No value for money! It's expensive for what you get. The rooms were below average, the towels smelled and the tv in the room had such bad signal. The food was dismal! The two upstairs family units obviously share a geyser as once there were other people in the room next door, we had no hot water. We had paid... More

We spent just one night here. The grounds are immaculate and so beautiful – right on the banks of the Sabie River. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. We arrived during load shedding. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The trout is delicious as is the breakfast and the menu has a wide variety of choices. Thank you... More

The area around Sabie is beautiful and the accommodation provided at Floreat is comfortable and reasonable for the price. It is clean and reasonable wheelchair facilities. It does look a little under-decorated in parts however the self catering chalets are modern and tidy. The buffet breakfast and dinner is also very good, although we were not impressed with the evening... More

Morning has broken over a misty Sabie Valley - The Floreat provided warm hospitality to match the ambience of Sabie - Great Service, Great Staff. Cool misty mornings in the Sabie Valley are the perfect prelude to a baking African summer's day.

We had high hopes for the Floreat in Sabie. Firstly, the accommodation is okay, it would be suitable for a family staying together. There are multiple beds in our cottage and there is kitchen space to cook. Most importantly, the reception staff is friendly and helpful. Beyond that things fall apart. First, our rooms were dirty, like in a poorly... More

The location of the hotel is in the hillside town of Sabie in good reach of many beauty spots and of course Kruger National Park. From the initial booking in I was a little concerned as the reception areas garden was full of weeds and the large pots holding shrubs had tab ends in them. Our room smelled of damp... More

We enjoyed the quite and beautiful riverside setting of this lodge and our suite was spacious, clean and well-appointed. The breakfast buffet was nothing to write home about and the restaurant atmosphere was stiff and outdated. The bar-lounge area was nicely decorated and furnished but the separate bar and pool room was a bit tacky. Service was good but impersonal... More
