Simple but clean and comfortable room. Very friendly staff. Good restaurant and perfect (English) breakfast. Sabie is a good place for visiting the Panaroma route and Blyde river canyon. Woodsman is situated in the centre of the village with a good view around.

Always a great place to stay at, central to a beautiful part of the country. Service always good and staff are very friendly. Rooms are exactly what you need, spacious and clean. Quality of the food served is excellent.

The shower need a space for your soap and shampoo. The toilets floor in the corners are very dirty. There is ants in the room. The breakfast is excellent!! I can recommend the rooms but only for one night stay. The security gate at the entrance was broken and the manager on duty didn't say anything about it. We later...

We only stay at The Woodsman in Sabie because nothing else comes close to it. The owners and staff go out of their way to ensure that any special requests are immediately seen to, for example, I asked for another fan. The staff are extremely friendly plus the owners make you feel so welcome. The rooms are comfortable and if...

Good location and close to everything, and the rooms are neat and private, well furnished and clean. But we had a bit of issue with the baths as they are old :). On the day we were leaving there was also an issue on water shortage, water becomes a problem when there are more people bathing at the same time.

Hi thank you for your positive feedback. We did experience a water interruption from our municipality during your stay. We seldom have water issues perhaps twice a year due to lightning damage on the pump station. My apologies for that the water issue was resolved with in 4 hours.

The rooms were nice. Service was good. Food was also good. It was an awesome weekend where woodsman was the home Base for our biking trip. Things I didn't like was that there was no zero alcohol beverages like non alcoholic beers etc (most of sabie has this issue), and the shower could use a curtain for some privacy (this...
