Laughing Waters Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2012

My fiancée and I stayed at Laughing Waters for two nights and I must say we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. There was a warm welcome waiting for us, and a very spacious room set in a peaceful and beautiful surrounding. When our self-drive around the Kruger park was taking a little longer than planned we even got a phone-call to ask if we were OK. Everything we asked for was taken care of for us, including a lovely breakfast pack as well as directions and recommendations for our Kruger park drive, a nice romantic dinner and a breakfast fit for a king the day we left. If you are looking for a personal level of customer service, I couldn't recommend it more to anyone thinking of staying in Hazyview.

The welcome i got when we arrived was better than a 5 star hotel. Both Carol and Gavin where the best host and hostess. My husband and i had the best weekend away for the first time in 6 years. This was home away from home. The sourounding area with the indiginous plants is peacefull i will most definatly be going back advised Carol that I will be going back to them in October. Gavin your cooking is one of the best that I have had in a longtime. Youre friendlyness and hospitality has touched both Steve and my hart and we will most certainly take the time to promote your place in Hungary with all our friends.
all the best

If there is a ANY place to stay in Hazyview...and you WANT to be 5 ***** spoilt, WANT peace and quiet and still be close to the KRUGER..., then this is the only place to stay!!!! The extra perk that Laughing Waters is far and yet so near to everything in Hazyview. You stay on a Lemon Farm!! The hosts are wonderful, caring and what a chef Gavin is!! The breakfast amazing...and even the picnic breakfast hamper...just the best! Thankyou for a GREAT stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in the beautiful Kingfischer bedroom. Ample space , huge bathroom...and a wonderfully big...

Stayed 1 night before heading to Blyde Canyon. Laughing Waters is a tasteful decorated Guest house. The place is incredibly beautiful surroundings by Garden and flowers. Among this beautiful place the friendliness and hospitality of Gavin N Carol is very impressive as well as awesome breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms nearby the pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Laughing Waters Guest House in Hazyview is tucked away in the heart of the picturesque Sabie Valley on the banks of the Sabie River. Journey through the lemon trees to arrive in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, surrounded by tall trees and populated with an abundance of birds, Laughing Waters Guest House is a quiet haven, with a familiarity and comfort that makes you feel quite at home.On checking into Laughing Waters Guest House Hazyview, one will be settling into a retreat that boasts high archways, and a Tuscan ambience, a building that evokes an antiquated awe. Through the landscaped courtyard one will find their room with views of the beautiful surroundings. The location of Laughing Waters Guest House, close to the river, ensures slightly cooler temperatures within the valley; this comfortable micro climate makes Laughing Waters Guest House especially welcoming for a Lowveld destination in the hot summer months. The riverine forest and indigenous bush surrounding the farm, the proximity to Hazyview and the Kruger National Park and the occasional sighting of hippos makes Laughing Waters Guest House feel slightly "wild," but still very civilised! We have an in-house tour operator to assist with any tours / transfers you need planned. ... more   less
