Fantastic establishment and a very awesome host. We loved our stay, the view from the second floor was phenomenal and just a stone throw away from shops and the lovely Woodsman Pub and Restaurant. We will definitely visit again.

A nice location in Sabie with a view to the mountains. Big lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows and a big balcony. Comprehensively equipped for self catering. Manager was very friendly, helpful and professional. Self edited booklets "what to do and what to see in Sabie?" with comprehensive information. Unfortunately no breakfast available.

Reviews are so appreciated; thank you for taking the time. Self Catering guests are normally happy to make their own Breakfast, but if you remind me when you stay again, I'll arrange a treat for you. Kind regards, Heather

Excellent location, near the restaurants and in town center. Friendly, safe place to stay. A bit older, but everything is there and works. Large rooms en a large (communal) kitchen. The view from the room was superb.

Such an amazing stay that exceeded all expectation and would highly recommend Forest View Guest House to anyone passing through Sabie and proved to be such a great base camp to explore what the area had to offer. Great Staff that provided us with all the information and hidden secrets around and the location was absolutely incredible with everything you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Forest View Guest House & Self Catering rests in Sabie - a small Tourist and Forestry village nestled in a softly pristine valley hosting the renowned Sabie River. Endless Pine plantations feather the Drakensburg escarpment mountains surrounding this charming little town, with its variety of Restaurants, Pubs, Shops and treats around every corner. Dining venues vary from a renovated Train Diner Carriage to the Sabie Brewery Co Restaurant, the infamous Wild Fig Tree, the African Elephant, Zano’s, and of course The Woodsman Pub & Restaurant. When the exquisite Waterfalls of Sabie have taken your breath away, and you embark on the wondrous Panorama Route with all of its amazing attractions, treat yourself to a Breakfast Picnic under the trees of Mac Mac Pools, and plunge into the crystal clear mountain stream Rock Pools, just 10km out of town. The Panorama Route offers such a wealth of spectacular attractions, it’s hard to decide which direction to take out of Sabie – the Kruger National Park being just 45km away down the twisting R536, upon which Bikers love to test their lean angles and take in the mossy, earthy smell of the riverbank as the road dips and turns, then snakes its way towards Hazyview and the Big Five. Stay at Forest View Guest House & Self Catering, where it’s hard to get enough of Sabie’s spectacular surroundings, and where there are plenty of wonders still in wait for those who love the outdoors. We have secure parking on the grounds and non-smoking accommodation. Smoking is however permitted on the deck and in the garden. For cycling enthusiasts, numerous Cycling and Mountain Bike challenges are held in and around Sabie, as well as the Long Tom Marathon for runners. Sabie also hosts the renowned SASOL Rally. We offer clean, comfortable and fully serviced - 2 x Double Rooms, 1 x Triple Suite, 1 x 4 Sleeper Self-Catering Apartment and 1 x 5 Sleeper-Self Catering Apartment. Groups of 7 or 16 persons welcome. Check In time is between 2pm and 7pm. Reception closes at 7pm. ... more   less
