The hosts, Kevin & Elsie are very welcoming and friendly and the fact that Kevin made breakfast himself, was a great treat. The room was big with a lovely stoep and the view over the lakes was amazing 🌱

Interlaken Guest house is perched on a hill, overlooking the valley, lake and hills on the north side of the road, a short drive east from Wilderness. The guest rooms are on the top floor of the 3 storey building, accessed by a sloping drive and steps from the main road. The room was large, with easy chairs facing the...

Our room overlooked the beautiful lake at the rear, well away from the main road; so no road noise. The room was large with a separate shower, clean and sun blessed in the mornings. Soooo relaxing to look out at the serene lake far below. The breakfast was outstandingly good and Kevin's specials were a treat to look forward to....

We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely Guesthouse. The room was spacious and very clean with its own balcony and the most amazing panoramic view. Our hosts, Kevin and Elsie, could not have been more helpful and friendly and every morning a most delicious cooked breakfast was provided on the outdoor terrace. We will certainly stay here again.

Advertising a room of 30 m2 , but happened to turn out a room of 13 m2. Big disappointment, and the owners didn't want to compensate us for the wrong impression they gave us on the internet. The price of the 30 m2 did not shrink. B &B is just 30 meters of the motorway N2. That means you hear...

Hello Tanya, Thank you for your review. On your departure we had the room measured again in case of a discrepancy and the room is actually 32 m2 although it states 30 on Booking.com. Obviously this includes the bathroom as it is part of the room. Our price range is well below the average room rate in Wilderness . We...
