Welcome to the Garden Route's oldest and best-loved Hotels! With a grand tradition as honeymoon spot, family hotel and a tourist and business destination, it's steeped in tradition and it's got a warm, More old-style charm. But it's also a modern hotel with all the facilities you need - The 150-bedroom property boasts a beauty spa, two swimming pools, a bowling green, two tennis courts, a squash court, putt-putt and six banqueting halls and conference rooms. We are situated almost in the centre of the Garden Route - 45 minutes' drive to both Mossel Bay and Knysna, less than an hour to Oudtshoorn in the Klein Karoo. Not to mention 300 meters from golden beaches, surrounded by indigenous forests and striking lagoons. It's a Mecca for sport and adventures and Wilderness is part of the unfenced Garden Route National Park - with some of the world's most popular walks and trails. All of this makes The Wilderness Hotel perfect for niche markets like birders, mountain bikers, golfers and for tour companies too, of course. Less

Lovely hotel with friendly staff and efficient housekeeping. Plenty to do in the area with good restuarants walking distance from hotel. Breakfast at the hotel is recommended. Beach is only a few minutes away. Hope to go again soon.

How big is the fitness centre?
Good day - thank you for your enquiry. The Spa and Fitness centre is rented out to a private company which is in the process of renovating the fitness centre. I believe in about 2 months time it will consist of at least 8 'circuit machines', bicycle, treadmill and loose weights - I hope this helps.
