Friendly staff organised us a room at short notice after we fled the Wilderness Beach Hotel. What a pleasure - neat and clean rooms, plenty of TV channels, great modernised bathroom. Excellent and varied buffet breakfast. The hotel is in walking distance of the quaint village with its restaurants/shops.

Stayed: March 2018

Easter 2018 - another highlight at the hotel, but poor sleep quality was experienced due to hollow mattresses. The floor was not swept prior to us checking in and had to call reception to send a cleaner. The amount of dust and pieces of paper she gathered, indicated that the room was not swept or mopped for at least a few days.

We stayed at the wilderness hotel for 3 nights during the Easter weekend thanks to a promotion on the back rooms. We were therefore not expecting much and ended up being VERY pleasantly surprised !
Our rooms was modern, clean and of a good size (especially given the fact it was their smallest one). The only problem was that there was no safe (but they offered at reception so all good) and that the ladies did not refill the soap bottles...
The breakfast was lavish: fresh pressed juice !! Moreover the lady at the omelette station was really helpful and nice :)
Prudence at reception was a real charm and so helpful.
The Barmen were also great and wow the drinks were affordable and good!
My only real down comment would be on the waiters in the breakfast area, they are not helpful, openly annoyed to do their job and leave table dirty ...
but we loved it and will be back on the next promotion

We found the hotel by Hotels application. The price was fare. It is a very good hotel, with nice brakefast, good WiFi and nice staff. The location is near the restaurant area, near the lake. We like it very much.

What a lovely experience, our visit was too short to make use of all the amenities, but we will surely visit again. The staff was friendly, the accommodation lovely and the area was just so central that we could not wish for better.
