We stayed one night in this lodge. We had a spacious room with a balcony with a beautiful view over the ocean. Breakfast was delicious. WiFi is only available when your (very) close to the reception. Wilderness is a beautiful town where you can just walk around.

We were 4 people from Germany and had a charlet in the woods and it was a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect. Looks like these guys understand how to treat guests. Best breakfast i have had in south africa.

Wonderful location with views of the sea and beach that were marvellous.
Easy walk to restaurants and had 2 excellent evening meals. Lovely chocolate and coffee cafe in Milkwood Village. Great lunch venue nearby.
Thoroughly enjoyed forest walks along river beds as well as each walks.
Accommodation was spot on

The positives are that the rooms are lovely, the breakfast is yummy and the buildings have been built sympathetically to the surroundings.

The downsides are that wilderness is ruined by a huge road that cuts the town off from the beach. You can see the road from the lodge and can hear road noise including from the pool area. The pool area is ok but the pool is not as clean as I would like. Free wifi can only be found at the poolside which is a little annoying.

The first I stayed in Wilderness and was really pleasantly surprised with the accommodation at Boardwalk Lodge. Staff friendly and helpful. Accommodation well maintained and serviced. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and family was really happy. Staff was considerate to give us the lowest unit considering I had children.Good position and could exercise as well. Parking was not reserved and may have been a challenge as you may park lower down than what was originally set. Thankfully it only happened once. Other than that a really good and value for money experience.

Room Tip: Close to amenities. Chose lower units, its easier to access.

We spent 5 nights at the lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were wonderful and the environment itself is just absolutely peaceful and conducive to rest and relaxation for a couple wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We stayed in a luxury suit that was very comfortable and the facilities were easy to access. Evening swims in the stunning pool, overlooking the ocean, a short walk from the village and genuinely helpful people made our trip all the more enjoyable. We will definitely consider going back in time to come.
