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 room you stayed in is having a shower installed within...

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...

There were many faults with our stay. No air conditioning although there was supposed to be. The Woodsman is at a T junction of a main road & heavy timber wagons were thundering past the room all day long & part of the night. It was VERY NOISY because the window needed to be open to cool the room. Breakfast...

We thank you for reviewing The Woodsman B&B. I was shocked to find out that your room was not cleaned. It is our policy to clean all rooms daily unless a guest requests otherwise. I spoke to the housekeeper and it seems there was some confusion. She informed me that the Do Not Disturb sign was on the door and...
