Anne also isssued us with a map and gave us excellent recommendations on what to see and where to eat in Sabie. Highly... More

What a perfect place! Reception was warm and welcoming. Rooms were spacious and clean and bathrooms were huge! Great location in the centre of Sabie and next to a fantastic restaurant. Great place for a huge party of people or even just a couple. We loved the decor .. Was cosy and very South African.

This is an amazing place for a stay, very centrally located, with very clean rooms and a fully equipped kitchen. The deck outside the First floor rooms have a very good view and seating arrangement. Value for money.

Long past their replacement date. 2) The bed in room 2 needs replacement, it is lumpy and very soft. 3) The linen is also looking old, the duvet cover had a hole... More

We hope you will consider returning and... More

Clean, but small room, standard bathroom (nothing fancy), good value for money although breakfast is not included (90 ZAR, which is quite expensive, but the breakfast was good). Very nice and big deck with views of the mountains, close to the two main restaurants (Woodsman & Fig Tree).

Thank you for your positive review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us at Forest View Guest House. Our larger rooms are only a few rand more than the smaller Room 3, if they are available, I would suggest the future guests to book Room 2 or Room 1 which is even larger than Room 2. I am... More

Nice place to stay. Clean and comfortable room. Large living room and kitchen with TV. Good restaurants near the hotel (walking distance). A little expensive but I don't regret. Nice area to visit with lots of things to do.
