Reluctant as I am to add my dissenting voice to the chorus of praise for this guest house, I fear that I must record our experience. Although both the room we stayed in and the bathroom were spacious and well appointed, the breakfast was a disappointment. The fruit platter was meager, consisting of a couple of grapes cut un quarters, a few slices of banana sprinkled with desiccated coconut and one strawberry. The bread rolls were tasteless, the bacon mostly fat and the cheese processed (one slice each). The Belgian owners have yet to master the art of making either tea or hot chocolate since their version of both drinks consists of a cup of lukewarm water with, on the side, a tea bag or jar of powdered stuff mascarading as chocolate.

Room Tip: The Hadida Ibis room, although fine, has the disadvantage of its main window facing the garden and a bench for the use of other guests. Privacy is therefore impaired.

Lovely location facing the lagoon and off the main road, make this a peaceful guest house to hang your hat. A well tended and lush garden greets you, along with the owners friendly collie dog!

We chose the Hadida Ibis room, which was very spacious and came with a large bathroom, king size bed and view over the deck and pool, although as they were quiet, we had an opportunity to check out all of the rooms, and each one was very tasteful.

Breakfast was very nice and cooked to order, and there was a comfortable lounge in the house that was available to relax in.

The village of Wilderness is a ten minute walk away, and we had dinner at The Girls restaurant which was excellent and we highly recommend.

We were very happy to have chosen this guest house to spend the last two nights of our wonderful holiday in South Africa.

A beautiful setting and wonderful room - the Sun Bird. We were made very welcome by the owner and her collie dog, Bill. Lovely views over the lagoon and only a short walk into the village where there are good restaurants and bars. They could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Our room was amazing - huge and delightfully furnished. We will be returning and will stay for longer next time.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the little extra for the Sun Bird in the garden.

We were given the address of Waterside Lodge by the local travel bureau in Wilderness together with a choice of others which were more expensivef and didn't look as nice.
We were certainly not disappointed.
Nora greeted us with friendliness and enthusiasm and we had a choice of a number of rooms, all of which were exccellent, but we chose one with a verandah immediately outside our door, and next to the swimming pool; reallyit was the first among equals, but as i wasn't feeling too good on that day, there wasn't too much effort involved in doing anything at all!
Both Nora and Bert were generous with their time, once Bert was able to pull himself away from creating the most wonderfully complex jigsaws which adorn the walls of the immaculately clean house.
Breakfast was delightful and plentiful and served whenever we requested it.
We really do recommend heartily, the Waterside Lodge and suggest that to save time, money and effort, you look no further.

Upon our arrival we received a free upgrade for the honeymoon lodge. The owner, a lovely Belgian woman, just checked us in the very big lodge with a huge bathroom and served us two cold beers on our porch. We settled in easily and enjoyed the service and hospitality. She arranged dinner at Serendepity for us which is a great place to go and eat in Wilderness. The guesthouse and especially the Honeymoon Lodge is beautifully decorated. Breakfast was fine.
