Travellers' Choice
Cinnamon Boutique Guest House provides the finest Wilderness accommodation there is to offer. The guest house consists of 13 luxurious suites, most with their own balconies (facing the mountain, bird sanctuary), King-size beds, fantastic bathrooms and their own sitting areas. Other room amenities include air conditioning, big-screen satellite TV and free wi-fi internet. The main lobby includes a very spacious open plan restaurant where breakfast is served. Opening out onto the veranda you'll find the pool and patio/sundeck - perfect for summer garden breakfasts or to just read a book during the day. You'll also find two lounges and a very stylish bar where you can relax before or after dinner with a few drinks. Take some time out to unwind on the massage chair 15 minutes and you will feel like a new person. The beach is only a couple of minutes away (lovely walk) and temperatures throughout the year is moderate enough to have a breakaway at any season.

We had a really lovely spacious twin aspect room which was very comfortable and had nice touches like a Nespresso machine. There was also half bottles of wine which could be purchased for just 50 rand. The management and staff were really friendly and helpful.
Location is great, very easy walk to restaurants and fantastic beach.
Would have no hesitation in recommending a stay at this lovely guest house.

huge Comfortable and quiet room with an amazing bathroom. The bed was very comfortable the room spotlessly clean and well equipped. The bathroom was huge with toilet, bidet, basin bath and the biggest shower I have ever used! South Africa is currently experiencing a water shortage so we did not use the bath but the shower was powerful. Room was air conditioned and had a fridge and tea making facilities with an excellent range of teas as well as TV 2 arm chairs etc. The breakfast buffet was lovely, beautiful fresh fruit, freshly cooked to order hot breakfast as well as breads yoghurts cereals etc. They catered for my milk intolerance too providing me with lactose free milk. Staff were really welcoming and showed us around explaining everything. There was even a bar with an honesty box so you could help yourself! There was a pool, a garden with a tropical feel. We sat on the terrace for breakfast under a shade and watched the birds. This was our favourite hotel and I would definitely stay here again.
Wilderness itself is lovely, compact and easy to walk around with some lovely restaurants. The beach is beautiful.
It is worth mentioning that South Africa has been having power cuts on a daily basis which is known as load shedding. At the time of our visit this was for 2 hours twice a day. This is not the fault of the hotel and is country wide. They are at planned times and this hotel was great as they were upfront with us as to when they would be. Sometimes they were in the middle of the night so didn’t affect us. However we were provided with Battery operated lights

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review for us. You have really touched on every single aspect of the hotel & what you have enjoyed about your time with us. To say that we appreciate your extensive feedback is an understatement. WOW! Thank you so so much!! To be called a "favourite" is such an honor. Nothing makes us happier than to see our time and effort and little attentions to detail come full-circle and that our guests can walk away with a stunning experience and wonderful memories. We hope that you get the chance to travel down to the garden route again in the future and hopefully then would be able to stay a little longer as well. All the best wishes, Yzelle & the Cinnamon Team

We stayed in this high-end bed and breakfast lodge for six nights in March 2024. It is very well located in Wilderness and remarkably quiet and private for such a central location, only five minutes’ walk from the main concentration of restaurants and a convenient Spar supermarket.

We had booked a superior suite (Room 6) which was a lovely first floor room with two balconies, light and airy and with ample room to sit and relax in your own space. The beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large and quite well appointed, although the shower cabinet in particular was old-fashioned and the water pressure was a bit erratic in the mornings. The one drawback was limited space for clothes, with a lack of good wardrobe hanging space in particular, and a resulting need to distribute clothes all round, into other cupboards in the bathroom and beside the beds.

The communal areas were spacious and comfortable, with two separate sitting areas of different style, and a well stocked honesty bar, with very reasonable charges. The large dining area was both inside and outside beside the small swimming pool, where a couple of colourful local Loerie birds were accustomed to come for a daily feed of banana pieces, at breakfast time.

The breakfast was good quality and nicely cooked, although the supporting cold buffet items did not vary much and this became a little monotonous.

The staff were universally friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome. All in all we had a good and comfortable stay, and were very happy. Whilst this establishment is at the higher end of bed and breakfast rates, we thought it well worthwhile, for providing spacious and good quality accommodation, which never felt crowded. We would suggest, however, that this establishment is best suited for a one - three night stay rather than longer, owing to the limited wardrobe space. However, we would probably return and would certainly recommend the Cinnamon Boutique to friends.

Room 5 was delightful with it's balconies. No request was too much with an excellent taxi service on tap. Reservations were made at local restaurants - do go to Joplins for best steaks ever. Cinnamons breakfasts were pretty good with a pleasant outside pool area where local birds are encouraged to feed. All in all a top stay.

Thank you so much for your amazing review and for picking us as your choice of stay while in Wilderness. I am so happy to see that you had a lovely stay and that you enjoyed your room. It's so important because that does become your home-away-from-home while you are travelling.

We arrived at this guesthouse at 1am as my husband had been admitted to a local hospital . Despite the late hour my son and I couldn't have been made more welcome . Our room was very spacious and light with a lovely balcony . Early evening someone would come round and offer us a chocolate which was a nice touch. Breakfast was delicious and there are several restaurants within a 5 mins walk for dinner . There is an honesty bar downstairs with a large range of drinks . Amazing staff ...thoroughly recommend a stay here

Ignore the drab looking entrance and the tight car parking and you will find a peaceful oasis. We had a lovely 3 night stay here. The room was spacious and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the pool. The fresh milk in the fidge was replenished daily as was the complimentary bottle of water per person. The Manager, Ann, and all her staff were very courteous and attentive. They recommended 3 good restaurants in the village which were easily accessed by a remote controlled gate at the rear of the property - The Girls, Pompodoro and the Blue Olive. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to other travellers.

We had a pleasant stay at Cinnamon boutique house.
We appreciate the management’s flexibility allowing us to amend reservation dates due to unforeseen circumstances. The environment was calming with beautiful bird sounds. Cleaning was always done nice and early while we enjoyed breakfast 😊 With the Milkwood village just a 5 minute walk away, we had all amenities and restaurants nearby and it’s a walking distance to the beach.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

One of the loveliest guest houses I have ever stayed in. Tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. Ann the GM was extremely welcoming. Complimentary drink and a freshly cooked breakfast all added to a most pleasurable stop over. Our only regret was that we were only there the one night. High quality linen and an extremely comfortable bed. Will definitely return in the future. All the necessary Covid protocols in place.

We stayed at the Cinnamon Boutique Guest House in wilderness recently. We booked last minute after returning from family in Calitzdorp. Was a short distance to George airport for a very early morning flight back to Jhb.
It’s absolutely a little gem of a hotel, beautifully designed, the staff, friendly and attentive, well informed and could even answer questions about surrounding areas and answered some questions about the trees and birds we spotted in the garden. We were, are so impressed. Overall 10/10. Beautiful clean room. We are definitely returning December 2020.

Cinnamon is a stunning B&B 5 Stars just off the highway in a quiet road within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. It is nestled in a beautiful private garden and if quiet and bird watching is your thing instead of the sun, sand and wind this is ideal. Their Covid-19 protocols are top notch and the staff and super friendly and efficient. Lovely food and great hospitality, thank you.

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your query. Yes, we are family friendly. We do have a cot for babies as well as a feeding chair. For bigger children we usually supply a mattress if our family room is booked out. I hope you find my answer in order and we look forward to hear from you should you decide to stay with us.

Hi Pat, There are restaurants literally at the bottom of the road from the Guest House and it is absolutely safe. Literally a 2 min walk. Wilderness is a really small community with from what I seen little poverty and is integrated much more than other places in SA. Would recommend for you guys, some really nice restaurants there too. Make sure you try The Girls. Enjoy. Craig
