if required. On returning to South Africa this October the fond memories of our luxurious stay at Wilderness persuaded us to return to Cinnamon House. Often a mistake to go back - never as good second time around. Not so. It was even better as they now have an excellent restaurant which achieves the high standards of the rest of the property. Congratulations to Desmond and Johan for maintaining these high standards of comfort, luxury and friendliness.

The location is an ideal base for visiting Oudtshoorn, George, Knysna, Plettenberg, etc..

Truly this Guest House is an oasis in Wilderness, when you enter this building you will be faced with a decor that has been chosen with a geat deal of care and taste, form the sumptous leather suites to the beautiful dining room,bar and pool areas. The bedrooms all have individual themes, all subtle blends of autuminal colours, with throws and every detail to match. the rooms are all of a very good size and the bathrooms well appointed. Beds are firm and huge. our room had two balconies one overlooking the gardens, which has an abundant bird life. The other above the small pool,

Desmond & Johan are attentive but unobtrusive, Breakfast was a delight. full English plus all the South African specials you can think of. So the accomodation is really first class, if you are travelling from the UK, I will assure you, stay here and you have made the right choice, even based on the excellent accomodation available throughout South Africa, this one is good,

When you stay here you must eat at the resturant. Barry is also thoughtful,attentive and helpful. The atmosphere is perfect for a charming and intimate dinner, cooked to perfection and served with a good choice of affordable wines. Compared with the UK, well actually there is no comparison its a steal.

When we stayed we had one night when it was just us and I can't believe that this Guest House is not full every night and theres not a queue down to the beach, get booking before everyone knows where the Cinnamon is.

Thanks for a great stay Boys.

Having travelled along theGarden Route staying at some lovely hotels we just didn't think we could get any better until we arrived at the Cinnamon Boutique hotel. Beautiful garden and delightfully eclectic public lounges. The rooms were just beautifully appointed and the bathrooms were just the best - well thought out, with excellent lighting for makeup! (Usually a failing with most hotels). Desmond and Johan couldn't have been friendlier with good advice on trips out from the hotel. Some stunning scenery just on the door step with a beautiful bay and beach just a short stroll away through the village of Wilderness.

Absolutely A1.
Desmond & Johan were extremely helpful and Barry was a great manager and barman, even put me onto Black Label, only beer with hops! The food and wine selection were extremely good as were all the staff. As for the breakfast was enough to keep us going though out the day. Our room was magnificent as were all the lounges and furniture within the guest house. The pool looked inviting but was wrong time of the year unless very brave!
Thanks again Guys.
