Welcome to the Garden Route`s oldest and best-loved hotels!
With a grand tradition as honeymoon spot, family hotel and a tourist and business destination, it`s steeped in tradition and it`s got a warm, old-style charm. But it`s also a modern hotel with all the facilities you need.
The 150-bedroom property boasts a beauty spa, two swimming pools, a bowling green, two tennis courts, a squash court, putt-putt and six banqueting halls and conference rooms.
We are situated almost in the centre of the Garden Route and it is about 45 minutes drive to both Mossel Bay and Knysna, and a little less than an hour to Oudtshoorn in the Klein Karoo - absolutely perfectly placed. Not to mention 300 meters from golden beaches, surrounded by indigenous forests and striking lagoons. In fact, the Garden Route and Klein Karoo area itself is the hotel`s greatest attraction. Its a Mecca for sport and adventures: the city of George is only about 10 minutes drive from our front door and the airport is about 15 minutes away, and Wilderness is part of the unfenced Garden Route National Park and with some of the world`s most popular walks and trails.
All of this makes The Wilderness Hotel perfect for niche markets like birders, mountain bikers, golfers and for tour companies too, of course.
