This Guest house is situated right on the cliffs overlooking Wilderness beach so the views are fantastic. If possible, try and get the suite with the sea view at the top as it has a good sized balcony and lovely bathroom. The breakfast was great, especially as the sun was shining so we had it on the balcony. The owners...

Overlooking the sea with no other properties in-between. A superb beach with miles of fine white sand in both directions. Our room had a separate entrance and a deck with a west-facing view over the sea and ideal for sunset! Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights in this B&B in Wilderness. Location is great, right on the cliffs overlooking the beach and the sea. It's a very large house, with big common rooms and even a small gym. All is clean and spacious. Rooms all have sea view, either from a balcony or a terrace. Free coffee and tea, and an honesty-bar...

We found by chance and were delighted with our luck. Not only Swiss-run but Italian Swiss-run. Hey that;s unusual. We had great room, great hospitality, and great breakfast on the patio. Internet use and Library was a bonus. Wonderful view over the beach - dolpins went past on cue. This B&B deserves to be high in the Wilderness rankings. Wished...

Go for the deluxe suite if it's available, but you can't go wrong with a view from any of the rooms. Breakfast is delightful and hearty and a great chance to meet more guests.
