An excellent location, right on the beach, quiet, but nevertheless various restaurants etc. can easily be reached by walking. Modern style, very well selected comfortable furniture. Relaxed atmosphere, excellent and pleasant services.

The hotel is situated directly to the beach. So you can enjoy a superb breakfast on the terrace while watching the waves and the people walking on the beach. The rooms are large and very modern. Even the room on the side to the street was very quiet.

On the beach is 5 star accomodation with a 5 star service and a 6! star view of the beach. The only down side was the weather during our stay. Other than that this place in Wilderness is one of the most beautiful and stunning hotels one has to see and experience while travelling the garden route:-)

Fabulous accommodation with stunning views directly to a wonderful beach and the sea from your balcony/ room/ bed! Tastefully decorated and very helpful staff. Wilderness is a great stop-off point along the garden route as it's a good 4hour plus drive from Hermanus/ Cape Town. Several decent restaurants but for us it's all about looking out on the Ocean and...
