+ 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.
