Wonderful personal service from Riana and Ane - welcomed in the driveway on arrival; advice on where to eat and what to see; keen to know what we did during the day and or eating out experiences; personal send-off when we left. Wonderful breakfast, arranged on the plate as a smiley face. All amenities in the room and bathroom, and... More

A friendly welcome and excellent location plus very good value for money. Good stopping off point to break the journey between Kruger and Joburg plus access to the Blyde River Canyon which is well worth a detour. As the world's lightest sleeper I found the barking dogs a bit of a problem but the other three members of our group... More

It was such an amazing stay. Owners were so helpful and friendly. They told us about all of the spots surrounding, suggested a great place for dinner. Perfect stay between Jburg and Kruger park at the beginning of the panorama route!

We had a great and spacious room on the first floor with an even better view from our own terrace on the mountains. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. Ane provided us with lots of... More

Sabie is the perfect start to explore the wonders of the panorma route and Ane, your host at Hillwatering county house is the perfect source for information where to go on your trip and where to eat and he provides you with a lot of excellent Information about the area you will find in no travel guide

If you are in the Sabie area this is a great place to stay. Rooms are large & beautifully appointed; set in landscaped gardens. Owners are so helpful with maps, ideas etc. Breakfast extra special. Enjoy

Good nights rest with little technology No TV makes it the perfect place to find peace in ones self. The owners are from the Netherlands and are very friendly. Because I'm leaving early tomorrow morning they even made me a breakfast pack for the road.

My friend and I stayed for two nights and the hosts were really accommodating with some last minute changes in our plans which was just great. The twin room was spacious and clean and everything that was needed. And the veranda was a brilliant place to relax in the peace and quiet.

The host were very friendly and knew a lot about South Africa. Sabie was not a great place. So this was an awesome pit stop on the panaroma route. Rooms were clean and sheets were great and electronical. But very basic (also in design) though.
