We enjoyed our three night stay here, it was easy to find after coming over the Long Tom Pass. Room was very clean and a good size and large ensuite bathroom with noisy fan. It is about a 10 minute drive to restaurants. Breakfast was adequate and served on the veranda. I thought the seating arrangement was a bit strange...

Upon arrival was asked if I could be helped with my luggage. Relaxed atmosphere, really enjoyed the space of the room, and the view from the backyard. The breakfast was great, oh and the WIFI does actually work, not like the other places where it doesnt.

The owners truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. A proud establishment with well appointed room all with views over the gardens and mountains surrounding Sabie. Spacious rooms and all en suite. Having no TV in the rooms is a pity. This venue definitely does not cater to the business market as breakfasts are...

We booked this place for 3 nights and stayed for one. It has amazing views but, to be honest, it's difficult to find accommodation around here that doesn't. There was no heating in the room (despite this being stated on the website) and the temperature reached 5 centigrade- really unpleasant- it felt like we were kids back at university when...

Had a fantastic 4 night stay at Hillwatering and was made to feel right at home as soon as we arrived as a family of 5 in 3 separate rooms. The view alone blew my socks off- stunning scenery of the gardens and across to the mountains, full of bird life, our spotting ahead of Kruger park began early! Rooms...
