We had the use of the brand new apartment, very nice and clean and afforded us the opportunity of self catering. This was our third time and we have been comfortable each time. We loved the balcony for our evening "sundowners". The only issue was that of two single beds, we would have preferred a double.

Secluded, central and private set in a panhandle away from the main road, this guest house is perfect for those seeking the beauty of the surrounding area that is Sabie. We had an awesome 2 night stay where we were treated like royalty. The convenience of having all the amenities within walking distance, makes this a perfect weekend getaway. The... More

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.

Hi We have stayed at Forest view many times +/- 7 times and recommended it to friends. This time was disappointing. Issues are: 1) The pillows are horrible. 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).
