I booked a room in the Hillwatering Country House in advance by email. The communication was great in addition to hospitality. Room was clean, great view from the porch, decent breakfest and the owner provide useful info. Recommanded!

Big bedroom with lovely deck and views across to the forests and mountains. Very comfortable and peaceful. Ane and Riana were wonderful hosts and very helpful with their suggestions and daily input on weather! Great breakfasts and location. Excellent base for day trips to the many scenic attractions (waterfalls, mountain passes, view sites and historical towns) within a 50 km... More

My husband and I spent one night at Hillwatering Country House on our way to Kruger National Park. 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

We spent one night in Hillwatering Country House while coming back from Kruger National Park and our experience was awesome. Facility is a luxury country house and owners are extremely helpful, positive and supportive. I find it the main differentiation of this place. I asked extra bed inside of a double room because there was no twin room and they... More

We found this B&B to be lovely. Ane and Rhianna, the owners, were outgoing, helpful and took great pride in their property. The breakfast was wonderful and the location and views of the mountains and waterfalls were beautiful. It was clean and quiet and very cozy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guesthouse, and we plan to stay there next... More

This hotel is run by a very friendly Dutch couple who bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Our room was very large and luxurious with a very large balcony with a view over a lush garden. This was a lovely place to relax after staying in the Kruger National Park which sometimes felt extremely Spartan in its accomodation.
