This place is ideally located as the first location offering (there's plenty in the area to choose from) when you enter Upington along the N14. So, after a long drive to the Northern Cape from Rustenburg, its location was ideal for us as a midway stop to where we had planned to visit. We chose this place for its value for money package and how it easily accommodated our little one. For the price, we also had breakfast included.

We opted for an upgrade of our room, to one with both a shower and bathtub and we were gladly granted that request. A bathtub makes bath time easier with a little one. The room we were given was upstairs (number 3) and had an extra mattress prepared for us. The room was so spacious that our little one could easily play around with his scooter inside. We're glad we had enough space in the car to pack his favorite mobile toy for him to enjoy here!

The room had pretty much everything you can think of in it for functionality purposes - aircon, comfy bed, bar fridge, extra blanket, safe, study table and chair, couch, complimentary water, DStv, clean and fresh towels. The TV is cleverly positioned away from the study area to give privacy to those using the table and chair for reading or writing purposes. The DSTV also had many channels available, which meant that our little one could watch any cartoon channel he wanted to, all day long. The room also had a tea and coffee station, with snacks and drinks, the snacks and drinks were available for purchase. The room had a wooden floor and an outside balcony area.

The area is also safe with gated access and limited covered parking. The atmosphere around the place is one that is peaceful, in touch with nature and calming. There's lush green grass and plants around with a massive pool and beautiful ponds all around with fish to see. There are two friendly ducks, which our son loved to see and greet each time he saw them and there are some springboks at a distance to see as well when you walk around the area to take everything in. The animals were a special touch that the place offered and our son really enjoyed that element to the place.

There was unfortunately no jungle gym (play area) as I had expected from the online images I have seen. The place did not also offer dinner/lunch but that was highlighted at check in. The room also did not have a microwave to warm up the takeaway food but was not a deal breaker. The place is located close to the Kalahari Mall and an Engen garage for filling up.

Browns Manor was an ideal accommodation spot for us as we had planned to visit the Augrabies Falls, which is located 1 hour and 30 minutes drive away from the National Park. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it.

A really efficient, well run, beautiful boutique hotel with all you need in one space on business.

I am vegetarian so a great deal of effort is made to accommodate me which is always a treat.

It is also a charming space with Springboks, Ducks and a Mongoose family to keep you amused while you work outside on the terrace in the evenings.

A glorious pool for those really hot days. With the ducks looking on in jealousy because it is salt water and the obviously don’t like the salt 😂. They are so sweet and keep you company while you are out there.

All amenities were outstanding, staff efficient and a delight to deal with.

It has become one of my favourite places to stay.

A very good stay. Nice garden with shade. Very comfortable bed and nice room. Breakfast was very good, one of the best we had in South Africa this year. Helpful staff.
The property is on the edge of town so it’s a few minutes drive to restaurants etc. We knew this - being away from the centre was one reason for booking here, quiet and peaceful.
This was a great stop on the way to Kgalagadi, and on the way back as well. We would definitely recommend and stay here again.

I expected a little bit more of this award winning guesthouse. Swimming pool area needs some maintenance. Rooms are small with a great bed. I thought there is a restaurant but probably due to only a few guests you have to go into Upington. Breakfast is ok.

We recently spent 1 night at Browns Manor on our way to Kgalagadi. It is a charming little green oasis and the owners made us feel very welcome. We did not have a reservation and arrived at about 6 pm but they were happy to accommodate us. The rooms are comfortable with lovely percale linen and airconditioning. Our rate included breakfast. We were told that they normally have a dinner menu, but on this particular evening they only served oxtail as they were expecting a party of 8. The food was excellent and the wine very well priced. We would definitely go back there in future.

My tips will be so insignificant for a devoted Team which manages the Brown's Manor. I can only encourage you to maintain your excellent work. You only belong to one single level. TOP. I am sure you already know how special that is.
