+ Everything :) From a friendly check by the owner to a cozy room, comfortable bed and location.

- We could hear our neighbors all the time, so providing ear plugs as a value add would be excellent :)

Clean sheets, towels and a room with an aircon in a very hot Upington is really all you need! We stayed at the bottom level, everything is wooden as you can see in the photos so it might be noisy for light sleepers as you can hear your neighbors if they walk or talk above average decibel. For the ladies, there was no hair dryer in the room, you might have to ask reception upfront for it. Breakfast is included, we were traveling early the next day and it was already prepared and stored for us in the fridge. Delicious and convenient!

Beautiful wooden thatch cozy and stylishly decorated large room. Attention to detail, with snacks and generous tea and coffee station. The hostess is warm and accomodating. Air conditioned, carpeted and really relaxing after a long days drive. Definitely a loved establishment, run with pride. Excellent value for money.

Well positioned on the main road entrance into Upington this newly built wooden lodge is ideal for over nighting in Upington. Rooms are clean and neat. Liked the parking right out front of the room as it is practical. The included breakfast was a la carte and very tasty. The owner personally made us breakfast. a nice view of the valley and great value for money.

It is very odd, as it doesn't feel that you are even close to Upington. It is quiet and relaxing. The wooden rooms and thatched roof feels like vacation.
The staff was very friendly and made n delicious breakfast.

The room was very comfortable. The shower did make n bit of a mess, but other than that is was perfect.

Will definitely visit them again.

The weather in upington was hot, but our room was perfectly cool. The bed was very comfortable. We loved the view and the wooden cozy feeling of the lodge. The breakfast was the best i ever had at a lodge. The owners/manager of the lodge was friendly and kind. The deck of the lodge was very nice to sit and drink coffee watching the view of the river bank and fields. We will definitely come and visit again soon me and my family!
