We came in very late after some car trouble, so we could not enjoy everything the hotel offered. But we received friendly service from the reception right through to the cleaners. The next morning we received a great breakfast.

Any person that want to relax and feel you somewhere out in the country must try this place. It's quiet and peaceful and offer some adventure sport as well. Outstanding service and good food. Will see me again.

The sunrises were the highlight of the stay and something to see!. The facility is old and a bit rundown but clean and the staff very friendly. The location and the staff go a long way to compensate for the "rustic" facility.

Needs maintenance, but peaceful relaxed setting. lots to do for outdoos spirited folk. Old and elegant with a wordly charm, the hot water needs to be sorted out as well as the shower curtians.On the whole good value for money, with a great breakfast to boot.

We enjoyed our time there, so much to do and see the only regret was not staying longer as 3 nights was not enough. It was Very relaxing, we especially enjoyed all the outdoor activities, fishing, canoeing, tennis, bike riding. The food was great and the staff super friendly. We will definitely be back! :))

The location is beautiful, the bar Bongo's in town was fun. The breakfast at Fairy Knowe was lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful. We loved all the old paraphilia on display in reception and in the dining hall.

Great location and outdoor experience. We've been taking the family to Fairy Knowe for about 25 years and it is one of our favorite holiday destinations. Very central, with so much to do in and around Wilderness.
