“Wildebraam SC cottages”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Was a dissapointing experience. Reception not very welcoming. Cleanliness of cottage not up to standard. Bedding and furniture old and not comfortable any more. Will not return. Could have gotten better accomodation for the money spent

We stayed at river lodge. As soon as it was evening, lot of insects started coming inside the house. even though we closed the door there is space under the door which allows them to come through. Later, I had to close the gaps in the door using a towel. I also had to handpick the insects and throw them out. My 2 year old son refused to step down on the floor after seeing the insects.

They should do something about the door.

The estate located a short distance from town, allowing travelers to enjoy nature and its beauty combined with the tranquility of a country like environment. Although the cottage was actually a relatively old house, it was fully functional, very spacious and the kids just loved the huge rose garden. Although it's designed for families who came for several nights, it was also nice to relax for just 1 night on the way between Cape Town and Knysna.

As always staying with you is an exceptional experience. Wonderful reception, lovely facilities. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. It is a lovely stopover for us on our way to Cape Town and just far enough either way.

A stunning view and super friendly staff! They really went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible!!

We stayed for 2 nights in the Berry cottage. It was very quite and that was exactly what we were looking for. We did the tasting at the Cellar that was done by Kathrine and it was superb!! Real great weekend all together. 10/10 for Wildebraam's location and staff as well as facilities.

What a lovely laid back place to stay. My husband and I slept over for only 1 night but highly recommend a long weekend to soak up the magnificent view, peace and quiet. Our cottage was more than adequately equipped for self catering purposes and there was a lovely veranda to braai/barbeque. It is a short trip into town where there are a number of lovely restaurants to eat if self catering is not for you. Wildebraam has a shop on site for one to sample and buy their many delectable jams, liquers, chilli sauces etc.
