Checked in here and checked out within 2 hours. I wish someone would swoop up this establishment in a very prime area and refurbish it into what could be a gold mine!!! Awful, dirty rooms, weird smells, no water for sale, rancid water in room kettles, loads of noise, maintenance men that stare as you walk past etc etc etc.... More

Stopped at the Wilderness Beach Hotel (off the N2) and as a "walk-in" we received a fantastic Room Rate. The price included Breakfast for 2, the room was splendid. Great views of the ocean. The morning Breakfast buffet was good, shared with many Chinese "Bus" tourists who were happily taking photos.

The rooms and rest of the hotel is clearly run down. Vastly different to what is portrayed on the websites. After stating my dismay at the below 'closing down' standard of the... More

The hotel location right on the beach is amazing we had a room with a sea view and it was amazing, but that's it. No facilities, the rooms are old and poorly taken care of. very poor breakfast. a real let down

We spend 2 nights here this week-end. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great beds but hotel is in process of re-vamping. Although it will take time more attention should be given to detail. Not licensed but you can work around it. They made a lot of effort to accommodate us early on Saturday morning with breakfast packs which was fresh... More
