The lodge are lovely with awesome views overlooking Wilderness, Garden Route and the beach. Unfortunately, the chalets and its interior are so dirty and greasy - just gross. Looks like the floor has coffee and juice tracks of several previous guests. Also the dishes and the kitchen needs attention urgently - as well as the bathroom. Probably just an unfortunate...

Just for one night would have loved to stay longer. Amazing view from bed and balcony. Even if apartments are small they actually feel much bigger as terasse and open room to the roof widden the view. Some stairs have to be managed. Breakfast was good, options available by orders.

This accommodation location is unique, perched high above with unspoiled sea views. Service was friendly enough although we missed a 'thank-you and have a pleasant journey' upon check-out. The rooms look a little out-dated and a make-over wouldn't hurt. Pool and amenities are nice as are the little extras one can order upon booking, like barbecue or cheese-platter.

A cooked breakfast was included to our surprise and served to order hot. A lovely infinity pool...

Had a nice stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice views and bird life. Room neat. Bath also nice. Bath fills very slowly and shower is a bit of let down. Nice braai pack organized for us on our veranda overlooking the ocean

Dear Owner and Manager - Boardwalk Lodge Wilderness I've been thinking about this a couple of days and had decided that I had to bring this under your attention. We checked in on the 23 Dec for 6 nights and what a unpleasant stay. When we arrived we noticed a yellow mark on the duvet cover. I complained at reception...

Better place to stay over around George and Knysna. Nice view, quiet, nice breakfast, good restaurant around. Information centre nearby. Cool tree house style. Wooden walk, good security, available parking.
