“Weekend stay in Sabie”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

We stayed in February 2013 and were greeted by friendly staff that showed us to our rooms. The rooms are fairly standard with few luxury items. The hotel is set in lower Sabie with great views of the pine forests and quite a lot of space to roam around and a swimming pool. Some of the dishes on the restaurant's menu are not as good as some others.

We arrived to be checked in swiftly by a lovely lady and then given a show around of the beautiful hotel. We decided to eat in sports bar area that night but they had a conference on and the crowd was very noisy, so Jones said we could eat in the restaurant and still eat of the bar menu, which was lovely and worth the wait.
We will stay here again! Rooms beautiful and view is amazing.....nice treat!

We stayed here in 1998 on a trip to Kruger and the hotel has made some changes however for the most part there is little exciting to report. The rooms are sparse, the towels almost worn out and the food just so-so. This is definitely a two or three star location. Most of the people in our section of the hotel were cooking outdoors and from breakfast there were very few customers in the restaurant. It was very hot and the A/C for the most part was struggling and not keeping anything cool. There are not many places to stay in Sabie and this may be one of the best locations. We chose not to eat dinner at the hotel and opted for the old train car located in downtown Sabie.

My hubby and I stayed here and held our wedding at the small chapel onsite. We had the reception here as well and hosted family and friends. It was such an amazing stay and of course memorable for all the right reasons. We loved the beautiful chapel and with everything right there on site and close it was such a great experience. The "honeymoon" room (not sure what it is called) but it was so nice with a great canopied bed and the large spacious bathroom with the private patio was perfect for getting ready for the wedding. We lounged by the pool the day before and enjoyed the calm relaxed feel. it is a great location to explore the area as well. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here. The owner and staff were also very accomodating and made sure that were we well taken care of. Loved it!!

My family and i recently stayed at the three star for a breakaway of 5 days.
On arrival we were greeted by a receprtionist that ensured that our Check in was done quick and professional.
We booked a self-catering unit that is situated next to the river that created a very relaing atmosphere.
The unit had everything we needed, from an lovely large kitchen / open plan lounge area.
We decided to have breakfast at the restaurant two of the mornings. The buffet that was served had a lovely variety for a continental breakfast. The staff was very profeesional and made us feel at home instantly.

In the afternoons after spending the day exploring the panorama route we had an excellent lunch at the pool .
To sum up our experience i would say that:
*The floreat is great value for money,and i would truely recommend it to anyone who needs a break from the hectic city life.

Room Tip: I would recommend the Self-catering units next to the River
