We spent three days at the Fairy Knowe Hotel in March. We stayed in one of the rondavels, which we found comfortable and where we had a river view. My husband has mobility issues and the rondavel, with its walk-in shower, was ideal for us. The food and service were excellent. We loved wandering round the gardens and their vegetable garden is something to behold! We will definitely return.

My favourite place to stay in Wilderness. You don’t have to cross a road to get to the river! The spacious, clean rooms with a luxurious big bed open right onto it and you have access to the kayaks anytime.

I have known about this hotel for many, many years, and it was always my "go to" booking place in Wilderness for accommodation for the company I worked for. Decided to book a one night stay end Feb 2024, and expected an old run down place. I was pleasantly surprised, it was an absolutely lovely hotel; staff were very friendly and helpful; food was good; bedroom was fresh and super clean. We especially loved their herb and vegetable garden. Well done Fairy Knowe! We'll be back.

Returning to stay at the familiar Fairy Knowe Hotel for three days in February 2024 and what a great experience with the new owners and staff. The veggie and herb garden is remarkable. I would highly recommend them to family and friends.

We really enjoyed our visit. The hotel is peaceful, in a lovely setting along the river , the facilities are excellent, the staff are wonderful and the grounds are well laid out and beautifully maintained. Special thanks to Gerialdo who was tremendously kind and helped us get sorted with the kayak - you made our day!

Thank you for the best experience. The most friendly service and most delicious food. Loved the breakfast buffet. My 3 year old son also enjoyed the stay and the play jungle. It is a place for young and old.

Excellent. Great location right next to the river. Creates a really peaceful environment. Friendly staff who are always ready and willing to assist. Location is central and so provides easy access to a large variety of activities.
