The Fairy Knowe Hotel

Welcoming Guests Since 1924

The Fairy Knowe Hotel, affectionately referred to as ‘the grand dame’  of  Wilderness, has been welcoming guests since 1924. This landmark hotel was renovated in 2021 and is looking gracious and glorious once again!

A 20-minute drive from George airport and central to all tourist attractions. The perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route, it’s pristine beaches, indigenous forests, lakes, world-class golf courses, organic farmers markets, amazing water activities, hang-gliding, shark cage diving, hiking trails and fantastic birding opportunities all within a radius of 30 – 50 km.

The hotel is a birders paradise with over 280 species to be found here, of which the Knysna Loerie is a regular visitor.
