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.

We spent two nights here to recover from our safari in Krueger. Our room offered a nice view on the well maintained garden and the mountains in the background. The terrace was really nice, unfortunately we did not spent much time here as it was rather cold outside. Our room was equipped with a hairdryer, a kettle and complementary coffee... More

The Hillwatering Country House was chosen for a stop on our way to Krueger Park. Very nice house and room with mountain view. Hosts were very nice and shared a lot of useful information about the region.

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.
