We absolutely loved our stay at the Boardwalk Lodge. It was a family holiday and the chalet was perfect for this. It was a hellava climb (126 steps to be exact) but the room and view was well worth it. It's clean. The staff are friendly and it was incredibly well serviced. I would recommend it to anyone, except those... More

I was only there for one night, no bell service to cabin so you have to climb a fortune of stairs with all my bags. stairs not well lit. Cabins are old . internet didnt work. very overpriced for what it is . would never stay there again.

Our room no. 4 in the building that also contained the breakfast room and laundry had a great view towards the ocean. Unfortunately the main road N2 goes right along the beach in Wilderness. The Boardwalk Lodge is so far away from the main road that you don't hear any traffice noise and so far up the hill that you... More

Everything from check-in to checkout were great! We had a lovely room, great services and excellent personnel! I could use all the verbs and adjectives to write about this lodging but it would go back to "excellent"!

The room was nice. Breakfast unfortunately was disappointing . The continental buffet was fine but the cooked breakfast was terrible. Compared to other places we stayed at I was disappointed. I would go elsewhere next time.

We spent three nights here. We are a family of four (kids aged 9 and 6). We had units 9&10 which gave us a massive overall space with spectacular views across the bay. Huge terrace for braiis although the weather wasn't quite warm enough during our stay. On that note the bedrooms were pretty chilly at night although heater was... More

Boardwalk Lodge has got stunning views. But unfortunately we had a terrible experience with dirty and torn linnen- needs urgent replacements of mattress protectors, sheets and pillows cases, cushions, towels not fit for price range of accommodation, also kitchenware needs to be looked at. Not up to standard.

The unit has beautiful views of the ocean and is located within walking distance of the nearby shops and restaurants and within a short drive of the beaches. The breakfasts are lovely and the staff are very helpful.

We spent one night there (12.09.2016), room no. 13. The lady on the reception was friendly. You can’t check in before 1400 hours. The standard room we had was very small. Everything was humid, even the linen felt humid when we went to bed. The humid air is coming up from the ocean an you can hear the ocean as... More
