As a family of three, we spent 4 nights here at the Hillwatering Country Lodge. We were very lucky to have been given the two rooms upstairs. They were lovely and spacious and we even had a shared balcony to enjoy our glass of complintary sherry at the end of the day. The views were amazing over to the mountains and waterfalls.
As a single adult in the group, I had 3 single beds to choose from in my well appointed room. My parents had a large double room which was equally well furnished. The rooms had free wifi, tea and coffee making facilities, a well stocked and reasonably priced mini bar with wine and international adapter points.
The wonderful breakfasts are cooked to order by Hazel and there was a cold option.
Richard gave us some excellent tips of interest in the area and one our drives. Including Pilgrims Rest, Gods Window, Blyde River Canyon and the amazing Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre (I have written a separate diary on things to do in the Sabie/Nelspruit area)
The property is very maintained, the gardens are wonderful, the area is peaceful and Richard and Hazel are excellent hosts.
There are several good quality restaurants in driving distance and the tourist information in the town is a must stop, John was very charming.
Highly recommend and would stay again, if I ever find myself in the Sabie area.
