Excellent location, and was probably a great place once, but compared to other places we stayed at on the Garden Route at this price range, the accommodation was somewhat sub par. The breakfast was tasty, but limited selection and the machine coffee again, is not usually encountered at this price point, and was quite poor. Excellent views though, and great,...

The Boardwalk Lodge was ok. Unfortunately My bathroom was smelling very bad. WE had a great support from the staff for finding alternative activities because the weather was bad and we couldn't go to the beach.

We liked our one night stay at the Boardwalk Lodge in a huge duplex house (2 bedrooms with ensuite bathroom), great living room area, 3 balconies and a nice kitchen. The balconies offered great views of the ocean and the valley, and a wonderful sunset.

Fantastic service, breathtaking views and very romantic. Breakfast was well presented and tasty. The manager on duty was very friendly and helpful. I will recommend The Boardwalk for the best getaway for any couple , romantic , quiet and private. The room were tastefully decorated and well equipped with everything one might need.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very good value for money. Breakfast is good. Staff are very helpful, accommodating and friendly. We wanted to braai one afternoon and the staff provided all that was needed. The view is one of the best and the roaring waves at night is calming. Will definitely return.

Excellent location (for those who drive by themselves)!!! Close to many atractions - little and cozy restaurants and bars - with great view from the bedrooms. The staff were efficient, and very friendly!!! Resumindo: tivemos ótimos momentos passeando por essa região, e adoramos ter nos hospedados nessa pousada bem localizada, e agradável. Thank´s a lot!!!!

Was driving from PE to Cape Town along the Garden Route and needed a stop over to break the journey up. Would choose Boardwalk again no problem. Beautiful setting amongst the trees over looking the ocean. The house was spacious, clean and in a good state of repair. Kids adored it as it seemed like it was a tree house.

The lodge are lovely with awesome views overlooking Wilderness, Garden Route and the beach. Unfortunately, the chalets and its interior are so dirty and greasy - just gross. Looks like the floor has coffee and juice tracks of several previous guests. Also the dishes and the kitchen needs attention urgently - as well as the bathroom. Probably just an unfortunate...

Just for one night would have loved to stay longer. Amazing view from bed and balcony. Even if apartments are small they actually feel much bigger as terasse and open room to the roof widden the view. Some stairs have to be managed. Breakfast was good, options available by orders.

This accommodation location is unique, perched high above with unspoiled sea views. Service was friendly enough although we missed a 'thank-you and have a pleasant journey' upon check-out. The rooms look a little out-dated and a make-over wouldn't hurt. Pool and amenities are nice as are the little extras one can order upon booking, like barbecue or cheese-platter.
