I have over the years stayed in many B&Bs and this rates as one of the best from the moment we arrived to when we left.I will certainly refer the establishment to my friends

Very nice accommodation although a bit expensive for what you get. Was warmly welcomed, although not shown around the room so didn't know there was a bar fridge in the room which I felt could have been better stocked.

What a beautiful spot to spend a night. Relaxing and tranquil.  The hostess is delightful.  Will be back. Value for money.

Waterside Lodge is the perfect stop over in the Wilderness, set in a great location overlooking the lagoon and close enough to the village. Nora was a fantastic host. The en suite room was fantastic. The breakfast superb. My daughters and I enjoyed walking the board-walk and cycling for kilometers along the lagoon road soaking up the beautiful surroundings. All in all a terrific experience!

It was the most beautiful room with the best views. we were treated with 5star service. We where camping the day before and all our equipment rained wet so we had to set out everything at the Waterside Lodge. They where so helpful about everything. You also have to have the breakfast it is amazing and they have the best feather duvet, wish I could live there forever.PS.There is a restaurant close by called Cocomo :)they have the most amazing cocktails, chicken livers and fish platters. their service is just as amazing.
