This is a great choice for staying in the Sabie area. The property is clean and spacious with nicely decorated rooms, and a balcony and view of the mountains. The owners could no have been more friendly and helpful. I would return here if I visit Sabie again.

Ane and Riana are wonderful hosts. Not only is the house comfortable but they are also very knowledgeable and helpful in terms of tourist information for the surrounding areas. We were initially surprised that there was no TV in the room, but warmed up to the idea as it created a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, which complimented the views nicely.

Big bedroom with lovely deck and views across to the forests and mountains. Very comfortable and peaceful.

Excellent base for day trips to the many scenic attractions (waterfalls, mountain passes, view sites and historical towns) within a 50 km... More

We spent one night in this B&B and left it with a double feeling. Rooms and bathroom are clean and huge with all needs provided. Hosts are friendly and trying quiet hard to please you. They advised us for dinner a very nice restaurant and supported us with our route planning the next day. We had a room at the... More

This was actually our second stop as my husband wanted us to explore Sabie and Hazyview before finally proceeding to Kruger. The place is very near town and is easily accessible. It is also in a nice looking neighborhood. Our room was... More

We spent a night here on the way to Kruger National Park. It is a perfect stopping point between Johannesburg and Kruger, and a great starting point for the Panorama Drive. Everything about the inn was very nice - spacious, clean, and great breakfast. Ane, the new owner, works very hard to make your stay comfortable. He had great recommendations... More

We spent two nights at Hillwatering in April 2014 en route to Kruger National Park. From the minute we arrive Ane and Rhianna took great care of us and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Their local area knowledge was more than helpful and meant we managed to visit all of the local... More
