Room was fine with gigantic bathroom! Did not do breakfast but just a short walk to a bar/restaurant, The Woodsman, which did a very good breakfast. Also within easy walking distance of town centre, other good restaurants and the excellent Sabie Brewing Company which makes, and serves, very good "real ale" and decent food.

We felt very welcome and Ann was such a helpful host! Perfect Service. The Forest View is perfectly situated downtown Sabie and Restaurants and Shops are in Walking distance. The only downside was the cold invthe house.. no real heating during Winter months.

We came from Johannesburg and just had an overnight stay before heading to Kruger. Very nice house, well equiped kitchen, nice terrace and lovely rooms. Helpful owner who even gave us an upgrade since the house wasn't fully booked. Great Setting! Check out some waterfalls and enjoy the landscape before you go to Kruger!

Our little apartment was a brilliant place to stay as a family of 4. It was beautifully spacious, and had all the creature comforts of home. The extra little touches, like wifi and a kids channel on the dstv bouquet (to help wind the kids down in the evening), makes it a place we will definitely recommend to anyone and...

My Family and I we had a great time. There was a misunderstanding on the number of guests but I must say within few seconds we were given a family cottage which was worth more than what we paid. thank

We found a riendly welcome and a clean house. The rooms were big enough and each room has an own toilet and shower. Wifi was working, which is in general not always the case! Children would have stay longer in this house.

We loved our - unfortunately- short stay at the forest view guesthouse. The room was nicely decorated and had a lot charm. Good matress, comfortable and warm bedlinnen, a wooden floor, space, wifi, large bathroom, everything we needed after a long journey to get there. Anne gave us a very warm welcome, even after we made a lot of changes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Forest View Guest House & Self Catering rests in Sabie - a small Tourist and Forestry village nestled in a softly pristine valley hosting the renowned Sabie River. Endless Pine plantations feather the Drakensburg escarpment mountains surrounding this charming little town, with its variety of Restaurants, Pubs, Shops and treats around every corner. Dining venues vary from a renovated Train Diner Carriage to the Sabie Brewery Co Restaurant, the infamous Wild Fig Tree, the African Elephant, Zano’s, and of course The Woodsman Pub & Restaurant. When the exquisite Waterfalls of Sabie have taken your breath away, and you embark on the wondrous Panorama Route with all of its amazing attractions, treat yourself to a Breakfast Picnic under the trees of Mac Mac Pools, and plunge into the crystal clear mountain stream Rock Pools, just 10km out of town. The Panorama Route offers such a wealth of spectacular attractions, it’s hard to decide which direction to take out of Sabie – the Kruger National Park being just 45km away down the twisting R536, upon which Bikers love to test their lean angles and take in the mossy, earthy smell of the riverbank as the road dips and turns, then snakes its way towards Hazyview and the Big Five. Stay at Forest View Guest House & Self Catering, where it’s hard to get enough of Sabie’s spectacular surroundings, and where there are plenty of wonders still in wait for those who love the outdoors. We have secure parking on the grounds and non-smoking accommodation. Smoking is however permitted on the deck and in the garden. For cycling enthusiasts, numerous Cycling and Mountain Bike challenges are held in and around Sabie, as well as the Long Tom Marathon for runners. Sabie also hosts the renowned SASOL Rally. We offer clean, comfortable and fully serviced - 2 x Double Rooms, 1 x Triple Suite, 1 x 4 Sleeper Self-Catering Apartment and 1 x 5 Sleeper-Self Catering Apartment. Groups of 7 or 16 persons welcome. Check In time is between 2pm and 7pm. Reception closes at 7pm. ... more   less
