Historical Traveler Reviews Cinnamon Boutique Guest House Wilderness
went here for 2 nights,stayed 3,and will stay longer next time! you have to experience this beautiful place to appreciate it. the decor is magnificent,the bed rooms best i have ever seen,and are a great tribute to co owners desmond &johan who went out of there way to make our stay so memorable. the breakfasts were fantastic,and the setting with the beautiful view of the forest and sound of the birds &running water fantastic.not to be missed,good value to,
Get off the N2 here
Not immediately appetising due to the close proximity of the N2 (and the roadworks when we were there). But once inside the ambiance changes. It's beautifully furnished and equipped and managed with unfussy charm and efficiency.
An average choice of restaurants (in our view the italian is best) but Cinnamon are busy opening their own restaurant.
A perfect situation for a break in the busy schedule of car travel along the garden route. We decided to take long walks along a magnificent beach and also through the Wilderness walking trails.
Understated but in our view a far better place to stay than Plettenberg
An absolute gem!
Cinnamon Boutique is an absolute gem and a total surprise. Last year we passed through Wilderness on the N2 highway wihout stopping, but this year we spend 2 nights in Cinnamon and enjoyed absolute luxury. Demond and Johan are perfect hosts, always helpful and their advice on where to go, what to see, where to eat proved to be excellent.
The quality of everything in Cinnamon, from the furniture, the bedding, the pool, breakfast etc cannot be faulted.
If you are driving along the N2, do not pass Wilderness by without stopping, stay at Cinnamon Boutique guest house and enjoy some of the best hospitality we found anywhere in South Africa.
Einfach nur wohlfühlen!
Nach herrlichen Tagen ind er Wildnis (Sabi Sand) kamen wir einigermaßen frustriert nach Wilderness - waren wir doch inzwischen totale Einsamkeit und unendliche Weite gewohnt. Doch schon der Empfang im Cinnamon Boutige Hotel war herzlich und wir waren mehr als angenehm von der Großzügigkeit und Eleganz des Hauses überrascht. Auch die Zimmer und das Bad sind richtig groß und sehr gut ausgestattet.
Besonders schön fanden wir die sehr persönliche und doch zurückhaltende Betreuung und die besonders liebevolle Ausstattung sämtlicher Räume.
An der "Honesty-Bar" konnten wir uns jederzeit bedienen und das Frühstücksbuffet war eines der besten auf unserer Rundreise durch Südafrika.
Einziges kleines Manko ist der sehr kleine Pool - die Sonnenterrasse ist aber sehr einladend und zum tollen Sandstrand sind es nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß.
Wir können Das Cinnamon House jedenfalls nur uneingeschränkt empfehlen!!!

A* for Cinnamon Boutique
We stayed at the Cinnamon Boutique by default...our original hotel had double booked us and moved us to Cinnamon as compensation. And what a treat! We could not have asked for a better place to stay- 5* luxury it certainly is.
Just a 2-minute walk from the beach, bars and restaurants, the setting for the guest house is simply beautiful. The pool is surrounded by trees, shrubs and flowers. Breakfast is taken on the sun terrace, and includes a whole host of fresh fruit and cooked items. The communal areas are spacious, filled with ornate, grand furniture and a fabulous honesty bar.
Our room was huge and, again, beautifully furnished. The bathroom was immaculately fitted out with twin sinks, bath and a shower big enough for a rugby team! To top it all, we had two balconies overlooking the pool and surrounding mountains.
After staying in in 6 different places on our trip through the Garden Route, Cinnamon Boutique definitely comes out the clear winner. The only disappointment is that we couldn't stay longer.
One of the great 'finds' of our journey through southern South Africa. Spacious, immaculate, thoughtfully and tastefully designed and positioned adjacent to wonderful beaches and some good restaurants. An excellent breakfast is taken on the terrace by the pool or in the dining room. Sub tropical gardens offer shade and relaxation. The bedrooms and bathrooms are five star plus standard. The word 'Boutique' in the name does Cinnamon no favours. It should be 'Palace'. Johan, who designed Cinnamon, and Desmond are to be congratulated and thanked for providing my wife and I with such delightful hospitality.
The best place that I've ever stayed
Cinnamon Boutique Guest House, Wilderness, South Africa
Date 17 November 2006
Reviewer: David B. Uprichard, Broadstairs UK
I visited Wilderness on 6 November 2006 without any accommodation booked. A South African friend of mine advised that I should vist Wilderness and recommended the Cinnamon Guest House. He recommended it very highly but in my opinion he undersold it.
I arrived on spec and was given an extremely warm welcome by the staff. I was given the choice of rooms, which incidently were all magnificent. I was delighted by the quality of the rooms, first class aspect and furnishing with every comfort you could wish for.
Cinnamon is ideally located, in close proximity to the beach at Wilderness but also in easy travel of Plettenburg Bay, Kysnya, George, etc. The sea is in front but behind, you have the most scenic mountains. The hotel itself is buried in luscious green vegetation. This place should have been called 'Paradise' as 'Wilderness' doesn't seem appropriate.
The service was incredible - the hosts Johan and Des just could not be more affable.
I don't normally write reviews of places that I have stayed but this is exceptional. I had only intended to stay two nights in Wilderness but I just could not resist squeezing one extra night and Cinnamon was happy to accommodate me.
What a find!
What a find, Cinnamon Boutique Guesthouse on the Garden Route South Africa. Was suprised by the spacious newly decorated bedroom and equally large bathroom. Our room had 2 balconies with lovely views over the forest. The house itself is quiet and relaxing and even when full didn't feel overcrowded. Had a great time relaxing at the pool and the beach and restuarants were only a few minutes away. The service and staff were excellent and the hosts, Des and Johan, were very helpful regarding where to go and what to do. One of the best parts of the country - will definitely visit again.
Best Kept Secret In The Wilderness
All we can say is WOW. What a 5 star experience.
We have stayed in many Hotels/Guesthouses/B&B/Self Catering units etc etc along the Cape's Garden Route but without question none can compare with Cinnamon Boutique Hotel .
This was a truly memorable experience.
Situtated on the banks of a hill as u enter the famed Wilderness area u will be treated to a magnificent view of Wilderness village, the sea (which is just a few min away) and all the other beautiful surroundings that this area has to offer .
The Hotel is magnificently designed with amazing furnishings and decor (clearly no expense has been spared here) which makes your stay a truly palatial one.
It is owned and run by Desmond and Johan who clearly have mastered the art of communication , they will make u feel as if u are part of there family and will look after your every need.
I know that i may seem to be carrying on and on, but my wife and i feel that it is important that the "Best Kept Secret" in the Wilderness is a secret no longer.
If u r travelling in South Africa or just want a weekend away u will be doing yourselves a great injustice by not spending a few nights at this wonderful place. Trev and Sandi
The place has everything
I do not write reviews that often (must try harder!) and have found the level of accomodation in South Africa to be high. However I have just finished a week's round trip to the Garden Route from Capetown and came across a place that is special. Located one minute from the awesome beach, it sits on an elevated position amongst forest with the sound of exotic birds. I arrived at night and the place is visually stunning from the outside entering across a platform passing the nice pool and jacuzzi. But its the spaciousness of the public rooms and particularly the bedrooms (mine was about 50 square metres) thats makes the place unusual. Immaculately decorated, faultless cleanliness and everything looks brand new. I have an enormous balcony on which to soak up the nature Desmond and Johan are delightful hosts and made me feel very welcome indeed- so thanks again to them. There is a very well stocked honesty bar. Breakfast included an extensive list of hot items which came freshly prepared . Faulltless and amazing value for money in my opinion..

... a leg up from one trainer I managed to get onto my knees and climb up onto her back and held on (and even shut my eyes) as Selly got up. We then walked one after the other in the most picturesque walk. As much as Selly the Gogo was slower then everyone else it kind of made my position in the group the best. Ahead of me in the line I could see 2 of the younger elephants who had just wandered along for the walk, ahead of then was Emma, then Max and up the front ...

We turned up at the Bungee Jumping place where I was shocked at the crazy people there who would do such a thing. I believe it was the worlds highest jump, but I might be off on that one. What a sight. I watched one, two, three people jump with not one ounce of "I want to do that" feeling. I was perfectly happy sitting in the lodge watching from a distance people jump off a bridge with a rope around their ...

We spent a long time doing all our washing by hand and by the time it was out to dry the sun was falling close to the horizon - typical!
We headed to the beach front to watch the crashing waves and a glimpse of the sunset. We spent a few hours there enjoying the waves roll in, creating a humongous spray on the deadly rocks - all the time hoping it might catch a seagull ...

We moved up to Citrusdal where there are is a spa complete with hot spring water at a very comfortable 43 degrees. Set in the mountains in Victorian pine lodges surrounded by ecalyptus trees and lots of flowering shrubs it is pretty idylic. There is a hot pool and cool pool as well as rock pools that are warm. Just as well really because Mum fell in the Supermarket on the way and has been hobbling painfully ever since! The waters eased it a bit but ...
