The Old Post Office Lodge offers 6 rooms situated directly above Pomodoro restaurant, in the heart of Wilderness. The accommodation is owned and managed by the same people as the popular restaurant below. The Old Post Office offers excellent value for individuals or couples, especially people staying on their own.


This is the perfect location for anyone who wants to stay right in the middle of the central area of Wilderness. With the nearest restaurant literally downstairs, there are also many other restaurants and bars within just a minute or two’s walk. The beach is just under five minutes’ walk away.

All rooms have balconies with some having views of the main road. Due to the central location and proximity to restaurants and bars, it’s not the quietest place to stay, so please consider this if you are specifically looking for somewhere peaceful.

All of the rooms are on the first floor and a flight of stairs needs to be climbed to get to all rooms.
