Wow - we were passing through Wilderness at about the time to find somewhere to spend the night and got very luck with finding the Wallow. A chance phone call for a one night stay turned into 3 nights and we wished we could have stayed longer... What a beautiful place, and Maureen and Dave made it a very special... More

I cannot recommend The Wallow Guest House more highly. We had family in George which couldn't accommodate us on this trip so we needed somewhere to stay. As we have to small children (6 ans 1) we needed something which was child friendly. Very well equipped, very clean and very quiet. Dave and Maureen were fantastic and accommodating.

It's low season and there were a number of places available along the garden route during the time when we were there. We decided on this one because we read the reviews and price-wise is very reasonable. The apartment is surprisingly big at this price range, have a wonderful sea-view and a lovely terrace. The only thing i dont like... More

The Wallow was a wonderful find. Set up above the village in a real country setting it offers awesome views and is peaceful and tranquil. The location is excellent in that it is a very short drive to local amenities, restaurants, shops, the beach etc, but set back from the busy N2, so you really feel like you are away... More

Set back from the "madding crowd", up in the outeniqua foothills above "wild"erness, this three star establishment offered us just what we were looking for!
