Ideal for family hlliday on budget”
Quaint complex with rondavels and traditional rooms overlooking river and pool , tennis courts and water sports. Large restaurant and games room with events and music.5 mins from sea and beach. Shows its age but its quaintness history, suprrb vkews and reasonable prices can appeal . Pay on arrival. Lots of parking space.

Good value hotel along the Garden Route.”
Ideal hotel for breaking journey on the Garden Route. We last used this hotel over thirty years ago and if it wasn’t reasonable, it wouldn’t have still been in existence now! Staff most welcoming, rooms adequate and clean, good price for overnight stay, food well cooked with plenty of choice, quiet location.

Great room, serene location”
I spent an extra night here once I saw the view from my river facing room. So serene! The hotel is also far from the N2 highway where other hotel guests may hear the N2 traffic. The hotel has its own canoes so you can use it for free. Eden Adventures is on site if you plan to do more adventurous activities. Good wifi in the common areas. Friendly staff. Safe parking. Just don't stay in room 10 (the first room I was given facing the parking - I found it a little mouldy). Without hesitation the receptionist moved me to room 28 on the river which was much better (so good that I extended the night). If in Wilderness make sure you check out the Map of Africa Viewpoint which is a 10 minute drive up one of the mountains. That view is worth your trip there!

Staff, breakfast and cleanliness
We thoroughly enjoyed it. I was becoming a bit sceptical when I read some of the reviews but, bracing myself for the worst, I was pleasantly surprised. We are seriously considering coming back again this coming December holiday. The only difference is that we intend staying longer this time.

Stay at Fairy Knowe”
Location, Food, Friendly & helpful staff
It was nice. We arrived very late & called them multiple times but they were all accomodating & helping.The other couple who were travelling us found they had a problem with the shower so they changed the room & provided them with a bigger room. So overall i was happy with the choice i made. Will recommend it.

Fantastic & Pleasant stay”
location, spacious, price
We loved every minute of the Fairy Knowe, we booked the family rondavel with a view which was absolutely perfect for a family of four with children ages 10 & 12. The children had the freedom to canoo, ride bikes, swim and play tennis, as we are city slickers it was a great pleasure for the children to run around freely in a safe casual environment. The daily breakfast was highly appreciated and delicious to such an extent that we attempted dinner one evening. If you are the camping type family that enjoys the great outdoors and are not hassled by comfortable beds etc. then this is the place for you. Absolute value for money. I was reluctant to write a review as this kind of establishment should be kept a secret. Thank you Fairy Knowe staff we will without a doubt return one day and recommend to our friends and family!

overnight stay”
probably location and convenience
as an overnight stop it was nothing more than adequate.If we ever used it again at this time of the year we would ensure that we take our own hot water bottles.We also got the impression that the hotel is pet friendly ,if this is the case they should advertise as such and one could then make the choice as to wether to stay there or not

Comfortable stay”
Friendly and helpful staff, river offers great paddling activities, bed was firm and comfortable
Satisfactory. The hotel is old and could do with refreshing the furnishings, etc, but other than that, it's comfortable and seems well suited to a family vacation. The resturant breakfast was okay, but we sought out more interesting options in the nearby Wilderness town center.
