I booked a family room on the ground floor but were given a double room on the first floor. After a heated talk with the manager it was rectified. The blame was put on Booking.com. So next time I will make sure that what I booked is what I want.

Had a wonderful two night stay, The room was really comfortable being able to sit on the waters edge. Enjoyed a day out on the hired canoes where the service was also excellent. Will definitely stop over again, or better spend a week.

This was such a special spot....the breakfast was great, the staff was amazing and the room was really clean with comfortable beds. I just wish I had chosen to stay in the rooms overlooking the river..... next time I will know to do that.

It is such a good feeling returning to a hotel, that was always the gem on the Tour River in Wilderness, however, the hotel was run down and tired. To my surprise the owners have spent millions on restoring/refurbishing this gem. Currently they are only using the river-front rooms, however, the Rondavel Rooms won't be far from completion, then they only have the rooms in the hotel to work on. A new restaurant too, with a lovely deck serves a great buffet breakfast too. It is also open for lunch and dinner too. I can highly recommend this hotel, and I will definitely be back soon.
