“Highly recommended, lovely hotel in a perfect location”
Reviewed 20 February 2017

We had a great stay here, it's in a fantastic location with amazing views over the beach. The hotel is lovely, and the attention to detail is fantastic - the service is excellent, and they've thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend if you're looking to stay in Wilderness for activities in the area of need somewhere to stop over on your way down the Garden Route.

We had a beautiful room in this amazing property. The beach is perfect and the staff very helpful. We accidentally left something in the room and it was promptly couriered to our next destination. I'd recommend this place to anyone.

We enjoyed the time you spent with us at On the Beach Hotel and we feel flattered by such great compliments. We aim to provide a high standard of service, and we are over the moon that you experienced it first hand. With this said, we hope that you will return for more relaxation, lounging on our sundeck overlooking the most beautiful beach you will ever find.
Kind regards

An outstanding modern boutique hotel in a glorious location. Everything was just perfect. Wonderful room. Great breakfast (and cocktails!) on deck looking out to ocean. Friendly and helpful staff - special mention for Rhoda and Ted! We stayed for five nights and would gladly have stayed longer. There's a good selection of restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room!

Wonderful spacious and very modern room with specular picture window of the ocean. Direct access to beach for walking. Very helpful staff. Within a few minutes walk of a selection of restaurants. Delightful breakfast area just above the lovely beach.

As soon as we entered this gorgeous guest house we knew we'd made a good choice. Contemporary, stylish with a wonderful view of the ocean. Our ground floor room was gorgeous, opening directly onto the terrace where you can have a delicious breakfast. Probably one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in, fab bathroom. Rhoda and all the staff were so helpful. We have already booked to come back next for longer.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms open directly onto the terrace
